Words of Wisdom: Forgiveness

“To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness.”

~ Robert Muller

“We are all doing the best we can with the understanding, knowledge, and awareness we have… We may not know how to forgive, and we may not want to forgive; but the very fact we say we are willing to forgive begins the healing practice.”

~Louise Hay

“Holding resentment is like eating poison and waiting for the other person to keel over.”

~ Unknown

“I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note – torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one. “

~ Henry Ward Beecher

When you don’t know what you don’t know…

“…You can’t grow.”

These past few weeks have been such an “eye opener” for me. Its amazing what a dose of pure truth can do for one’s life. It’s also so amazing how so many people can have walked the face of the Earth for hundreds of thousands of years with the doors of pure power and greatness wide open for them, yet they’re unable to enter because of what they don’t know, about themselves and life… And they have NO IDEA what they don’t know [Pause] … Now that’s deep.

I write this post from a place of gratitude. From this place I am beyond thankful for all that life has brought my way, the greatness and especially the difficulties. I am thankful for the great philosophers that have come before us to help guide us in the direction of our power; those who have sacrificed their lives and freedom to make sure that eventually mankind reaches it’s fullest potential, or close to it.

I was lucky to learn at an extremely early age that every single experience in life is nothing short of a lesson in this class called life. Either you look for the lesson to improve one’s self, or continue to go through life making the same choices that lead to misfortune, poverty, and self-destruction.

“Just know that I chose my own fate, I drove by the fork in the road and went straight.”  – Jay Z

I’m mostly thankful for the insane curiosity that I have of about life. I’ve probably been on what I like to call ” a quest for evolution” since the day I was born. I’ve always had a strong desire to understand the intangibles of life so that I could operate at my best state. My quest for spiritual gain has brought me full circle to a state of peace and understanding, and an undeniable awareness of  the power that I possess… the potential for POWER that every human being that ever lived has.

The road blocks that prevents one from their source of power typically present themselves when one decides that there is only ONE ABSOLUTE TRUTH in life (one way to live, one way to think, one way of doing something, one way to be…). The dangers of believing in absolute truth is that it shuts one off from the majority of mankind, and places them in a bubble. Belief in one absolute truth keeps those individuals stuck in a seemingly never-ending cycle  because their desire to learn all but disappears (remember, they already have ALL of the answers to life in their possession, and that is their ABSOLUTE truth). We all know people like this, mostly because we all have been that person at some point.

What I now know for sure is that when you become closed off from continuing to seek wisdom and knowledge from all that life has to offer, you shut yourself off from your source of power. Open-mindedness and understanding  is the only means through which one can levitate to heights of power and prosperity that all GOD’s that ever existed intended for all mankind.

Life is a never-ending education, when you stop learning and trying to understand, you stop living, or become the living dead.
