When I talk about forgiveness, publicly from stage, or privately in a one-to-one conversation, the questions I hear are often the same.

“Why should I bother to forgive, when I have forgotten all of it long ago?”

“I haven’t even thought about the past in years. Why should I open that cesspool, drag it all back up, get upset all over again just so I can now forgive…????”

"Forgive??? Who should I start with? It took too long to just...

This post continues the conversation about forgiveness started in a previous blog.

1.  Why forgive? 

So that you can finally find peace. 

The person that is at peace with himself does not want to start wars, he doesn't want to kill, to get revenge, to prove himself or herself right.

When you are at peace with yourself you accept yourself, you don't try to be perfect (which it impossible and so you always fail at it.) You accept other peopl...

Both in my life and in my work, I come across so many misconceptions around forgiveness.

Think about the famous line from the book and the movie
"Love Story." "Love means never having to say you a
re sorry."

I can't even begin to imagine what it means. How many times have I heard it quoted?!

Why? Because is sounds romantic? Does it?

First of all - it is simply not true.
Loving means (among other things) being responsible to the person you love...

Another week has gone by...
In 8 days we will be celebrating Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday!

Isn't it wonderful that in this country, we have a national holiday designated to feeling grateful. 
What a fabulous tradition!


What better time to be talking about Gratitude - my favorite subject?

Yet something else is coming through, and when it happens, I listen.
So here it is.

The holiday season is upon us, and with it - for many - the dreaded...

All true achievements and accomplishments start within.

Choice always precedes action.
Forgiveness always precedes change. 
Internal change always precedes external action and results.

In the midst of my very busy life, I found myself in a place of a deep pause.

There have been but a few times when have lived through something like that. Every time it happened, once the pause had been over and my energy had returned, I would experience a profoun...

It's good to come back to this ancient wisdom at times of a transformational experience.

Today's blog is about Forgiveness.

I write and talk about it often because in our world today, Forgiveness is still surrounded by so much controversy.

I won't go into this now, I have the 6-Part Video on Forgiveness "Time Doesn't Heal All Wounds. Forgiveness Will," on YouTube, where I cover it in depth. It is also in The Power of The Possible, throughout the b...

Those of you who read The Power of the Possible or listened to my talks know how much and how often I write and speak about forgiveness. I do it because I have come to a profound understanding that forgiving and letting go is the only way to be free of whatever had happened to us in the past that is still causing us pain.

We will never be free otherwise. No matter how many successes we have created nor how good it all looks on the outside....

It is 6:30 am. From my deck, I am watching the most glorious sunrise over the San Francisco Bay. Every possible color is splashed across the morning sky, from deep magenta to mauve, to violet, to luminous pink. The clouds are feathered like a fan and the sky is of the deepest, most sensuous blue.

I breathe it in, all of it, and I think about my mother.

Has she ever gasped at a sunrise like this one? Has she ever been moved to tears by the shee...

My mother is dying. Her kidneys are giving out, no longer responding to medication, and her lungs keep filling up with water, endless water coming from some bottomless underground reservoir in her body. The water doctors are unable to stop.

They pump it out – back it comes again, filling up her lungs, threatening to kill.

She is in constant pain. Incapable to move on her own, she is slipping in and out of consciousness. She is 84 years old.

I will share with you the first time I made a conscious choice to forgive someone from my past.

It was a very long time ago, way before I learned about the incredible Power of Forgiveness. Way before I understood how refusing to forgive and to let go had been destroying my life and coloring my every life experience.  Way before I first heard the phrase "You create your own reality," a phrase that these days has almost become a cliche because...
