Without forgiveness we can have no peace or freedom. One of the most mind-blowing encounters I have ever witnessed about forgiveness was in the country of Rwanda. We arrived in Kigali and the first stop was to the genocide museum. Now, we had heard a little about what was going on in 1994, but I had no idea of the true terrors that these people encountered. 1 million people were murdered in 100 days…unthinkable. Ron and I walked through the museum for a couple of hours absolutely horrified, and then, we came to the last room. It was about the children, with pictures of individuals, telling a little about their life, their joys, and, how they died. My heart broke open, I couldn’t control the sadness that poured out.
“Forgiveness is the final form of love.” ~Reinhold Niebuhr
When we left the museum, I was silent. As we drove through the streets I looked around at the people, realizing that everyone over 15 years old at the time, had lived through that atrocity. What baffled me was that people looked happy. They are extremely kind to each other and they are very respectful of the environment. It was the cleanest country I have visited in Africa. When we met people, they were genuinely warm and open, singing songs of joy from their heart.
“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” ~Mohandas Gandhi
How could this be? How could they let go of the past and live with radiance? One word: Forgiveness
If they can do it, so can I. I found a book that helps and my friend Walter is sharing it with the world today.
“Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.” ~Suzanne Somers
If you don’t have the life you want, it’s likely because you are sabotaging yourself in ways you aren’t aware of. It doesn’t have to be that way. By practicing the “Forgiveness Diet” created by psychiatrist and best-selling author Walter E. Jacobson, MD, who has been using it with his patients for years and seen dramatic results, you can achieve happiness, physical well-being and material success.
