I have something here for you…something not just for you, but for us all, a big topic of late, somehow. It keeps surfacing in my life, various places, people, texts, circumstances. I haven’t got it down to a science, yet, no…but the progress I am ‘feeling’, feels GOOD!
I think of us all and how important it is to do this…for our own health, if not for that of the entire planet.
Feel better, pps!! Try this ‘remedy’! Why not? Can’t hurt. Let’s do it, as best we’re able. Likely, as self-preservationists at heart, we find it a tough pill to swallow, though. Most of us might choke it back up, no doubt. I feel it needs to be the first prescription applied to all that ails us. Jus’ sayin’. Only my opinion, that’s all. However, there just might be some support for this out there!! See below, for one. 😉
Feel free to share (the love).
Please DO, in fact! 💞
Seen on FB: verbatim (had to throw in a bit of Latin there! 😁)…
Spectacular message of Pope Francis.
” there is no perfect family. We don’t have perfect parents, we are not perfect, we don’t get married with a perfect person nor do we have perfect kids. We have complaints of each other. We were disappointed to each other. Therefore, there is no healthy marriage or healthy family without the exercise of forgiveness. Forgiveness is vital to our emotional health and spiritual survival. Without forgiveness the family becomes a theatre of conflict and a bastion of grievances. Without forgiveness the family gets sick. Forgiveness is the sterilization of the soul, the cleaning of the mind and the liberation of the heart. Who does not forgive has no peace of soul nor communion with God. The pain is a poison that intoxicates and kills. Save a wound of the heart is a self-destructive gesture. It is autophagy. Who does not forgive sickens physically, emotionally and spiritually. That’s why the family has to be a place of life and not of death; territory of healing and not of disease; stage of forgiveness and not of guilt. Forgiveness brings joy where sorrow produced pain; and healing, where pain caused disease.”

We know all this already, but the world needs a reminder from a notable, I think. Here it is! Like him, his association or not! Science upholds this ‘belief’.
Sharing it with my world, with love, not criticism, judgment or self-righteousness. Wherever you’re at, however you’re feeling, forgive and love and be grateful. It has to be the only way to peace in this Life. So says I. For me, for sure.
