Difficult if not impossible to maintain for more than a moment if my focus is on my ego mind. My ego mind justifies my grievances because my body feels threatened. How can I not hold a grievance if I feel threatened, small and vulnerable. Because I am not all knowing, all present and all powerful, guilt and shame are inevitable consequences as I realise my errors. In reality, I truly do not know what I do.
I trust in you, oh Lord of Peace, I am not just a body. My body is merely a communication device to express the glory of God’s love in the world. I am in my Father’s image, therefore I see. I am awake. I cannot be anything other than awake. When I am not awake, I am really, I just can see it. God forgives because it’s His nature, He cannot do otherwise. God is love. God is forgiveness. Above all, God is love. One day there will be no need for forgiveness because God never condemned in the first place. But for now, my path to the peace of God is through forgiveness.
