Find a comfortable place where you can be focused, and let's begin. Breathe in slowly, deeply through your nose. Feel the air flow into you. Hold that breath for a few seconds. Then, exhale through your mouth. Now, breathe in an easy, relaxed way, noticing the sensations in your mouth and nose with each breath. Let your shoulders relax. Your eyes relax. Close them if you like. Anybody can find peace, just like anybody can be hurt. Picture a time when someone hurt you. Say out loud or in your mind what that person did. Do you remember how it felt? What emotions can you remember feeling then? Say those emotions to yourself. Maybe this happened a while ago. Have your emotions changed? What are those emotions now? Say them to yourself. Forgiving someone does not change what they did. It does not change the rightness or wrongness of what they did. It only changes the way you feel in your own heart. Do you want to begin to forgive this person? If you do, say so to yourself. Forgiveness is not automatic. It is not passive. It requires focus and spiritual energy, and often, it takes time, but you can begin now. Let's reach out to God. In your own words, ask God for the energy, for the love to begin feeling forgiveness. Now, let's listen quietly to our spiritual center. Let's take a few more breaths, feeling grounded in the present, in the peace of God. Nice job.
