‘The Art Of Forgiveness’, Sunday 23rd May, In Person Class


It is important to be able to forgive other people and also ourself.

Even though in the past others may have treated us badly, we can mentally let go of frustration and view them with a more accepting manner.

We can see people as being essentially pure and loving, but who are controlled by their delusions – negative states of mind which remove their freedom and makes them act in unpleasant ways towards us.

Also, if we feel guilty or mentally beat ourselves up about something we have done in the past, we can also look back and see ourself as someone who had no freedom due to being controlled by our own delusions.

By thinking and meditating in these ways, we can grow our love and respect for others, and let go of emotional baggage that is making ourself unhappy.

By training in meditation, we create an inner space and clarity that enable us to control our mind regardless of the external circumstances.

Gradually we develop mental equilibrium, a balanced mind that is happy all the time, rather than an unbalanced mind that oscillates between the extremes of excitement and despondency.

If we train in meditation systematically, eventually we shall be able to eradicate from our mind the delusions that are the causes of all our problems and suffering.

In this way, we shall come to experience permanent inner peace.
