Certainly the world would be cured of all its ills if we, as a human race, developed and practiced a constant attitude of Forgiveness.
And what a wonderful world it would be. Mostly we could sit back and relax… trusting ourselves and others to take responsibility for their projections and when things go phooey at work or at home there would be a sense that each side of an argument or misunderstanding would quickly go through a forgiveness process that would result in a resolution that looks and feels like love. Well-being would be easily restored.
In the interim, as we are in the process of solidifying forgiveness as a dedicated way of life, we have forgiveness as a gigantic safety net…waiting patiently for us to fall into its loving arms when we are struggling with some judgment that is disturbing our peace. If we dive into the safety net of forgiveness, not only does it support us by guiding us back to ourselves and back to love, but the impact causes us to bounce back just a little higher than before. Our vibration rises. Most likely it will be easier next time and even easier the time after. Soon, the occasional falling into forgiveness by default, perhaps after all else failed, becomes more of a habit than a conscious practice and soon, a way of life. Now the strength of forgiveness is no longer outside of us and we can remove the net as the process has become internalized. Forgiveness is what we do. Forgiveness is who we are.
So, over time, we remove the training wheels and take off with confidence that we have embodied a way of life that is steeped in an understanding of Universal Law that allows us to Forgive and Love, Love and Forgive until all there is, is Love!
