When there has been hurt inflicted
and injustice done?
Should not anger and rage
have the last word?
Does the other even deserve any forgiveness?
Maybe. And probably not.
But you deserve peace.
You deserve freedom from the past.
You deserve the lightness and release
that forgiveness brings.
As you transform
your relationship with the past
you actually arrive in the here and now.
Maybe for the first time fully in quite a while.
The practice of forgiveness
deepens your breath,
opens your heart,
calms your brain
and eases your pain.
You are free.
Free to be fully present.
The past has lost its power over you.
The door into the future has swung open.
and you will be free.
