There are two ways to understand this. One is to be on the side of generosity—that is, to be for giving. Why? First, it’s the secret of happiness. Generous people are happy people. Miserable people, however, are often miserly people. Second, to “Be for…giving,” is also to be just that – forgiving. That is to say, it means to practice the art of forgiveness. The deeper your experience of self-forgiveness, the higher your capacity to be forgiving toward others. If you cannot forgive someone else, know that there is very likely something inside of you that you’ve never forgiven.
