This Thursday we will return to our exploration around forgiveness. We’ll be looking at what keeps us from forgiveness through the lens of the Three Characteristics. My intention is to touch into the real liberating quality of the Three Characteristics around our hurts, wrongdoings, unfair situations from ourselves and others.
When we allow life to unfold naturally we become empowered with choice rather than weakened by reactivity. This allowing quality comes from a practice of recognizing when we are pushing against the Three Characteristics and learning to open to both the harm done and our struggle against it.
Learning to just be still with difficulty without judgment and blame is hard but oh so rewarding. Little by little that stillness creates enough space for us to deconditions our habitual reactivity, freeing us up to choose how we will respond.
We’ll talk more Thursday…
