But that was the past. This time we are in is our chance to redeem ourselves in some very big ways. The first order of the day is to see clearly what was done, by our hand and our choices, and what is still being done where there is ignorance.
The second thing is to forgive ourselves knowing we were not in a position to see what we were doing, which means to now forgive others who are still blinded.
And most importantly, now we must, in a state of self forgiveness (which is very much like a return to innocence) teach by example. As we loudly and demonstrably live in partnership with Nature, we can let the fruits of doing that be the testimony that can help others have a change of perspective and a change of heart.
Our options now are so wide open to work with a freed up power we house in our hearts and psyches. This is not the time for regret or anger or lamenting. It is the time of creating, birthing, producing and living in a way that will be called by those just waking up 'miraculous.' We are already forgiven. We just need to forgive ourselves.
