“Young people are dying today to avenge their ancestors. They are fighting in the Holy Land, where Jesus walked preaching forgiveness. They wage war interminably. What does it prove? Where does it lead? To peace? Never. The vanquished respond with vengeance and increase the human toll in battles over ancient enmities. It can all begin to change with you, if you learn the universal principal of forgiveness, learn to transcend hatred as a response to hatred, and to give away peace in its place. It is not weak to forgive, it is a gallant and brave act.
Fighting weakens everyone who participates. Everything that you are against weakens you in some way. You simply need to forgive, and never let yourself behave in ways which you despise yourself. An ancient Chinese proverb tells us, “The one who pursues revenge should dig two graves.”
Wayne Dyer, in “You’ll See It When You Believe It”
