As I forgive, I connect in oneness with the Divine.
Forgiveness may sometimes seem daunting, but it is essential to my spiritual progress. If I hold resentment, blame or unforgiveness in my heart, I feel separated from the Divine. But when I am willing to forgive and let go of anger and guilt, I feel the love of God supporting me in every way. When I forgive, I am not granting anyone permission to harm me or someone else. I am releasing the energy I have carried about mistakes I and others have made. The past is the past, and I free myself to move forward with compassion, love and kindness toward myself and others. As I forgive, I change my thoughts, words and actions, re-experiencing my oneness with the Divine.
Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.—Matthew 6:12
