Forgiveness. The best way to end a quarrel is by forgiving. The best way to help transform a person is by forgiving. The best way to transform ourselves is by forgiving. The best way to show love is by forgiving. Forgiveness is the best antidote to wars and conflicts. Forgiveness, along with laughter, is the best medicine for our body and mind. Do you want to make lasting friends? Often forgive them. Below is a beautiful tradition of forgiveness:
In The Art of Forgiveness, Lovingkindness, and Peace, Jack Kornfield describes an African forgiveness ritual: "In the Babemba tribe of South Africa, when a person acts irresponsibly or unjustly, he is placed in the center of the village, alone and unfettered. All work ceases, and every man, woman, and child in the village gathers in a large circle around the accused individual. Then each person in the tribe speaks to the accused, one at a time, each recalling the good things the person in the center of the circle has done in his lifetime. Every incident, every experience that can be recalled with any detail and accuracy, is recounted. All his positive attributes, good deeds, strengths, and kindnesses are recited carefully and at length. This tribal ceremony often lasts for several days. At the end, the tribal circle is broken, a joyous celebration takes place, and the person is symbolically and literally welcomed back into the tribe."
Jesus asks us to forgive always. Infinite times. Let’s forgive and we’ll see how our little world can change one person at a time. We can indeed bring a piece of heaven to earth when we do so.
