This book is about revealing to yourself your own power through forgiving the idea that anyone else in your life is stronger than you are. What does acceptance of the gifts of forgiveness mean? From love flows forgiveness. In love forgiveness is received. Who can this book help? This book is for all who are seeking peace in times of crises. Key points: 1. Forgiveness means giving over, not giving up. 2. Forgiveness flows from the awareness of love. 3. Find the love within self so that forgiveness comes naturally. What are the gifts of forgiveness? You will receive a sense of freedom, a sense of personal awareness, a sense of peace and personal power. The power of peace is a part of the revelation that comes from forgiving all the limits that have kept you so occupied in the world that you couldn't understand who you are. The gift is recognizing that you have a right to something better, the right to be free, and the right to live comfortably without asking anyone else's permission. Forgiveness brings about inner illumination - enlightenment. What's the process of forgiveness? First, recognize what is required to be forgiven and understand that you are required to forgive yourself as you forgive others. Thinking, "I have nothing to forgive myself about," is delusional and a denial of your greatest capabilities. Second, be willing to allow yourself to be all right (even if you are wrong). Forgiveness doesn't make you wrong, but the ego makes you believe that if you forgive, it is an admission of giving up. Third, feel the willingness to let the situation go. Finally, realize that you are a container for greater things than you have allowed. Let yourself be filled up with a whole new viewpoint, feeling about the person or situation, and a whole new perspective of how it can work.
