Expanding Our Forgiveness Horizon

As we forgive one person, look what happens: a) We start to forgive others; b) We embody forgiveness, wanting to give it away to others; c) We see each person as special; d) Because forgiveness is part of love and beauty, we begin to love more deeply and to see the beauty of the world more clearly.

Forgiveness does not lessen what happened; it alters how we view the person in spite of what he or she did. It can alter how we see the world and how we interact with others. Forgiveness can give us our life back. It can be an offer to those who acted badly to change their lives so that love and beauty are expanded in their world as well.

    Forgiveness as opening the eyes to beauty—-a beautiful thought.

  2. Chris says:

    Your point, I think, is that as we forgive one person, then forgiveness becomes a part of our life. But, what if that first attempt does not go so well?

    Ali Martin did forgave the gunman from Louisiana. The gunman is dead and is being dealt with God. There is no need for retribution. Justice has been served. He is gone for good. May the two victims rest in peace. God bless.
