forgiveness

Find the roots

Of disturbing thoughts.

Nourish them

With the nutrients

Of forgiveness

And kindness.

Cultivate the ground

For peace in all directions.

Hurt and fear are twin fires,

We pass through to get to liberation.

Do not ignore them.

But the more you feed them,

The more you burn.

Instead, fill your water buckets with

Forgiveness and Compassion,

Then keep moving forward.

Forgiving yourself and others is like unclogging the vessel that is you, to allow Love to flow uninhibited.

P.S. – Remember to discard the muck.
