Earlier we spoke about how forgiveness, especially forgiving others can bring an end to our suffering:
There is so much more to forgiving.
Your suffering doesn’t end by forgiving others.
You also have to forgive yourself.
I can already hear some of you bristling.
What do I need to do that for?
It’s everyone else who has caused me suffering over the years.
Let Me ask you this:
And what of the pain you created for yourself?
Let Me explain.
You created suffering every time you put yourself down.
You created suffering every time you told yourself that you are not good enough, or smart enough or strong enough.
You created suffering every time you did things to sabotage your body, your mind and your heart.
Do you know how many times you hurt yourself through your thoughts?
Do you know how many times you hurt yourself through your words?
Do you know how many times you hurt yourself through your deeds?
Each and every one of these moments has left you suffering much, much more than what other people have said or done.
It is only when you recognise the suffering you have created for yourself that you will take steps to forgive yourself.
Sometimes you find it easier to forgive others than to forgive yourself.
This often happens if you feel unworthy in some way.
Wrapped in your suffering, you forget your true nature, your true value, your true form.
You forget that you are a part of the Universe, of God, of Divine Perfection.
You forget that you are a part of the Infinite Intelligence that is Unconditional Love itself.
