Accepting Apologies Without Forgiveness

5 years ago

Dear All:

As the late summer gets its "sunset" on, I am surprised how we accept apologies, but without forgiveness. It is such a nutty ego thing! If we are without forgiveness, and we can not let go, what does it say about us? Do we like to be in a state of continual resentment? Is that how we get our rocks off?

If I am open to forgiving everybody for everything (in particular wrong doings towards me), 1) I am letting go  2) I am free of my ego (yahoo) 3) I am genuine 4) I am focused on loving others 5) I am losing my self importance (oh god, that again) 6) I have transcended to a higher level 7) I am not attaching to others unfavorable actions 8) I am focused on myself) 9) I am eliminating my own noise and 10) I am not being passive aggressive. A forgiving path is a bright path, that way we are "for real", right?

  1. Forgiveness set me free today!
  2. How did forgiveness save you from yourself today?
If we can celebrate to the golden flowers today, while examining the destructive ways of our infantile ego, then nothing can go that wrong right? 
Let's pray for the soldiers, children and animals who need our determined and fierce protection at all times.
