#30DaysUP: forgiveness

By January 14, 2015April 28th, 2023#30DaysUP, #30DaysUP Private

day 6…
we all can be stank from time to time. regular meditation doesn’t erase normal human emotions from your actions but it does offer choices + your ability to chose has more intent than the typical reaction we so often subject ourselves + others to.

I meditated… Felt good… Had a frustrating interaction, borne out of deep fear, + I vomited a bit of rage.

In it all, I chose. Even in choice, I felt so much remorse. Instantaneous remorse.

I walked away. Deep breaths. And then I went back + pleaded for forgiveness. For the hurt I caused to mtg loved one + to myself.

My practice gives me something I would not have otherwise… to be in the present, be accountable for my actions, without dwelling on any past transgressions as a way to justify my own bad behavior, + give voice to my wrongdoing + allow forgiveness to be given.

This is love in action.
