Celebrate Forgiveness

Why is it so hard to forgive others?
Usually because we believe that they are 90% to blame for the problem, that i am not as bad as they are. So i start to carry the load of other people's actions.
If i feel too hurt, i will have the sense of correction, of justice: "I know i am right.", "That is not fair."
But if i start to forgive from the heart, sincerely, then this kind if feeling and attitude begins to dissolve.
I remain humble and this forgiveness will bring me closer to others.Then i do not carry regrets or anger.
I just let go and remain light :)
As the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi beautifully said, " The weak cannot forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."

So let us not be like the hand that crushed the flower, but be like the crushed flower which leaves fragrance in the hand that crushed it :)

Dear Krishna Ji,
Namaskar,
Yes, I agree.Forgiveness is a divine quality:
"It is manlike to punish but godlike to forgive."
One should be humble and strong enough internally to imbibe this noble quality.
Thanks for sharing another valuable post.
God bless you and your family.

A wonderful post! It is indeed only the strong heart that can have the courage to forgive.
I liked the idea that we should be like the crushed flower that leaves fragrance even after destroying itself.

Not all have the courage to forgive others. It is very easy to put blame on others. What we need to do is to self evaluate. Each night before going to sleep we should spend some time simply thinking about what we have done for the whole day. Only then we will realize where we are at fault.

Respected and my dear Surjit ji,
So beautifully said..It is truly Godlike to forgive and trust me extremely difficult!!
So often our ego forbids us to let go of all the resentments and petty issues which creates such rifts between our most valued relationships and the irony is that we all know what to do...Just let go and forgive:))
Lets all fly light!!
Love and prayers for you too sweetheart!

My Dear Amrit bir,
Its so nice to hear from you :))
So often i find myself difficult to let go of certain issues and move on and thats where i recollect that last statement...And finally be a good girl and sincerely forgive!!
It is difficult i agree but not impossible..Do you know why God gifted Angels with wings?
Because they are always Light and they never carry with them the burden of unpleasant events and circumstances :)
Sending you a big hug and lots of love!

My Dear Harneet singh ji,
Very true...It all very convenient to play the blame game and ultimately let relationships take a bitter turn , but yes, self evaluation shows us where we have gone wrong :) A great insight!
Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts :)
