Tiger Wise: For-Give-To-The-Ness

Let’s get real about forgiveness. It ain’t easy. If it was there would be a lot less bitter people driving cars. The point and power of forgiveness is to release and surrender situations that can’t be changed. By relinquishing control and accepting that what is – is supposed to be – you actually end up doing less harm and more good to your overall health. Holding grudges causes stress to the body – and stress is what makes us unhealthy. Forgiveness is a release for ourselves to experience – for OUR benefit – not for the benefit of the person who we perceive did us wrong.

It’s not a matter of letting someone get away with what they did – many times, a person does what THEY believe to be right. So it’s hard to argue wrong from that perspective. What becomes troublesome is the grudge we hold onto and the anger it produces. Anger is fear at a boiling point: wishing for death, praying for bad things to happen, throwing shoes (guilty), yelling at the top of your lungs (a-hem). Anytime you let your temper be blown, I guarantee you’ll feel worse about yourself. All anger does, in my humble opinion, is add more holes to your wall and your soul. Think about it: there’s no Noble Rage Prize – only peace. Cool off, slow down and realize that the person you hate is made up of the same stuff as you. Remember, there is no right or wrong, only perception. What makes one person angry can make another person laugh. It’s all how we roll it off the same shoulders we put it on. The choice is up to us.

If you know anything about the Law Of Attraction, you will know that like attracts like. Therefore, if you are living in anger or shame – get ready to attract more of the same. Think about what you are thinking about. If it brings you down, it’s time for a reboot.

Be in love and send love to those who have harmed you. The easiest way to do this is to become aware of angry thoughts and replace them immediately with loving ones: think of negative thoughts as a heart attack and positive thoughts as a defibrillator. If you were having a heart attack, you wouldn’t second guess something that would save your life. Same thing here..I know, easier said than done, go suck on some hemp, hippie and call me when you flower feet touch the ground.

Namaste.

    In my book “EMOTIONAL FREEDOM” I emphasize the importance of forgiveness and why revenge doesn’t work. Forgiveness is the act of compassionately releasing the desire to punish someone or yourself for an offense. It’s a state of grace, nothing you can force or pretend. There are no short cuts. Mistakenly, some of my patients, wanting to be “spiritual,” have prematurely tried to forgive after someone emotionally knifes them in the gut. First, you must feel anger before you can begin to forgive. I gradually guide patients to the large-heartedness of forgiving injuries either caused by others or self-inflicted.

      Thank you for your comment! Wonderful insight. I will check your book out. I do agree that you have to feel the feelings of anger before you can heal them. Have a great day!
