F**k Forgive and Forget. I Much Rather…
Forgive and forget? No way! My memory is too good to forget. Heck, 8~38~32. What’s that? The combination to the gold and black faced bicycle lock I had in kindegarten. Plus, when you don’t forget, whatever it was can lie nascent and dormant never to be seen or heard from again UNLESS it gets resurrected for a repeat performance and is played into pattern recognition. I never forgive and forget. Forgiveness and apology are best from my perspective when they create a deepening… when they morph more into a Queen of Swords “no bullpoopy” where no news is good news. Forgive and forget? Nope. Notta chance. I much rather forgive and expand together. And… here is a short video to prefigure an epic spiral of giving and receiving…
2-Way Street of Forgiveness
You see, I feel that forgiveness is a 2-way street where there is a reciprocality to an apology in a way to move forward after a mutual shedding of pain caused by self or other to self or another… and, key to it being successful is not passive-aggressively bringing the “forgiven” thing up again, don’t scratch the scab. A key is the forgiveness that creates a deepening, together. Rather than forgive and forget, I go by forgive and expand, where forgiveness, like grief, is a catalyst to a process rather than being an event or the two words, “I’m sorry.”And, what caused any of it in the 1st place? One of your Parts acting up? Well, can you listen to that Part until it, within you, trusts you again? If so, it may also then have a message for you, relieve it squeeze on your sovereignty, and consequently integrate into you. When a Part integrates after you’ve received its message, once it trusts you enough to do so, its energy enhances you, gives you more of you, doses you with more of yourself. Then, most often it’s not behavioral mods that are necessary. When a Part relieves you, you most likely stop re-living the trigger that caused what you needed to apologize for in the first place. Well, at least that’s been my experience, and 1 or 2 others I know.
Forgiveness and Cards that Express It?
And, in regards to cards? How do they factor into forgiveness? I will venture to put the 10 of Swords and XVI The Tower leading to an enhanced celestial groove with XVII The Star as a series of cards that can be utilized to express the process I refer to above. I utilize these cards as a process of forgiveness. Cups would certainly be driving to get to the process emotionally, though I feel that these other cards suit the mindful empathy to round the forgiveness experience through the process and reconnect back into the Queen of Cups — as restored harmony in the emotional and intuitive realms.
anguish, release, essence revealed, rock bottom is a dang strong place to stand
big change, world-altering, emancipating
cosmic grooves, eternal hope, inspiration
emotional and intuitive harmony, discerning feelings clearly, hidden depths seen
