When Spiritual Bypassing Meets Racism Meets Gaslighting

“If spirituality is an important part of your life (as it is for me), and/or if you place a high value on positive thinking, and especially if you’re a Law of Attraction enthusiast, please read about spiritual bypassing beyond the paragraph definition.”

Indeed. I’ve often struggled with the bubblegum depth white spirituality presents me with. But since questioning light means attacking light, it’s impossible to go deeper. But we, as white folks, need to go deeper. Our daily practices inviting love and light may be unable to take us any deeper because they are already routed in oppression. When so much energy is taken to erase the experiences of people of colour, little is left to draw from for anyone (never mind if it’s authentic or not).
