When I started on the spiritual path, the story I was told, again and again is that our divine soul chose everything that has happened to us. For our highest good. Yet over and over again I met soul after soul who, like me, could not swallow that story. Your Soul chose this? No. You see we have free will. WE ALL have FREE WILL. The people who hurt you did not need to choose that. But they did. And...you do need to forgive. That part if true. Not for them, for you. Because anger and grief and living in the past is poison. Let's talk about it.
