When I hold on to feelings of hurt, betrayal, or anger, I block the flow of love and peace in my life. While holding on to guilt, shame, or embarrass-ment after hurting another person keeps me from experiencing love and peace.
According to The Revealing Word, Forgiveness is “giving up the false for the TRUE.” This begins by using DIVINE LOVE and PEACE to desire to see differently – giving up my false perceptions so I can “see” the DIVINE. This removes anything that may be disrupting my experience of DIVINITY in myself or others.
Forgiveness happens when I am willing to let go of false perceptions that I have added to my own or another person’s DIVINITY. Even so, I need not justify or approve behavior that is unwelcome.
