Forgiving our Mistakes
We are all learning to live more loving and valuable lives within the parameters we have been given – or rather those we have chosen ‘this time around’. However we have all fallen short at some stage of how we would prefer to behave.
Rather than focus on those events, thoughts, behaviours and actions, let us now forgive ourselves, and forgive others who may have been involved.
In the long run, these are just steps towards our preferred goal of loving, compassionate and abundant lives.
When we make a ‘mistake’, as we often do, let’s thank ourselves for acknowledging it as a ‘mistake’, something we decide not to repeat, even though sometimes we may have to repeat that same ‘mistake’ a few more times until the message gets through.
Of much greater consideration than the ‘mistake’ are the realization, and the decision not to repeat it. So when you acknowledge a ‘mistake’ – a thought or an action that you have now decided not to repeat, rather than condemning your action, please congratulate yourself. We all have many old habits, beliefs and ingrained behaviours that no longer fit within the new model of humanity that we are building.
Each time one of these old patterns confronts you, and you recognize and become aware of its negativity, this is a wonderful step forward.
It’s easy to see these patterns in others, but when we stop denying their presence in our own behaviour and make the often difficult decision to move forward……..big congratulations! It is these decisions that are rebuilding our planet.
