One of the steps we must take as we strive to live Peace, through Love, is "Forgiving From The Heart."
Sometimes it is hard to forgive. Ego makes it harder. The key to forgiveness or forgiving is to allow yourself to step from behind ego and away from thoughts about who or what you are forgiving. Forgiveness is not necessarily about someone else. It is about you. It is about loving yourself enough to give yourself a blessing. The blessing is the act of forgiving whoever or whatever hurt you.
By forgiving, you free your spirit. You free yourself. It is release from bondage that keeps each person tied to the hurt or pain of the past. By forgiving you are simply releasing yourself to live from the heart, from love. You open yourself to divine love energy which is followed by joy and true peace within.
Though you may never accept the hurtful actions, you have forgiven and moved on. You can forgive someone for their actions, but you don't have to welcome them back into your life. There maybe a reason some of the people from your past are not in your future.
Just remember, forgiveness is for you. Not anyone else. It doesn't matter if they know that you forgive them. It is for one person...you. Only you.
Peace through Love,
