Tag: Forgiveness

Flowers

Brought you flowers –
Smelling sweetly
They encourage
To forgive.

Will you bother?
It’s not easy –
I have not much
Left to give.

I am asking
For your guidance –
How can I get
Through to you?

Realize that
What we’re having
Others had – yes,
But a few.

Skepticism that
You have nurtured
Does not help to
See the truth.

All mistakes are
Nonexistent –
I am hoping
For a truce.

Maybe given
Little time to
See all things in
Proper light,

We will manage
To restore us –
Gently loving
Is our right.

Flowers dying –
Is all hopeless?
Do we fade just
As they do?

What a nonsense!
We’re not bodies –
Love makes one of
What was two.

Moribund

Still standing – moribund,
Pretending that I found
What lies beyond the death,
I draw my final breath.

A body strives to live,
My soul – but to forgive.
Beyond the veil declined
Whole world – but not my mind.

It still perceives the light
And keeps the same old fight.
The lessons still unlearned –
I’m hurled to earth – returned.

Again – I start anew!
It is as if I knew:
The figures in the dream
Are me – or only seem?

The Light

The light
Which shines in me
With holy might –
I let it be,
And recognize –
The light is me.

The peace
Such holy thought
Which we dismiss
When we are caught
In ego’s mind –
What has it brought? –

The pain.
Abandoned soul
Seems to be stained
With only goal –
Remembering
Its holy role.

Forgive
And you will see
How what you give
Allows your peace to be
And shine inside,
Cleansing your sight.

The light
Is but your own,
Is God’s own might
In which you’re known.
Awake from sin –
Look deep within!

Gestas

“I look at me – I see but flesh –
Not rotting yet, but death is near…
When thoughts and dreams no longer clash
I see myself unsettling clear –

To death succumbed, I’m lost in dark
Yet realizing – I still live!
The body’s gone, but there’s a spark
Expressing one thought – to forgive.

A thought, which hardly had occurred
When I perceived with body’s eyes
Forgiveness seemed to be absurd
Replaced with hate through worldly lies.

When thoughts so dark ruled over me,
And light was seen in hues of blood,
I was determined to break free,
Tied by my thoughts – all was for naught.

Sick, sluttish thoughts – I’ve sold my soul!
Pimped my pure Self to hellish fiends –
Through my own sins they have control
The wicked rulers of my dreams!

A nightmare, living hell this is!
Why did I choose to dream such rot?
Why did I trade my precious peace,
Abandoning the only God?

The lessons harsh – I chose myself,
When I have fallen deep asleep
Into the world of seeming hell,
Into abyss of pain so deep”.

Time never stops until it does,
The wicked cycle still goes on –
A body rotting on the cross
Still prays for dreams to be undone.

Sonnets of Love: Forgiveness

No matter what you do or what you think,
No matter what life seems to put you through
Don’t ever let the guilt emerge – forgive.
Forgiveness is your savior on the brink
Of hate, your only hope on path so true,
Which brings you home where peacefully you live.

Sonnets of Love – 22 (The Problem)

The problem, you’ve created in your mind,
Is there still, waiting to be forgiven –
Don’t try to solve it in this world.
Where problem is, solution you will find,
The peace you seek, you have been given,
Solution is your Love, allow it to unfold.

Ignorance

This worthless life of yours, with all pretense,
With grandiosity you want them to respect,
Does not allow you being not so tense,
Any advice you’re offered, you reject,
Being unhappy, yet so blind, you think
You know the truth, when you are on the brink,

Of facing all your castles in the air
Break down, and taking with them seeming life,
And with it taking that for which you care.
You’ve always lived on the edge of the knife,
Nothing you’ve built, achieved can ever last,
You’re careless, yet this “life” ends very fast.

You walk this world with ignorance immense,
And being blind, it is the truth you do neglect,
So all you’ve done does not make any sense,
The meaning you are trying to project,
Will not remind you of the truth,
Each thing and every thought you but misuse.

And you continue being just a fool,
Believing in this “life” you have achieved a lot,
Being so blind you pray for ego’s rule,
Your specialness – it seems so highly sought,
That you forget of what you are,
This road leads you from truth so far.

Yet God smiles gently, bathing you in love,
That you have never sinned – He knows,
To Him, your willingness to see’s enough,
Your will for happiness so clearly shows –
Pure love is what you are, always will be,
He does not doubt, that soon you’ll clearly see.

The words I say come not from me,
And so we both can hear them deep inside,
Please recognize the truth and pray with me:
“My Friend, I want you always by my side,
With You I want in love to bathe,
Please help me strengthen up my faith,

Please help me see as through Your eyes,
I’ve been mistaken, but not anymore,
All life of mine, I’ve followed ego’s lies,
But not so now – that was so long before.
I’ve been a fool, knew not what I have done,
I have abandoned God, from Heaven I was gone”.

The Choice

The choice you make – to love or hate,
Your choice – forgiving brother,
Or still condemning him, choosing his fate,
The choice – living apart from one another,
Or being one with God – in God,
Being pure, unchanged and awed.

You choose your fate each second of each day,
And often being blind of ones you’ve made,
You choose to hate, unconscious how it may
Cause all the love inside of you to fade.
Each moment and each day you choose
To win against your ego – or to lose.

