THE NEST OF FORGIVENESS..............

IN A TREE, WITH IT'S SUIT OF GREEN CLOTH ,CLOTHING IT'S EXTERIOR, SAT A NEST OF SMALL TWIGS, WHICH WAS THE NEST OF FORGIVENESS, WHILE THE LEAVES RUSTLED IN THE UNFORGIVING WIND, THE NEST BARED IT'S SECRET, A WEEK OLD CHICLET, WHO HELPLESS AT FIRST, WAS ON THE ROAD TO GREATNESS, AS THE VERMIN PROWLED DOWN BELOW AND THE CREATURES OF THE NIGHT SENSED THAT THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY HERE, UNTIL A SOUND AROSE ABOVE THE WIND AND FILLED THE DARKNESS WITH FEAR OF ITSELF, FOR IT HAD NOT BEEN ON THE RECEIVING END OF FEAR UNTIL THAT MOMENT, WHEN THE SEASONS HAD PASSED AND FROM THE NEST OF FORGIVENESS CAME FORGIVENESS ITSELF, SPRITE ON WING, FILLED TO CAPACITY WITH THE IMAGES OF IT'S OWN PROWESS, WHILE ALL THE TIME, COMPARING IT'S STRENGTH AND HUNTING ABILITIES, WHILE FORGETTING WHAT IT'S TRUE PURPOSE WAS AND IS, IN A NEW WORLD, OF WHICH ALL HAD CHANGED, WHEN THE DARKNESS HAD FEARED ITSELF AND NOW THE DARKNESS HAD REGAINED THE UPPER HAND, AND INSTILLED FEAR INTO ALL, WHILE FORGIVENESS FLEW TO EXPERIENCE THE THRILLS OF FLIGHT, AND THEN , ONE DAY, IT SAW A MISSHAPEN ANIMAL THAT HAD STRAYED AND KNEW INSTINCTIVELY THAT THIS WAS A MOMENTOUS OCCASION, WHILE ALL THE TIME CIRCLING IT SAW THE DARKNESS CREEPING UP ON THIS CREATURE AND IN A FLASH, FORGIVENESS SWOOPED DOWN ON THIS CREATURE,AS ITS WINGS FOLDED BACK AND IT PICKED UP SPEED, WITH THE INTENTION, NOT TO HUNT, AND TO IT'S OWN SURPRISE, TO HOLD THE CREATURE IN IT'S TALONS, WITHOUT CAUSING IT DAMAGE AND PERPETUALLY FRUSTRATING THE EFFORTS OF THE DARKNESS AND AS IT FLEW TO THE HIGHEST POINT AND RESTING THE CREATURE GENTLY DOWN , IT STARED INTO THE EYES OF THIS FORLORN ANIMAL AND IT SAW ITSELF AS A YOUNG ONE AND IN THE INSTANT OF RECOGNITION, THE CREATURE DISAPPEARED AND ALL THAT WAS LEFT, WAS A DISCOVERED PURPOSE AND THAT MOST IMPORTANTLY, FORGIVENESS HAD FORGIVEN ITSELF, AND IN THE PROCESS, HAD FREED ALL THE CREATURES FROM THE DARKNESS ONCE AGAIN.

Very powerful. As are all your messages. Hoping all is well. I have been doing much exploring lately into realms of my own healing and forgiveness. Healing shattered pieces of the soul. The hardest thing is to forgive ourselves.

TITANIA,
thank you....exploring self while maintaining the selflessness and the focus is always a challenge.
the pices that appear shattered is due to the perception and emotional attachment to the outcome.
when that changes the whole is seen whole again.
to foegive oneself is to believe that one is created in love and will always be held with love no matter how it appears at any given moment in our lives.
take care
namaste

grace,
as with all our journey's the keys are the most important aspect.
each comes with a certain cost and sometimes a sacrifice, but the rewards are much greater.
thank you for your support and friendship.
