[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Drop the sense of separation

FORGIVENESS MEANS . . . accepting what is or what has been and becoming
willing to see it differently. You cannot un-hear what you have heard or
un-see what you have seen. What you can do is stop believing that what
occurred has somehow left you broken, damaged and wounded. Forgiveness
results in a shift in your perception and yourself and . . .everyone else.
For this reason, forgiveness is an absolutely essential step toward your
personal growth, healing and evolution. YOU MUST DO THE WORK! Iyanla

I've learnt that we are all connected, one of my best and favorite teachers
always says " the only thing that needs to be healed is our sense of
separation" and I never really understood that until she broke it down very
simply to say , you are connected to each and every person and living
creature on the planet whether you want to admit it or accept it. And
therein lies the laws of karma, an eye for an eye, the collective
responsibility and pain etc. Do not for one minute believe that things that
are happening around you do not affect you or that treating someone like a
doormat, not forgiving, holding on to grudges etc will pass you by, we are
all connected! And vice verse, you are happy and living from your highest
self this will transfer and translate into the lives around you and that is
why it is important to have unconditional self love!

In Brasso Seco yesterday, the community rallied together and gave me so
much lessons and inspiration that I remembered the lesson

Brasso Seco is a rural community on the North Coast of Trinidad, beautiful!
Rivers, rain forests, beaches, quiet no fuss! They were ri=rocked over the
past couple of weeks by the brutal murder and kidnapping of an entire
family including a baby 9 months old who was killed! The villages came
together in a healing circle with practical solutions which in all my
travels I have never seen! What a humbling experience for me and I give
thanks that they invited me to be a part of this!

We are all connected! Live that!

Peace!!!
