“Our spiritual development is not so much about falling as it is about getting back up each time. Forgiveness gives us the strength and courage to do that. It is the towrope on the beginners’ ski slope that pulls us back up to the top of the hill. It is the barre in the dance studio that we hold onto until we find our spiritual legs and achieve coordination and balance.
With forgiveness, we learn that the world may not have changed so much, but that we have changed our relationship with it. It reminds us gently, but in no uncertain terms, that we are in the world, but not of it. Forgiveness guides us not to react unconsciously to life’s passing comments but to respond consciously to the essence of her communication. Rather than throwing our tantrums of fearful judgments and expectations at the world, we must learn to look INWARD and discover the invisible source of our being.”
Michael J. Tamura, in “You Are the Answer”
