Today’s forgiving journal is about Letting Go.
Funny, I don’t know even what to name this post. I was thinking “Letting Go of the Past”…. “Letting Go of What I Am”…. and I chose to simply call it “Letting Go” and let the chips fall where they may.
I’m aware of a limiting belief in my mind that…
I am unworthy
I need to get it all perfect
I’m defined by my past
What I am also aware of is the centrality of this Lao Tzu quote in my forgiving process today:
The essence of who I am … is what I am learning with my forgiving process, experiencing it beyond just words, knowing it by loving and choosing to take care of myself. Time for my forgiving process:
1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging myself as defined by my limiting beliefs. I forgive myself for judging that it’s not possible for me to let go FULLY, especially of the mind. (and as my spiritual teacher John-Roger says, “etcetera”!)
2 – Letting Go: I let go of the limiting belief that I am unworthy. I let go of the limiting belief that I need to get it all perfect. I let go of the limiting belief that I’m defined by my past. I CHOOSE TO LOVE ME IN ALL WAYS.
3 – I am grateful for this Lao Tzu quote…it goes beyond just my mind and speaks to my Soul. I am grateful for my open heart. And I am grateful for the smile on my face.
The truth is that I am all of these things and more than them. Amazing grace keeps popping up inside of me. What I take that to mean is that I am born anew – I am looking forward to seeing what I might be.
I love you!
Ps – please feel free to share your experience of forgiving, so happy to hear it.
