Black Belt in Inner Peace #10

Black Belt in Inner Peace contains short journal entries I have kept and continue to add to, as I go for a black belt in inner peace by endeavoring to move through each busy and sometimes stressful day with greater grace and ease.

Number 10: Freedom through forgiveness

There is an old grievance that I haven’t completely forgiven, and this morning it raised its angry head once again. Once more I had to recognize that the pain of not forgiving punishes me, not the other person, so I stopped what I was doing, practiced acknowledging the light in this person and not the lampshade that my anger has made of his mistake.  Then I listened to Mozart’s piano concerto #21 on my iPhone and let it all go.
