Humans have long been entwined in emotions. If we talk about the outward meaning of Adam and Eve story, then what we see is slavery to emotions……………….. This outward trend of relying too much on emotions (Positive less, more of negative) makes our life topsy turvy, but we seldom realize.
Mostly emotions bind us in situations that we have a premonition off, or certain beliefs, limitations or understanding of. We want a certain situation to forever go as we think or like, if this cycle of our thought is negated by a situation/person, then only we become bound with unwanted emotions like anger, irritation, frustration, depression et al which lead us to an unending path of misery where we remain bound to in every incarnation. So our negative feelings towards people, situations and likes bind us like chain and in every incarnation we are tied so much together that those people and situations keep on manifesting in our lives………………..
This recurring pattern not only halts our life to some extent but also creates blockages to prosperity (of relationships/friendships/health/goodwill/happiness/peacefulness/ spirituality & development of self)
Forgiveness is the one and only tool through which we can cut through the bondage and be a free person and regain our dominion of positivity. Because keeping Compassion live in heart and expanding its space can bring in immense peace and tranquillity……………..
But have heard many people say “I can’t forgive”
This one sentence does not only fill our bodies with filthy negativity but we tend to attract more and more such situations, people & circumstances in our life, not realizing that this is our own doing of planting seeds of hatred and reaping them again and again……………
So forgive and forget. Mother Teresa once said:
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
So if you want to look into the mirror and see an image of unburdened free being then below is a small ritual of forgiveness. Do it every day till 21 days for each person you want to forgive then only you will be eligible to ask for forgiveness. Forgiveness heals the Soul………….
Sit comfortably. Close your eyes. Take deep breaths upto 7-10 counts. Now visualize the person who has hurt you in front of you. Say to the person “I forgive you for any pain that you have ever brought to me in this life or in any other life, whether real or imagined, deliberate or unintentional. I ask that you forgive me for any hurt that I have ever brought to you, in this life or in any other life, whether real or imagined, deliberate or unintentional.
I bless you, I release you to God’s care and keeping, and I set us both free”
Now see the person going away slowly………
Repeat this prayer 3 times.
The next 21 days it should be continued with and then move ahead………….
Repeat this with a single person for at least 6 months – a year. If you feel you can go ahead with more time. Timing is only bound to your Spirit of letting Go and Letting GOD in!!!!
