Once again the idea of freedom is here. I imprison others and myself by my unloving thoughts. Those thoughts of judgment build the bars to the cell. My tight grip on the withholding of love for fear of losing what I have, does not work. It is only in the giving that I receive.
Fear stops the process. If I love without limits, without conditions or judgments then together we walk out of the prison cell.
So with a brother that I disagree with, who I perceive is withholding love at this time by her fear, I am seeing it and judging it. I can hold in my mind her freedom and hold the healing as well.
I know there were times that I withheld love from others under the guise of protecting myself from further damage and hurt. But the Love of God does not hurt, it only heals. Open my heart to the love and healing and my brother will experience the same.
I can understand her fear, her fear of hurt and abandonment. I have been there too. My compassionate understanding leads me to offering the gift of freedom.
