"The act of forgiveness frees you from the old ties that bind you to the past events, and past judgements about yourself and others. The practice of forgiveness begins with Self-forgiveness. Self-forgiveness opens the doors to discernment and compassion through which you are able to 'see' the inter-play of relationships and agreements between you and others. You come to 'know' that there is nothing to forgive. This that you have experienced is the seeding ground that prepares you for your Soul's journey, and these others were the gardeners who broke the ground, plowed the furrows of belief and sown the seeds of experience. There will be a day in your healing that you will look back and thank them for having accepted such a challenge and such a commission that sent them along their Path, and you along yours."
