The path of forgiveness ultimately researches this question: What would happen if I soaked _____________ (insert problem) in unconditional love over a period of time?
What might unconditional love soften? What part of myself might relax? What inner struggle could dissolve?
Most people think forgiveness is about compassion towards adversaries – but this view misses the mark.
Forgiveness is a partnership between you and unconditional love. You show up for the soak but you let unconditional love do the soaking.
When a forgiveness process is complete you will likely feel much softer towards others, but the real prize is a peaceful heart. With a peaceful heart your best and truest self can take the lead.
