For Remaining silent when a single voice would have made a difference, I forgive myself, I forgive you; we begin again in love.

For each time that our fears have made us rigid and inaccessible, I forgive myself, I forgive you; we begin again in love.

For each time that we have struck out in anger without just cause, I forgive myself, I forgive you; we begin again in love. 

For each time that our greed has blinded us from the needs of others, I forgive myself, I forgive you; we begin again in love. 

For the selfishness that sets us apart and alone, I forgive myself, I forgive you; we begin again in love.

For falling short of the admonitions of the spirit, I forgive myself, I forgive you; we begin again in love.

For losing sight of our unity, I forgive myself, I forgive you; we begin again in love. 

For these and for so many acts, both evident and subtle, which have fueled the illusion of separateness, I forgive myself, I forgive you; we begin again in love. 

 

Reverend Robert Eller-Issacs
