Daily Inspiration: May 5. Taking the First Step Towards Forgiveness – Condensed Version

We may have been programmed to believe that taking the first step, being the first to forgive, is extremely hard and challenging. But isn’t its opposite, the weight of judgment that the ego has you carry, the constant thoughts that darken your days, the nights of tossing, turning, and losing sleep, aren’t they a much harder and heavier burden to bare? Sometimes we unconsciously choose the heavier burden, that of not to forgive, because of our own guilt. This guilt reinforces in us the idea that we are not worthy of, or able to make the choices that will lead us to peace. In essence, not forgiving another, becomes an unconscious way of punishing yourself, by withholding peace from yourself. Today, remind yourself that God being Love desires you and all His children to be and reflect peace.

Today, let us become the hero of our own journeys. No longer will we decide to wait for another to take that first step towards forgiveness, so that we can have peace. Today, it will be us who will take the first, second, and if need be, the third step towards forgiving, forgiveness, freedom and peace. Today, let us decide that our past will no longer haunt us. Tonight, having chosen forgiveness over judgment, and thus being happy over being right, we finally find true rest. No matter how chained to the mindset of judgment we have been programmed by the ego to be, today above all else, we choose the freedom that forgiveness offers. Understanding that we are all One, when we forgive another, we now free ourselves from having to carry the burden of judgment and in doing so return to the state of peace.  

All glory to God.

Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
