Giving myself the moment to pause over a message that was sent to me today.
So many times it is said, “Life is too short to…(fill in the blank)”. But in truth, it is more like this – “Life is too long!” Because life is too long to be harboring ill wishes or constantly speaking in judgment of others. Or walking around victimized by the circumstances and situations we find ourselves in.
Years ago I began using the “A Course in Miracles” workbook to help me take control of my self defeating, self sabotaging, fearful thoughts and there is not a day that goes by that I do not rely on the guidance and sanity from that workbook.
ACIM speaks of forgiveness as a simple practice of self responsibility rather than a lofty idea obtained only through great emotional and physical trials and long years of sitting in deep contemplation to bring about the daily walk of it.
Forgiveness is essential to our health and well being. Without it, we will be miserable. Without it, means living a slow death for our humanity. It may take a long time to discover this is true, hence my little coined phrase that actually, “Life is too long to do this!”
Forgiveness is one of the greatest ‘cure alls’ available to every single individual on this planet.
“Every situation, properly perceived, becomes an opportunity to heal.” ACIM
Here is the little message sent to me today…enjoy!
Honesty and forgiveness is a permanent, full time occupation. It’s best to show up for work every day, all day. Including week-ends, holidays, and in good and bad weather. There’s no regular pay or over-time pay. You simply reap what you sow.
You can not be laid off, suspended or fired for any reason, but you can quit. You can call in sick, pretend you’re going to a funeral, including your own, deny or forget your responsibility, have a crappy attitude, bitch and complain endlessly, or go to another employer. Your real joyful job will always be waiting, safe and protected.
It’s a happy beautiful forgiving business…
“I am not the victim of the world I see.”
