Forgiveness has the power to change not only you but also the one you forgive. It is a powerful force, forgiveness, it can change hearts, minds and souls, nations can be changed and the world can move on, all because of forgiveness.

Who would have thought such a simple word could do so much.

If we look at the major religions of the world, forgiveness is a key teaching, Jesus Christ died for the forgiveness of our sins, and in doing so, He has changed the world for all times.

Can we have that big of an effect? I would say yes we do, and we have proof of it in our world.  Gondi had to forgive his persecutors in his peaceful protest or the protest would not have been peaceful, his heart would have been too heavy with hate.  Nelson Mandela had to forgive to be an effective leader, and Pope John Paul II forgave the man who tried to kill him. Each of the people represents just a few examples of the power of forgiveness, and each has changed the world we live in today.

We each carry the same power; the power is there for us, if we choose to use it.

So how do we forgive others? The word is simple to say, but extremely hard to mean. The words “I forgive you” have a deep meaning and extreme power, but that power is only seen or felt when the meaning is true and deeply spoken.

To forgive others we have to start someplace, and the place to start is with yourself, we must be willing to truly forgive ourselves before you can even think about forgiving others. We cannot give to others what we do not have already. So if you have no forgiveness for yourself, how are you expected to give forgiveness to others?

Think about that for a few, take your time, let your mind get around that concept, let it sink in to the deepest parts of your heart, and feel the truth of it. It may take some time, minutes, hours, days or even weeks.

How can our forgiving ourselves affect our ability to forgive others? It can and it does. If we hold forgiveness from ourselves we are not free to give it to others, we lock our hearts down and chain up our souls, and keep forgiveness not only from ourselves but others.

I cannot tell you how to find forgiveness in yourself, nor can I tell you how to forgive yourself, but I can tell you it will take time and a lot of self searching. I would recommend you look for and read books on forgiveness and self discovery. I would also recommend any book by Dr. Wayne Dyer, his books will force you to look deep with and to take responsibility for your actions. Start there and work up to self forgiveness, than forgiveness of others.

It’s a long process, one that I am still working on, and most likely will until the day I die.

Can one be strong and weak at the same time? Can a person be over bearing and shy? Do we have the ability to be more than one self? Can we be many persons in one person?

Before I give you response, let me start off by saying I know people who act in such a way. They are a different person depending on who they are dealing with. Sometimes they are nice and understanding and other times they can be cold and harsh. It all depends on what is in it for them. The personality changes to benefit them and to please others around them. They may be shy if that is called for or strong if they see a chance to move in.

But are they truly two different personalities? Can one person really have 2 sides? I say no, is only one personality at play here. It is one of manipulation and control. It is a personality that centers on the self. It is one controlled by the EGO.

Now before everyone starts to yell at me, yes I do understand that we all act differently in different situations. We do what is necessary and called for at that particular time. That is not what I am talking about.

People know me; they know who I am and what I am like. When I meet people for the first time, they get an idea of whom and what I am. So if, for example, I meet someone for the first time at Church, they will see a more subdued me, but still me. So if that person sees me outside of Church they will not be shocked at what I am saying or doing. They understand me. The people above that I am referring to are not like this, they act in ways that are not true to themselves, they are manipulating the situation to cast the best light on themselves or to gather what they need. If the same person were to see them outside of the situation where they met they would not recognize them as who they knew.

We all know people like this, they feed off of others, they place the world and the entire universe around them, and they are the center. I have worked with them; they are in my family and are in my circle of friends. It is a frustrating relationship to have; the closer you are to them, the more you notice the many in the one. And the more you are expected to know who is who and when they will appear. Because once again, they are the center, you just revolve around them.

Their EGO’s are huge, and acts as there gravity force, keeping all inline and revolving around them, and any person that falls out of line, no longer revolves around them are sent off in too deep space or made to crash. That is until they decide they are needed once again.

So how do we deal with this, what are we to do with such a person? It has taken me years of learning to discover the answer to that question. I have read many books and as I have stated, I know many people who fit in to this, so my life experiences has taught me a lot, but I am a slow learner, and it has taken me many years to finally understand all that I have learned. So what is one to do with a situation like this, they are to leave it, get out of its gravitational pull.

