Ego-Self, Godself & Forgiveness
Chapter 7: Freedom Through Forgiveness
An Excerpt from You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey of Self-Awareness, Peace of Mind and Joy by James Blanchard Cisneros.
Forgiveness is not a natural reaction for the ego-self. If the ego-self even considers forgiveness, it might do so saying that your brother deserves forgiveness because he was simply in an immature or insane state at the moment when the “infraction” or “error” occurred. The ego’s sense of forgiveness is to look upon your brother as insane or immature. By saying this, the ego is implying that the infraction or error is real; that there is something to forgive; and that somehow you are more or better than your brother – that you’re the “bigger person” because you can forgive. It is also saying that your brother is capable of insane or immature behavior, thus making insanity, immaturity and their consequences real. Even in forgiveness, the ego’s secret and silent goal is separation.
