Forgiveness

Forgiveness
by Marianne Williamson

Forgiveness is like the martial arts of consciousness. In Aikido and, other martial arts, we sidestep our attacker’s force rather than resisting it. The energy of the attack then boomerangs back in the direction of the attacker. Our power lies in remaining nonreactive. Forgiveness works in the same way. When we attack back, and defense is a form of attack, we initiate a war that no one can win.”
