“How does it feel to carry that anger in your heart?
Does it lessen as the days go by?”
Mary Magdalene, the movie.
This week’s blog has been inspired by the movie, Mary Magdalene – which I watched both last night and the night before.
I’ve never really understood the importance of forgiveness but the enormity of it really hit me last night.
I’m all about inner peace.
TempleSoul is all about finding your own inner peace, your own TempleSoul.
If we raise the resonance of each individual, we raise the resonance of the entire planet.
The power lies within, it does not reside outside of us.
Forgiveness is a very important step in achieving inner peace.
The following was an excerpt from the movie….
“The Kingdom is here now.
It’s not something we can see with our own eyes.
It’s within us now.
All we have to do is let go of our anguish, our resentment and we become like children, just as he said.
The kingdom cannot be built through conflict, not by opposition, not by destruction.
It grows within us with every act of love and care, with our forgiveness.
We have the power to lift the people
Just as he did
And then we will be free,
Just as he is”
The kingdom – is inner peace.
We can’t see it, as it’s not a physical thing, it is a state of being.
We need to not only let go of anguish and resentment, but also hate, fear, anger and jealousy – anything that goes against love and kindness.
It’s available to us to experience in every moment of our lives and we can achieve it by being love and being kindness and being compassionate. We can experience it only when we let go of any anger that we are feeling inside because while we carry that anger within, we cannot feel peace.
To become like a child may have a double meaning – children trust and forgive and let go effortlessly. We can only find our TempleSoul, if we are like a child – meaning……
We can only find the love inside our hearts, if we let go – of the anger inside and trust like a child – then we find the kingdom – inner peace and eternal love.
Alternatively, like a child could mean living as an extension of divine love – the greater energy of love (often referred to as God, All that is, The Universe etc etc) being the parent and we being a child in that union.
Anything that goes against the energy of love will stop you from feeling it and therefore stop you from achieving inner peace.
“The kingdom cannot be built through conflict, not by opposition, not by destruction”
We as individuals are our own kingdom, and we as a collective whole are a kingdom.
We cannot achieve inner peace while we have any inner conflict, if we oppose love with our actions or we destroy our sense of well being with negative thoughts, words, emotions or actions.
Similarly we cannot achieve world peace through conflict.
We cannot achieve world peace through opposition.
We cannot achieve world peace through destruction,
We can only achieve inner peace and world peace through the act of love.
We can only achieve inner peace and world peace through the act of kindness.
We can only achieve inner peace and world peace through the act of forgiveness.
How will you choose to live your life??
