Forgiveness A Pivotal Step on the Ladder of Ascension





by Contemporary Mystic, Lori Daniel Falk

A long, long time ago Alexander Pope told us, “To err is human; to forgive, divine.” Today, as we approach 2012, and the ascension process is upon us, forgiving for divinity takes on a whole new meaning. To even begin to reach enlightenment one must not just realize, but accept the fact that everything is, and always will be, in divine order. With that in mind, it is of paramount importance that we look at what seems to be bad, or wrong, or hurtful . . . all those feelings of unpleasantness . . . and find the gift that lies within them. You’ll know you are truly in touch with your “God-self” when you have the ability to look adversity in the face and lovingly embrace it.

To err is human; to forgive, divine.

The importance of emotional healing has never been more important than it is at this time on our planet.  Recent studies have shown that we create in the emotional field prior to manifesting in the physical field. We get distraught over situations, or we get stressed over things, thereby creating abhorrent thought forms, that can create illness, sometimes even serious or fatal illness. Not only are negative emotions the root cause of almost every disease; the anger, fear, unworthiness and other emotions that go along with them, get buried in the body at a cellular level. Over time these adverse emotions weaken the physical body creating everything from stiffness, aches, and pains to more serious conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

As we move further along the ascension process the need to release negative emotional patterns and beliefs becomes more and more vital. As the planet continues to vibrate at a higher and higher frequency … and we along with it … carrying around limiting beliefs and feelings of resentment becomes quite burdensome. These lower vibrational frequencies actually bog us down, making it uncomfortable to exist in the new “higher playing field.”

So what do we do about all of this? Well, perhaps the simplest thing would be to shift our paradigm, to look at life through a different lens. As humans our ego-selves tend to judge things as right or wrong, good or bad, appropriate or inappropriate; when in reality … it’s all good. Right about now, I know you are thinking yeah right, easy for you to say!?! Well actually it’s not, often I’d like to say the same thing; yet what I know for sure is this … that old way of thinking no longer serves us.

There’s a wonderful children’s book written by Neale Donald Walsch that describes this concept well. It’s called, The Little Soul and the Sun: A Children’s Parable Adapted from Conversations With God. If you haven’t read it yet, I encourage you to do so … soon. The characters in this delightful story beautifully describe how we choose the lessons or skills we’d like to learn in a particular lifetime prior to incarnating on this planet. While we’re going about setting our goals if you will, other souls are lining up and volunteering to be our parents, loved ones and friends; and promising to help us co-create the incidences in life that will all assist us in achieving the mission we are hoping to accomplish.

Compassion, according to Webster’s, is a profound human emotion prompted by the pain of others.

Let’s look at the gift of compassion for example. Compassion, according to Webster’s, is a profound human emotion prompted by the pain of others. More vigorous than empathy, the feeling commonly gives rise to an active desire to alleviate another’s suffering. So let’s say you decided that you wanted to not just learn about compassion, but to really understand it, to actually embrace it. To accomplish this one of your “soul family” members might agree to suffer through something unusually distressing that you would actually be witness to, giving you an opportunity to feel first hand what “compassion” is truly all about.

Or let’s say you decided you wanted to learn about forgiveness; perhaps you would need to encounter someone that would truly wrong you. And to have it really impact you at a deep level, perhaps it would need to be induced by someone of importance and/or significance in your life. Perhaps you would need to be so infuriated by it all that you could hardly stand it. And yet, because underneath it all, you truly love this person who has in some way harmed you beyond belief, you would need to find a way to forgive them. To continue loving them you would need to let go of all anger, resentment, and indignation. You would need to know at the core of your soul that they had simply offered you the opportunity you had long been asking for … the opportunity to learn to love unconditionally in the face of adversity … put simply, a true chance to forgive.

“Without forgiveness life is governed … by an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.” – Robert Assaglioli

As Robert Assaglioli has said, “Without forgiveness life is governed … by an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.” With that in mind, when “adversity” shows up in your life, rather than playing the victim role and attacking the person or source of your anger, would it not be better to simply ask, “Why is this showing up? What can I learn from this?” By asking these questions, we put ourselves in the role of the observer. We look at the situation objectively and try to ascertain what the true gift is that lays within the confines of this uncomfortable circumstance.

In finding this gift, we can fully and completely love not only ourselves, but those who only seemed to have done us wrong. At this level of consciousness our frequency automatically increases, elevating us into higher and higher domains of existence; making ascension seem like an easy game.
