In any moment, there's something we would benefit from letting go of. Most of us carry around old hurts, and old anger towards ourselves and others. These are things in the past that can't be undone, so holding onto the pain and anger does us no good. The only remedy is forgiveness.
Like grief, there are many layers of forgiveness to get through, especially if the pain of some experience was very long and/or deep. So if you feel old pain, anger, resentment, or guilt coming up, it's time to revisit forgiveness. This will free you to move forwards with more ease and lightness of being - and more freedom and space in your heart for new layers of love and trust.
Below is a Buddhist forgiveness prayer that covers all the bases of forgiveness. I recommend reading it once a day for a full lunar cycle (new moon to new moon or full moon to full moon), ideally before bed, or upon waking in the morning - or whenever you feel like you can take it into your heart.
If I have harmed anyone in any way either knowingly or unknowingly through my own confusions, I ask their forgiveness.
If anyone has harmed me in any way either knowingly or unknowingly through their own confusions, I forgive them.
For all the ways that I harm myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or am unkind to myself through my own confusions, I forgive myself.
And if there is a situation I am not yet ready to forgive, I forgive myself for that.
Wishing you freedom in your heart, open space in your mind, and lightness in your being,
