Forgiving can be the biggest Lesson – 27 May 09

I always say that we should express our emotions. Even if it is sadness or anger which is normal and often comes with disappointment. But another great quality of human is forgiveness. We need to learn to forgive. Anger can only burn you from inside, but if you want to have peace, you need to forgive. And this you also have to start from yourself.

Many times and in many situations we don’t even forgive ourselves and even punish ourselves. But we often also want to punish others. You can imagine what kind of lesson you can give the other one if you forgive. You punish because the other one ‘has to get a lesson’. But forgiveness can be a much bigger lesson than any punishment.

In many religions God is shown and imagined as a judge who punishes but I see God as full of love and compassion. He has the great quality of forgiveness and always forgives us even though we do mistakes. He loves us, embraces us and forgives us. You should also learn to forgive yourself, then you will be able to forgive others. Because you can see that if you were in that situation, you would also forgive yourself. Why would you not be able to forgive others then?

  1. I completely agree about God being the ultimate source of love and forgiveness. I also believe that we incarnate on Earth as humans in order to learn, grow, and make mistakes! Because we are infinitely forgiven for our mistakes in life, is there really such thing as a sin? Many religious people feel that any bad behavior is looked down upon by God and is called a sin…and you’ll be lucky to have your sins repented! …In my eyes, this is not a real concept. It is just human fear and our inability to forgive and accept ourselves.

  2. Being angry and thinking about another person in a negative way is always a burden. Many people are not willing to make “sacrifices” and forgive someone else, who maybe makes them feel hurt. But to forgive doesn’t have to mean, that we have to forget what happened, but to free our own souls from negative energy.
