“Forgiveness is a prerequisite for inner peace. Holding on to grievances, regrets and resentments is a certain recipe for perpetual suffering. Each of us needs to consciously decide if we are willing to relinquish our need to be right in the service of peace, harmony and love. Whenever two people disagree, both are convinced they are right and the other is wrong, justifying their antagonism and legitimizing their hostile actions.
Transforming judgment into understanding allows peace to replace hostility. Understanding fosters forgiveness, which dissolves anger and fertilizes hope. This is the foundation of emotional freedom. Forgiveness brings divinity to humanity. More than a mere mood or sentiment, it radiates from a heart that has released pain, resentment, regret, disappointment and guilt. Forgiveness is a practice. It has the power to release constrictions in your heart that inhibit your ability to love.”
David Simon, in “The Ten Commitments”
