A friend sent me a Ho'oponopono cleansing meditation meant to help people repair the damage done to themselves. They believe as I do that we have no right to force our beliefs on others. I chased the mist this morning and recited this meditation:
"I am sorry, please forgive me. I love you. Thank You."
For me this teaches humility and helps me to forgive myself, to find peace and joy as I seek my rightful place in the world and seek to rid myself of fear and anger. It helps me to withstand the angry and fearful people who shout their beliefs and force them upon me and other people.
I say this now 10 times in the morning, and 10 times at night and it soothes my soul.
I am sorry, please forgive me. I love you. Thank you.
