Today is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it!
What better way to enjoy your day than beginning it with forgiveness. The driver that cuts you off and flips you the bird on your way to work is an opportunity in forgiveness. A Course In Miracles teaches that:
“The holiest of all the spots on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love”
That is what forgiveness will bring!
Life teaches great lessons and the longer you live, the more lessons you learn and hopefully those lessons come quickly and are less painful!
From someone who has learned many life lessons (most of them the hard way)… one begins to understand that it is the attachment to being right and making someone else wrong that creates the flow of negative energy and dis-ease in the body.
Unfortunately, when you carry the pain of your past forward towards and uncertain future the promise of what could be becomes distorted. You start spinning that someone done me wrong song and your future becomes the story you tell.
When you are able to find forgiveness you can change your story and acknowledge that through everything life has thrown at you, that You Are Still Here and you choose to see life differently. That’s what LOVE can do!
Finding forgiveness is about understanding and applying the forgiveness principles to your life. One principle is “Father forgive them for they no not what they do.” Jesus uttered those words on the cross to remind us that we can’t have true peace until we see things differently through the eyes of forgiveness.
Un-forgiveness is an energy or dark force that takes you out of your natural element of love and life, and when left unattended can literally cause dis-ease and sometimes even death. Negative energy is toxic and pollutes the very body you expect to do great things for you.
The truth of the matter is: Everything you think affects everything you Do! Your health, your wealth, your spiritual growth, as well as your physical well being.
You can say forgiving someone is hard, or you can see it as a process you can embrace and work through. Forgiveness is never about the other person (“them”), and always about YOU! As long as you are in the process of forgiving, you will continue processing.
Forgiveness is easy, maintaining it is hard. Forgiving is instant, forgetting is lingering. Forgiveness is the absolute release from the pain of your past and the fear of your future. Forgiveness moves you back into the bosom of GOD where only love resides. Find forgiveness return to love, find GOD! Want Forgiveness ask GOD!
Remember this! YOU are holding yourself back, YOU are receiving what you have been giving, and yes YOU must learn the power of forgiveness by first learning to forgive yourself!
