Forgiveness is and action verb

Forgiveness is an action verb

not an abstract noun

I believe we cannot forgive ourselves if we fail to seek forgiveness first from those we’ve harmed…

it is wreckless and unkind to close our eyes to the pain we’ve caused

forgiveness is a path we walk with open eyes,

it is not a blindfold used to protect our own egos

if we choose to judge another’s ability to forgive

we turn our backs to the mirror

only to become more self-centered and less self aware

it is a choice…

choose the abstract, and lighten the conscience;

or choose the action, and enlighten the soul.
