When a painful memory continues to intrude into your days and nights, what you are being offered, is the opportunity to experience the peace, that forgiveness has to offer. Forgiveness is not about others deserving or not deserving something, it’s about you being worthy of peace, and that is why you forgive. When you choose to forgive yourself or another, you free yourself from having to carry, day and night, judgment’s heavy burdens. If you think of another, and judgmental angry thoughts come up, and you continue to support such thoughts with your time, focus and energy, then it is you, that you are hurting. If you make the conscious choice to forgive him, or ask God to forgive him for you until you can do it for yourself, it is then you that you begin to feel the freedom that forgiveness has to offer.
Today, let us realize, that it is only as long as we support our judgments of self and others, that we will carry our painful memories. Today, if you desire to let go of those painful memories, then you must be willing to no longer to move in their direction. When you place your time, focus and energy, on your painful memories, you move in their direction. When instead you place your time, focus and energy, on forgiveness and on trusting God’s plan, you move away from their direction. In the end, it is you and you alone, who can through free will, move yourself towards or away from your pain and suffering. Today, if you desire to leave and let go of your painful memories, then each and every time they pop up at your mind’s door, tell them that they are now forgiven, and that you will no longer entertain them.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
