0Nothing gets as much traction on my social media than the content I post about forgiveness. It is a universal that resonates with so many of us.
I read some wise words on forgiveness Mark Nepo wrote and he said it so well (as usual) that I have nothing to add. So I’ll just drop it here.
In order to keep the fire for justice burning, we need to keep burning our wounds open as perpetual evidence. Living like this, it is impossible to heal….we become our own version of Prometheus, having our innards eaten daily by some large bird of woundedness.
The mystery of true forgiveness waits in letting go of our ledgers of injustice and retribution in order to regain the feeling in our heart.
I start each day with a reading from Mark Nepo’s The Book of Awakening. Find it here.
