Forgive, forgive, and forgive

Forgiveness is a powerful force, second only to love, with which it is intertwined. It is a source of strength, hope, and peace.
Many believe that forgiveness is a gesture, a gift we give to others. But it is more than that. Through forgiveness, we save ourselves.
As the Tao teaches, until we understand and live forgiveness, we are lost. Lost in anger, resentment, and self-loathing. Lost in a vortex of negative thought that cripples us.
Some foolishly think that to forgive is the weak move. But the forgiving person is strength incarnate. Positive energy flows like a river from such a person.
As always, the lesson is simple to state but harder to live. Just forgive, forgive, and forgive.
