Forgiveness is the exercise of compassionAnd is both a process and an attitude. In theProcess of forgiveness, we convert the sufferingCreated by our own mistakes or as a result of being hurt by others into psychologicalAnd spiritual growth. Though the attitude ofForgiveness we attain happiness and serenityBy letting go of the ego's incessant need toJudge ourselves and others.
"We constantly judge ourselves. Our minds Decide what our experience should or shouldNot be - relentlessly labeling things good orBad - and demand that our lives conform toOur labels. Then, when pain comes into ourLives - and it does to every life - we not onlySuffer it, but we suffer our suffering as well.We add the mind's harsh judgement of painTo our actual experience of it. By practicingSilence, we may discover the ways in whichWe intensify our pain by judging it. Then weHave a chance to become lass harsh, moreForgiving."~~Gunilla Norris
