Hi Matt, cool that you're able to participate here again.
So, with regards to the beginning writing Self Forgiveness and getting ourselves to understand it, it is definitely a process that each one goes walking according to how you currently understand it and the starting point of you forgiving-yourself, which is in essence a tool to start realizing where we have to take Self Responsibility for ourselves and structuring how we can correct such points to start living in a self-directive way, which is simply becoming aware of the words, actions and thoughts that we have in our day to day living. That's the first step and within writing our day out, we start developing a self-communication wherein we give words to our experiences, we place through written words that which we would usually just 'think' and let it go by, without taking a moment to question what is it that I am actually saying/ implying in such thought, what am I actually allowing myself to act-out in this moment? how come I have accepted and allowed myself to exist in this particular way - it can be a belief, a fear, an emotion, feeling.
Through developing the habit of writing yourself, you start becoming aware of 'who you are' through words - thus you are able to read yourself back and within Self Honesty see where you require to correct yourself, to be come specific as in 'digging out' further to see, for example, if a fear is experienced why is that fear there? What are the thoughts that lead me to exist within and as fear? So by 'specific' within the comments I've left in your blog, it is about writing out Self Forgiveness statements that contain the essence of the point you're looking at- such as you have now realized when there are 'broad' statements and you can dig further into it to see what is actually 'contained' in such self-forgiveness statement.
I forgive myself for accepting and allowing myself to speak self forgiveness from a point of separation from myself where I’m not actually working toward realizing and standing equal here to what I speak but instead I am using self forgiveness as a tool of manipulation where I create a relationship of feelings when I self forgive as I feel a certain way when I self forgive but don’t direct that point and by not directing what I feel when I appy self forgiveness I’m not applying myself to stand equal to self forgiveness and what I realize within my self forgiveness.
So within that statement, what we can clarify is how the 'realizing what I speak' point is how we might just say the words but don't realize what it actually means. It is to realize that when we speak and write Self Forgiveness it is a statement in which we declare that we take Self Responsibility to correct such points, because we have 'accepted and allowed it' which are the words wherein we become aware that what we have existed-as in terms of a certain application, a pattern, a thought, a feeling or emotion, requires to be directed in common sense, which is the consideration of what is best for all, what is best for me to live by and apply as a corrective process in Self-Honesty.
See for example what would mean to 'stand one and equal to Self Forgiveness' and how you understand such words - and see how Self Forgiveness without application is useless because that would mean only speaking out words without actually 'doing' anything about it. The 'doing' being the corrective process wherein you start supporting you to stop and correct all of the points that you bring up through Self Forgiveness and realize require correction.
See for example how 'what you feel' has to be understood as a point that requires direction in terms of stopping thoughts, feelings and emotions, as you realize that they are not supporting you to be here, self-directive, but keep you in a mind-experience as a 'feeling' which is what we walk and direct through our own writings as we go discovering who we are as words.
Cool for the points you have placed out here as you can see that it is only 'you' that can 'cheat yourself' by not walking the talk so to speak, and that's the way we learn to walk our own process: through realizing where and how we are still deceiving ourselves and how we can correct such point of self-dishonesty into a self-honesty point - that is definitely what we go finding out as we go writing and living out the process of self-correction.
So, this is all about clarifying you to yourself - by doing so, it will be clear and sound for anyone else. Thus be aware of not trying to 'fit in' the self forgiveness in a specific mold as it is not about 'how it is written' only, but making sure that you understand and realize what you are implying in your words in order to be clear on how to direct-you in each point - how you will practically support yourself to walk-through the correction of a particular thought, feeling, emotion.
I allow myself to speak each word of self forgiveness out of love for myself as me pushing myself to speak each word and feel and hear each word and actually dig in and realize within myself what I’m capable of doing as who I am as self forgiveness applied daily constantly as using self forgiveness as a daily checkup so I don’t make the same mistake twice and others can realize the same.
Cool - this is about you-supporting you, so make sure it doesn't become something to 'show' or 'prove' to others as that would be separation and seeking approval from your own statements - this is about sharing here and if there are points with which we can support, we will do so. However it's definitely a point that you go walking as you live it - that's the way that I can see any doubts about it become clear, the moment that I place a statement into practical application and see if the words I wrote out in Self Forgiveness are actually the way to correct myself or if I am just trying to 'present' them in a particular way that 'backdoors' are left to not fully apply myself - these are just examples, you'll go seeing it as you walk/ apply yourself in your process.
Overall cool for placing out Self Forgiveness on Applying Self Forgiveness - thanks for sharing Matt
