Forgiveness

Mahatma Gandhi by pranav
"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong." Mahatma Gandhi
I believe in forgiveness, but I have a question that I am pondering: "Do you need someone to ask for forgiveness or to say they are sorry before you can forgive them?"
I think that it is hard to forgive someone who does not apologize to you first.  What do you think? 
I do realize that sometimes you have to tell the person that they did something hurtful to you. But then the next step is theirs. But then how do you 'get over' the hurt or slight if they don't acknowledge that they hurt you? Hummmm........
Much to think about. Well it is less than a month now to the start of Chalica. Time to start planning. 
  • Will you use one chalice or a group of chalices? 
  • Will you do this as an individual or 
  • Will you do it as a group?
  • What will you do each day to honor the principles?
Start thinking more to come in the near future.
Blessed be 
Kathy
