FORGIVENESS AS FREEDOM

Forgiveness comes in the moments that really matter

Like those of life or death

It comes when we are asked to be bigger, wider, expansive

More than we have ever been before

 

Forgiveness opens doors

Doors that we have tried to close and lock

 

Forgiveness breathes us

Into places we have tried to forget

 

Forgiveness is a mirror

Into the parts of our soul that we have rejected

 

We forgive to create freedom

We forgive to liberate

We forgive to love

Perhaps it’s more accurate to say that ‘life evolves through a series of mini deaths’, each one a shedding of an old way of living, an outworn belief, or even a global system that is long past the time of it being useful to ALL.

 

And ALL is the watch word of this decade. Watch and see.

THE GIFT OF A MOMENT

Death is a strange and multifaceted experience.

Over the last few years I have experienced this life changing transition in many forms. Whether it was the death of family members, the death of friendships or the death of parts of my identity, each time I was left changed forever. Transformed by the gift of insight, love and surrender to forces beyond my human control.

 

This week however, like a bolt from the blue, I was told that friends of mine had lost their young daughter to cancer.
