The Magnificent Truths about Guilt, Being Connected and Faith, by Daniel Parmeggiani!

Daniel-Parmeggiani-Headshot-cropToday, I have the great pleasure of being the host on Day 5 of Daniel Parmeggiani’s Virtual Blog Tour, whose new book, The Magnificent Truths of Our Existence, is currently celebrating its official launch.

Daniel Parmeggiani is a modern-day spiritual teacher whose approach is unaligned with any particular religion or tradition. Driven by intense psychological turmoil when he was younger, Daniel discovered within himself a deeper reality that he says not only saved his life, but also showed him the way to permanent happiness and inner peace. Those revelations became the foundation of his book, The Magnificent Truths of Our Existence.

Yesterday, Dan visited Callie Carling’s ‘ CreaTEAvity Blog at where she asked him some questions about how we can tap into the power of our innocent nature and the antidote to shame. Today, I’d like to share with you a recent interview I had with Dan when I got to ask him some questions on how we can move on from guilt and become more connected.


KRYSTALYA: Many people are brought up in religions and families that really instill a sense of guilt for various things that we do as we grow and this guilt continues into adulthood. What would your advice be to someone living with a lot of guilt?

DAN:  The way to move on from any sort of guilt is to realize that whatever mistakes you may have made were unavoidable given what you knew at the time. If you are now feeling guilt over something you did or didn’t do in the past, consider the following:

Did you intend for things to turn out the way they did?

Would you have chosen differently if you knew then what you know now?

If your religious upbringing is now making you feel guilty or sinful, consider that the original and true meaning of the Hebrew word “sin” is “to miss the mark.” The original definition only implied that your actions were unwise and required correction. The idea that committing sins makes you a sinful, evil person was only invented later on by the Catholic Church. Our true nature is absolutely innocent, not guilty, and this is why all feelings of guilt are unjustified.

KRYSTALYA: Why is it so important for us to feel a sense of being connected and belonging? And, what do you recommend that we do to feel more connected?

DAN:  Us humans are highly social creatures, and as such, we all have a natural desire for connection and belonging. We want to feel that we are more than just isolated fragments. We want to be an integral part of something greater than ourselves and we long for deep and meaningful relationships. But unfortunately, that deep and meaningful sense of connection and belonging can be very hard to come by, and the reason is our lack of self-acceptance and self-love.

When we feel flawed or incomplete and are unable to embrace ourselves, we look to others to “complete” us and make us happy. When we approach relationships from such a needy and dependent position, our relationships tend to be shallow and conflicted. To find a more fulfilling sense of connection, we must first embrace ourselves. When you are happy and comfortable with yourself, you enter your relationships from a place of completeness rather than neediness and incompleteness. With your insecurities and self-doubts gone, all the possessiveness, jealousy, defensiveness and insincerity that ruins relationships also disappear, replaced with openness, transparency and real love and connection.

KRYSTALYA: What is the difference is between “Real Faith” and “Blind Faith”, and what do you recommend to help us learn to discern this difference.

DAN:  Blind, false faith is the unquestioning and irrational thought-control demanded by most religions and cults, and it does not lead to any real learning or understanding. Instead, this fear-based, closed-minded attitude prevents you from growing and destroys your natural curiosity and intuition.

Real faith is very different. It is the confident and optimistic trust in concepts that empower you and that open the doors to growth and possibility. It is saying, “I trust that life and the universe are good!” It is the relinquishment of pessimism and negativity, and the embracing of optimism and positivity. It is an attitude that says, “I give God and life the benefit of the doubt. I choose to believe that being alive is great, that the Truth of my existence and of who I really am is magnificent, and that I am entitled and capable of knowing that Truth!”
