Spirituality from Daily Word: “Forgive” (Espiritualidad de la Palabra Diaria: “Perdonar”)



As I forgive myself, I can forgive others.

The words I say and choices I make can sometimes hurt others, and I may feel regret for something I’ve said or done. Forgiving others is one of the keys to living free. Before I can truly forgive anyone else, however, I must first be willing to forgive myself. At my core, I am divine. On the outside, I am a human being who can make mistakes and fall short of my best.

I take time to reflect on what happened and then pause, inhaling a deep, cleansing breath. Moving from human judgment into the space of divine love, I embrace the lesson available to me. This is a moment of discovery—an opportunity to find compassion for myself and others. I make amends, knowing that at the core of forgiveness is mercy, love, and grace.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.—Matthew 5:7

Al perdonarme, puedo perdonar a los demás.

A veces, las palabras que digo y las decisiones que tomo pueden herir a los demás y hacerme sentir arrepentido. Perdonar es esencial para vivir libremente. Antes de poder perdonar a alguien, primero tengo que estar dispuesto a perdonarme a mí mismo. En lo externo, soy un ser humano que puede cometer errores.

Tomo tiempo para reflexionar acerca de lo que sucedió y hago una pausa, respirando profundamente. Al cambiar del juicio humano a un espacio de amor divino, acepto la lección disponible para mí. Éste es un momento de descubrimiento —una oportunidad para demostrar compasión para los demás y para mí. Hago enmiendas, sabiendo que el centro del perdón es la misericordia, el amor y la gracia.

Bienaventurados los misericordiosos, porque ellos serán tratados con misericordia.—Mateo 5:7

    1. This is so true! Resentment will fester and grow, and will take over the mind and body, and the only ones affected are ourselves if we keep that negativity inside. Each day we should practice forgiveness and let go.
      Big hugs back to you, Amira ❤
