Forgiveness

Forgiveness heals, but most of us find it difficult to do, especially if the source of our hurt is close and personal.

If we feel hurt it means we have accepted or taken something that in fact we should have refused. Then we are left in a position where we now have to let go of it, give it away. Unless we do this we will continue to feel the pain. We have to forgive!

The source of upset is something in the past. Once happened we need to understand that it cannot be changed, it is impossible. But what can change is how I deal with it now.

When I am unable to forgive it is like waging war with the situation. Then I hold onto resentment and bad feelings within myself: I punish myself.

Forgiveness requires love and sympathy, initially for the self, but also for the other person. Where there is love, there can be acceptance and acceptance then becomes an easy stepping stone to forgiveness.

Take the step to forgiveness.

 

Om Shanti
