“Whatever our religion, we know that if we really want to love, we must first learn to forgive before anything else.”

~ Mother Teresa

Love comes when there is no separation, when there is nothing that keeps you from being whole. And contrary to popular belief, the problem is not out there, the problem is inside. It’s in every negative thought you hold, whether about yourself or someone or something else.

Think about it. Do you ever feel good when you’re resentful or angry, or feeling guilty, betrayed, self-righteous, or powerless? Of course not. And you only feel bad like that because of the thoughts and beliefs that you’re holding onto.

This is where forgiveness comes into play. Forgiveness releases the negative judgments and makes us whole again. It’s not a gift to someone else, my friend, it’s a gift to yourself.

Forgiveness creates the space for love to flow.
