A spiritual bypass is when you focus on only the internal work to the exclusion of an external problem that needs to be addressed. Here’s what it looks like.

The Law of Three starts with fixation.
The second point is the negation.
The third transcends both,

But what if it’s minimization?

  • patriarchy
  • anger vs. hate
  • reconcile vs. wishy-washy
  • spiritual bypass
  • everyone means well… but for whom?
  • victim-blaming
  • “remember your compassion”
  • Why I hate compassion
  • why the founder of The Home Depot voted for Trump (an example of bridging)
