Heart of Forgiveness


white camellia with heart in center

first camellia of the autumn
smiling hello as I leave my home
heart-centered, glowing gold,
reminding me
of the heart of forgiveness
God gives us in our magic toolkit…
expanding heart
pushing out hurts
creating space
for God’s grace to flow
giving lightness of being
bringing gift of joy


“We should love others in the utmost extent and forgive their mistakes. This is true love for God. Those who have such love in their hearts will receive God’s grace.”

—Amma in “Lead Us to Purity”, p. 11
