Words of Inspiration | Forgive and Be Free
Making mistakes in life is a part of every human being’s journey. There was a great story in antiquity (over 2,000 years ago) where in a certain land existed a law that if someone did a particular wrong thing & were caught, they were then publicly stoned to death (horrific I agree). One of the spiritual leaders of the time felt compassion for a lady who was about to be stoned to death by a group of men and he declared to the crowd “He who has never made a mistake can now cast the first stone”. Immediately, because this leader was respected and revered, one by one each man threw away their stone and walked away. Eventually all the men had walked away and no one was left to stone her, so the lady was spared her life.
This story was a clear illustration that every human being makes mistakes so let’s not kid ourselves by accusing others of wrong doing without looking at ourselves first. So it is with forgiveness. When we hold onto the hurt because someone did something that was wrong to us, we are actually holding ourselves back by not acknowledging the truth, that is, that all people have flaws and sometimes hurt others. The only way to let go if someone has done the wrong thing is to forgive them, let them be cleansed out of your consciousness and then live free once again – a bit like a weight lifted off your shoulder.
We forgive not because we are letting the other person off the hook per say, but because we realise everyone makes mistakes and more importantly we realise that by letting it go we free ourselves from any further torment. There is no benefit to holding onto these hurts – let go, and be free. I encourage you today to think about who you need to forgive; perhaps you need to forgive yourself for errors past or present so that you can free your mind and soul to get on with enjoying life and being your best.
Live with passion, stay on your life purpose, and always be at peace.
