Forgiveness: Path to Inner Peace


Forgiveness is not always easy.
At times, it feels more painful
than the wound we suffered,
to forgive the one that inflicted it.
And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.
- Marianne Williamson

Forgiveness ... is the finishing of old business
that allows us to experience the present,
free of contamination from the past.
- Joan Borysenko

Forgiveness means letting go of the hope for a better past.
- Lama Surya Das

Forgive those who have injured you -
not because they deserve your forgiveness,
but because you can never be happy until
you release your anger and grant forgiveness.
Forgiving is not a gift to someone else -
Forgiving is your gift to yourself - a great gift - the gift of happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

  1. This is so very hard to do forgive from the heart when someone has done and said very bad things to you and done it on purpose intentionally to cause you hurt and pain, but I do understand if you can try to forgive they have no power over you..it releases you from it.. something I struggle with quite a lot in my life,I suppose some could try to forgive but I don't think you'd ever forget..bad words or things..it takes a very courageous kind of person with a lot of inner strength to forgive..but not forgiving someome maybe..really increases your suffering and pain..

  2. Forgiving is the key to my happiness. Without it I am a very bitter, angry person... God allows me to forgive from my heart. I'm not capable on my own. God bless you Johnathan for this blog. You help my life to be rewarding. I learn a lot from you. Julia
