In 2001, I stated my mission as being: “To shift the consciousness of the planet through Radical Forgiveness and create a world of forgiveness by 2012.” Well, here we are in 2012, and still we don’t have a world of forgiveness. But even though 2012 is not necessarily a date certain for the dramatic shift in consciousness I talked about last time, I am convinced that Radical Forgiveness is the key to our moving through the breakdown phase with the least amount of anguish and as quickly as possible.
If and when the necessities of life to which we have become completely accustomed and take for granted suddenly become very scarce (like a steady supply of food, water, fuel, transportation and other consumer goods), and the structures on which we have always relied to give continuity, predictability and order to life begin to crumble (like the financial system, the legal system and perhaps even government as we know it), we will need the full range of spiritual tools that our Radical Living approach provides to help us move through the experience with relative ease. We will also want to:
- Engage people in the conversation;
- Make them aware of what the choice is; and then
- Provide them with the spiritual technology that makes the choice possible.
Radical Forgiveness will help you to stay awake and enable you to move through the experience with a knowingness that, in spite of how it might look, everything is in divine order. The Radical Forgiveness worksheet, whether online or on paper, will be an extremely helpful tool for shifting energy when there is time to reflect and spend the time doing it, and the 13 steps audio tool will still be perfect to listen to when you are at home or in the car—assuming, that is, that you still have fuel to run a car. But the tool that has the potential to be most immediately helpful will be the ‘Emerge-n-See,’ 4-Step Process because, once memorized, it’s instantly available exactly when needed. And it works.
If and when such crisis times do actually hit, large numbers of fearful and confused people will probably not be easily persuaded to take the time to learn about and use the Radical Forgiveness worksheet. However, they might, in their anxiety, be willing to reach out and grasp at something as simple as the 4-step process, if only to see if it works. I believe it will work for them—even if they have never heard of Radical Forgiveness—because it will resonate with something deep within them, and they will feel a sense of peace when they do it.
Our aim is to create a mass awareness of the fact that such a simple tool as the Emerge-n-See 4-Step Process can help people get through the difficult times and emerge with a transformed consciousness. My hope is that you, already having this awareness, will learn the 4-steps by heart if you haven’t already done so, and will find ways to teach it to others. If people seem deaf to it now, they won’t be when everything around them is breaking down. They will come to you because they will notice that you are not in fear like everyone else, and that you always seem to know what to do. (That’s because you will be receiving guidance, assuming you are in a peaceful enough state to receive it.)
Here are the four steps:
1. Look What I Created!
(Accepting that you are the creator of all circumstances in your life and that there is a purpose in all that is happening.)
2. I Notice My Judgments and Feelings, But Love Myself Anyway.
(Acknowledging your humanness and being aware of your feelings, judgments and thoughts.)
3. I Am Willing to See the Perfection in the Situation.
(The Radical Forgiveness step.)
4. I Choose Peace.
