The amount of time between anger and forgiveness is not only measured by time, but also by 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. To experience true peace, practice making the conscious decision to value forgiveness over judgment and thus peace over pain. When you eventually 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, recall that you have free will. So the amount of time you spend angry and in emotional pain is up to you and you alone. Everything you experience “out there” must begin as a thought within your mind. If it begins within your mind, then you are the one who must take personal responsibility for how you are defining and reacting to your 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 all forever worthy of peace. Today, let us use every interaction to practice forgiveness and thus achieve the state of peace. The more we do, the more we will realize that forgiveness and the state of peace are much more aligned with the truth in us than the ego’s programs of judgment, anger and pain.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
