Some of my hurts occurred at a young and tender age, when there seemed to be no healing granted; when the best I could do then was retreat and lick my wounds alone.
Since that time so long ago, I have also seen much vindication. This ability to witness what I have called “the coming around of the going around,” hasn’t been only in seeing karmic issues resolved for little slights, but for big wounds as well. But what of forgiveness?
An-eye-for-an-eye-for-an-eye-for-an-eye … ends in making everybody blind ~ Louis Fischer, The Life of Mahatma Gandhi
Only recently, I have come to know the ‘Big Picture’ in the powerful prayer, “forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those that trespass against us”. In history, the eye-for-an-eye mentality has been so pervasive for so long that many consider it the way life works. The carnage that has been heaped on countries in the form of genocide, and the bloody downfall of mighty civilizations can be attributed to this mentality.
The words of Gandhi, who said “an eye for an eye makes us all blind” rings true, not only in the retributions of war, but also in our personal lives. It is a temptation to guard against to allow ourselves any vindication for wrongs done to us – even in our thoughts. Spiritual teachings are fairly explicit: forgive others, because we have all been on both sides of the trespassing fence.
It is high time to attempt to mend that fence. Sometimes we aren’t even aware of someone we have trespassed against. As we become more conscious, individually and culturally, we will awaken to the essence of the teachings of our ascended masters, and learn to transcend the old paradigms. We are solely and deeply in need of bridging the gap into the new paradigm of the higher frequency vibrations of love, peace and understanding.
