Yesterday my son and I were playing around (he’s 40 by the way) and I tapped him on the shoulder and said in a loud voice, “You have wronged me and i’ll NEVER, ever forgive you!!” To which he brilliantly replied, “Thank God God for that!” which set us both to laughing, me so hard i nearly split mt sides!
Why was that so funny? Because he understands the power of forgiveness. If we don’t forgive people we actually block their return of karma for the event we are holding onto! So the thing we want most is prevented by us not forgiving! If only people could know this there would be a lot more justice in the world and a lot more karmic harm to the perpetuators of negative deeds.
Not only do we stop them receiving their own negative returns but we also make ourselves spiritually homeless because our place in the universe is in the love column and we can’t be in two places at once. When we won’t forgive we move from the love column to the Justice column but we cannot administer Justice, only God can do that. So instead of administering Justice we just end up blocking it! And the perpetuator walks away free as long as we don’t forgive them!
So we end up homeless in the wrong column (Justice) and protect the perpeuator of the misdeed against us! Is that Justice to either party? No, of course it isn’t. So how do we rectify this problem? By simply forgiving and forgetting. By forgiving we move ourselves back to the love column (to forgive is human) and by forgetting all about it we fulfill ourselves spiritually (to forget is divine).Not that we don’t learm from the mistakes we made in letting the event happen to us – but we abstarct it from the person and just remember it as a generalized lesson. That is the meaning of forgetting.
Peace then reigns and our hearts are happy! And at the same time we unblock the Justice column so the karmic returns can instantly return to the perpetuator – classic “Instant Karma” (as sung about by John Lennon!)
There is a slight catch however. Many people forgive and hand people onto grace. Grace means total forgiveness of the wrong so no returns apply to it. To get instant Karma we have to forgive them and hand them onto Justice. If a friend hurts us we hand them onto grace so there is no Karmic returns. Do you see that as the victim we have complete control over the returns to the perpetuators? That is the way the Spiritual world is set up.
So If I had said to my son, “You did me a wrong and I’m going to forgive you and hand you onto to justice!” his reply would have been, “Arrgh! You Bastard!!!!” and we both would have laughed again!
May Love, Detachment, Health, Happiness, Peace, Success and Prosperity BE yours,
