“Forgiveness is the economy of the heart… forgiveness saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.” – Hannah More
Do you know the golden rule which states, “Do to others, as you would like them to do to you?” How many of you know this rule, how many of you follow this rule, and how many of you ignore this rule. I’m a big believer in all good things come to those who put them out. For that reason, it’s important to learn to be a forgiving person. If you aspire to reach ultimate happiness, peace, and prosperity its important that you give out what you want in return. Don’t frown when you’re down, instead smile. Don’t share bad news; instead find ways to make it good. Be an agent of positive change toward the people in your inner and outer circle.
The most important aspect of this strategy understands the significance of forgiving, and forgetting. The mind is capable of anything, and forgetting is one of them. Of course, it’s hard to forgive things that have a made a great impression on your psyche and consciousness. But, it’s possible if you overload your thoughts with and actions with anti-resentment and grudge holding principles you will find it much easier to forget. Conversely, when the mind is idle it will quickly revert to transgressions that hurt, offended or affected you in a negative way. But, if you learn to truly forgive those who hurt you and sustain it through forgetting about it over time you will not only benefit by what you get in return. But, you will set an example for the other person that they very well may share with someone who has transpired against them.
Resentment like jealousy is a weak emotion and therefore easily acquired. It takes more work and more thought to overcome it and move on with YOUR LIFE! It’s important however that you do this as you will only HURT yourself in the long run if you allow ANGER to overcome you. Be the POWERFUL person that you are and use the anger as a tool to fuel you in a POSITIVE light. Don’t let negativity consume you as it’s a very infectious cancer that can quickly take over your entire being before you truly realize its impact.
Make today the day you decide you will “NEVER LET ANGER CONSUME YOU, YOU WILL NEVER LET OTHERS TRANSGRESSIONS HURT YOU, YOU WILL ALWAYS FORGIVE, AND ALWAYS FORGET AND ALWAYS MOVE ON” without this motto you may be a victim of life’s scenarios and thus invoke the vicious cycle of anger, and resentment in your daily actions. BE POWERFUL, BE VILIGENT AND BE CONSUMED IN ONLY PARTICIPATING IN ACTIONS AND THOUGHTS THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY, AND DOES NOT HURT OTHERS.
It’s going to be tough, it’s going to be challenging. But the sooner you learn to forgive and forget the faster you will be able to dedicate more of your mental facilities to the more important aspects of life!
Be GREAT at what you do today!
