Please put the attention on the breath.
Have forgiveness in your heart for anything you think you've done wrong.
Forgive yourself for all the past omissions and commissions. They are long
gone. Understand that you were a different person and this one is forgiving
that one that you were. Feel that forgiveness filling you and enveloping you
with a sense of warmth and ease.
Think of your parents. Forgive them for anything you have ever blamed them
for. Understand that they too are different now. Let this forgiveness fill
them, surround them, knowing in your heart that this is your most wonderful
way of togetherness.
Think of your nearest and dearest people . Forgive them for anything that you
think they have done wrong or are doing wrong at this time. Fill them with
your forgiveness. Let them feel that you accept them. Let that forgiveness
fill them. Realizing that this is your expression of love.
Now think of your friends. Forgive them for anything you have disliked about
them. Let your forgiveness reach out to them, so that they can be filled with
it, embraced by it.
Think of the people you know, whoever they might be, and forgive them all for
whatever it is that you have blamed them for, that you have judged them for,
that you have disliked. Let your forgiveness fill their hearts, surround them,
envelope them, be your expression of love for them.
Now think of any special person whom you really need to forgive. Towards whom
you still have resentment, rejection, dislike. Forgive him or her fully.
Remember that everyone has dukkha. Let this forgiveness come from your heart.
Reach out to that person, complete and total.
Think of any one person, or any situation, or any group of people whom you are
condemning, blaming, disliking. Forgive them, completely. Let your forgiveness
be your expression of unconditional love. They may not do the right things.
Human beings have dukkha. And your heart needs the forgiveness in order to
have purity of love.
Have a look again and see whether there's anyone or anything, any where in the
world, towards whom you have blame or condemnation. And forgive the people or
the person, so that there is no separation your heart.
