Forgiveness

emotion-senses-forgivenessAcceptance & Forgiveness

Taking personal responsibility for all that you do means accepting that your condition and situation is your creation, a direct result of your own actions. This is a more developed state of consciousness, an upgrade that replaces earlier ineffective behavior of blaming and complaining. The knowledge that you created your current situation is daunting at first, especially when you don’t like your present conditions. But once it is accepted, it means you also have the power to re-create your life the way you’d like it to be.

It is helpful to realize how much time it took to get where you are, so patience helps deal with the time needed to change your thoughts, actions, and then your conditions. Understand with compassion that you were mostly not aware of how and what you have been creating in your life.  But you will begin to see it all.

Some ways life brings you into Acceptance

  • Sometimes extreme disappointment that life doesn’t give you what you want can tear from your tight grip the fixation on that expectation. Then you are free to see all that was there for you.
  • Repeated frustration that life and others can’t be controlled, don’t always do or see it your way, can help you relax your attempts to control.
  • Eventual exhaustion of getting what you want and never being satisfied can help you let things take care of themselves.
  • All of these open a vast storehouse of resources previously unnoticed, but available in the consciousness called surrender, allowing, acceptance.

The greatest challenge to accepting, as well as its primary benefit, is acceptance of your self. Puzzling that it would be so universally difficult to gratefully receive the gift of our own unique being and life. It is the remedy for all self-esteem, self-worth issues. We enjoy all the hard work and victories of comparing, competing, striving, conforming, performing, standing out to be different, trying to be, and attempting perfection. When we have had enough, there emerges a greater truth: “I am who I am and that is that”. It is SO relaxing and energetically economical to just be you. All the rest is stress.

Self-Acceptance is a deeply healing process that includes clear self-awareness and requires honest self-assessment and the ability to accept your failings and flaws. Only then can you equally accept or excellence. When all parts are allowed to be, they become available; you are fully functional for the first time. You were created with definite challenges yet given every bit of the resources within you to grow into the ability to win your life.

With acceptance of self comes accepting others with all that is fabulous and flawed in them. Your ability to forgive yourself and others are always closely related, so you can reach that consciousness by either route.At times it is easier to forgive a friend than to accept a mistake or characteristic of our own. Other times you may find an opening to let go of a long held idea of who you should be, embrace what was seen as a dark side. This gives you room to accept and forgive others.
