The bible mentions our need to forgive others, and to love our enemies. But do those books really explain why this is so important? I have finally awakened to the reason why forgiveness is such an important key to inner peace. It really is simpler than it seems. When you judge, criticize or compare anything, you are making that thing real. Forgiveness for what hasn’t been done keeps it unreal. It emphasizes to you that this thing, situation, person, or event does not matter. It cannot take away your inner peace, no matter how hard it seems to be trying to do just that. And notice how easily your calm disappears, when you let it!
Today, just start forgiving everyone you interact with, no matter what they say or do. See if that doesn’t make for a much better day for you and those around you, whether they are really there or not!
