The difference between grace and forgiveness, and their many aspects in karmic justice
There are many aspects to karmic justice, and two of the most important concepts are grace and forgiveness. It’s important to understand the difference between these two ideas, as they can have a profound impact on our lives. Grace is often seen as a divine gift, while forgiveness is more about letting go of anger and resentment. Both concepts have their place in karmic justice, and it’s important to learn how to use them both wisely.
Grace and forgiveness according to karmic justice teachings
In terms of karmic justice teachings, grace and forgiveness can be seen as two sides of the same coin. Grace is often defined as undeserved favor, divine assistance, or unmerited kindness given by a higher power. In comparison, forgiveness is the act of pardoning another person’s offense or wrongdoing and releasing them from feelings of guilt and anger.
Both grace and forgiveness involve letting go and allowing for healing to occur–grace being more on the receiving end and forgiveness being more on the giving end–but both lead to a place of peace and liberation. It’s important to understand that grace does not imply forgetting about wrongdoings, which could leave a person open for further harm; rather it is an honoring of one’s humanness and potential for growth in relationship with themselves, others, and the divine.
How do they interact and create balance and harmony in the universe
Grace and forgiveness are two concepts that often get used interchangeably, but in reality they are very different. Grace is the compassionate understanding of another person’s actions or experiences, while forgiveness is the conscious choice to forego negative feelings like anger or bitterness against the wrongdoer.
These two concepts work together to create balance and harmony in the universe by allowing us to experience moments of love and peace after having gone through periods of hurt or despair. Forgiveness helps us to let go of resentment and find space for grace, understanding, and compassion. The result is a spiritually restorative moment that allows us to move forward with our lives feeling lighter, liberated, and at peace.
Examples of situations of grace and forgiveness
Karmic justice is defined as the spiritual belief that one’s actions will have direct consequences, either in the present or future life. With this concept in mind, examples of situations where grace or forgiveness is important include instances of failed relationships, negative behaviour that was caused by a mental health issue, and conflicts between differing beliefs.
In these situations, it is important to extend grace and forgiveness so that karmic justice may be achieved – when we understand the causes behind someone’s actions and exercise understanding, then we can learn from our own experiences and come to terms with our own bad karma. By showing mercy on others and allowing for growth and correction of our past mistakes, we can ultimately achieve balance in our lives.
How can we learn to extend grace and forgiveness to others, even when it’s difficult to do so?
Extending grace and forgiveness to others can be incredibly difficult, especially when emotions are running high or if we have been seriously wronged. However, it’s important to remember that these disciplines don’t just help the person being forgiven – they help us just as much. If we begin to practice grace and understanding, even in the midst of pain or disappointment, it begins to change our perspective and character over time; this makes it easier to forgive when difficult situations arise in the future.
Understanding the difference between extending grace and doling out justice can also go a long way in helping us learn how to forgive those who have wronged us. Even small changes like reminding ourselves that our own sorrow is valid can help us on our journey towards recognizing the need for forgiveness.
Grace and forgiveness as part of our journey towards spiritual enlightenment?
Spiritual enlightenment is an important part of personal growth, and an essential element of that journey is learning to practice grace and forgiveness. Grace and forgiveness are not the same- practicing grace involves offering compassion despite any hurt or wrongs that have been done. In contrast, forgiveness goes deeper by asking for something to be absolved entirely.
Practicing grace and forgiveness towards others as we seek spiritual enlightenment can have a powerful impact on our lives, as it helps us stay away from negative emotions such as resentment or grudges- all of which can block our true potential. By moving away from these negative thoughts, we can become more spiritually grounded and enlightened in the process.
At their core, grace and forgiveness are two of the most powerful tools we have for achieving karmic balance and harmony in the universe. By definition, grace is a state of divine assistance or strength given to us by God that helps us overcome our challenges, while forgiveness is the act of releasing someone from blame or responsibility for an offense.
Although they may seem like similar concepts, there are important distinctions between them that can help us create more balance and peace in our lives. In some cases, extending grace to others may be difficult, but it’s always worth striving for. As we practice giving and receiving grace and forgiveness, we open ourselves up to new levels of spiritual enlightenment and growth.
A few personal considerations
I wrote a few weeks ago about Karmic Justice, and I hope you read that and remembered it. If not, you can go back and look it up on the website about Karmic Justice from . It’s very important to know at this time that we are finishing up a cycle of millions of years – people are having to pay their karmic debts – and we are at a place where we need to forgive.
Forgiveness is a necessary step in our forward movement into the new world that is forming around us right now. Perhaps I can make it easier with an explanation of what forgiveness is – and isn’t. It does not mean that what the person did was okay. It does not mean they get to just walk away and start again. It doesn’t mean that there will not be a price to pay for things that they, or we, did that hurt someone else. Forgiveness is a process.
Think of the word for a moment: For-give.
It means to give something before anything else happens. Imagine someone did something terrible to you. Something that had lasting consequences and gives you daily pain. You resent them, and wish them terrible things and want them to suffer as you are suffering. That is human nature.
That is also a huge block to your serenity and peace of mind and ability to move forward and to be in a place to receive Divine Compensation for what you have suffered. So what do you do to free yourself? You for-give. You give them something before anything else happens. Before they show remorse, before they ask for mercy, you give. You give them over to God for Divine Justice in the Divine Justice System and you free yourself from being their judge and jury and dispensing their sentence.
You release them. You release them over to the care of God and you are then free to move forward and receive God’s graces. And what happens to them? In order to reconcile with God they must face head on what they did. They must, in some form or another, come to realize how deep the pain was that they caused. They have to ‘get it’. They have to know how bad it hurt. They have to be so sorry that they are willing to do whatever is required of them to make amends.
Then they make them. They repay their karmic debt, and that repayment can take many forms, but God decides what form. It is no longer ours to do. It is not our responsibility. We are free. If there is someone in your life that you just can’t forgive, you are energetically still connected to them and every time you think of them it brings you down. You deserve better. Forgive them now – release them now. Free yourself. Trust that Divine Justice can do things you cannot do, but it is fair and equitable and no one gets away with anything. But at the end of the day, if the conditions are met,
God is willing to restore. That’s Mercy. It’s for all. It’s for you. We all need God’s mercy to set right the things in our lives that have gone wrong. May you find it in your heart to celebrate our Creator who devised such a fair and just plan, and who stands ready with his gift of Grace for you today.
