Why is it so difficult to forgive? Because the Ego is wounded. It wants to be right and for others to be wrong. But there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’. Both parties are simply on either end of the one line of truth, and just like the Tug of War rope, you can only be victorious by bringing the other down. There is another way! What would happen if you just let go of the rope? Agree to disagree and end the pointless tussling to and fro.
Take me and shape me in your image, Lord.
Carry me and mould me

Gossamer wings flit to and fro
And squeals of delight permeate the site:
This sacred sphere, this magical sight
The woods are alive with Faeries tonight!

Imagine what the world would be like (and the effect on us emotionally, and subsequently, physically) if everything on Earth was black, white or grey! I’ve started to read up on colour therapy online and how wearing certain colours can positively affect your emotions and mood. It may be worthwhile trying out different colours each day to see what effect they have on you personally. If anyone has tried this already, I’d love to hear your comments. Continue reading
