Willingness To Let Go

“To forgive is to feel
the compassion, gentleness,
tenderness, and caring
that is always within our hearts,
no matter how the world may seem
at the moment.

Forgiveness is the way to a place
of inner peace and happiness,
the way to our soul.

That place of peace
is always available to us,
always ready to welcome us in.

Through forgiveness,
we receive all that our hearts
could ever want.
We are released from
our fear, anger, and pain
to experience oneness
with each other
and our spiritual Source.


— Gerald G. Jampolsky
Forgiveness:
The Greatest Healer Of All

The Enlightened Life

The real value of reading many authors who may even be writing on similar subject matters is that each of them has an individually unique understanding and thereby an individually unique way of explaining what they have learned. As I was reading a different book from one of my favorite authors, Gerald G. Jampolsky, in Forgiveness: The Greatest Healer Of All, I found this golden nugget of wisdom expressed in a way that I had not before experienced. I hope you injoy his perspective. The first line was enough to inspire me!

“It can be helpful to think of the ego as having a belief system of its own. If we want, we can accept its beliefs or seek other ways of looking at the world. Of course, we have to remember that our egos are part of who we are. The greater our ability to recognize our fearful ego, the freer we are to choose a more loving and peaceful life.”

He goes on to say that the ego’s thought system foundation is fear, guilt, and blame. All of that is fear in different forms. And, if we followed the ego’s thought system as our guiding principles, we would always be in a state of conflict. I might also add another “c” word, contempt. It is easy enough to find these guiding principles at work all around us, and it is a good clue as to what portion of us is in charge.

Dr. Jampolsky also indicates that the ego, based on the information just presented, creates the belief within the ego that nobody deserves forgiveness, including ourselves. He states that our egos are very clever, and based on these beliefs, create all manner of havoc in our lives.

Yet, the good news is in the quote above. “The greater our ability to recognize our fearful ego, the freer we are to choose a more loving and peaceful life.”

We are always in charge. We can allow our ego to rule or be the manager of it instead. Either way, we are in charge and in our choosing.

I choose a more loving and peaceful life by spreading the joy that comes from awareness and the power of choice.

The Vehicle Is Forgiveness

“Whenever I see someone else as guilty,
I am reinforcing my own sense of guilt and unworthiness.
I cannot forgive myself
unless I am willing to forgive others.
It does not matter what I think
anyone has done to me in the past
or what I think I may have done.
Only through forgiveness
can my release from guilt and fear be complete.

Today I choose to let go
of all my past misperceptions
about myself and others.
Instead, I will join with everyone and say:
I see you and myself
only in the light of true forgiveness.”

Love Is Letting Go Of Fear

Forgiveness Ends All Suffering and Loss

“Inner peace can be reached
only when we practice forgiveness.
Forgiveness is the letting go of the past,
and is therefore the means
for correcting our misperceptions.

Through true forgiveness
we can stop the endless recycling of guilt
and look upon ourselves and others with Love.
Forgiveness releases all thoughts
that seem to separate us from each other.
Without the belief in separation,
we can accept our own healing
and extend healing Love to all those around us.
Healing results from the thought of unity.

Forgiveness ends all suffering and loss.”
