What is forgiveness? Forgiveness is holding the attitude that love is unconditional no matter what. To love unconditionally means to not attach any conditions to your love.
As the saying goes, “To err is human, to forgive is divine.”
The Integrated Ascended Master always chooses Christ Consciousness over negative ego consciousness, love over fear. So he always chooses forgiveness over holding grudges. He makes a difference between a person’s identity and their behaviour. Someone’s behaviour may be out of line, however, regardless of their behaviour, they are still unconditionally loveable as a Child of God.
The Integrated Ascended Master realizes that in truth forgiving others has nothing to do with the other person; it has to do with correcting faulty thinking within ourselves, because all lessons are learned within self.
Make a commitment today to hold an attitude of forgiveness towards self and others, regardless of the circumstances. And remind yourself that whenever there is a need for forgiveness, there is merely a need for correcting faulty thinking within yourself.
