For several years a young lady and her father had not spoken to each other because of a misunderstanding. It seems that he had not forgiven her for something she had done. There was resentment and bitterness on both sides. When the daughter came to me, she said she would really like to have a harmonious relationship with her father again. She felt guilty about what she had done and wanted to get rid of the awful feeling she had harbored. Hopefully, there was some way she and her father, whom she obviously loved, could get back together again, but she didn’t know how.
We began treatment in this way: She was to just allow love to well up from within her letting it love herself, then to consciously radiate love to her father, surrounding and enfolding him in love, and silently speak words of love, approval and forgiveness to him. She was to forgive herself and to accept his forgiveness in the assurance that he had long forgotten about the incident and had already forgiven her. And, to accept that God, in His infinite grace had never condemned her. She was to take no outer action.
Further, she was to imagine she and her father together in a loving relationship, and to say nothing to anyone about what she was doing. After praying together, in which we agreed that love was taking care of the matter quickly and harmoniously in divine order, she went on her way.
It was like a miracle! One day she came hurrying into my office, fairly bubbling over with excitement. She said that she had been doing as instructed and for no apparent reason, her father had called and said that he wanted to see her. This was arranged and it was a tearful, but happy reunion for both.
You can just imagine the joy of these two souls who had long wanted the same thing, yet because of perhaps foolish pride or guilt, had avoided each other. Love quickly and silently swept all the blocks away and the result was automatic.
Love Is the Golden Key that makes all family relationships happy and of real substance. Love not only brings family members together in true, creative activity, but keeps them together in peace and harmony. No matter how far they may seem to go from each other, there is always the spiritual bond of love that maintains unity while allowing each other to be free. There is no substitute for love in family and all human relationships. This is true for national and world relationships, too.
