“Forgiveness will never fail to free you.”
— Jerrold Mundis

How do we forgive when we’re angry and hurt?

As a first step, we can be willing to truly feel our anger and hurt. Honouring our feelings by being fully present with them helps to release the feelings themselves.

And it helps to remember that people only hurt others when they themselves are in pain. When we can recognize the other person’s suffering, our heart can open in compassion. We can also remember that at some time or another, we too have hurt someone through our own unskilful action.

Only love can heal the rifts caused by a hurtful deed. Forgiveness holds immense power because it mends separation. It moves us towards the unity and love that lie at the core of our being. It is a fundamental part of the healing process.

“Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.”
— Paul Boese

“God has a big eraser.”
— Billy Zeoli

Daily Wisdom
April 21, 2021

“There’s no finer caress than a love letter, because it makes the world very small, and the writer and reader, the only rulers.”

-Cecelia Capuzzi, 1987

A love letter is the ultimate in romance. It’s something to be cherished, and read over and over again. When we really make the effort to put into words how we feel about someone, that brings us clarity, and it brings meaning to the relationship. Letters of love can be written to our children, or our parents, or to anyone we love and appreciate.

-Lissa Coffey
