Diet is derived from the Greek word for ‘a way of life’. We achieve spiritual weightlessness to the extent we drop the past and forgive everyone for everything. This is how angels fly.
Forgiveness has naught to do with making apologies. In fact, it has nothing to do with words at all. Forgiveness is the recognition of myself in you, of our deeply held common interest.
We are enjoined not to judge, but why? Two reasons. First, judgement is ego’s province, not ours. Second, every judgement ego makes is based on a partial truth and is ipso facto false.
Forgiveness is not a tool for the extraction of an expression of remorse from some hapless miscreant. Hell, that’s just crazy! Forgiveness is what happens when a conscious man declines to take offence.
An open mind is a mind that does not judge. Yes, it has a way of seeing things, a point of view, but it nurses no opinions, harbours no resentments, renders no judgements.
