Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.Mark Twain
Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.Henry Ward Beecher.
The Philosopher’s Corner
Happy Good Friday everyone. I am not here to preach, but to offer philosophical and psychological insight into the nature of today’s holiness for believers and non-believers alike. Even for those that do not practice of the Christian faith, in celebrating beliefs of higher morals, ethics, and values, a doorway opens that allows a clearer picture of life to emerge. This light can subsequently change our personal as well as the collective nature of our being, and can as Mr. Beecher says be one fairest blossom of the soul. The light has always been present, but may have never been seen, taken to heart, or moved within as a means to bring its effect into conscious being.
Acts of forgiveness are powerful. The soul lets go of its tie to the trauma, the transgression that is past, and seeks a higher frequency from that dwelling place it once rested. Through forgiveness, we let go. The only problem is, that most people fear that forgiveness equates to an act of forgetting, which would thus lead to a repeat of the victimization that created to the need for forgiveness in the first place.
Forgiveness is one moral present behind the story of Jesus Christ, but it is not the only one. In his life, he was sent as a beacon of hope, a healer of the masses, so that humanity could be saved from the original transgression that brought forward a consciousness that perceives good and evil as God does. But this is only one part of the story, for the act of forgiveness is always only the beginning.
Through forgiving, space is made for the soul. This space creates a sanctum sanctorum in the individual, allowing them to move from lower to higher frequency states. It is from this place that feelings such as hope, faith, gratitude, and even love can emerge, and work their magical effects on our personal and collective wellbeing.
Remember yesterday’s quote…
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.Jesus Christ
The Love is Perfect, just the way it was, is, and forever will be. Is there suffering, yes, as the violet alludes to this phenomenon, nothing can escape this fate. However, through the act of letting go, we can create new storylines around its presence.
Prayers and Blessings to you all… You are in my thoughts. Believe… Achieve… Advance Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams!
