The art of forgiveness

All of us make mistakes despite having a choice of not making it. It all depends on our inner power, perspective, and judgement at that moment. Just as we expect to receive forgiveness for our mistakes, we need to focus on giving it.

The word itself says for ‘give’. Forgiveness is not just about letting go, it is also about carrying love for the other soul for life in the future. It does not erase the past but looks upon people and situations with greater compassion, mercy, and love.

When creating a new painting, if colours are applied incorrectly on canvas and left to dry, it becomes difficult to remove or blend them with the right colours at a later stage. Similarly, when we catch the mind painting a negative picture of a person, we should immediately repaint it with colours of virtues.

It brings a beautiful transformation within us, an acknowledgment of our inner power as well as unconditional acceptance.


This is forgiveness in action. Procrastinating or taking too long to forgive may make the negative colours too stubborn to replace, takes longer and makes the effort harder. Without forgiveness, the ego becomes more powerful in our consciousness kills our ability to love. We become far more judgemental and critical about people. But when we forgive, we surrender ego and let compassion flow.

We care for our own emotional welfare apart from our relationships. It brings a beautiful transformation within us, an acknowledgment of our inner power as well as unconditional acceptance. Regular meditation and study of spiritual principles are spiritual tools that increase inner power and foster unconditional forgiveness.
