I am told or have read that what happens to us in life is not important. That we are to forgive those that have hurt us in the past. Because to blame others or circumstance for our unhappiness is to be connected to the ego. I understand this thinking, if I dare think, that to blame something or someone is to be concerned with the self, not understanding that the journey is forward and not back. I have managed to forgive, it is not in my nature to hold a grudge, I try to find the best in people. I recogniser others might have caused me pain but move on from this.
My question here though, is if we are to forget and forgive all that has been done to us, what should we do with the kindness and love that has been lavished upon us, is this of little consequence too? How can we let one action go but hold onto another, is there a contradiction here or am I not understanding.
Self-consciousness is the enemy, the pretend self, the thing that binds us and prevents us from finding the true self. Consciousness is the connection to source, without separation, a balance with nature, with the divine. If I’m understanding, everything that is done, every action, is done to the whole, and if we are connected as I believe we are, a group experience.
I would love your thoughts on this because I want to know about love. I promote love, I’m grateful for love and I, (although I should probably drop the ‘I’) feel love.
