If you have an emotional reaction in the presence of someone,
your heart is telling you that you have
not resolved your issues with them.
In other words, you have not truly forgiven that person.
All of this begs the question, how do we forgive?
First, cease lying to yourself and stop telling yourself stories
about why you behave the way you do.
Stop blaming your behavior on other people
and take responsibility for your emotional reactions.
If you could forgive all the people in your life
who have hurt or wounded you
it would be possible to be in control of your behavior
instead of being in reaction to other people all of the time.
Imagine living life without experiencing
a constant emotional roller-coaster of pain, anger, and jealousy!
That would be bliss!
- Sheri Rosenthal

But what a cruel thing is war
to separate and destroy families and friends,

instead of love for our neighbors,
and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world!
- Robert E. Lee

instead of humbly saying Amen
to what the world tells you you ought to prefer,
is to have kept your soul alive.

- Billy Wilder

you will become a general.
If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.'
Instead,

of those who are more fortunate than we are,

of the great majority of our fellow men.
It then appears that we are among the privileged.

that would be giving as the angels give.
