I once forgave a man for beating my face in and he cried. He said that it is divine to love, but is Godlike to forgive. In the back of my mind, all I wanted to do was retaliate, but I was stopped by a greater force, peace. I think that non-violence is a great way to spread a message, even though I was trained to kill. I think that, that day, I truly learned of a better way... Kindness and forgiveness. While I would kill to protect the innocent, my life means nothing and it is worth the saccrifice.
And many times the act of forgiveness is to heal the person offering it in other words, if one retaliates ,even with just cause,seldom is the appetite of vengenance ever fully satisfied.
But forgiveness takes the power and sting out of anger and pain,and all that is left is -remorse and ground to rebuild esteem. Positivety. Just what I think.
