We are all subject to the forces of division. It is built into our language and the ways in which we choose to communicate. Our cultures trick us into believing these are the rules we must live by in order to "survive", when really it seems it only speeds up that "death march". Our combined souls, the universal language of love, the infinite source of power and energy. Forgiveness is showing up. Forgiveness is the first act toward change. Forgiveness is the absolution of fear and daily, minute by minute, we practice. We resist these draining energies of fear through forgiveness, not as an act of propping up the illusion of division, but as an attempt to clear the path toward love.
