1. “I take a rather scientific/secular/rational view of life. I think that human beings are simply part of the evolutionary spiral and that, like every other animal on the planet, we are born, we live, and then we die.
Yes, there’s a lot more to it than that, but that’s more or less it in a nutshell.
I am not a strong believer in a deity (God), though I wouldn’t go so far as to call myself an atheist. I am not inclined to think there is a reality beyond what I register with my five senses. If there is, I have no real idea what that might be like. I am certainly not in touch with it and wouldn’t know how to talk about it.
Forgiveness to me means making a conscious decision to let bygones be bygones.
I think life can be understood and explained by science and by logical reasoning. The theory of evolution makes perfect sense to me, and that means life has no meaning beyond the idea that we have evolved from a primeval soup, more or less accidentally.
My purpose in life has been to live it fully, earn good money, raise a family and make life as secure as possible because life can be hard, relentless, chaotic and randomly organized. Life is just a string of random events that happen by chance, and I have to respond in the best way I know how. Death is real and final. There’s nothing beyond death.”
3. I am somewhat open to spiritual ideas and find them intellectually interesting, but I wouldn’t necessarily call myself a very spiritual person. I am somewhat open to the idea that we come in to learn certain lessons, and I do try to interpret life this way, but I don’t find it easy in practice.
Even though I am quick to blame and see fault in others, I try to entertain the possibility that the person I am upset with is there to teach me something. I know I shouldn’t try to figure out what the lesson is, but I am an intellectual person and love to know the how and why of things. I also get it at the intellectual level that the person is providing an opportunity to learn and grow, but I find it hard to really integrate that into my being. So I always struggle with that in real life.
Again, I understand at the intellectual level that true forgiveness comes when we realize that everything happens for a reason, but in everyday life, find it difficult to put into practice.
I am still scientifically oriented and rational minded. I am skeptical of spiritual ideas though I am open to exploring them.
My approach to life is practical, secular and very much grounded in an everyday reality. It is my duty to do what I can to make life meaningful and beneficial, not just to myself but others too. I am concerned about the environment and social issues.
Beyond that, life is about becoming educated, earning good money, raising a family and making life as secure as possible because life can be hard and unforgiving. Life is just a string of random events that give me the chance to learn about myself.
I am doubtful about whether there is an afterlife, but I am not sure about that. That said, I don’t believe there is a hell.”
4. I see life as a mystery, not so much to be understood and figured out, but to be experienced as fully as possible. I think the most spiritual people are the ones who are most human.
I am very open to the idea that there is more than one reality. There is at least this physical reality that we inhabit bodily every day, but I am also very open to the idea that there is another reality that we cannot see which we might call the spiritual reality. I don’t think anyone really knows what that reality is; but when I open my eyes fully and feel into my gut, I sense evidence enough that such a reality exists. And, I am comfortable with that.
I have my own way of connecting with that reality and expressing my spirituality (e.g. organized religion, being a member of like-minded groups, meditation, retreats, healing, praying, chanting, etc.); and I am happy with this.
Forgiveness to me is done by extending compassion to the other person and seeing him or her as an imperfect human being just like me and everyone else.
I believe in angels, but I have my feet firmly on the ground and still have a hard time trusting life.
I’m not sure what I believe, but I feel intuitively that life is more than just earning money, owning more things and raising a family.
I do believe there is an afterlife and that our soul is immortal. If there is a God, I don’t subscribe to him/her being judgmental and angry and I don’t believe in Hell.
5. I am a spiritual being having a human experience. By that, I mean that I have chosen to come to planet Earth in order to learn lessons and evolve spiritually. This is the school, and life is the curriculum. What happens during my life are my lessons.
I have come into the life experience with the desire to fully grasp what oneness is by experiencing the opposite of it — separation.
I had made agreements with souls prior to my incarnation that they would do things not so much to me, though it will feel that way while I am in a body, but FOR me. I also enroll others while I’m here to give me opportunities to learn. They look like my enemies, but I see them as my healing angels.
That’s how I see forgiveness — that everything that happens occurs for a spiritual purpose, and that while we remain accountable for what we do in the human world, in purely spiritual terms, nothing wrong ever happens.
I am now aware of being in two realities simultaneously. I am still predominantly living in the world of humanity and feel very much grounded in the experience of being human; but at the same time, I am very much conscious of my connection to Spirit and have a strong sense of why I am here.
I am comfortable with myself and am confident that life is supportive of me in general and is giving me lots of opportunities to learn and grow. Everything that happens is meant to happen the way it does for my soul’s growth. There are no accidents.
I use the Radical Forgiveness tools to release anything unlike love and Radical Manifestation tools to create the life I want. I am practicing the Radical Living lifestyle to the best of my ability.
Death is an illusion and is simply a transition from one vibration to another. We do not die. Only our bodies do.
6. I am totally into metaphysics, and I see myself now as a very spiritual person.
One of the ways I see our life on this planet is being on the wheel of Karma, reincarnating over and over, lifetime after lifetime, learning lessons, balancing energies and evolving spiritually until one reaches completion.
I am in touch with the spiritual realm and receive guidance from that side of the veil. I have several spirit guides, and I talk with angels a lot.
I believe that we human beings are all part of the Godhead, the purpose for our lives being to assist God in expanding His/Her consciousness and, eventually, to co-create Heaven on Earth.
As far as forgiveness is concerned, I am certain in my own mind that everything is in perfect Divine order and that there is nothing to forgive.
I am able to live in both realities at the same time and am grounded in both. I embrace life and know what my purpose is in living this lifetime.
I am willing to feel my feelings fully whenever something upsetting occurs and then move through it quickly. I still use Radical Forgiveness worksheets to keep my energy field clear of things that might lower my vibration, such as resentment, jealousy, guilt and shame. I am willing to feel them but not to keep them. I can manifest what I need when I need it.
