The key to our self inflicted prisons...

Original Artwork by Daniel Steven Marconyak

Anger, resentment and unwillingness to forgive are prisons of the mind that we inflict on ourselves. Begin and end each day with sending out positive vibes to those who have trespassed against you. It is a reminder that we have all trespassed against someone else at some point, and if we expect or wish to be forgiven, we must first begin forgive within ourselves. This will perpetuate the positive energy of forgiveness- extending further than any negative energy ever would.

"Not to forgive is to be imprisoned by the past, by old grievances that do not permit life to proceed with new business. Not to forgive is to yield oneself to another's control... to be locked into a sequence of act and response, of outrage and revenge, tit for tat, escalating always. The present is endlessly overwhelmed and devoured by the past. Forgiveness frees the forgiver. It extracts the forgiver from someone else's nightmare." - Lance Morrow

Hope everyone has a positive and productive day! Good things find their way to you each minute of the day!
