What’s Forgiveness? Forgiveness is the act of excusing a mistake or offense.
Forgiveness helps you achieve even your most practical and immediate goals.
Perhaps you want a better job, to earn more money, have better relationships, or live in a nicer place.
Forgiveness helps you achieve all of these. If you have not forgiven then a part of your inner life energy is trapped in anger, pain, resentment or suffering of some kind. This trapped life energy will limit and degenerate you. It it like trying to ride a bicycle with the brakes partly on all the time. It slows you down, frustrates and annoy you and makes it difficult to progress or move forward
The choices you make and the things that you believe are possible will all be influenced by the ways you have not forgiven.
As you learn to forgive, the energy which was going into unhappy thoughts and feelings gets liberated and can flow into creating the life you want rather than limiting you, or creating more suffering.
If you do not want to learn to forgive to benefit yourself; then learn to forgive so you can benefit others. As you learn to forgive you benefit everyone you are in contact with.
Your thinking will be clearer and more positive than before. You will have a lot more to give and you will more readily enjoy sharing what you have. You will naturally and easily become kinder, more generous and more caring of others – without having to struggle to achieve this. You will have a happier and more positive attitude to the people in your life and they will respond more positively to you in return.
Is a forgiving person easier to be around than an unforgiving one? Yes, of course they are.
A forgiving person is always much easier to be around than an unforgiving one. The quality of your life depends on the quality of your relationships.
Every aspect of your life will change for the better as you learn to forgive; whether in your family, your work life or your social life.
Learning to forgive will improve all your relationships, because your attitude will improve.
As your relationships improve, then all aspects of your life will also improve.
Learn how to forgive others because even Jesus Christ our lord and savior forgive all our sins on the cross.
