According to magnanimous means generous in forgiving an insult or injury; free from petty resentfulness or vindictiveness; unspiteful; high-minded or noble.  Magnanimous people are always happier than those who hold grudges or harbor hatred. Love and hate are opposites, therefore love being light, hate is darkness. Love is Godlike and hatred is Godless. Magnanimous people are Godlike. Magnanimous is an expression of grace.

In the Twelve Step programs loss of resentment or hatred requires magnanimity. Unhappy people have put themselves above, ahead or apart from God. Whether we are apart from God through arrogance, narcissism or disdain the effects are the same. We are either in God’s light or we are in darkness. God is a jealous God in that we are either focused on God or the world. In Matthew 6:24, Jesus said, ” No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

We must all strive to be magnanimous. We must practice God’s grace, unconditional love. When we are striving to honor God we must love. ISIS can take my life but they cannot take away my love and honor for my Christian roots and my Gnostic heritage. We should stand strong toward our practice of God’s grace in whatever religious or spiritual denomination we choose, but stand strong we must. If you want to know where you will find your magnanimity remember…

Your Life is Perfect!

About Randolph Ek

My name is Dr. Randolph Ek, Mpsy.D. I started life as one of five children of an alcoholic father. The physical and mental abuse nearly destroyed my life. In fact my self-destructive behavior nearly landed me in prison. I eventually was guided to an alcohol/drug counselor and he directed me to a rehabilitation center. Since that time I have spent more than thirty years devoted to helping people find their ultimate potential. We can blame our negative, spiraling life on victimization but until we accept responsibility the power we need is beyond us. When we accept our part in our lives and surrender to a higher power, which I choose to call God, intervention is immediate. God allows us to realize our true power. We are all made in God’s Image and Likeness and have all the power of the universe at our disposal. We are not victims; we are volunteers and once we believe this truth our lives become limitless. God wants us all to have our heart’s desire and he will deliver whatever we continually think about good or bad. Unless I start my day off powerless and humble I cannot make the spiritual connection required to tap into God’s limitless power. God loves mankind and refuses to leave anyone behind. We can go willingly or we can be dragged to salvation. Pain is merely a symptom of spiritual separation mind, body and spirit. Realize, your individual limited resources, seek help, join others in their quest for spiritual understanding. Realize that all religions are right, yet they are also incomplete.
