Next is a study of the Habit of Forgiveness. This is about releasing ourselves, not others. For most people it is cathartic, rewarding and difficult.
You cannot force yourself to forgive. But when caught in the trap of seeing things from yesterday’s personal perspective, you are stuck in the victim role.
In Stillness, contemplate someone you wish you could forgive. Accept that you may be both physically and psychically uncomfortable. Imagine that person bathed in the light of love. Wish him or her well, knowing that this does not mean you have to engage in a renewed relationship.
