Welcome to threads of enlightenment. Forgiving others. Forgiveness is one of the principles of personal growth; thank you so much for joining me to continue our conversation about the process of personal growth and to learn how to become the masters of ourselves.
In the last blog, I spoke about Unchecked emotions. I use that title for a chapter because we tend to not truly be aware of what emotions are in the sense of how they cause us to be controlled by what I call states. States are where we make decisions that cause much harm and pain. Unchecked emotions will lead us to enter into a state of hatefulness. And it has caused us to become stuck in states that are harmful to our spirit, soul, and bodies.
I want to focus a little on forgiving, forgiveness, or forgiving others. In chapter four in my book, “Threads of Enlightenment,” I discuss this in debt. I look at it more like a manual for you to take a look at and identify where you’re located, what state you currently live, in what state you’re in mentally, spiritually, and physically reside at the moment to decide to move forward. Hopefully, it can guide you to the places you need to go to become a mature human spirit.
We must learn these principles because each one of these takes us to another level of our development. “Learn to let go; It is the beginning of your beginnings.” It is entirely our responsibility to desire our deliverance from pain, and the same old same old we have to take responsibility after someone has committed erroneous actions against us. We have to come to a place where we take responsibility for our lives to put it back to, to now recreate something new, something stronger, something wiser, something not as weak and defeated.
The principle of forgiving others takes away the power that they have over us for so long. I suggest that if you have kids, you need to grab that book because it has some wonderful nuggets in there for us. He talks about how forgiveness is essential for growth and healing, and that is why we need to forgive. Forgiveness is essential for our growth and healing; we have to take back our authority, power from those that stripped it away from us through whatever hateful behavior, whatever they’ve done to us.
Many of you have gone through horrific situations in your life. I know my rejection came from family, from my parents. And so, I had to learn how to push through that. I’d mentioned briefly that, as a young adult in college. The memory of that pain will come, and I would cry as, as a young man, I would find a place to hide and to go through that emotional pain and to begin to figure out a way how to manage it. We must remember and realized that it is our responsibility to what is necessary to change. “Change is not changing until you’ve changed,”
