We are each other’s salvation. Forgiving a grievous wrong evinces a love so great that it cannot possibly fit into just one body. And it doesn’t. Those able to forgive are vessels of the LOVE available to all. They let that LOVE overflow, and with it peace and joy. And in so doing, they gain that peace and joy. It is a beautiful paradox.
Many things we forgive were never there in the first place. And others are wrongs committed by people enslaved by harmful beliefs.
We are not better than the forgiven one because of our knowing or because of our forgiving. We are not all on the same path. We all arrive at OUR truth in our own time. If someone has not found their truth yet, it is not because they are lesser. They are merely taking their time. Some things cannot be rushed.
