Letting go of past grudges, concerns, misdeeds, misconduct, hurt, suffering, struggle, or guilt is one of the greatest things we can do for our well-being. In fact, it’s the only way we can move forward to experience our good.
Forgiveness is so fundamental to a compassionate heart that the ancient text instructs us not to go to the altar asking for anything, until we have first forgiven.
How many times do we forgive? As often as it takes, or at least seventy-seven times, or seven times seventy.
Forgiveness does not mean that we accept or condone the misdeeds that we forgive. Forgiveness means that we remove them from our own souls so that we free ourselves to a consciousness greater than the toxins that attempt to weaken us. As Einstein said, we cannot solve a problem at the level of the problem.
