Close that Rift and Start the Healing

There is nothing more liberating than to forgive someone. When you grant another person your forgiveness, you get permission to become a better being of grace, love, wisdom and peace.

For each person you forgive, we add a Teddy Bear to the “Forgiveness Forest” installation in the Love, Peace & Beads Museum™.

Each bear contributes its own secret story for the “Bear Forest” – a display of renewed love and warm acceptance.

You are giving a huge gift to ease someone’s burden: imagine no more guilt, no more fear of being turned away because of an unresolved dispute or a misdeed in the past…

Take that load off your back and try it out… you can’t go wrong. It’s a ridiculously small step to take!

Your only cost: some courage

Deep down inside your heart, you know that it’s the right thing to do.

Sure – there are things that are very difficult to forget. You may have been hurt emotionally or physically by someone close to you, and you find yourself deeply in anger over that.

The offense cuts deeper and deeper, until it’s well established in your system. There’s no way out of it.

Oh, but there is! You see: each time you allow your memory return to the time of hurt, you are really damaging yourself. Whatever transgression it was that offended you, it’s getting worse if you can’t let it go.

Look at it this way: nobody is free of bad judgment at some time or another. The offender may be losing sleep over his or her actions. Most likely, they may have never intended to make you miserable.

Being human can be just so difficult sometimes.© by Love & Peace Project

Imagine, if people could SEE the love you feel…

…maybe they would understand you better. Or maybe they would simply enjoy catching your good vibes. Maybe they would get inspired.

Your kind thoughts are about to be in the open

They’ll become components of an art installation. They function as messengers of good will, when we take YOUR APPRECIATION and include it in the museum.

Make yourself feel much better:

Once you get over that threshold, you’ll realize how everybody has done something wrong at some point in their lives. Then you may nudge yourself a bit, and work towards your own peace of mind.

When you forgive someone, it’s like a release from strangulation. You’ll feel better the very moment that you can say “I forgive you”.

Does your forgiveness matter to someone? You bet!
