#11 What holds you back from fulfilling your Purpose

In this episode I go over the 3rd step towards Charity, letting go of envy. When we are so focused on what others are doing or what others have and worrying about what we don’t have and what we aren’t doing we miss out on our opportunities to become who we are meant to be. I talk about how comparison, jealousy, coveting, envying and so many others hold us back from reaching our full potential and from connecting with others. Sister you were meant for GREAT things and your worth and potential NEVER CHANGES! Love you all

Envy stems from selfishness “Unchecked selfishness thus stubbornly blocks the way for developing all of the divine qualities: love, mercy, patience, long-suffering, kindness, graciousness, goodness, and gentleness. Any tender sprouts from these virtues are sheared off by sharp selfishness. Contrariwise, brothers and sisters, I cannot think of a single gospel covenant the keeping of which does not shear off selfishness from us!”
