Today’s forgiving journal is about letting go of comparisons.
I sat for a long time today, trying to decide what to write. I compared this blog with other blogs that I wrote in the past, and I got down. Because I don’t want to do it worse than before.
God, how is it that I am starting to judge what I write in my forgiveness blog? ❤ Isn’t that missing the point?
I just want to say that I have so many prayers to forgiveness.
Maybe the biggest one is to experience it.
I went to a really neat shop today, called Beaming. In the bathroom, I saw a phrase, “The world is brighter when you’re beaming.” Underneath it were two really great directives, “Be present. Be compassionate.”
These are two ways of being that are blooming inside of me as I write this blog. Presence and compassion.
A dear friend mentioned that Buddha had this great quote on comparisons. I couldn’t find that one. What I did find is beautiful quote about how our compassion touches the places that need healing, as well as a beautiful quote by Rumi about how our Light lights the world.
This made me realize that there’s not really a lot that I need to do to let go of comparisons. All I need to do is just keep practicing forgiveness and to share the Light that I am best I can right here and now…and to relax and allow the healing in.
I truly forgive myself for judging myself.
I love you.
ps – this post is in response to Dutch Goes the Photo’s Challenge this week, Bloom. Frank, boy this one was a toughie for me. 🙂 Maybe the best ones are the posts that I really need to sit with!! Anyway, I am claiming that I am a bloom in progress.
