Life is filled with the could’ve’s, would’ve’s and should’ve’s. Hearing that critic in ourselves, we quickly feel like we’re stuck in quicksand. Feeling stuck, we withdraw, we lose trust, we ultimately see darkness. This is the exact opposite of our true nature, which is light, seeing abundance and joy in every moment. In this very profound meditation, Dorothy takes us on the journey to self forgiveness, where we break free from the chains that keep us from living our true nature.
Self forgiveness begins with self awareness. We must recognize those thoughts that do not serve our highest good and then choose to break free of those thoughts. Coming from a place of peace, of forgiveness, we begin again, allowing light to shine from our heart.
Filled with thoughts of remorse and emotions of grief, my mind has been foggy for the past few weeks. Being forgetful of deadlines or when remembering them, not fully seeing the writing clearly on the wall, I find myself filled with remorse, of second guessing my every move or lack thereof.
Connecting with my breath, I find the relaxing meandering flow of life. Becoming soft and fluid like a river instead of hard and rigid like a stone, I allow my body and mind to relax. Being reminded that I am not these thoughts, that mistakes do not make me, that I am not even this body, I break free, becoming one with the light that resides in my heart. Feeling peace, feeling love, I begin to forgive myself. I am reminded that my life experiences make me a better person and that all things come together for my good. Therefore, as I continue to forgive, I choose to trust in the unknown, I choose to live as love in action so I can see the good in this and all situations from here on out.
