I do my Spiritual work on a daily basis! I wake up really early in the morning and I read my Spiritual books, I do my prayers, and I meditate while I shower. As I get dress, I am listening to either Joel Osteen, Troy Gramling, Joyce Mayer, or Bishop TD Jakes. By the time I am dressed and ready to go out the door, I am ready for the world! I am ready to Bless everyone and Greet the CHRIST in them, but then, others’ imperfection, their wounded spirits, their beliefs different than my on or my own imperfection get in my way. This is the time that I MUST use FORGIVENESS!
Forgiveness means seeing in FAITH a LOVE that is GREATER than the actual experiences, or the past experiences. I MUST be willing to see beyond someone’s dark personality to their Soul where their GOD Self resides. To FORGIVE does not mean that I do not acknowledge that other people’s behavior has caused me or someone else discomfort, I simply choose not to focus on the action. Focusing on the action will make it real to me and that makes it real for me.
The ONLY way to protect myself from being vulnerable to other’s behavior is to identify with the person’s Higher Power – Their GOD Within. I can choose to look beyond other’s behavior and concentrate on their GOD Self. By using this strategy I FREE the individual from my condemnation, but I also FREE myself as well. This is the meaning of Forgiveness!
