    [quote=”[email protected]” post=921]Hello everyone. I’ve just joined the TUI Network and am enjoying reading the discussions. I think that forgiveness and forgetting is needed as long as the pain of being hurt remains. And my guess is that moving out of the pain involves falling in love with yourself, or rather totally believing the truth of who you REALLY are (as Amanda describes it). With our present based in [i]that[/i] reality, we won’t feel the need to forgive or forget.[/quote]

    Welcome to our amazing community of like minded people, Sisbro789! :woohoo: We feel very privileged to have you here!

    You have made a brilliant comment here, that when we love ourselves, truly love ourselves there is nothing to forget and forgive. :woohoo:

    Why do you think is that?

    Why do you think that forgiveness is the begining of a transformation? Can you, please, elaborate on it a little bit more? :cheer:

    [quote=”[email protected]” post=931]Hi — This is Vickie’s husband Phil. I will be posting as PlatinumPhil2011 once I resolve some PayPal issues. But I felt a real need to post on an issue that has caused distress in so many lives — including my own.

    The concept of forgiving and forgetting implies that someone has somehow damaged me.

    Damaged self esteem and feelings of being misunderstood or unappreciated are part of the LIE that is our conditioning. In Truth, we each control what happens in our lives based on our thoughts and actions prior to that.

    So, there is no NEED to forgive others or to forget how we reacted to what they did.

    If pain or negativity exists, it was OUR thoughts or actions that caused it.

    We were each created as Absolutely Perfect, and we each have the Absolute Power to Transform our own lives. Individually and Together — we are creating upward spirals of Love, Light, Joy, Understanding, and Peace. It’s what we do.[/quote]

    Your comment is brilliant, Phil! :woohoo: Thank you and welcome to our community. We are very honored to have you here. 🙂

    How do we go about feeling that way in practice? :huh:

    Phil thanks for your wisdom. I have never looked at forgiveness in quite that way. :blink:
    Now I realize what has been missing. I have been looking from the outside in. :S Now I am looking from the Inside out. 😛 This is fantastic.

    Yes, Phil is awesome!!! :woohoo:

    Now, this is a question here. Should we look at everything from inside out? :blink: And why? :silly:

    Hello! Thanks, Amanda :cheer: By the way, this is Annette speaking. I thought something similar to what you said, Phil. When we take responsibility for creating everything in our lives, and also truly truly love ourselves, we will be grateful for who we are and able to be grateful and accepting of everything we have experienced. I was reading something about holocaust survivors and how so many of them have meaningful, happy lives. I suspect that they have learned the value of creating life from the present moment, rather than creating from past pain. I think it would be wonderful for each of them to fully grasp who they REALLY are (the I AM), and see how their amazing lives continue to transform our world. Of course I am talking about myself, too, as they [i]are[/i] me….
    Also, I am thinking that the past, as we see it from our human perspective is from only one perspective. I believe that as God Also, our past can look and feel completely different than the way we have been used to viewing it.

    Hi beautiful Annette! Welcome!!! I am so glad that you are here with us on that amazing adventure.

    All you have written in this comment is so true! :woohoo: It is a beatutiful comment. You talk about accepting of everything when we love ourselves.

    But it goes beyond accepting. What do you think happens when we truly love ourselves? :huh:

    Thank you for the warm welcomes 🙂 Loving one’s self, and making changes from the inside….definitely! I feel as if I know things in my head, but am only beginning to put it into practice. Beyond total acceptance is creation of a different past, I think. When we are living in pure Love and Light, our past changes, or we could choose to focus on any other past potential that we prefer. Or maybe there is no past, because what isn’t of the Light falls away. Hmmm…. interesting….

    In practice?? Do you mean, what do we practice to get to the TRUTH? Its the mirror and telling ourselves how wonderful we are etc. So we can truly love
    ourselves…
