The Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I tell you not seven times, but seventy-seven times’
You cannot be one in spirit with God if you harbour bad feeling against others. Sometimes when meditating you may find that your mind is incensed against someone that you feel ruined your day, your week or your year. Consider how thinking about this person in a negative way makes you feel. Your body labours under stress. You may notice that your eyebrows are furrowed, your jaws clenched, your shoulders tense and that you’re breathing faster than usual.
Luckily the universal power is quick to forgive and all you need to do is reverse your way of thinking. Be aware of the intensity of your anger but then concentrate on your breathing; relax every part of your body beginning with the muscles in your face, your shoulders, arms, stomach muscles and legs. Make the decision to forgive this person and proceed to empty your mind by concentrating fully on your breathing. Continue concentrating on your breathing, focus your mind completely on your respiration (the feel of it, the sound of it ) deepening your focus as your breath becomes lighter, calmer, moving you deeper and deeper into the meditative state. Stay in this state for as long as you can, you are releasing the burden of this sin from your mind and body and allowing positive energy to once more work in your favour.
