I ask for your forgiveness

Let yourself remember and visualize the ways you have hurt others.
See the pain you have caused out of your own fear and confusion.
Feel your own sorrow and regret. Sense that finally you can release this burden and ask for forgiveness.

Take as much time as you need to picture each memory that still burdens your heart. And then as each person comes to mind, gently say:

“I ask for your forgiveness, I ask for your forgiveness.”

In the end,
forgiveness simply means,
never putting another person out of our heart.

Peace is possible

You hold in your hand an invitation:
To remember the transforming power of forgiveness and loving kindness.
To remember that no matter where you are and what you face,
within your heart peace is possible.

Ask for forgiveness

There are many ways that I have hurt and harmed others,
have betrayed or abandoned them, caused them suffering,
knowingly or unknowingly, out of my pain, fear, anger, and confusion.

Let yourself remember and visualize the ways you have hurt others.
See the pain you have caused out of your own fear and confusion.
Feel your own sorrow and regret.

Sense that finally you can release this burden and ask for forgiveness.
Take as much time as you need to picture each memory that still burdens your heart.
And then as each person comes to mind, gently say:

I ask for your forgiveness, I ask for your forgiveness.
