Jack Kornfield: Forgiveness

Forgiveness sees wisely. 
It willingly acknowledges what is unjust, 
harmful, and wrong. It bravely recognizes 
sufferings of the past, and understands the 
conditions that brought them about. 
Forgiveness honors the heart's greatest dignity. 
Whenever we are lost, it brings us back 
to the ground of love.
Without forgiveness our lives are chained, 
forced to carry the sufferings of the past 
and repeat them with no release.
- Jack Kornfield
