I watched a tv movie called Amish Grace. This was a fictional account of a school shooting in the Amish community that resulted in the deaths of 5 children. The main character struggled with forgiveness, found it too difficult for awhile to practice turning the whole affair over to God. Her journey that brought her to peace and forgiveness is a journey that I took with her as I watched the drama. I identified with the main character in so many ways because I harbored feelings of unforgiveness from childhood events, from work situations, from so many interactions that I thought I had come to terms with. I joined this character in surrendering all unforgiveness into a greater power that is in charge of making things right. I let go of being angry, hurt, victimized and found inner peace. The FREEDOM I experienced in my body has stayed with me. I know freedom like never before. I say thank you to the Amish.

This is a wonderful universe--a one-verse. There is an orbit for every being and a being for every orbit. Every orbit is written on a heart, a soul, and may be found only by consulting that soul.
That is the only difference between the loaf of bread and the man. The loaf of bread has to be raised in spite of itself--it has to be kept at just the right temperature from the outside. But a man has in himself the power to make his own temperature. He can work himself up to the rising point.
The only reason a man does not open his heart to Love and Will, and begin straightway to rise again, is because he does not yet understand that the buffetings of “fate” are no more “against” him than are the kneadings of the housewife against the success of her bread.
