OK, I really looked at Emha's page and was totally inspired by the way she has her goals listed out (thanks Emha - I love you!) so I went back and re-wrote that section of my page as well now that I'm almost 2 weeks into Season 2.
I have really had, lately, an uncomfortable confrontation with just how blocked I am on forgiving my father for some pretty bad stuff. After my friend Dawn asked me "Are you ready to forgive your father?" and I just looked at her like a deer in the headlights, and then just yesterday after I tried to devote my meditation time to a "forgiveness meditation" centered on him and had what I jokingly call a "bad trip", I can only conclude that I'm still throwing up roadblocks there. I have to stop. He has ceased to have any power over what I think of myself, and I have become completely unattached to the outcome of a final business entanglement I have with him that should be cut within this season. So...I have done a lot of cord cutting here with the assistance of supportive and wise friends and family. But the forgiveness part...hard. And yet I know that I personally can not be whole until I achieve that.
So, I'm going to keep working on this, and I would ask you, my friends and co-creators, for any advice, wisdom, positive energy, prayers, stories of your own experiences, etc. that you can toss my way as I work to achieve this goal. I am already grateful!
