As I wrap up every year, I choose a song that embodies the main lesson I learned... The key that god/creator/source has been helping me to craft throughout the year that unlocks the depths of my potential.
This year is "Forgive" by Trevor Hall.
To all of those whom I perceived hurt from up to this moment:
I release you.
You have no debt to me.
For it is you, who have betrayed and wounded me, that I have learned from most. You, who have made the deepest wounds in my heart, encouraged me to keep looking for the all encompassing type of love that only is found within. You opened up the crevices in my soul that otherwise would have remained closed and hidden, filled with demons, shadows, and dark angels.
Broken open I am able to heal myself from intergenerational wounding and trauma. I am able to heal my family line. I am able to find a sense of compassion, love, and acceptance of self that only comes from being able to love the parts of self that are pitiful, shameful, needy, and helpless.
I am forever grateful that I can now look in the mirror from a place of love.
It is because you left that I have room for the love that currently pervades my life.
I love the beauty I found in the pain.
I am grateful for you.
I release you.
I release me.
Forgive everything that has ever happened
Life is everything we can imagine
Laid out in patterns of pain and passion
You cannot control it so keep your compassion
There are no accidents
And there are no factions
There is no "us" and "them"
Nothing to borrow or lend
No enemy or friend
And only forgiveness can make that happen
