The unforgiving mind is asleep to its true nature. Having been programmed by the ego to see the false as true, the unforgiving mind feels lost, wounded, broken and burdened by the weight of its own judgments. Unconsciously valuing chaos more than peace, it wallows, stewing in the turmoil of its fictional world. Sad and without hope, it perilously peers into the deep darkness just waiting to be attacked. Confused, angry and afraid, it believes its two choices are to either strike or be victimized. Never dropping judgment’s sword, its body tires, feels stressed and weakens. Yet, no matter how the unforgiving mind acts, what it secretly desires most is to find rest. Its true desire is to put down the sword and finally experience the peace that, deep down inside, it knows it deserves. This is why today you have been placed on its path. You are where you are, to offer hope to the hopeless, rest to the weary, and peace to those who know only of the pain of the sword. You have been placed on the path of the unforgiving mind to help it see that there is indeed another way, a better way, a way that can lead it from sleep to awakening and from judgment to joy. You are here to show it that there is indeed a way from confusion to clarity, chaos to calm, and from pain to ever lasting peace. Today, when an unforgiving mind crosses your pass, promise yourself not to join it by judging those that judge you. Today, choose to see only the loving eternal nature in your brother and sister. Be a light within the darkness, a spring in a deserted world that has been dried out by its beliefs in isolation, separation, anger, resentment, revenge and regret. Today, bring peace and understanding to those who have been led astray by the ego’s lies. Today, when the unforgiving mind confronts you, simply and gently smile. Smile, because you understand that God would not have placed you where you are unless He knew that you would show compassion, forgiveness and love to His lost child.
We have all walked the path of the unforgiving mind. We have all fought within the emotionally blood thirsty battles of the ego’s judgment-filled wars. We have all been wounded time after time because we had put our faith in a fictional tale that has never had our best interest in mind. We all carry within us the memory of carnage, left behind by those trained to see the dark and false as real and true. All the unforgiving mind does is strike at the shadows in its dreams and then in fear wonders why they don’t die off and disappear. The unforgiving mind does not know that it resides within the dream state, blindfolded to its loving nature and light. The ego’s judgment centered monsters will always appear to be real within the dream of the unforgiving mind. Today, choose to no longer defend yourself or fight against the shadows in your dreams. Spend no more of your time, focus and energy, on the shadows in your dreams and watch them begin to dissolve as you awaken. How much longer will we allow the unforgiving mind, the unenlightened mind, to try to lead us through the darkness? How many more of its battles must we fight in order to finally feel safe, secure and at peace? How many more wounded victims must it leave behind on its war path before we finally cry out for mercy, help, healing, freedom and peace? Are you not tired of the constant battles? How much longer will you support the unforgiving mind’s soldiers of anger, resentment, hate, revenge and regret? How much more of its suffering, pain, confusion, darkness and chaos, will you continue to allow into your life and into the lives of those around you? When will enough finally be enough?
Today, let us return to the light, accept the path of peace, and thus bring clarity and healing to the unforgiving mind. To do so, consciously choose to lay down your sword of judgment and enter the battlefield with your arms wide open and your head held high. You enter the battlefield with the certainty that only the love of God in all of us is real. You enter the field knowing that the ego’s illusions are not real, its nightmares are but dreams, and its darkness is but a lack of light. You understand that your eternal essence can never be struck down by the ego’s fictional sword of judgment. Your eternal essence is an expression and extension of the Love that God is, and the Love of God is All. The opposite of All is nothing. Thus nothing, no matter how many ways the unforgiving mind tries to disguise it, can’t never hurt, confuse or darken, the love that is your eternal essence and nature. With this understanding and mindset, you are raised above and beyond the ego’s battlefield. Above the battlefield, you will look upon all those still buying into their fear based dreams as real. Above the battlefield, you will no longer have the need to judge those that are unaware and asleep to their true nature. Just as you watch and admire the beauty of your child while he or she sleeps, so to will you view all your brothers and sisters in this same perfect light. As they dream they will toss and turn, defend and fight, unaware of their true nature. Feeling lost, confused and afraid while they dream, now gently and lovingly place your hand upon their head, caress their scalp, move your fingers through their hair, and softly whisper to them that time to awaken has come.
Today, let us help the unforgiving mind awaken from its judgment and fear based dreams. Think of a person or situation that you have yet to forgive. Then ask yourself, that part of you that is awake, does it want to be right or happy, to remain in pain or experience peace? Do you desire to enjoy the light of a brand new day or to remain imprison within its past programs? Do you want to be free from your judgments, or continue to toss and turn at night? Has the unforgiving mind not made you suffer long enough? When will you decide that enough is enough? How many more internal battles must you fight in order to realize the unforgiving mind has nothing of value to offer? Forgive, and awaken from your nightmares. Forgive, and finally experience true rest and lasting peace.

