Where you have caused others pain you create a situation that provides you with opportunities to change your response. But often the karma is repeated in the same way, creating another karmic cycle and an opportunity for you to re-create the situation in another lifetime. Where others have karma with you, they attempt to change their behavior but often repeat the past as well. And so the cycle continues. Each of you is seeking redemption by re-creating the situation. But it cannot be healed without forgiveness. In forgiveness there is redemption; without forgiveness the karmic cycle repeats itself.
All of humanity has repeated these karmic cycles in an endless pattern of pain, suffering and emotional drama. The soul seeks forgiveness and peace; the mind seeks explanations, answers and redemption. It wants to know why it was betrayed, hurt, abandoned and judged. It believes that through these answers it will find redemption. But the true answer does not lie in these things, many of which have no explanation. Forgiveness is the answer the mind seeks and to achieve forgiveness the mind must abandon all expectations of understanding 'why', it must simply accept and move on.
Forgiveness does not seek redemption, it knows that there is no reason to justify what happened in the past for the past no longer exists unless it is brought into the present moment. Seeking to justify any aspect of the past allows it to be re-created in the present. With forgiveness there is an end to karma, an opportunity to create a new reality and the peace that passes all understanding. Do not seek to know why, give those things to the Universe. Let yourself forgive unconditionally and move into the vibration of unconditional love, peace and joy. This is heaven on earth, where there is no attachment to knowing, there is simply understanding that all is occurring in divine perfection, all is well and as it should be.
