Love to Forgive

"All that is necessary to make this world a better place to live is to love-to love as Christ loved, as Buddha loved." ~Isadora Duncan

Wouldn't it be nice if everyone tried to live by this principle? We would try to see how we could help each other instead of selfishly worrying about our own motives. Life would take on a new meaning as we focused on love for everyone, rather than competition or getting even. We wouldn't hold grudges over past mistakes, rather we would shower the person with unconditional love. Forgiveness would be our creed.

You might be asking yourself how to forgive and love someone who has done you harm. The answer is simple, and it really does work. Pray for that person daily for three to four weeks. Halfway through, your grudge will be gone. Try this yourself and let me know how you do. Remember to pray for that person to have peace, love and happiness, just as you would want for yourself. I'll be anxious to hear from you. I am praying for a certain person, too. Remember "All we need is love," (The Beatles).

This is a beautiful blog... I'm surprised more have not commented. Life is so much more enjoyable when you love! I have had to forgive many in my life and with the forgiveness I have healed. I pray for them, but don't let them waste space in my head. It's my life & I refuse to let the negativity of those sad sad souls to ruffle my feathers.
