Love is For Giving

I love this pun on forgiveness and unconditional love and compassion. This concludes the current series on forgiveness. First some techniques. Before you start the forgiveness choose the person you wish to forgive. To a certain extent the best person to choose is the one who is most difficult to forgive. Remember that so long […]

Forgive someone who has harmed you

Anyone who comes to my seminars or private practice knows that forgiveness is the linchpin of my behavior modification, coaching and spirituality. Here’s another of those old posts on forgiving: In the past few days we have discussed some of the methods involved in forgiving others. Today we discuss why forgiving is necessary for our […]

Send blessing to each person you meet

This old post continues the theme of unconditional love which brings peace to us. Loving your enemies is not for their sake. It is not for religion. It is only for you. Coincident;y it makes the world a better place and produces good karma (religious brownie .points or whatever makes sense to you). Loving kindness, […]

Ask for wisdom for your enemies and yourself

I don’t know what is going on but as I’m transferring these old posts, I’m discovering many synchronicities.  Recently I have started sending love to people I do not appreciate (mainly politicians and radio TV broadcasters). Given that I believe that these people are destroying the world (especially the USA) and lack any loving compassion […]

Surround someone or some situation you dislike with love

I had written this post ten/eleven years ago before 9/11, before the never ending wars… As far as the situation in Israel/Palestine is concerned, things have got even worse. There are many more illegal settlements, and no peace in sight… So surrounding the whole world in a pink light of peace and unconditional love is […]

Affirmations for forgiveness

This is another of those old posts I’m porting to the blog. It has a great affirmation for forgiveness: The Christ in me forgives the Christ in you. The above affirmation comes from Catherine Ponder. I used this affirmation at a time when a business partner had embezzled much from me and I was full […]

What does it mean to accept and forgive

I am currently purging myself by doing one of the worst jobs in the world. The job I’m doing has a reputation somewhere bellow that of crooks, lawyers and politicians (is there much of a difference) and child molesters. I’m selling cars. One of my coworkers is a prototypical used car sales person. He has […]

How to deal with adversities

Adversities and negative events are facts of life. As the Buddha said life is suffering. As is written in A Course in Miracles Workbook, “There are no small upsets.” That is to say adversities and negative events bother us in an accumulated way so that ultimately they can wear us down unless we do something […]

Cutting you nose to spite your face

A question which is always important to ask is, “Do you want to be happy or do you want to be right?” This is similar to the idea of  cutting you nose to spite your face. I recently got another hosting company to host some other blogs. Something went wrong and it was down for […]

Forgiveness leads to clearing of negative emotions

Forgiveness and the clearing of negative emotions is a linchpin of my therapeutic and behavior modification work. Thus whether I work on weight management, smoking cessation, pain management, exam anxiety or performance enhancement for sales and management I always include a section on clearing negative feelings and forgiveness. One of the largest impediments to the […]
