Radical Approach to Forgiveness


Lack of forgiveness will hold us back and cause us to become spiritually stagnant. We will find ourselves in a place where we are not living a life in the full, passionate expression of our heart’s desire. Forgiveness is about liberating our energy reserves and freeing ourselves from emotional pain to reduce the ego’s control over us.

I would love to say that forgiveness is simple and easy to do. It may be simple, but it is not easy.  Especially when we have not reduced the ego’s control over us. The ego is a master of the 'shoulds' and a trickster that wants to bring up unforgiving memories and negative emotions such as anger, rage, resentment, or jealousy.

The good news, forgiveness is one of the qualities of the self-possessed and it eliminates the energy patterns that keep guilt, shame and fear from remaining the dominating force in our entire being.  I am also aware that forgiveness cannot happen unless we are willing to commit ourselves to make it happen. Forgiveness is a process that requires a radical approach to let go and a conscious effort to free our mind.  

This is the tender realm of a "Radical Approach to Forgiveness’.  It is a process that begins by realizing that we are only humans. Forgiving others by realizing that they are only humans. Our efforts to let go and free ourselves from emotional pain reduces the ego’s control over us. Refusing to let go (forgiveness) is resistance to what we don’t want and attracting more of whatever we are resisting. A call for us to come alive by letting go of the past.  Why? Because letting go frees the mind from constantly re-experiencing the emotional pain from the past.

I believe that the most radical approach to achieving ‘Self-Empowerment’ in our human journey is for us to be free from the traps of the ego, cut our ties to the emotional pain from the past through the raw power of emotional intelligence. No act of forgiveness is too small if it radically liberates us from our cocoon; the price is eternal vigilance. A call for a radical approach to forgiveness…
