As I forgive, I remember my Divinity and the Divinity of others.
When a kitten wanders away from its mother, she gently brings it back home. The mother does not have negative feelings toward the kitten. She stays focused on caring for its health and safety. We care for our health and safety when we focus on our innate Divinity.
When I harbor negative thoughts and feelings about myself and others, it hurts me more than others. The Law of Mind action applies: thoughts and feelings held in mind tend to produce after their kind. My negative thoughts and feelings adversely affect my conscious and subconscious phases of consciousness, collective consciousness, as well as the physiologic environment of my body. When I am aware of negative and adverse thoughts and feelings, I simply change my mind. This is forgiveness. I think and feel thoughts of love and peace. I remember my Divinity and the Divinity of others.
Self-awareness leads to self-knowledge with self-acceptance and not self-condemnation. I forgive, I change my mind about myself and others. I leash my ego and unleash my Divinity. I know what to think, say and do. I make amends where appropriate.
When you are offering your gift at the altar … first be reconciled to your brother or sister. – Matthew 5:34-24
