I'm still listening my way through the CD that came with my Iyanla Vanzant's Forgiveness book. I liked the book a lot - the CD, not so much. There's an odd difference in two of the audio forgiveness meditations. The "Mother" track was about releasing negative feelings - a good aim. Today's "Father" track was more along the lines of, "it doesn't matter if he was a jerk and never around. God was there doing his job. So don't worry about your actual Dad. Just believe in God instead." I found that really strange. Surely we should want to forgive both parents equally?
On Chapter 9 of a final review of my sci-fi romance novel. Time for a meditation break. Will meditate on how rich life can be. I have a glass of sangria on one side, Julie on my other side, and I love writing. Serene and joyous. Writing and Meditation are the perfect pairing.
