In my previous posts I wrote about
Forgiving yourself Divine Forgiveness Today I will be focusing on Forgiving others This quotes says in order to have peace we need to forgive others Whether they deserve it or not…
Forgiving them does not condone what they said or did
Forgiveness prevents their words or behaviors From destroying your heart…
Forgive others for “peace”
What is this peace they are talking about?
This quote clarifies what peace is
It says we are to Forgive to relieve pain and suffering Apparently forgiveness relieves your suffering
We have pain from the past
memories Forgiveness is Taking control of the past thoughts and memories That are triggers and That torture our minds and spirits
Those who trigger us are messengers
To help bring forth negative emotions To be healed None of us want to feel pain and suffering… This is a “no-brainer” Then we need to take action
Hidden underneath any level of
Hurt and suffering Are Unforgiving thoughts We should all be “chomping at the bit” to forgive…
One blockage to forgiveness can be a mindset to
“teach the other person a lesson” or “Punish the other person”
This is not our job
to punish or correct another person We are to correct ourselves We are to encourage others We are to listen to others
Share words of support and encouragement
“You will get your answer” Help the person to find their own answers If you direct someone else’s path You are held accountable for their mistakes Allow everyone the dignity of choosing their words and path And allow them to fall down and get back up again Agree to disagree
Thus one could say that unforgiveness is a
Form of self harm Wow, looking at forgiveness from this self harm Perspective sheds a new light on forgiveness I don’t want to cause harm and pain to myself I am choosing to be aware of and accept this self destruction behavior… and practice forgiveness for myself
Torn piece of paper with the word “Forgive” in the woman’s palms.
I was harming myself by choosing unforgiveness As my response to their negative action or deeds This quote tells me that if I am waiting for an apology Or waiting for an admittance of wrong from the other person- I am giving that person Control over my emotions. I don’t want to do that!!! Holding on to the anger puts me in the victim role… No way Don’t want to revisit the victim role…
Storing the anger inside my mind, body and spirit
Is like acid eating away at me… Results of clinging to anger
How insane is that!
It doesn’t make logical sense to do this… I need to practice The mindset of letting anger roll off my back until it become a normal habitual response
When I keep my acceptance mindset working
My emotions stay calm And do not take charge Here comes this acceptance word and concept again
Accept others for who they are and what they did
Realize you cannot change them They have a right to their opinion I choose my response…
Accept what is
Let Go what was Believe in what will be…
This informs me that if I am not accepting something or someone
I am rejecting that someone or something… I just realized that all the rejection for which I suffered was because I did not accept I always thought rejection was something other people did to me… Rejected me… It was not them it was me
I need acceptance to change
Easier to see the mistakes in others
than see our own mistakes
Accept people for who they are
You cannot change others Don’t try You only have control over your attitude about them or the situation…
Rejection can be a catalyst to change ourselves
or Justify who we are
Rejection can be a good thing…
It can re-direct a person to something better… Learn from your rejections
Rejection and failure can be a catalyst to learn our life lessons
Accept rejection and failure as a learning opportunity! Be grateful for the rejection lessons you are given Do not let them go to waste.. Learn the lesson Or you will get a repeat and another opportunity To experience rejection
Never let other’s rejection affect
your self worth If you accept their rejection as a learning experience then it will not affect your self worth I guess this is what people meant when they say “Don’t take it personal”
If I allow others to say and think and do
what they choose and don’t take it personally I avoid suffering… and keep from going into the victim role Sounds good to me
It takes courage to hear and accept constructive criticism
The challenge is that most of our critics Need a lesson in diplomacy
Only take advice from people you trust
I enjoyed this spiritual path today I hope the Spirit of God gave you some insights on the importance of forgiving others. My Spiritual Lessons from this spiritual walk on forgiving others
I am more willing to forgive others
to avoid pain and misery… When I don’t forgive others I am hurting myself My mind, body and spirit I do not need to punish them in order to forgive them… I do not need them to admit their wrongs In order to forgive them I need to forgive them whether they deserve it or not I do not need to have a relationship with them After I forgive them I choose a select few to accept advice and constructive criticism I can accept hurtful words and energy from others Which results in pain Or I can practice rejecting those hurtful words and actions By immediately accepting them for who they are And rejecting their negativity from entering my spirit Divine Forgiveness is a gift from God God forgives me Who am I to not forgive others… Forgiveness is a gift I give to myself Rewards of forgiveness are Peace and love Instead of bitterness and hatred and resentment I choose forgiveness My Spirit is set free
Choose Acceptance Choose Forgiveness Rewards No suffering Peace Love Happiness Lots of Love Esther Mae 3-30-2023
