When we do not forgive, we choose to let something unpleasant to remain within us. It's difficult to be happy when you harbor such bitterness inside you. It's hard to move on. Yet we carry this burden for many years or sometimes, indefinitely.
- Anapana breathing meditation - always start the meditation session with Anapana to prime the mind in a meditative state. Click the link.
- Forgiveness Mudra - as we remain seated in our most comfortable pose, let's put our open palms on our lap or knees, palm facing up. This is the mudra for forgiveness (Varada Mudra)
- Forgiving the Self - Now, let's focus our minds on forgiveness. Before we can forgive others, let us first look within. Let us forgive ourselves first. Sometimes, we are simply too hard on ourselves. Even with the best of intentions, shit still happens. It doesn't necessarily mean someone needs to take the blame. It doesn't mean you need to take the blame. Things just happen. Forgive yourself. It's not your fault.
- Forgiving Others - forgiving other people is difficult enough. But how do you forgive someone who shows no remorse?
- Let it Go - visualize this wrong doing, bring it out of your system and set it free. Let it go. Let it go. Watch it drift away and watch it dissipate into nothingness...in full compliance to the law of impermanence.
When we forgive, we unshacle our bondage from bitterness. The first person to benefit from our forgiveness is ourselves.
