Forgiveness Has a Fragrance

Understanding, acceptance, forgiveness ~ these are necessary for reconciling our differences. Hate is like acid thrown on our spirit. Even grudges leave their mark.

Reconciliation 8

Oscar Wilde was humourous about forgiveness. He counseled, “Always forgive your enemies – nothing annoys them so much.” But Rumi and Mark Twain went to the heart of the matter:

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there.
……..~ Rumi

Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
…..~ Mark Twain

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).
