To Forgive is to sacrifice.

Sacrifice an apology from those you feel wronged you.

Sacrifice your perceived rights to revenge.

Sacrifice the higher plane of battle for a more humble, vulnerable position

Sacrifice a little bit, if not all, of your human self for His Holiness

Sacrifice your plans for His plans.

To forgive is to let go.

Let go of your desires.

Your desires to control something that was never yours to control.

True love is there to guide, but never control.

Because of Love, you sacrifice in the hope of being reconciled.

There is no such thing as starting over, there is only starting from now.

So sacrifice your rights to the past, forgive those who need it, and press on towards the future ahead.

Even if that means forgiving yourself.2012-08-05 10.42.10
