Forgiveness Timing

Curious

How much time elapses for most people between the time they know they should forgive someone and the time they actually do?

Is it easier to forgive yourself or is it easier to forgive others?

Does forgiving yourself too quickly negate the forgiveness?

Your thoughts?

Did you ever think that you cannot forgive another, but only yourself? No one can do anything to you that you have not somehow allowed them to do. What power does a name that you are called have, other than the power you give it? You can only forgive yourself for the thoughts you hold in your mind which are not thoughts of love.

Did you ever think of the process of forgiveness as just being another thought? That's how quickly we can forgive ourselves. Instead of seeing the other person with anger, we can see them with love.

And as for how much time elapses - how soon do you realize that you have harboring a thought which is not of love about another? And did you ever think that as you think of another, you think of yourself - they are but a reflection of you.

Namaste - Ron

So, bottom line... forgiveness is really about returning to love for self and seeing love in others...or as a reflection from the love that we hold for ourselves...

Returning to love is easy for me.
