I write to you now about further depth of Transformation. I believe that part of the transformation process is seeking to heal. In seeking to heal it means to make amends to those you harmed, and according to some quotes "Forgiveness is not for other people, it is for yourself so that you can get well and move on." - Anonymous until told otherwise...
You may notice that today's graphic is complicated and full of mixed messages.
You are CORRECT!!!
I believe that there is a Tug of War between those that seek to be forgiven, and those that forgive. Sometimes accountability and responsibility are brought to you directly and other times it pulls on you from the inside and the effort begins to seek that forgiveness for personal accountability and responsibility. I am sure that the outcomes in life are much better when you act on your own behalf for personal accountability than to be "brought to justice" so to speak. I think that there is a tug of war relationship between those in sorrow seeking forgiveness and the people we shall call the Forgivers, the ones who have been wronged and have wounds either noticeable or not, they carry some range of pain which those in sorrow are seeking to correct or make right or heal the damage they are now owning a part in. It is all very complicated stuff and emotional for sure. So complicated that the line of consequences can be blurry and the full impact of those consequences cannot always be seen or imagined or understood till after some confession or moment of asking for Forgiveness begins.
I am quite satisfied though that the world and society have a wealth of information and belief that there is power in the transformation of seeking forgiveness and the act of forgiving. While the images are many, and the connections to inner peace take many shapes, sizes, and paths, the power of Forgiveness is understood across many people, cultures, and the existance of experiencing the human condition of being.
Love also seems to be at the heart of this concept of Forgiveness.
I would enjoy your thoughts on the perspectives on either side, being the Forgiver, or the Seeker of Forgiveness.
Do you ever feel like you are tugging for some ground to stand on as you seek Forgiveness?
Do you ever feel like you are being tugged against when someone comes to ask for your Forgiveness?
Do you have some vision or imagery to describe the sorrow you feel when you seek forgiveness?
What mindset do you think is best for either the forgiver or the seeker of forgiveness?
