TWO SLEDGE HAMMERS

“Forgiveness offers everything I want.” A Course In Miracles

“Through forgiveness I will knock down all barriers to my peace today.”

If we are having some challenges with someone in our life, spouse, partner, sibling, parent, friend, co-worker, it is time to remember once again that it is through our relationships we will be healed. 

If there is a barricade between us, it’s one we both put there.  No one in a relationship can build a barricade alone.  And no one can knock it down alone.  So let’s get two sledge hammers and start knocking. The barricade is anger, hurt, frustration, sadness, guilt. The sledge hammers are forgiveness. At some point we just have to forgive each other and start over. That’s not always easy, but it’s always worth it.  When we heal our relationships, we heal our entire lives.

If the other person isn’t ready, we can remove ourselves from the fray and agree to disagree. This may have to be an internal gesture at first, but by allowing ourselves to be lifted above the battleground, we are letting God be in charge.  A simple prayer for help will open our hearts and minds to hearing God’s guidance.  When we open a channel for His thinking, He can tell us what to do and what to say to make corrections that will be helpful to all.  And at the very least, we can find peace in God even in the midst of chaos. 

There is only one side here and that is God’s. And He doesn’t take sides. In God there is only sharing and joining in Oneness. But we have to be willing to see ourselves and our relationships differently.  A little willingness is all God asks of us for His power to flow through.
