Thought for Today 22.11.2011
by Wilhemina de Boer - Forgiveness means that you don't hold others responsible for your experiences, so they are not to blame. The only one going through your experiences is you and therefore there is only one to forgive and that is yourself.
Understand that forgiveness is a energy dynamic in which you control your power. When you depend on others to make you happy, you give your power to them, making them more powerful and important than yourself.
Anger and frustration comes in when they don't deliver your expectations. Realize that it is all your own creation of giving away that power you possess, the only one to blame is yourself. Start today forgiving yourself for all the times you gave your control away, and keep observing yourself while you go through your day how many times you make others more important than yourself. Be kind to yourself, forgive yourself and by doing so you create freedom, recognizing your own inner power.
Forgiveness is a daily activity, minute by minute realizing how you deal with your own control.
Forgiveness is the greatest act to self, admitting your power and taking responsibility for what happens in your life.
Love and Light,
