THE LIGHT WORKER'S MANUAL - AN UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT
|Forgiveness is an essential element in the evolution of consciousness. We, as humans have been taught to forgive since early childhood, from our parents, our teachers, our religious leaders, all have admonished us to forgive and to forget hurtful incidents in order to heal. Forgetting the past is impossible if we have experienced difficult or abusive circumstances at the hands of others. Forgiving is next to impossible. We cannot forget the past but there is a different way of looking at forgiveness.
Now that we are aware that each individual’s path has been chosen by our soul to experience expansion of consciousness and these experiences are lessons along the way to enlightenment. There is, of course free will but if we look at certain examples such as addiction that affect not only the addicted individual but almost everyone they have a relationship with, it is clear that many people are affected by one person’s addictive habits. The question then is how to forgive the addicted individual for the hurt they have caused us.
When we look at the addiction from the standpoint of a lesson to be learned by the addicted person, and the lessons to be learned by those who are affected by the addiction, we can see the situation from a more impersonal viewpoint. We cannot change another person’s life path, but we can accept the condition as a lesson to be learned in our own life path. We are not responsible for the actions of another individual. If another person’s actions cause us fear, pain and anger and we allow ourselves to feel fear, pain and anger, our lesson then is how to be in a relationship with an addicted person, or whether or not to stay in a relationship with an addicted person. Free will works for everyone.
Forgiveness is not necessary if we can see the addiction as a lesson. There is no need to forgive an individual that is following their own lessons in the path of their evolution. When we truly understand the cause and effect of karma and truly understand that evolution is a continual series of lessons, then there is no need for us to forgive as we have been taught about forgiveness in the past.
Our lesson is to accept.
My husband died is 1983. He was addicted to alcohol and maybe stronger things. His life lessons during this time were two things. One was to correct his decisions in a past life and the second was to take care of those in need.
He failed in both cases. He could have succeeded within our own family, but he chose not to do so. Seven days after he died of cancer of the stomach from pouring alcohol down in extraordinary amounts, he visited me in a night time vision. He told me how I could get the rest I needed. The next two times he visited me in visions, he came dressed all in black and threatened to kill me. He bore a long sword which he swung at me.
By that time he had realized that he was not going to the ‘light’ but was being held in a dark place. Understand there is no Hell, there is a dark class room where we are given time to learn what we need to know.
The last time he came to me in a vision, he was again very kind and helpful. He asked me if he could live with me; just then two very large ‘guards’ dressed in black took him by the arms and led him away. I have not seen him since, but our daughter still sees him and he is still living in the dark. He has not changed his attitude towards his family. He has not learned his lessons yet.
My way of forgiving him is to realize that he chose his life path and that I had no control over his choices. His family gave him every opportunity to learn his two lessons; it was his choice not to do so.
