“Practice the art of allowing. Watch your body as it goes through its motions. The hair changing to gray or falling out, the skin sagging…the little changes that happen on their own, independent of your opinion about them. Then practice the same kind of noninterference with your family, your friends, your co-workers-…-everyone. The Beatles had it right–there will be an answer if you just let it be. This is surrender. This is the art of giving up your need to control your world and everyone in it.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer, The Shift
Forgive Yourself. Let the past go. You did the best you could at the time with the understanding, awareness, and knowledge that you had. You are a different person now and you’ll do it differently.
There is no time to regret, as all that we did brought us just where we are and where we are supposed to be. If we knew better, we would have done it differently.
We gain experiences with all experiences we have, some of them are pleasant and some of them are not. When time passes by, we discover that the certain unpleasant people thought us a lesson and that now we are stronger then before. People’s bad behavior is still bad, but our response to it defines us, not their bad behavior. If you don’t know how to forgive, just close your eyes and imagine that person surrounded with love and light… Keep repeating quietly: I forgive you, I forgive you…No judgement, just imagine that person in a shiny cloud… Then try to remember that he or she was once an innocent child… Imagine that child crying, reaching out for help… Comfort that child and tell him: it’s Ok. When you feel more comfortable, open your eyes gently… Repeat this techinique as often as necessary. Believe me, it works… You feel more free and calm, and this is the only purpose of forgivness exercise. Andd when you forgive, you let it be at the same time: you forgive and you allow yourself to move on.
