The stretch of time between anger and forgiveness is not only measured in time, but also in pain. Pain is not God’s will for you, peace is. You, as Love’s creation, are worthy of peace, not pain. But first you must acknowledge this to yourself and truly believe it, in order to fully experience it. In order to experience true peace, practice making the conscious decision to value forgiveness over judgment and thus peace over pain. When you finally decide that you desire peace more than pain, it is then that you will forgive. You have been gifted free will, no one other than you can decide when you will choose to forgive, and thus when you will achieve the state of peace. You will always experience the amount of pain that you deem necessary, in order to convince you, to start looking for a better way.
Today, let us recall that we have free will, and so the time that we spend angry and in pain, is up to us and us alone. Everything that we seem to experience “out there” must begin as a thought within our minds. If it begins within our minds, then it must be we who take personal responsibility for how we are defining and reacting to our experience. When you do not forgive, what you are really saying is: “I am not yet worthy of peace.” When you forgive, what you are saying is: “I am now worthy of peace.” As God’s creations, we are forever worthy of peace. Today, let us use every interaction to practice forgiveness and thus achieve the state of peace. The more we do so, the more we realize that forgiveness and the state of peace are much more aligned with the truth in us than the ego programs of judgment, anger and pain.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
