Watercolor by Lyn Mason, July 2006
Defined by the Artist: Forgiveness embodies Christ consciousness and God's grace. This powerful transformative energy is the greatest of all healing gifts we inherited as God's deserving children. It is also our highest calling. Forgiveness requires surrender of the ego and the awareness that this gift lives in the present moment where God is. Like God, forgiveness is always available. This divine energy can manifest in an instant, simply by having the heartfelt intention to forgive. Self forgiveness requires self acceptance, which stems from an awareness that we are worthy of our mercy, of unburdening our hearts of self-judgments. Embracing our shadow side as well as our light cleanses us of negative thought forms and patterns and leads to further healing, freedom, wholeness and compassion for others. By becoming unconditionally self loving, we align ourselves with the natural truth of our being. If we challenge ourselves to forgive ourselves, we can indeed claim our divine inheritance of lives filled with joy, love and peace. As forgiveness spreads from self to others, our lives blossom into their full potential, with dignity and beauty. And as we heal our own lives with the powerful energy of forgiveness, we bless and uplift the whole world.
