“WHAT IS FORGIVENESS?”
From a recent conversation:
He had searched for advice on how to handle one of the most troubling experience of his life. It was worse than losing a client. It was worse than losing a wife. it was worse than being told he had a life threatening disease. “What do I do?” he asked. (How could he not know the answer?) The answer came from an old friend; it was in the form of a question:
Q: “What is forgiveness?” came the ‘answer’ posing as a question. “Is not Forgiveness Love”? “Is not Forgiveness the operative description of Love.
“It appears that Love is not a human thing. The human thing is surely Fear, also known as Dishonesty, is it not?.”
“Must not The Source of Love (and Forgiveness) be God? Is not the experience of Love ( and therefore Forgiveness) the result of accepting that Love?”
(According to Lao Tzu and the first Buddha, even an atheist can experience Love simply by doing Loving things for others).
To lose the Love of one’s children is incredibly painful. And though pain feels like a gift from The Liar of All Things, it is in reality a ‘ Gift’ from The Giver of All Things.”
