The Ancient Heart of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is not just about the other. It’s really for the beauty of your soul. It’s for your own capacity to fulfill your life.

–Jack Kornfield

“Forgiveness is, in particular, the capacity to let go, to release the suffering, the sorrows, the burdens of the pains and betrayals of the past, and instead to choose the mystery of love. Forgiveness shifts us from the small separate sense of ourselves to a capacity to renew, to let go, to live in love. As the Bhagavad Gita says, “If you want to see the brave, look to those who can return love for hatred. If you want to see the heroic, look to those who can forgive.”

This is a wonderful article on forgiveness by Jack Kornfield and includes some video clips of him teaching on this subject.
