Forgiveness has become a popular topic. Sooner or later you come across this word on the way of personal development. Many psychologists, healers, spiritual leaders and practitioners will tell you: If your head is full and you are suffering from unclear emotional heaviness you just have to forgive.
In the classical sense one can/should forgive if one was badly injured (physically or emotionally, often in cases like betrayal). Luckily not everyone has experienced such heavy pains. But the head is still full and life has no joy…what’s the reason then?
I fount out that Forgiveness has a much wider relevance.
Basically you need to forgive
- when you keep coming back to a certain situation, keep analyzing or criticising others or your own behaviour
- when you keep arguing in your head with a person you had a serious talk even when days, weeks or months already passed
- when you regret you did not find the right word in a situation and you think !oh, i should have said that…next time I will say so and so”
In fact what happens is that your head gets stuck like a computer when it hangs. It just cannot continue working properly! – Just think of it every time you catch yourself on perpetual one-thought thinking. (more…)
