A few words on forgiveness
Forgiveness is a very interesting subject. My take is to free up as much of our life energy as possible to access our creativity and harness it in service of good. When we're 'bound' by what's going on 'out there' it's almost impossible to bring in something new. By withholding forgiveness, we're essentially punishing ourselves for expecting others to know better, even though they have no access to their loving, creative capacities. It is difficult for people to behave in loving, life giving ways if their focus is fear based and centered on survival and accumulation of resources (trying to protect themselves from the "unknown"...the question being, how do I "get" more so I'll be more safe and secure?!). One of the topics at an open mic night that I read at was forgiveness and this is what I came up with:
Releasing ourselves from the pain of holding on to high expectations and judgment based on part of the picture. 'They' did the best that they could with the skills and abilities they had at the time. 'We' did the best that we could with the skills and abilities that we had at the time. Do we desire to have new life? Do we desire to have a fuller, more joyful experience? This requires forgiveness. Not necessarily knowing how but being willing to do it. In this willingness, openness, and humility, Grace can show up and free us from the burdens of maintaining our filters. Instead of experiencing life through a looking glass, disconnected and detached, we can feel it directly. We can let the beautiful light of truth dissolve the tension caused by the perception of unmet needs. We can let life nurture us. There is a presence that is available to us now, when we are willing to release past error. Unhooked, released, and free, we can forgive ourselves for expecting and thus accepting a limited existence. Laughter breaks the spell, bridging the gap between not good enough and perfect. Welcome back.
