First On Yourself

How do we forgive others? First, we practice on ourselves. Think of something that you have thought of before and for which you have condemned yourself. After you feel that self judgment, ask for God's help so that the counterpart to that judgment, the forgiveness and Love that is contained within you, can come to the surface. It is inaccurate to say that this forgiveness and Love is contained within you --- it is who you are, but it may feel like only a small part of you. Allow that forgiveness and Love to cleanse the judgment --- there is no conquering, as this is not a contest. When we place our focus on what we are, the forgiveness and Love, everything false (the judgment) falls away. Remember, this feeling of forgiveness. Your memory and ability to pull it up again is contained in the feeling, not the thought. The more you work with this and continue to bring it up, the greater the presence will be for you. Eventually, no self judgment will remain.
