Forgiveness isn’t always an option, especially when someone has been severely hurt. They say that time is a great healer, and sometimes time is the only way. It’s not about letting someone off the hook. Forgiveness is about freeing ourselves so that we can move forwards in our lives and not continue to suffer. When forgiveness is possible, it’s a conscious choice and it’s a gift to the self.
Learning to be present in our bodies is essential. Many highly sensitive beings have a tendency to disconnect from their body and their life since it feels way too dense and overwhelming. When we are disconnected from our bodies and life we cannot manifest our potential since we are not paying attention to what is going on inside of or around us. Being mindful of being fully present in the moment (without scattered thoughts and emotions that keep us disassociated) and coming fully into our body (rather than hovering just outside of it where it is nice and safe).
The energy of change is upon us. So much has occurred in recent times yet in many ways things look very much the same. It’s as if we are looking through the corner of our eyes where we can see what is to come as snapshots or glimpses into the future and from the past. Yet we are rooted here in this present moment of the NOW energy. We can no longer change the past nor predict the future. We can only be authentic in the moments we have.
Question: I am deeply distressed with my life as I approach my 50’s. I have always considered myself to be a compassionate, spiritual and aware person. I was kidnapped and raped at knife point at 23, widowed suddenly at 32 with 2 children, and recently divorced. There have also been many unfortunate deaths in my immediate family.
My children are usually making comparisons, from good to better or
bad to worse. I wonder what life in the world would be if comparisons
were not made. Perhaps one secret to life is to live without
comparisons. Without comparisons, perhaps you would be happier with
whatever life may bring you. You wouldn't be going back and forth and
The distance that creeps up between you now and the past that you
call time shows you how time and space are the same. Time creates
distance, and space occupies time, and so on. All is One, beloveds,
even in the temporal. There is differentiation, yet sameness. Time and
space don't exist anyway, even though you think so.
Regret and rue and remorse are all from the past, and this is why
you don't want them to stick around. They hold you to the past, and in
the past, beloveds, in terms of the relative world, you were less than
you are now. It's that simple. And so I adjure you to leap out of the
past and leave it behind forevermore.
