We refer you to the Law of Forgiveness in The Book of Universal Spirit Laws and to Forgiveness is the Key to Inner Peace in The Book of Inner Peace.
It is important that you read both of these prior to reading further as this will give you a foundation stone on which to build up to achieve the complete forgiveness explained in this life lesson.
To forgive is not about the other person, people or events that have damaged you. Everything you do you do for yourself.
Whilst you have the damage, whilst you have the insult, whilst you have the physical abuse, whilst you have the emotional abuse, whilst you are not whole caused by the thoughts, words, actions, deeds of another person, people or actual events, whilst you have this poison inside of you, you cannot heal.
It may not be possible for the forgiveness that you seek to be forthcoming now from people or events that have damaged you. There are many reasons that this required apology and forgiveness will not be forthcoming now. The people may not be in the physical any longer. The events cannot be replayed differently as time has passed or the people may not be willing to give you forgiveness.
Does that now mean that you will carry this poison inside you forever? That poison will not be dormant; will not simply remain the same size. That poison will grow with every memory, and every thought, and every word, and every deed, and every action that you do to perpetuate the perception by reminding yourself of how unfairly you have been treated. That poison reacts absorbing every thought, word, deed and action feeding off itself and growing in size inside of you.
And so the question to ask yourself is whilst you have this feeling of needing forgiveness from someone else or something else and you do not let go of this need for forgiveness to make you whole, to make you balanced, to right the wrong whatever you perceive it to be, whilst you have this inability to forgive inside of you, the poison will intensify within your mind and within your body.
And so We get to a place where you have to realize that forgiveness is For Giving yourself the opportunity to heal.
The forgiveness that you seek from others is the For Giveness that you require to give yourself. You require to give to yourself the space to heal the imbalance in your life.
For Giving yourself the unique opportunity to no longer require the poison inside of you.
For Giving yourself the unique opportunity to no longer be concerned in anyway whatsoever about the damage that was inflicted upon you.
For Giving yourself the unique opportunity to cleanse yourself wholly, totally, by stepping away from the perception that you have been damaged by someone else or something else.
The only damage that is being done now, not when it happened in the past, but now, is the damage that you are now inflicting upon yourself by persisting with the memory of the past event that originally caused the damage.
By For Giving yourself the unique opportunity to no longer want to damage yourself, to no longer want to poison yourself with the memory of the perceived damage that has happened, not now, but in the past.
The past no longer exists. All that exists is Now. By persisting with the memory, you are poisoning yourself Now. The other person, people or events are long gone however; you have not put down this issue. You carry it with you still. You are the one who is poisoning yourself Now.
So now is the opportunity, now is the time for For Giving yourself the opportunity to no longer poison yourself.
The ultimate and complete forgiveness you seek is For Giving yourself the opportunity to say No More Abuse! of myself by prolonging the memory of past events, poisoning myself now and allowing the poison to increase with every remembrance of that past event.
The ultimate and complete forgiveness is For Giving yourself the unique opportunity to move on without the memory of the past.
The ultimate and complete forgiveness is For Giving yourself the opportunity to heal yourself, to heal the imbalances of the past and to make yourself whole again.
For Giving you the unique opportunity to now forget and forgive and to count your blessings for what is now present in your life.
For Giving you the opportunity to be thankful and grateful for everything you have now in your life. No longer allowing the past to poison you.
For Giving you the power to heal yourself. That is the ultimate and complete forgiveness!
