Forgive Before It’s Too Late

Why wait to forgive ourselves and our loved ones? Life can be fragile and fickle. It can pass in a brief moment. Our minds become lost, our bodies worn, our hearts ache, and our souls fractured. If there is someone to forgive, can you release that burden here and now before it’s too late?

To be open and vulnerable, one of my greatest fears is growing to be incapacitated in mind and body. To not let go and make peace with what I must because I was too scared, stubborn, angry, unwilling, (fill in the blank) when I could have.

There is great freedom and equal evolutionary growth — a spiritual ascension of you like that comes from relieving ourselves from the pain of holding the gate, resentment, and regret.

We become obsessed and vigilant. Angry and distracted. We are kept in low vibratory states of expression and we lose ourselves in those moments.

This compounds and we become bitter. Further identifying with hatred and rage. Not trusting others and worse, feeling deep shame and mistrust for ourselves.

Forgiveness is an inside job. Something we do for ourselves and for others. But the process and hero’s journey of forgiveness is within us. Our relationship to our own core is primary.

Can you forgive yourself for cheating in your last relationship?

Can you forgive yourself for getting frustrated with your son?

Can you forgive your father for not knowing how to say I love you?

Can you forgive your partner for lying to you?

Can you forgive your perpetrator for the abuse?

What can you forgive here and now?

I forgive myself for still holding on to needing to get it right and when I don’t project that as inadequate frustration upon myself and others.

One is glad to be of service.
