"Well it's alright riding around in the breeze, and it's alright if you live the life you please."
"Well it's alright, remember to live and let live, and it's alright the best you can do is forgive."
Those words from a song by The Traveling Wilburys contain so much wisdom. In this world of so much violence and mayhem, we sure need for everyone to realize that it is time to stop fighting and to once and for all forgive others of past deeds and just start over. Can you imagine how this world would be if everyone just stopped and took time to truly forgive everyone who has hurt them in any way? If that was to happen we could then start building a world where we all treated others in a much nicer and kinder way. Do I think this is ever going to happen? Probably not in my lifetime but as long as I am here I will just keep on dreaming of that day and try and do my best to forgive everyone who has caused me pain either real or imagined. The funny thing about forgiveness---it helps us much more than the one we are forgiving. That Divine law of Karma always comes full circle in due time. So as we forgive we then are forgiven. Here's hoping that right now you will take a moment and see if you are still holding on to any unforgiveness toward others. And if you are just forgive, let it all be washed away and see how much lighter and freer you then feel. May this new week ahead be one that is filled with love, peace, and joy for you and yours. The best you can do is forgive. Before signing off I would like to share with you a couple of quotes. The first comes from the Science of Mind textbook where it states: A man(woman) may have many shortcomings, but if he loves greatly, much will be forgiven him. And finally from the writer Hafiz comes this statement--Your wounds of love can only heal when you can forgive this dream. Peace and love to all.
