You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well.”
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that
the prisoner was you.”
Lewis B. Smedes
What words come to you when you look at this collage ?
What wisdom is in this image?
I was going to call it the fire breather.
To me it is how to deal with words that are thoughtlessly spit out at you.
I find the best way to deal with them my self is to no longer give them the power, I will no longer take them personally. I know words hurt. I gave them that power in the past. But now, I will no longer allow them to have any negative power. I now chose to forgive.
I do deeply feel words. I love to communicate. But I no longer wish to feel sad. I wish to give all the power of words to be taken in a positive way.
I will keep telling my self "there is no good or bad,they are intertwined like a rope, there is only our judgment of what is good or bad.
