" Forgiveness does not make the other person Right but makes you Free."

The author said this when she was asked if she had forgiven the assassins of her husband. It's a very powerful statement that I have drawn inspiration from.

" Maktub - It's all written."
Written in 2009 by Marc Lafraisiere --- Australia
But no matter if you are a believer of God or not, Jesus, Allah, Zeus, Elohim, Krishna, YHVH, Shen, whatever name you give Him, you got to have faith. You must believe in you because you are the one who writes your storyline. You are the master of your own destiny.

Still Long

What could have troubled me so?
It's a new day
The moon has gone to rest
And the sun shines brightly,
Extending her rays to my heart,
Brightening my past
Illuminating my present
And giving me a tunneled view of my future.

It's a new day of adjustment,
Of forgiveness,
Of trust
And of love.
A new day to right our wrongs
And bury our scars.

It is still long though,
As long as an hyphen
As long as from here to there,
But there,
Lies my forgiveness
And here,
Awaits my embrace.

This is a poem about forgiveness; I hope it helps you too.

Main hoon to Hum hain,
Main nahi to Hum nahi,
Sirf Main Hoon.

Translated Version:

I am there so we are there,
If I am not there then we are there,
Only I am there...
Written in 2009 by Nutan Sharma --- India
Let's say two friends are there and have a very good friendship. If both are there then they can say, "Yes, we are there". If either one is missing, due to any reason, then no one then can say, "We are there", only one can say, "I am only there".

Let go of worry, let go of strife
For far too short is human life
To worry about things that do not help
Your friends, your family or yourself So hold on to this I say to you
Your hope and faith and then you'll do
What is right for all mankind
It is in your heart and in your mind
Picture it there, a golden treasure
And you will have strength and peace forever

Some say it finishes a perfect day
With the most spectacular array of colour
Some say it is unforgettable
You are like that sunset - unforgettable

Some say that the visible stars on the blanket of twilight
Are what make a gorgeous night
Some say that even when those stars die
We will see their afterglow for millions of years to come
Some say they know why they twinkle as an oyster's pearl
Some say they are unforgettable
You are like those stars - unforgettable

Some say that the ocean is a mystery
A wide expanse of endless blue
Some say its waves carry away all problems
And swallows them into its deep abyss
Some say its power is limitless
And its prominent calm is like an angel's kiss
It is truly unforgettable
You are like the ocean - You are unforgettable;

" We can smile, breathe, walk, and eat our meals in a way that allows us to be in touch with the abundance of happiness that is available. We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive. Every breath we take, every step we make, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity. We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment."
Thich Nhat Hanh --- Submitted by Lauren C. --- New Jersey

A friend was just complaining and lamenting about his job, finances and other problems of life - what God has done for him. I used this quote to encourage him. I hope it will encourage others.

" At this very moment the universe is trying to manifest miracles through your visions, intuitions, and longings. Imagine that your inklings are God's whispers to your heart. The same God that gave you the idea will give you the means and support to see it through. The world is being transformed through people like you, who love themselves enough to trust their inner guidance, and relax enough to let the universe take care of the means."
Alan Cohen --- Submitted by Lauren C. --- New Jersey