This appeared again today in my inbox in perfect timing since I am again dealing with the judgments of two of my three daughters after sending one a birthday greeting yesterday. I guess that triggered them both back into their cycle of judgment. I never respond to them, because they can’t hear me. So I send blessings of Love and Light daily, knowing they are fighting their own internal battles, not me, even though I am the target.
Thank you Elaine for being open to the message and for being a member of our community.
Only the love in us is real and true, everything else is simply an unconscious appeal for help and healing. Help heal them by seeing only what is true about them as true.
Help bring peace to your own mind by consciously aligning with and offering only the truth in you to all those who come your way.
We are all One, think about what you would like to experience, and then offer that to all others. Do so, and what you have offered to all others will continuously flow through you and through out your day.
This is my first in depth reading of your articles…and I’m rewarded…
I am by the Blessings of Our Heavenly Father and wonderful heritage, given to understand the meaning of forgiveness…and it’s importance!
To hang on to anger and bitterness…makes severe health issues…so it’s a blessing to have the understanding of forgiveness…
So here is the quandary…I have a Sister…that has been so verbally cruel…to put it simply, and extremely mildly……she has gone thru 4 husbands..5 live-ins…lost her daughter .who is as evil as her mother….and 2 grandchildren..she has no friends….
…lays on a saccharine.. behavior…that is then discovered, then she is ignored..or despised….and she is just tolerated..if that is the only way to be diplomatic..
I went thru years..of her unspeakable verbal cruelty..with both of my husbands..(one deceased)..
…..she has been verbally cruel to my Mother who passed..and my grandmothers….
After she did her most vulgar act at my mothers funeral..2 funeral homes…were appalled at her greed..and cruelty…so ….
sooooo it’s not just me…..
I finally , out of despair..and wondering…because I’d heard these words..but, what would the computer ever bring up?…in 2009…
I just entered 2 words into the computer…those being ‘jealous siblings’..as my employees said she was,…
..I couldn’t comprehend that word…silly as it sounds..as I’ve worked for everything in my life as has my husbands…we had no special financial freebies…
….as I researched..I went into shock….I could not believe how many others in families..had this same situation….and, the actual education went on…by volumes of experiences..and hateful behavior…I can’t believe people still went to family holidays only to get into screaming matches…which we never did as Christians…The Bible says to be of Meek and Mild temperament…so we just sat stone silent…and… did the day and thanked God we could go home 400 miles away!
I made my decision…thru prayer and education…that I needed to ‘dust off my feet’ ..lighten my heart and life from this toxic…influence for 60 years of my life….at that time…
…and the peace is divine….not to deal with the connivance’s…lies to others…and by education of my Electrician.,( I’m a General Contractor)…I learned I could use the word EVIL.
.Oh my God….Judge not lest we be judged!….
I have forgiven her…
NO….I can not forgive, her, what she has done to others…or my Mother for years and, in her dying bedside days….or my Grandmothers…that is for Our Heavenly Father to do…that’s not my territory…
The bottom line to all this…is that..forgiveness..is paramount ..and takes time..depending to the severity…one can not go ‘willy -nilly’ and just forgive with out..understanding and healing for their own souls..
…..otherwise words are cheap…but a real peace and understanding of forgiveness needs to be attained…then forgiveness is attained..
…..can I understand the ‘why’s’ around my sister’ behavior? no and I don’t care!
I forgive her….she is forbidden to ever come to my home or funeral..
.I’ll not have the’ phony’ performance, of grieving nonscence..!.
.and then, public verbal, ridicule to all..even at the casket..out loud as she has done to all!
…..she wouldn’t even attend the second service for my mother..as there was a service..for my Mother to be interned next to my father in a cemetery in another nearby town..
She said she wouldn’t come to our ‘Dog and Pony Show”..so she attended no funeral..and… was glad mother was dead..(actually said) …..the nuisance was over..as she has said about all those who have passed..in the family..and friends..
She was on the verge of being arrested..for adult verbal abuse..that is now an issue in some state counties..not just physical….then,… Mother Passed…
I value your opinion on this….as forgiveness isn’t a plastic word..so people keep subjecting themselves to emotional, scarring, injury..as our relatives have done…
Yes…I have forgiven..I’ll never allow this to be done to anyone…that I care about.., and not me..
.I don’t wallow in it..my files are full and …put away.
.I saw this..and I believe there has to be a practical application to forgiveness…
……the silence..and walking around the’ elephant in the room’….is over…now that I understand TOXIC personalities….and their damage done…
Thank you for your patience in reading this….
Your opinions..I do value..on this…
Thank you Patricia for sharing your story and for being open to the message.
God is Love and All, and so, each and every time that your sister comes into your mind, that is God asking you to pray for her.
You have been given by God free will, and so God can ask you to pray for your sister, but He can’t force you to do this.
