Did it ever happen to you that you broke all contacts with a certain person because of conflict or resentment, and this detachment is continuing over years?
For some people, there is no turning back, no forgiveness … “How can I forgive this person after what they have done to me?” They ask.
Such deep disconnections happen especially among people who were once very close together, family, parents, siblings, or friends whom you loved and trusted.
The price for maintaining an ongoing anger is high resentment and inter-personal tension create a black hole in your energy body, a barrier that impairs our wholeness.
Somewhere in the background, some sadness is always lamenting that harms the joy of your life and makes it difficult to thrive.
If we want to grow personally and spiritually, we need to remove these black holes.
The ability for forgiveness, compassion and love for mankind is an attribute that always exists within us, by being a spark of the Divine soul.
The act of reconciliation is not easy – it requires overcoming the ego, but along with it – it brings us closer to our true essence – the loving, compassionate and forgiving aspect.
When we solve an ongoing conflict, we full fill ourselves spiritually. Genuine, wholehearted forgiveness to those who hurt us builds bridges not just an interpersonal level, but creates new ties between us and the higher realms.
With each act of forgiveness, a new cycle opens in our lives, we are loaded with a sense of joy and satisfaction, and released from the barriers that stopped and restricted us.
To forgive does not mean you have to let that person back into your life. As the Deli Lama said, “FORGIVE BUT NEVER EVER FORGET”.
If you do let the person back into your life always remember the Dalai Lama’s message.
