Further Musings on Forgiveness

Published February 21, 2015 by uncommonmommy

The willingness to forgive is a sign of spiritual and emotional maturity. It is one of the great virtues to which we should all aspire.  Imagine a world filled with individuals willing both to apologize and to accept an apology.  Is there any problem that could not be solved among people who possessed the humility and largeness of spirit and soul to do either- or both- when needed?

– Gordon B. Hinckley

An age old wisdom occurred to me during my musings on forgiveness this week.
When we connect with others and forthrightly forgive them,  we realize we too can ask for forgiveness from others and find ourselves worthy enough to receive it.  
The release is twofold.  The karma is nigh instant. Another blockage is removed. 

When we forgive,  we are forgiven.
