Forgive and Forget

Often when we are hurt by people, especially those close to us, it becomes very difficult to forgive, move on and re-nurture trust.

With everything we do, say or even think, we are laying the building blocks for the future. When a hurtful scene occurs and we hold onto that scene and the pain – when we don’t forgive – then that becomes the foundation for our future too.

It is as if we reap a harvest that is diseased and keep the seeds to plant out again. Planting seeds that are infected will only result in another infected harvest.

Something painful that happened in the past exists in the past. If we decide to keep it safe and cultivate it again and again in the future then it will stay with us. In fact it will multiply, grow and influence other areas of our lives too. It is not about the person or situation that hurt me in the past but it is about the future I want for myself.

What is required is the courage to let go, to forgive and forget. We need to burn those infected seeds and have the courage to start again with fresh, healthy seeds.

Do I have the courage to forgive and forget?

Om Shanti
