Question: Atreya, How would you define forgiveness?

Forgiveness is to allow the heart to remain open in spite of the intense impulse to close it.

In other words, allowing all the self-preservation alarms to go off within the body and mind without letting them affect the inner vision that sees and loves the One in all things, times and places.

  1. Another blogger commented to me once that she uses the term ‘letting go’ instead of forgiveness because whilst she couldn’t forgive her perpetrators, she could begin to let go of the affect their actions had on her. I really love that way of thinking.
