I Make Peace

 

We are told by spiritual teachers that it is essential to forgive others and ourselves for any grievances we may hold. We are told that it doesn’t mean that we condone the behaviour, or accept the person back into our life. It doesn’t mean we have to understand, see eye-to-eye or allow them to continue harming us.

What forgiveness means, is that we are ready to let go. We intend to move on, without the hindrance of painful moments. Forgiveness is about the Intention to change; to start afresh, unencumbered by the negative challenges of the past.

The next step in forgiveness, is to Make Peace.

Making Peace is the closure part of forgiveness. It is the part that makes an affirmative decision to go forward on a path of light, goodness and healing. Making Peace is about compassion, and positive perseverance; it is focussing on the fulfilment of your desires, rather than being tied down by the fears of past inadequacies.

Making Peace is a way of life. It is a new way of being with yourself and with others. It is about healing power being present in every moment of interaction with anyone or anything. When we Make Peace, our entire world opens up in a new direction, one that is Sacred and Holy. In Peace, all is well. All-ways.

I came to this realisation recently, after doing some deep forgiveness work whereby I wrote out all the people, ideas, things both animate and inanimate – anything and everything that has ever caused me to feel offended or upset – I wrote “I forgive…”. It was exhausting work, but nonetheless important to arrive at this stage. It is here where I now feel released of all the pressures and burdens of carrying around all those useless, pointless, harmful thought forms.

I put down my battle swords, and picked up beaming candles of light and healing.

I arm myself now instead with a transforming shield of light and love. As arrows continue to fly, I let them bounce off, because I am now fortified with the spiritual practice of a commitment to Making Peace.

I remind myself of the necessity to keep clear about Making Peace. My inner thoughts embrace Making Peace. It is my first thought in the morning, it is my last thought at night. It makes me At Peace. It heals me. And as it heals me, it heals the world.
