PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, October 31st, 2012 by Polly Campbell in IMPERFECT SPIRITUALITY

“Even the good among us think about the merits of revenge. Anthropologists say it’s a universal trait to want to go after those who came after you. In other cultures, revenge worked to deter those who might do future harm. In intimate relationships, it doesn’t work so well.

Forgiveness, another evolutionary quality, is a better way to go. Research out of Stanford University indicates that those who cannot forgive, experience greater stress and health problems including heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, and lower immune response. Hanging onto the stress of what happened can actually make you sick. Forgiveness is the antidote.”
