The Power of Forgiveness


Forgiveness is probably one of the most powerful forces for change in your life. This isn’t a new concept. You hear this from every area of your life. Most self help teachers repeat it over and over again. How many times have you realized that if you don’t forgive someone, you will keep yourself stuck in a negative pattern?

Most people think that forgiveness is something we need to give to others, or get from others. People look externally for forgiveness the same as we project all our other wounds, because our minds don’t give it to ourselves. Through our judge and victim, our mind cuts us off from what our hearts already hold for us – forgiveness.

Something to keep in mind is that until you forgive yourself, you cannot forgive others. Until you love yourself unconditionally, you cannot love others unconditionally. Until you don’t judge or victimize yourself, you cannot stop judging or victimizing others. Until you are completely honest to yourself, you cannot be completely honest with others.

My teacher once told me that the steps in the path of transforming to a life of joy is as follows: awareness-acceptance-forgiveness-deservedness. These steps are not just covering overall aspects of your outer world, but most importantly your inner world. What in the world does that mean?

Every moment of your life is the only moment there is. This is what living in the now teaches you. The past is gone and is not the truth of who and what you are experiencing NOW. The future is a lie that your mind loves to dangle out in front of you to steal your energy. The only reality that exists is the reality you are experiencing right now. The Toltec way of life leads you to live intensely in the now.

When you make the commitment to being a Toltec warrior on your path to freedom, you begin learning how to take your awareness, your attention, back from the tyranny of your minds focus on your wounds and hiding them from you and your world. The art of stalking guides you to regain your energy and power. You begin to become aware of who and what you truly are. You begin choosing from the heart instead of your mind which is always choosing from your wounds. When you move to awareness and begin healing and living from your heart, your mind moves back to being the tool it was meant to be for you to function in the world instead of the controlling force in your life. Remember, your mind only knows and understands its filters. Your mind’s filters are all your wounds you have been holding and hiding from yourself, they are your judge and your victim-stance, they are your personal importance, they are the lies about you and your world that your mind chose to accept as truth when you were domesticated.

So as you cultivate your awareness through stalking, you begin to find your wounds and you heal those wounds through owning them, accepting them, and expressing them. You

The next challenge you will find yourself up against is forgiveness. This is going to come up on a constant basis. Every wound you have, every lie you have accepted about yourself, every instance that you are holding where you went against your “book of law (lies)” that you find within yourself, every judgement you make against yourself, every time you victimize yourself…you will have to forgive yourself. It is good to understand that all the repressed emotions that are tied up in your wounds and lies are always with you. you are ALWAYS feeling them. Your mind will always hold them as long as you don’t accept them unconditionally and forgive yourself. This emotionally energy is why you create the hell that you do in your life. It is why you don’t see the world as heavenly the way your heart experiences it. Just imagine how incredibly light you will feel when you no longer carry with you all your wounds and strong limited emotions. All that limited emotional baggage that always peeks its head out just as you think things are going good. You can have that unconditionality, that joy and lightness in your life, everyone can, it just requires that you do the work.

Unconditionality really means complete acceptance. When you look at it, it seems so obvious, unconditionality = no conditions = acceptance. For most of us, we can’t get past our judgements, expectations, beliefs, ideas, the lies about our world and ourselves, our worth or belief in a lack thereof, and all of our other wounds that say “NO! Things MUST be different for me to accept myself and be happy!” Every wound, lie, belief, expectation, and judgement sets us up to put conditions on everything in our world, most importantly on ourselves. Through acceptance and forgiveness of ourselves and our wounds, we gain the joy and unconditional life we all desire.
