How Much Forgiveness Is Enough?

Forgiveness of the memories in our cells! Aingeal Rose & Ahonu
Our memories are in our cells.

The Belief In Forgiveness

After that book was written, I believed and felt I had gone through a huge forgiveness exercise. It was a big cleansing, and Aingeal Rose reminded us all through the years of how DNA is composed of history, of how our memories are history. So, in our DNA, in our very cells, in our very makeup, is the memory of what happened before, and that is where forgiveness must reach to be effective. Why am I bringing this up? Because if it’s all about forgiveness…

You have to really want to release the belief in guilt, because as long as you believe in guilt, guilt will always demand punishment, on some level.

When I’ve had arguments, I always hear Jesus say, you could choose peace instead. Many times in those moments, I realize I don’t want to. I don’t want to choose peace. Then I hear Jesus say to me, you want him/her to be guilty, right?

Do I Really Want Forgiveness?

There are many of us who don’t want forgiveness because there’s something in the drama that we like, and we want, and there’s something about conflict that makes us feel, I don’t know, a victim, or special. So you’ve got this whole argument of, this is what makes me feel alive, I’m in conflict, I’m in pain, I’m suffering because of guilt but I prefer that to forgiveness, to living in peace. So, when you say, do you really want to give up the guilt? A lot of times we don’t.
