The Freedom Gift of Forgiveness
We are all seeking Freedom in some form or another.
One special form of Freedom is through the gift of Forgiveness.
Have you noticed that in giving the great gift of Forgiveness it offers Freedom on various levels.
1. Forgiveness firstly frees our own mind from the psychological poison and prison of anger, resentment and self- centered concern.
2. Forgiveness frees the perpetrator from our directed anger, resentment and disconnection.
3. Forgiveness frees the troubled relationship from distress and fear, allowing understanding, compassion, healing and resolution.
4. Forgiveness is a gift from the Mind-Heart of real love and wisdom, and becomes a gift to our humanity and our planet, creating freedom from possible reacting and acting out that can have ongoing, long going and far reaching consequences.
May we this week, with the occasion of Valentines Day offer real love through the Freedom Gift of Forgiveness?
Even old wounds can find fresh healing through this possibility. We might even find that much of the forgiveness that needs to be offered is to the person wearing ‘our shoes’; our self, our being, since this is the one that we are spending the rest of our life with.
