What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us

Our salvation lies in radical forgiveness, which is the commitment to the perception of each others innocence. We are all innocent, regardless of what we are displaying at the moment. The fact that someone is not displaying their innocence does not mean that it is not there. By affirming their innocence even when they are not showing it, you literally bring it forth. Or at the very least, even if they are not showing it, you can no longer be at the affect of their lovelessness, because you have decided to perceive something else.

Marianne Williamson from A Course In Miracles

Don’t worry about what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that. Because what the world needs are people who have come alive.

EveryONE is invited to our Citizens for Peace meeting on Tuesday, March 10th at 7 pm at Unity of Livonia. The topic is "Using Nonviolence to Create a More Peaceful World". I will share some information that I used in a presentation to the American Association of University Women at their convention last year. It will be a starting point for a group discussion on nonviolence. What a perfect way to celebrate the Season for Nonviolence! Please join us & bring your friends and family.
Peace, Colleen

Sincere forgiveness isn’t colored with expectations that the other person apologizes or changes. Don’t worry whether or not they finally understand you. Love them and release them. Life feeds back truth to people in its own way and time.
