“It is important for each of us to consider the meaning of those words “they know not what they do.” People who are inflicting harm on others really and truly do not know what they are doing to others. They are always acting out of their own anger, hatred, blame, or revenge. What they direct at others says nothing about the others. However, it says something powerful about them. This is what you must learn about forgiveness. Those people who have behaved toward you in any way which you find disagreeable or hurtful really and truly do not know what they have done to you.
“Why?” you might reasonably ask. Because they are unable to see that we are all connected. They are living out of their separateness. They see themselves as separate from everyone else. They cannot know what they are doing to others, because they feel no reference to others. They are sending out their disharmony toward you because that is what they have to give away. Hating them for their behavior is akin to hating moss for growing on a tree and destroying the appearance of the tree.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “You’ll See It When You Believe It”
