The Path to Healing

Teachings - Forgiveness

The inability to forgive another is at the root of most controversies experienced by humanity at this time, throughout time indeed - controversies that are fueled by each new generation that are born and taught to never forgive, to never forget, to treat all those that come after the offender as if they were the original offender - this is the root of prejudice. The human that is able to understand the definition of prejudice - to pre-judge, to prohibit choice for another by informing them that they are incapable of being different; there are large portions of the population that are held in stasis by the thinking of other large portions of humanity. The belief that a particular race are slow or lazy or ignorant, incapable of caring for the self; these thoughtforms attach to these individuals, prohibiting them from escaping the field that has been created by those who pre-judge. Recognizing prejudice within the self is critical to breaking free of the field that fuels this thinking, important to all those who walk the path to healing, to recognize that all consciousnesses upon the earth are equally important, for each are present to bring forth particular experience, particular lesson.

When the student fails to see the self and energies are cast off towards another, the result is multiple lesson failure; for others have now been impacted by the self’s failure and often karmic calling scheduled for the self in future, so that the self may be unjustly accused, unfairly convicted, sentenced for life without judge or jury outside of the self. It is the student who believes that others intentionally damage others that is often the student who does intentionally damage others. The student that is able to understand that all are journeying forth to learn all that this planet has to offer, recognizing that errors in judgment are made by all every day, until the self awakens, until the self decides to invoke awareness the majority of the time, and these errors begin to be corrected.

The student that is able to look at the self’s past, to see all the players, to see those that the self perceived has damaged the self, to see those that the self knows has damaged others – and to see the selves that each have damaged each, to examine the feelings inside of hatred, anger, resentment, irritation, frustration, sorrow – to draw them forth, to taste them, reliving each situation to the fullest with the taste in the mouth and then to see the self’s face over the face of the other, to hear the self saying the words spoken by the other to another; for it is the human condition that when one is damaged by another, the same damage will be incurred upon another if the lesson has not been learned, if forgiveness has not been extended. This is karma.

Most individuals focus upon the negative - focus upon the other, for the mind is seeking logic, rationale, to make okay the behavior of the self; even once rationale has been received by the self, if the student is truly upon the path to healing, conscience will continue to draw forth the experience - the mind will no longer allow the self to file it away. It will come to the self in the dream state or in the exhausted state - when the self is lying, attempting to rest - the thoughts will intrude again and again and again; the self will be sickened by the thought, it will come forth so often - until the self is beaten by the thinking, can no longer think of the experience, for all angles have been examined, all that could be confessed has been confessed, all that can be seen has been seen, yet the thinking returns again and again and again, for the self has yet to recognize that all that remains to be done is to accept - to accept that the lesson did not fully belong to the self; rather, the other’s choices are what have created the likelihood for the other to never understand the experience fully.

Recognizing that no human is provided lesson independent of another is important. When a lesson cannot be understood, it is to look to the other, to realize that the lesson that involved the self could well have been for the other. It was the self’s failure to appropriately assign the lesson to the other that created the unease, that called forth the response that resulted in failure for the other, who was not even being tested, to inform the mind, “This was not our lesson - we have viewed all things; we have understood all that was presented. The portions that belonged to the self have been integrated.” All else need be reconciled to acceptance alone, for the self cannot fix, nor can the self change the experience for the other.

Willingness to embrace the other, even when the self was the damaged party, is critical to the self’s progress and shall oftentimes aid the other in learning the lesson for the self. Most humans cannot believe that another would embrace the self after the self has damaged them, for it is often this individual who would never embrace another who had damaged the self. It is the example of forgiveness that is brought forth to another who has not yet learned how critical forgiveness is to one who walks the path to healing.

It is the self-righteousness from the lesson plan of Denial that is being allowed center stage, so to speak; it is for the self to illuminate this behavior. The bristling of the self each time another attempts to aid the self is due to this chiding, this jabbing, provided by the self to others; it is believed by the self that another is doing the same to the self, when indeed the other is merely attempting to aid you, my brother (Loereve), to see the self in the moment.

The inability of the self to truly forgive another is at the root of this behavior. In order to remain self-righteous, in order to remain superior, the self must remind others of their past errors.
