    I have to agree more with Violet here on the forgiveness angle. Like her, I believe forgiveness is important for our own health and mindset, but I don't think all evil acts are forgivable.

    The best example I can give is my uncle's adoptive son's life. Right now, he's in his early 20's but mentally he's like a 14 year old b/c his entire life he's suffered from every abuse you can imagine. He's been in foster homes his entire life, abused physically, abused sexually, his father tried to sell him. The abuse he went through was so bad that by age 6 he tried to kill himself. This boy was my uncle's student and he was told that if a loving family did not adopt him within the year he would try to commit suicide again. I'm leaving a lot out of what this boy has gone through, but I hope you get my point. I don't know how anyone who has actually gone through what he has, can forgive every single one of those people. That's A LOT of forgiveness to ask of one person who already is battling for his own life and sanity on a day to day basis. As has already been said, everyone is entitled to their opinion but I find it incredibly difficult to wrap my mind around the thought that ALL evil acts must be forgiven. I think if a person can truly forgive, it's wonderful. Heathy even. I just don't think it's always possible or that all these people are even worthy of forgiveness. To be perfectly honest, I think a lot of these people that participate in such evil acts don't even care if they're forgiven or not. I believe forgiveness is a personal choice and nothing more. It all comes down to our free will.

    And.... I'll stop rambling now. I really didn't mean to babble so much and I'll say no more on the topic.

    As for Heaven... I've had dreams of what I think is Heaven. It looked a lot like it does here. Sunny weather and such a feeling of completeness and HAPPINESS. Being in our true "home."

    ... I think it is possible to forgive everything. Here, in THIS life, I'm not able to do that. But maybe when I'm passed over.

    How I feel for that young man, it was heartbreaking reading your post, but it does highlight certain things which are nigh on impossible to forgive, perhaps people can forgive more once they return to the spiritworld and see 'the bigger picture,' perhaps not.



    Forgiveness should never be pushed.

    It is possible and some people can, but not all

    I will have to disagree with you on this, Violet... :huga:

    No one is any different then anyone else. We all have the same potential. It is up to us to utilize it. The only difference is that we may not all be on the same pages in our development.

    Can we all forgive every act that has every transpired against us? Yes, we can... Can we all do it at the same time? No, some will take many many years to reach that place of contentment within what has happened where they can fully move on from it.

    For some, as you said, it may not be something they will be able to do in this lifetime. But, that is their own choice on where they are within themselves and where they are going with their journey.

    Forgiveness can not be forced or it will not be true.

    You are so correct with your statement, I wonder if you know how correct.
    It would not be a big deal to forgive when we on the other side. Those who hurt us the most, are most likely our closest friends. And when we get back, we might sit together and have a giggle about what we did to each other.
    But forgiving on this side can be just as simple if not easy. You just have to fully know what and who you are, that you are spirit.

    Yes, you're right. But maybe people are able to forgive when they reach this wonderful state of mind I described. I know that in this emotion everything could be possible.

    Hello

    From what I understand and have come to view when crossing over a person to the Light is that its an open space. Gone are the walls and veils really that we have on Earth. We still have our foundations that view as Earth land marks if one will but its all open to view and that is all well and good.

    It is what we want it to be and what we need it to be for us as we make that transtion. We too are free to wonder from there back and forth. To explore like those that be blessed in a physical life to Astral Travel.



    Peace is what comes to mind.....

    Dear Violet,

    I realized the last days that sometimes my gifs are visible and sometimes NOT.

    Have to change my gif-server...

    These days I'm often too tired to write... "fighting" at work takes a lot of power...




    Bye! Have a nice time!

    so what ya sayin is my heaven will look like my fridge full of food lolol.

    have you ever seen the film what dreams may come i would love heaven to be like that with some roman building in it

    What Dreams May Come is my favorite movie! They said heaven is big enough to have your own private universe. I hope it's just like the way they say it is. I'm unsure of how my heaven would be like though...
