This last week, I was given the opportunity to confront some of my deepest fears. At first, I did what we all do when faced with hurt and pain - I got angry, I got emotional, I was blind to reason and logic. But after a time of distancing, there came a quiet space in all the hurt where I could simply sit and be still.
I realised in this space that there was no longer pain and hurt in my heart. There was simply compassion and forgiveness. How can there be hate, when all that's in my heart right now is love? There's no room for anything else.
And now I understand. It is in the forgiving that we finally find our freedom to be.
It is in loving ourselves, trusting and believing in ourselves that we are capable of finding the compassion, love and forgiveness for others that can set us free.
