To Forgive is Divine

To Forgive is Divine

What is the origin of forgiveness and its behavior?           

To pardon another for his or her offenses?

To start anew, to start afresh?

To let it all go?

And with the reality of “remembrance”, still being there

Forgiveness is the definitive cleansing experience

Of the mind, body soul and spirit 

Getting rid of all of the garbage and impurities

That strangle and corrupt our inner man

 The “state of forgiveness

Is as proximate to perfection that we can imagine

Unfortunately, many would rather hold on to hurts, resentments and anger

Than to live in a state of freedom

"To be free indeed"

It, usually, takes a “bigger” person to forgive

Instead of the person who committed the wrongdoing

A life that is consumed by bitterness and resentment

Is hardly a life worth living

So noted Socrates

An unexamined life is a life not worth living”

When anger and resentment consume you

It only leads to depression, life of misery, victimization and powerless

Forgiveness frees you

Forgiveness leads to increased feelings of

Self-worth and decreased psychological stress and behavior.

Forgiveness is really a gift that you give to yourself.

Forgiveness doesn’t mean you have to accept

The behavior of another, nor does it mean you have to forget

It means granting yourself the permission to be happy and to move on