The choice – how beautiful it is,
That we are blessed to have a choice,
Our fate is in our hands, and so is peace,
As we decide to hear ego’s, or God’s voice –
We choose to suffer, judge and hate,
Or peaceful Love – which is our final fate.

Remembering to Live

We’re lost in our erratic thoughts
And seeing them as real,
We truly feel,
As if the pain and suffering
We go through each and every day,
At any point may
Show us where happiness is
And how to find our perfect peace…

The memory of God
To the disturbed mind –
Comes not.
The one who tries to find
The Truth in any thing,
Love alongside hate,
If pleasure is in separation seen
This one’s determined to dream.

Remembering to live –
We’ve managed to forget
How to forgive
And see,
That it’s not what we get,
But what we give.
How we forgive is showing clearly
Our desire for war or peace,
And what do we hold dearly –
The ego’s hate or God’s perfect bliss.

We’ve Managed to Forget

I lay beside you every day
And, isn’t it a shame, sometimes I may
Not recognize in you the Light of Love,
I try to see it, but I haven’t learned enough –
Not yet – Yes, I still forget.

And I still judge the things you do,
As If not knowing that,
I’m judging me – not you.
These are mistakes I make, when I forget.

And all the things we want so much to get?
Somehow we’ve managed to forget:
Forget to see beyond the dream,
Forget that there were never any sin,
Forget remembering to forgive,
To realize its our thoughts we give,
That shape the picture on the wall –
Illusionary wall we’re trying to crawl.

And every time we seem to hate?
We’ve managed to forget our state,
The way we truly are,
In which we’re One – not near, nor far.

Yes, it’s difficult not to forget,
But much more so when you need to get:
The things, the fame,
Emotions, but lack of shame,
The peace in you, along your Brother’s sin,
Heaven on Earth, in which not everyone is in.

Who’s made the rules how it’s supposed to be?
If it’s pure Love ‘tween you and me,
It really all it takes to bring us home,
With Love I testify – I’m not alone.
In it – we’re one, we’re joined again,
In Love we’re perfectly sustained.

 

Sin

What is “sin” but an error you seemed to make but never did? Yet, by listening to the ego, you started thinking sin is real and you forgot that Son of God is perfect like his Father.

From childhood we’ve been taught that some things are “good” and some are “bad”. And when you do this or that – you sin, and reinforce belief of dream you’re in. Then, you experience guilt for the imagined sin you seemed to have committed.

Sin is not possible without judgement, because it is only kept intact in you as long as you see it in your Brother. How would you perceive of something, unless you would constantly maintain it real by finding it all around you?

And yet it is so easy to let go of all this nonsense. Regard your Brother as yourself – as One Son of God, forever perfect and pure. Do not try to find His fault, for you will never forgive something that you made real. Just realize that there is not a single sinner in the whole world, and no one’s guilty. There is no hate, nor anger. If it is not in anyone, it’s not in You.

Three Stages of Forgivness

Conditional Forgiveness

At this stage there is no forgiveness at all – there is only judgement. You constantly judge your Brothers and then you “forgive” them – given they follow your conditions.

We could also call this “ego forgiveness”. The ego feels powerful if it can look down on a Brother and “forgive” him, with understanding that he will soon sin again, be condemned, and guilt will force him to return for more.

Forgetful Forgiveness

You realize that temporal forgiveness is not real – and when conditions are given, you can be sure enough they will be broken. So you try to truly let go of judging your Brother, but you forget.

This is a period of increasing conflict, because you do not want to follow ego’s path no more, but you still do. You turn between two opposites, and don’t accept just yet that one of them is not real.

This is an important stage and you will persevere. You’ll make mistakes, but every time you’ll choose again. And very soon the ego won’t be something you’ll ever look upon again.

True Forgiveness

True Forgiveness is, simply, lack of judgement. You cannot condemn a Brother and then truly forgive him. You grant True Forgiveness to each one through overlooking ego. You’ll see nothing but Light of God and there will be nothing you could judge.

You realized that rather than trying to be “right”, following the path of the ego, you’d rather have peace.

Forgiveness

To any Brother in the world you can extend your will – your love or hate.

You can condemn a brother, judge him for this or that, and it will make you burn with anger. You know you’re right, your anger’s justified. The condemnation is your will, if you identify with ego.

Or, you can Forgive. Forgiveness is extension of Love, which is beyond this world.

“How can you forgive when clearly he has sinned!?” – cries ego. And yet, true Forgiveness is gifted not for the repentance of the sin. Only the ego makes you ask for a condition before you can forgive.

True Forgiveness comes not on a condition, but from recognition – that sin is an illusion you project. Your Brother’s never sinned, and when you grant him that, how anything but Love be felt inside you for him?

Conflict

The conflict is not possible in God, but it is guaranteed when following the ego. The Voice of Love that calls you home is ever present, but rarely heard. So it is only the extent to which you listen to the other, little voice of ego, that makes the conflict real for you.

Ego knows not of God, and God knows not of ego. Is it any surprise that when you choose to listen to the little voice, the conflict is so soon to follow? Is it what you really want?

One voice is calling you to judge, the other to forgive. You cannot listen to them both, not at the same time. When ego pulls you to the past, to all the grievances you can’t let go of, or when it promises the future, it teaches you to judge.

And only in the now you hear eternal Voice of God.
