Core Truth

If we are connected to others from a place of truth, is there space for jealousy? If we understand the truth of who we are at our core, can we speak negatively about another? If we believe in a Higher Power, is it necessary to take on the responsibility of judging someone else’s truth?

The mind judges what is good or bad. Love brings only good.” ~ Deepak Chopra

Vengeance

One of my favorite shows is OWN’s “Greenleaf” which follows the deeds and misdeeds of a family leading a mega-church in the south.

The midseason cliffhanger saw the primary character in a life and death struggle with the show’s primary villain. Her inability to forgive led her to interpret her antagonist’s actions incorrectly, which led to heightened emotions (in this case panic), which led to actions that may lead to results contrary to what she wants.

She has looked for peace in his punishment, but peace can only come through forgiveness…

Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?” Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.” Matthew 18: 21-22, MSG

Inhale Forgiveness, Exhale Punishment…
Inhale Peace, Exhale Revenge…

Reflections With Renita

Forgiveness is Freedom

Forgiveness has been at the forefront of my experience over the past few years. And I’ve gotten really clear that being able to forgive others is about me…that I can forgive without another person doing anything…that forgiveness is freedom.

As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison.” ~ Nelson Mandela

Inhale Forgiveness, Exhale Conditions…
Inhale Forgiveness, Exhale Resentment…
Inhale Forgiveness, Exhale Vengeance…
