Forgiveness: Choosing not to drink the poison
In Canada, our summer draws to a close and a new season of activities awaits. In other parts of the world, spring approaches with its potentials for newborn projects. No matter what part of the world we live in, this time of year calls us to cleanse ourselves and begin anew.
Are you holding on to bitterness? Are you drinking poison, swirling it in your mouth, and savouring its flavour?
Can you see it as poisonous only to you and not to the other person or other people?
Forgive, pour out the glass of bitter poison and begin again.