Pray for your sister, and you will, because in truth we are all One, and One with God, open yourself up to more of God’s All-Encompassing Love and Mercy. God’s All-Encompassing Love and Mercy, is yours to experience, enjoy and share, but you must be willing, through free will, to offer it to all those parts of God’s creations, that your ego has taught you to believe, are not worthy of God’s Love and Mercy.
Now you know, that every single time the thought of your sister pops up in your head, that you have a choice, consciously join God’s Love and Mercy, and sit for a few minutes in silence, asking God’s angels to surround you, and asking them to join you in praying for your sister’s health, healing, joy, peace of mind and awakening, do so and you will feel God’s Gratitude within you, embracing you, thanking you for asking to heal and bring back into the light, one of God’s lost children.
Do not fear nor despair, for God, when you unite with the energies of forgiveness, healing, joy and peace, all expressions of Love, all expressions of Him, they will join, embrace, protect and heal you throughout your days and nights.
God speaks to All of us, All the time, but yet, so few choose to listen.
Today, and from now on, look deep into the mirror, and tell yourself that from now on, you will answer God’s call. Pray for those that need prayer, ask for healing for those that need to be healed, send your love to those that feel that they are not loved, pray for hope for those that are feeling hopeless, pray for gentleness, love and light to surround and embrace all those that currently are imprison in darkness and despair, ask God to forgive all those that need to be forgiven, ask all of God’s and your angels, guides, guardian angels, arc angels to break through with their loving light into that lost child’s soul.
Your sister is just one of the many lost children of God, but in this instance God has entrusted you specifically with her care, with His lost child. You need not physically come into her presence, but you should consider answering God’s call for Mercy. And so when your sister now enters your mind, know what is truly happening, that she is unconsciously calling out for you to pray for her, to guide her back into her Father’s arms. God trust you to do this, or else you would not be reading this now.
Do not underestimate your power, as God child, to help bring light into the darkness, for all that you in truth are, is God’s Love and Light.
Answer your sister’s call for help and healing, with help and healing.
Help bring, through your prayers and kind, forgiving and loving thoughts, your sister back into the light. Even if at all possible, each and every day, try to invite your friends or family members to join you in a few minutes of prayer for your sister, it can be when you are on the phone with another, or before dinner at the dinner table, or at church.
Do not despair, do not stop asking God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit each day and night for their help in breaking through your sister’s darkness and helping her recall her true light.
Remember, we are all One, and so if you choose not to forgive your sister any time she pops up in your mind, then you are not only withholding forgiveness and peace from her, but also you are withholding this forgiveness and peace from yourself, and believe it or not, you are withholding this forgiveness and peace from God. You will never experience true peace if you are, unconscious as it may be, withholding forgiveness and peace from God.
God Loves All His children, and especially He Loves His lost sheep. God has entrusted you as your sister’s shepherd. Remember this, and even if it is only through your thoughts and prayers, help bring Your Shepherd’s lost sheep back home.
I’m so sorry to be a “downer” and not be positive as I normally try to be..but I can’t seem to let go of resentment toward a staff member of where I live. She has held a grudge against me since I filed a grievance against her in 2012. Since then..no matter how hard I try to make amends my being nice..she passed me in the hall..won’t look at me, she lashed out at me in her groups in front of other residents, her office is right by my apartment..so she makes it a point to open her door anytime someone knocks on my door..and she will just stare and listen to our conversations. I ask God for help..in helping me let go..of my resentment toward her. I’m so tired of her hateful attitude and her derogatory comments toward me in front of other people..but I don’t think God is listening…as I still feel lousy, and angry..and I just don’t like her and wish she would just quit..God forgive me for saying this.
Thank you Tammi for your comment.
Practice doing the opposite of everything that is not working for you.
When the thought of resentment comes in, practice stopping it quicker and quicker each time, and substitute it for a prayer of peace. Fill every cell of your body with a prayer and thoughts of peace, pray for the person the ego demands you judge, pray for their health, happiness, peace, and healing, remember we are all One, and so what you offer others you will experience within yourself.
Always practice what you yourself desire to experience.
Always be sure to offer gratitude to all those who help you practice being more forgiving, loving, peaceful and joyful.
I choose to follow the path of forgiveness and light of self and others and am finally at peace I in u my God and you in me there can only be love laughter health and in my life now and l send this love laughter health and happiness in abundance to al my children grandchildren friends family and each person God crosses my path with in my life may u al feel the peace l feel now and always.
Thank you Geraldine for your comment and for being a member of our community.
When your thoughts are aligned with forgiveness, peace and Love, this is a symbol that your mind is One with the Mind of God.
You are here to represent God, Love here on Earth. Thus, when you are being the love that you were created to be you will feel fulfilled, because in essence you are doing what you came here to do.
