Forgiveness is about recognizing that staying resentful creates an active echo of the pain the offender caused. By saying that the awful offense the offender did is beyond forgiving, you give them the power to keep their offense alive in your heart. Basically you give the offender continued power over you. Forgiveness begins with the mind recognizing that there’s a truthful logic in how the past cannot be changed, but happily the present and future can be. Eventually forgiveness progresses to the heart, with the heart deciding it will no longer allow the offenders pain to take permanent residence. Yes it is a process, but eventually the mind and heart together recognize that the choice to forgive is both logical and spiritually liberating.”
