How do I forgive………..truly forgive?
Forgiveness is a path and a process. To truly forgive, one has to open themselves to all possibility and non-judgment. One cannot forgive while in judgment of another, or one’s self. Judgment stands between you and forgiveness. You are programmed to judge. When you judge someone you cut off all possibility for forgiveness. Judgment comes from the ego. Ego attachment is a powerful thing, and one cannot decompress the programming while the ego is running things. So, forgiveness is connected to all that you believe. The ego, as we have discussed before, doesn’t like peace. The ego thrives on crisis, chaos, and conflict. This keeps you distracted and keeps you from conscious awareness and love. Becoming aware of your thoughts is a first step to questioning yourself and your beliefs. When you have a judgmental thought ask where the thought comes from. How does the thought feel? Does this thought bring up other thoughts? Allow your thoughts to unfold back to their origination. Experience the feelings these thoughts generate. What do they feel like? At this point, you might have lost the original thought of judgment, and are into the place where the thought truly comes from. This is the place where healing begins.
Most of your beliefs are about yourself, as this is what you use for perception and comparison for judgmental thinking. This is a place of fear within your being. This is the seat of the ego. This is where all thoughts, feelings, judgments, and opinions come from. Why do you feel threatened? What is the basis of your fear? What if you didn’t believe what you are thinking? What if you believed the opposite, or just decided that this thought was not true for you at all? What would change? How would a new thought feel? Where did the original thought come from and who does it serve? Would there be utter chaos if you believed something different? How would that affect your life? At this point, notice how these questions, and the different thoughts they generate, feel within your heart. Your heart is the seat of your truth.
Thoughts are frequency. When you think certain thoughts, they generate a vibration that draws experience to you. The universe is interactive. You are the creator of your life. Whatever you think draws that experience to you, as you are creating by thinking. Your life emulates your thoughts. Your thoughts are generated by your beliefs. If you want to change your thoughts you must change your beliefs. Finding the answers about your beliefs lies within your programming. If your life is not working, it is because you believe something that is not true for you. This has nothing to do with religion or politics. It has to do with your inner relationship to your life, and those within it who have programmed you to believe what they thought was true for them. Most programming stems from lack. This sets up striving. Striving is unreachable. Striving makes you ignore the truth. Truth surfaces when you allow yourself to just be without believing anything your ego is telling you. You can distinguish the ego, as it comes in as thoughts that attack, judge, and create fear. These thoughts almost sound like a different person ‘selling’ you on its ‘product’, which is nothing more than its beliefs. It poses itself as defending you from an enemy. Do you see how this elaborate scheme is hooked into your being? You deserve the truth. The truth is that you are a loving and deserving being of light, and nothing but that truly matters. It doesn’t need to be complicated. If you were to stop enforcing someone else’s agenda, you could change your life. Most of what you believe is simply not true. If you were to change your beliefs, your thoughts would align with the truth, and forgiveness would flow. All would then be as it should be. When you allow yourself to find the truth it will set you free! ♥
