Ask Forgiveness

Take time to be humble and to ask for forgiveness for any offenses you may have caused to others and then release them, do not dwell on them, but learn from them. Be quick to forgive any hurt others may have caused you. Not just in words but in your heart and then embrace the healing forgiveness brings.

Don't dwell on petty issues from the past. They can only live on if we give them the power. For the past is gone, it cannot harm us. We can choose to change our mind and how we perceive things. We can choose to let go of the past and be joyful in the present.

We can choose to look at others in a different light. We are all but God's children doing the best that we can with the information we have at the time. We can choose to do better, to become more spiritual, and to let the Divine be the shining light in our life, and to see that same Divine presence in all whom we encounter.

We can ask for Divine help in resolving differences instead of carrying resentments within that are often creations of our own imagination, blown out of proportion. We feed the seed of discord when we do not shed the light of love on it.

Love reveals the truth we were too blinded by our own fears to see. To be in harmony is to be at peace. Never make preconceptions. Never be quick to make a judgment.

Try to see both sides of every issue. Remember to laugh at your own mistakes and to be forgiving of yourself. Be willing to make a fresh start.

Each day is a new beginning. It is "the present" as it is a gift from God. It is a new page, unwritten. A fresh dawn full of endless possibilities. Welcome it with joy and anticipation and end it with gratitude for all its many blessings.
