- I have been working on forgiving my father for sexually abusing me as a child. Intellectually I understand that he did what God and I asked and needed him to do. I completely see how he brought me to You and God, how without that abuse I would be out there lost in the maya. But at the same time I still feel so much anger, hatred, and grief over what he did. I do have moments of experiencing how much I love him and flickers of feelings of forgiveness, but what can I do to go deeper into the love and forgiveness? I do a lot to move the anger: exercise, writing and burning, beating my bed with a plastic bat, and screaming… but it seems endless. Is there something I am missing or do i just need to ride these emotions out?
- I love Your teaching of hugging heart to heart when embracing another, I have been doing this wherever possible since I first learnt it from You. I’d be grateful if you could explain why You recommend this, what the benefits are, and why almost no one on the planet hugs in this way.
- How would God want us to respond to aggression and terrorism? I struggle to find an answer for why we should not “fight fire with fire.” What doYou say to people who believe in vengeance and “an eye for an eye?”
