 404 Day 4 of a 40-Day Practice

This is Day Four of Lou-is' 40-Day feasting on his individual heart's desire, which is something he wants to attain and to fast from everything, which is unlike it. This project is to build the Spiritual, mental, physical, emotional and social equivalent or container to enable him to change and keep that change, by practice. TODAY: FORGIVENESS AGAIN AND AGAIN

TODAY: FORGIVENESS AGAIN AND AGAIN

Al when you read this each day, I would like to remind you that these thoughts came to me for my purpose and not yours. They may be useful as a thought starter but trust your intuition to accept or reject these ideas. Ask our Father for guidance and it will come to you.

Once again, I am faced with lack of ability to forgiven someone I thought I had. Early this morning I was having a conversation with an absent person, some people end at a Mental Hospital doing this. It was clear that I needed help. I was asking our Father for guidance, for an understanding of what was going on with my inability to forgive. This is what came to me: My willingness and good intention to forgive is a good beginning but clearly not enough at times. I had forgiven parts of the "crime" but not all. I questioned how many times should I forgive someone seven times? I had heard that a wise One responded to the same question with; "Not to forgive just seven times but seventy times seven if needed." Forgiveness is the language of the heart and so is my created purpose, mission. This lack of forgiveness takes me off my mission path.

What I can do is my responsibility; everything else is our Father's responsibility, even when it comes to forgiveness, at all levels, remembered or not once I awaken to it. This reminds me did I include our Father at my first attempt to forgive this person? I am reminded that I cannot grow or awaken with a closed-mind or being judgmental.

Forgiveness turns the light back on I had turned off and the darkness disappears with my illusion of separation. It is in my enlightened self-interest to forgive quickly holding nothing back. As soon as I realize I am unable or unwilling to forgive I need to turn to our Boss to take of this forgiveness for the one I judged and for me. I now have an abiding faith in His grace to do so.
