Constantly driven by the need to safeguard our survival we often find ourselves caught in a conflict with our situation, environment or our loved ones. Every day we deal with this conflict between isolation and acceptance. We endure arguments, fights, differences, separation, helplessness, abuse, exploitation and violence. These painful experiences are often not erased from our mind stream. They remain lodged in our psyche causing us to keep attracting more of the same.
Cultivating and practicing unconditional forgiveness can lead us to accepting life and people with all the arising contradictions, as a result of which we gain equanimity and lasting peace, ending the perpetual cycle of our suffering.
In todays show Paula and her partner Rashminder Kaur who are the creators of an eight module program: Karma Completion, Finish What You Started, will examine how to cultivate forgiveness toward others. They will also share a Buddhist Meditation called Loving Kindness followed by ‘Tonglen with Others’ which fosters forgiveness and allows us to shift our perspective by releasing past memories and embracing people and situations as they exist.
