Even though we are one we can hurt eachother, he said.
Colin gave this out last night when he gave his dharma talk on forgiveness:
For the harm you have done to me, knowingly or unknowingly, I now forgive you.As one meditates with these thoughts they hopefully would be closer toward this state of forgiveness. What a weight it would take off of our shoulders!
For the harm I have done to you, knowingly or unknowingly, please forgive me.
For the harm I have done to myself, knowingly or unknowingly, I now forgive myself.
So much good energy is expended on grudges. IMHO (in my humble opinion) grudges that focus on people being who they are. WDYE (what did you expect? (I made that one up)).
My neighbor said that we can't forget because whatever we forget is always in the back of our minds... so I guess we need to do something more severe... like FORGIVE. Do it now. Please!
