God is great! And that’s just the beginning of all of the praise you may have for the All in All.
Nonetheless, it’s possible to have a really disgusting, limiting cord of attachment to God.
This vileness doesn’t come from God directly, of course. It’s like what happens with so many other truly horrible cords of attachment. The degree of being horrible — what I call “Scoring 10 out of 10 points” on my Yuckiness Index for Cords of Attachment — is directly proportional to one’s degree of caring about the cordee.
When you’re strongly invested emotionally in a relationship, that’s like driving a car in fifth gear at 80 mph. You’ll respond bigger to bumps on the road.
Compared to what? Compared to a “No big deal” relationship. That would be more akin to driving a car in first gear at 2 mph. Same bump in road, smaller response. You can be quite sure that certain relationships involve major cords of attachment, even if you never think about the cordee usually. That would definitely include at least one form of God.
In the case of God, even an atheist will have a cord of attachment that’s a 10 on the Yuckiness Index. It can be rife with garbage deposited from other sources than God, of course. Same for a cord of attachment to Jesus, to Buddha, to Archangel Michael. Cord items recycle within us 24/7 until the last minutes of a lifetime. We can have horrible messed-up cords of attachment to Divine Beings. Which doesn’t hurt them but us.
For instance, I have had clients who decided to leave the Catholic church. This really, really upset their mothers… to such a degree that these mothers tried seriously hard to re-convert their kids. When this failed, the mothers had nervous breakdowns. For one such client, Joe, guilt from his mother’s emotional breakdown did become part of his cord of attachment to God. Without that bit of cord-cutting, Joe would have kept going through that guilt-ridden dance until the very last minute of his life.
Today, you may notice that the world has not ended — as predicted would happen just a couple of days ago, May 21, 2011. In celebration, I’m going to share with you the contents of two very different cords of attachment to God. As always, details about each client has been disguised. As usual, I first received permission from these courageous clients, both of whom are doing much, much better in life after releasing distorted old energies related to that very special relationship.
