OF ALL THE VIRTUES, NOTHING is greater than forgiveness. NO two people think alike. Real happiness arises when we speak our mind and allow others to do so without any vengefulness.
We tend to be angry when others speak their voices openly and differently. It will be profitable listening to Khushwant Singh’s message. “Anger is a waste of time and energy. If you cannot forgive, withdraw.” This is how Our Human Nature is.
“Tolerance is the ability to forgive those who tend to speak before thinking.” Catherine Pulsifer
Agony & Pain
Differences coupled with anger breeds vicarious pleasure from one and victimhood from the other, resulting in agony and pain. A situation arises when these two people refuse to see each other and discuss misunderstandings. The only medicine for healing is forgiveness; continued bitterness will result in harm for both.
Forgiveness – A Ture Human Nature
All religions espouse forgiveness. We must, therefore, cultivate humility and only a humble person can forgive. Forgiveness leads to better health of the body and spirit of opposing sides and parties, kills hatred and enmity and enables them to evolve and rise high and discover the hidden secrets of the universe. The greatest people in history have never been unkind and lacking forgiveness. Women because of tender qualities value forgiveness more than men. A person who forgives is not a coward, rather has the ability to look beyond the immediate.
A Strenght to Forgive
We should pray for strength to forgive those who have wronged us, and we should abandon feelings of anger, bitterness, or revenge. We should also look for the good in others rather than focusing on their faults and magnifying their weaknesses. God will be the judge of others’ harmful actions.