Yep it’s that simple… Sort of…

I know that it’s not easy to leave a friendship or family member behind, but if you truly wish to make a better you, the key to a new you is to dust off all that is unhealthy for you. To leave behind anything that will pull you back. Read Dr. Wayne Dyer’s “The Power of Intention” to get a deeper understanding or even the Bible, Jesus himself walks away from unhealthiness. We must surround ourselves with positive energy, not and Egocentric energy, we must align with people and things that will make us better humans, more capable of creating change not only in ourselves but in the world around us.

Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing

why, yet sometimes seeming to divine a purpose.

-Albert Einstein

 

A brilliant man, Albert Einstein, he changed our world, and our thinking.  Often times with simple phrases such as the one above.

We all have a purpose, a reason to be here on this earth, we all play a part in the play called life. And as any good actor will tell you, there are no small parts, only small actors. I may not be an Albert Einstein, but then again he is no Paul Sposite. So in the end it all works out, we off set each other, creating a greater whole.  

Belief in self is fine, in fact necessary, but belief in, as Albert puts it, a divine purpose, something greater than self, is an absolute necessity.

To truly improve, to truly grow, we need an understanding that we are not the do-all and end-all of our existence, that there is a greater force than ourselves out there.

Dr. Wayne Dyer calls is the “Source” in his book “The power of intention”. This is a life changing book, one that truly maps out the need for and the power of the “Source” (God). The connection that has to be cleaned up and re-established, it is not a matter of creating the connection, it was always there, it’s a matter of recognizing it and “cleaning it up”. I would recommend that everyone read (or listen to the CD’s of it) the “Power of Intention”, and watch how it changes your life, for the better.

The all knowing power source, God, is your ticket to truly changing in to what was intended for you. By re-establishing that connection you are connecting to pure goodness (Godness), re-establishing the connection that was there before you entered this world, recreating a relationship to the center of life, here on earth and in the heavens.

To connect to the source means connection to love, charity and all that is pure and good. God cannot create badness He cannot create that which He is not. He can only create what he is, Pure Love and Goodness.

Change is a partnership, one that God (The Source) has given to you, has always be there you, all you have to do is connect to it, allow it to surge through you and around you. As Dr. Dyer states you must be inspired (the original meaning of the word is in-spirit), you must want that connection, and cultivate it. God wants nothing but what is best for you, and by reestablishing that connection, God will provide what is missing in your life, allow you to grow in self.

God has a Divine Purpose for you, it’s not hidden nor is it mystical or magical. It is there waiting for you, if you only connect back to the source, connect back to where you came from, goodness, back to God.

Change your life in one minute….

Good starter line don’t you think? What could you possibly do in one minute that will change your life? In truth, a lot! But I will give you one idea, one simple quick idea:

Think positive about your day for 60 seconds before you get out of bed. Just lay there and think of all the positive things you can do or that will happen to you for just this one day.

See, easy as can be, no reading, no homework, just thinking. What could be easer? And it only takes 60 seconds, one small minute. And trust me, it will work. Our own outlook on life, on our day has a huge impact on how it turns out. Our own thought process plays a major role in not only how we see things, but also how those around us see things. So by spending 60 seconds thinking positive thoughts will affect the rest of your day, and all around you.

The power of positive thinking should not be overlooked, Dr. Wayne Dyer has write numerous books on the subject, he talks about the power of positive thinking, and how it can change your life. I have read him and must agree, a positive thought has much more energy than a negative one. Positive energy will carry us on our way, a negative one will hold us down.

The bible even talks about the power of positive thoughts, the story of not concerning ourselves with life, God will care for us, so why concern ourselves with it. You all know the story; Jesus is using the bird and lilies of the fields as an example. Jesus is telling us, think positively, God will care for your needs, if you allow him to. And how do we allow him to do so, but not concerning ourselves with negative thoughts.

So give it a try, just spend 60 seconds, one small minute of your day, your morning and think positive thoughts of how your day is going to turn out. Don’t concern yourself with tomorrow or the next day, just think about today and all the positive things going on in your life. They are there, nothing is ever total gloom and doom, and there is always a positive, even if it comes from a negative. But remember we project energy, either a negative or a positive; it is up to us; so why not make is positive?
