Teenagers are suffering. They are killing themselves because somehow they believe that things won't get better and that the only way to end their pain is to end their lives. This is unacceptable and the adults in their lives need to let them know that. This blog is intended to be a letter that you can copy and share with a teen who you love. Give them another option.Read More
I have been angry at someone lately. I will not name names in order to protect the innocent, but there is a person that is part of my life (not by my own choosing, but none the less) that is pissing me off. I am mindful enough to know that this anger I am feeling is having no positive impact on anyone and is actually serving to hurt me because I know better.
I know that the anger is my egos reaction and not my true nature…..and yet there is something that feels powerful and my ego likes it. If someone is wrong then I MUST be right. If I am judging another person then I MUST be better than them.
This is NOT who I am. I believe in the power of love and forgiveness. I believe that each person comes into this world with G-D inside of them and IS love. I believe that it is when people are hurting the most is when they do things to hurt others and that this is when they need love the most.
And yet….my ego still shows its ugly head and its takes all of the love and light in my heart to let it go.
So for today I say, “I’m Sorry, Forgive me. Thank you. I Love You.”
I am sorry for my judgmental and separate ego state. Forgive me for my anger and unkind thoughts. I am only human. Thank you true nature for living inside of each of us; I love you.
The next time your ego mind or anger and judgment take over try healing yourself and saying, “I’m sorry, forgive me. Thank you, I love you.
If you wonder if these words really hold power check out this really cool article about a Doctor who used these words to heal the criminally insane.
