To forgive is to love- and to love is to be loved in return. Forgiving knowledge is loving power- and this manuscript contains forgiving knowledge. The more we know about forgiving, the more love we will experience.This book uses reason (intellect) to love and forgive. Although The Bible is quoted, it is used as a reasonable tool to forgive as opposed to a demanding sword. Quotes from many sources are used, when the religious publishers approach love and forgiveness from a narrow denominational view. Real world here-and-now approaches and rewards are described, not suffering now in exchange for a future heavenly reward.PART OF A CHAPTERChapter Eleven - Reality and ForgivingWhen the seeker compares what is real to what is ideal, reality naturally comes up short.

The disappointed seeker sets this right (forgives) by accepting that reality is okay even when it falls short of what he wants: his ideal.Because desiring to live in an ideal world is accompanied by failure, a person must give up his frustrating desires by giving them up: by forgiving what is less than ideal.When the mature archer misses his mark, he turns and seeks the reason for his failure in himself. ConfuciusIt is only our expectations that disappoint us. In contrast to the ideal, is reality: that people are not all good, fair, or who they want to be.

The forgiving person lives in relative peace with an unfulfilled ideal. In contrast, the non-forgiver is frustrated and angry that an ideal is unfulfilled.The non-forgiver feels frustrated because he doesnt appreciate the paradoxical nature of an ideal: that his ideal can be great only in its contrast to the lowliness of reality.

To peacefully accept the contrast between what is real and what is ideal is to be forgiving. Forgiving involves accepting reality, which is often not as pleasant as the fantasized ideal. We shouldnt get so high thinking about what is ideal that reality becomes a downer. Give up ideals rather than give up on life, for when an idealized future is laid out like a measure, we cant help but fall short.Demand not that events should happen as you wish, but wish them to happen as they do, and you will go on well.

Epictetus 50–138Resignation is the only emotion not a sham. Joseph ConradAlthough starting to forgive what is not ideal may at first feel weak and painful, it is powerful and rewarding in the long run via its alliance with reality: real life is not ideal.Self acceptance is no more than realism.

That which is, is- that which you feel, you feel- that which you think, you think- that which you have done, you have done. Self acceptance is your refusal to be in an adversarial position with yourself. Fear and defeat can only exist in the absence of a willingness to accept ourselves just as we are.Freedom comes from the experience of having no alternatives.

There is only the way things are.” Jiddu Krishnamurti 1895–1986Forgiving doesnt mean liking or approving of reality, only a willingness to accept reality. Paradoxically, trying to control reality controls you: your time and energy are squandered in fruitless resistance. In contrast, accepting whatever life brings is to be free.

This freedom is often a source of anxiety, because one is accustomed to struggling to achieve or change something. Paradoxically, to forgive is the change that is no change. To forgive is to no longer struggle to change the past.

Reality: It isnt in your power to change what has already happened.You cannot unscramble eggs. North American maximYou cant change the past- but you can forgive it.
