Love is neither given nor taken,

but rather discovered and allowed.

You can offer a much love

as the ocean to another,

but they will only receive

the amount they feel they deserve.

Forgiveness is like love.

Forgiveness is not given nor taken,

But rather discovered and allowed.

We may acknowledge

that Christ or the Creator

has graced us with forgiveness.

But in truth Creator and Christ,

working hand in hand,

don’t need to forgive us

for they never judged

the act in the first place,

They just love.

We term that grace.

It is us, our own soul

that must discover,

in a way that has validity for us,

that we deserve forgiveness,

whether for major disasters

or small unkindness’s.

It is our subconscious,

our inner child,

our own soul that must

allow the forgiveness,

for it to take root and blossom

into greater love of self,

which is loving Creator.

Wouldn’t it be wondrous

if we knew,

that the eye through God sees me

is the eye through which I see God

and likewise

the forgiveness with which

God/Christ/Creator sees us

is the same forgiveness with which

we see ourselves,

and therefore the Creator within?
