Sting said that love is stronger than justice.  Of course, we know that Love is more powerful than anything.  But if you feel you have been wronged and are looking for justice or a pound of flesh, so to speak, you may be looking for the wrong thing.  Just imagine what would happen if you sought love instead.  Even better, imagine what would happen if you gave love instead of seeking it.  That might require a bit of forgiveness.  But if you begin by forgiving yourself for all the things you may have done that may have hurt someone else, you will probably find it much easier to forgive another for what was done that is not okay with you. Remember that hurt, anger or resentment are awfully heavy crosses to carry.  So today let’s put down our crosses.  Forgiveness lightens our journey.

Enjoy your day!
