You are the essence of essence.... Be sure of what you look for... It is you...It is in you..

This year I had an experience that hurt me badly.. Almost shattered me. I can proudly say that I really understand what the poem below means.. cos it was forgiving that person that ultimately healed my wounds..
The tears I shed, I forgive.
The suffering and disappointments, I forgive.
The betrayals and lies, I forgive.
The slandering and scheming, I forgive.
The hatred and persecution, I forgive.
The punches that were given, I forgive.
The shattered dreams, I forgive.
The dead hopes, I forgive.
The disaffection and jealousy, I forgive.
The indifference and ill will, I forgive.
The injustice in the name of justice, I forgive.
The anger and mistreatment, I forgive.
The neglect and oblivion, I forgive.
The world with all its evil, I forgive.
Grief and resentment, I replace with understanding and agreement.
Revolt, I replace with music that comes from my violin.
Pain I replace with oblivion.
Revenge, I replace with victory.
I will be able to love above all discontentment.
To give even when I am stripped of everything.
To work happily even when I find myself in the midst of all obstacles.
To dry tears even when I am still crying.
To believe even when I am discredited.
- Paulo coelho
P.S. From his new book The Aleph (O Aleph), The book is currently only in Portuguese, but it will be published world wide in 2011
