The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.
Think back to what life was like for you growing up. Think about the chores and responsibilities that you had. When you were asked to go and complete a chore, and you dreaded it, the chore tended to be much more difficult. When you were asked to complete a chore, and you looked forward to it, then the chore was pretty easy. It wasn't the chore itself, but rather the thoughts about the chore that made it either enjoyable or dreadful. The same is true in anything and everything that we do in life.
When we look at our relationships and hold grudges about the past, then we lose the joy of the moment. When we look for bad things from others, we will tend to find them. It is our ability to look for the good in others that helps us to stand apart from the illusion. It is our choice to forgive that will bring salvation to a darkened world. I think back to the majority of the stories of healing from the Bible. In each of the stories, Jesus tells the person that their faith has healed them. The faith, their self-forgivenss and belief in salvation, that is what healed their ailment.
The parables from the Bible help us to understand that when we forgive, we impact everything around us. When we hold on to the wrongs of others, we are holding onto fear instead of faith. We are grasping at the fear that they will not have to pay for what they have done or how we think they have made us feel. Fear, my friend, is the opposite of love. Fear is unforgiveness. Faith is love and love is healing.
My forgiveness of myself and those that I encounter is what provides the pathway to salvation for others. My choice is to shine my light bright so that every mind may feel peace through my forgiveness; and so others might learn to forgive and bring peace to the world as well. What will your choice be?
