Today’s Quote: Parents forgive their children least readily for the faults they themselves instilled in them. ~Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

Today’s Affirmation: I forgive myself today for all I believed yesterday.  I let it go until all that remains is love; this moment, love.

Today’s Spiritual Contemplation: In order to forgive those who stand closest to us we must first forgive ourselves.  When we have forgiven ourselves there is nothing left to forgive in any other.  We are all the authors of our pain, our joy, our Lives; and the judgments we adhere to are always the chords that bind us to our own suffering – or our serenity.
