Happiness and Forgiveness
To master the art of forgiveness is to find the path to true happiness. Forgiving others and forgiving yourself. One of the most powerful definitions of forgiveness: Giving up the hope that the past could have been any different. Letting go of a past that we thought we wanted. Those words can set you free in your life and in your relationships. Free to live the life that we have, in this present moment.
A close friend, whom I admire, would say “I made the best decision with the information that I had at the time”. No regrets. No looking back. Such a healthy attitude! This good advice eluded me for so long. I spent a lot of time and energy wondering what I may have done differently to direct a different outcome in a given situation. When, in truth, that was the only outcome. Things really do happen for a reason.
Learning How to Let Go
Now letting go is a choice. And to let go and find forgiveness is to find freedom. When you hold on to pain and hold on to resentment, that hurt feeling is nothing more than your ego’s response to a person or a situation. You are choosing to let that have power over you. Forgiveness is a courageous act of trust and compassion. One that comes with a bountiful reward of healing, love, light and liberation for our body, mind and spirit.
According to Deepak Chopra, by finding forgiveness, we can free attachments from the past and clear the ties that constrict our heart. We expand our ability to love and be loved and invite peace and well-being into our lives. When you unburden your mind, you release your spirit. Your life becomes a rich and treasured adventure!
