A Story on Forgiveness in Seven Parts

355. A Story on Forgiveness in Seven Parts

Part 1 – I hear the words: “I have forgiven you.” I feel the wonder and question: All? All my mistakes—things I did—things I should have done? I do not plan the wrong, but still it happens. How can forgiveness be so complete?

Part 2 – Belief hovers—new light breaks through. “I have forgiven you” sinks into my being.

Part 3 – Wonder explodes and I know grace, know in my heart-place I did not deserve and still I received.

Part 4 – I hear more words: “You forgive too.” Uh-oh! I ask new questions: How many times? And who? The wonder wavers as I hear: “Every time. All.”

Part 5 – Come on, I want to hold my anger, not give up the grudge. I want to wait until some better time when anger feelings and grudges have melted. But that is not what I hear.

Part 6 – The answers bounce and echo off my questions….. How many times? – “Every.” ….. Who? – “All.” …..And in that-heart place, I feel the vibration of how forgiveness works.

Part 7 – It’s not I did this for you, now you have to do this too. Instead there is a knowing deep inside that as I receive and hold the wonder of being forgiven, so also I can give same gift. I can say “I forgive you,” to each one – each time.
