... COMMITTING TO THE HEALING PROCESS...
... there are only two ways you can live your life. There are only two choices you can really make.
One choice is to be forgiving, patient, loving, accepting, kind and nurturing towards other people. In Law of One terms, this is the path of "Love," "service to others," or the "positive polarity."
The other choice is to treat other people as weak, pathetic, disgusting, shameful and utterly unworthy -- to see yourself as clearly and obviously superior, and to have absolutely no care or concern about their feelings -- unless it benefits you.
In Law of One terms, this is the path of "Control," "service to self," or the "negative polarity."
I was shown very clearly in dreams that it is absolutely useless and destructive to choose the path of Control -- for any reason -- unless you fully and completely intend to become a sociopathic mass murderer.
If you do choose this path, everything you do to others will end up being paid back to you anyway -- with meticulous, grueling precision...
... THE WHEEL OF KARMA
Perhaps the most significant Law of One passage is, "In forgiveness lies the stoppage of the wheel of karma."
Forgiving others IS forgiving yourself.
Once you give that magic gift of forgiveness, let go of the need and desire to try to control other people's free will and can see them as beings of infinite worth, you are no longer bound to the "wheel of karma."
The "wheel of karma" is what everyone continues to run through until they no longer choose the path of Control -- even slightly.
Each cycle of the wheel starts out with that feeling that you are on "top of the world" and everything is coming up roses. You are totally high, totally invigorated, and nothing can stop you.
However, as the wheel turns, things keep getting worse and worse -- until you reach that "Dark Night of the Soul" or "All is Lost" point.
This is NOT the end of the wheel -- ever. Even though we may absolutely believe it will be the end, and resist it with all of our might, sooner or later it catches up to us -- and we "hit bottom".
After hitting this point, and suffering profoundly, we "pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and start all over again."
The wheel keeps turning -- in perpetuity -- until we fully master the lessons of forgiveness. Then, and only then, can it actually stay at the top -- without having to turn any further...
