This is why often people are tempted to pursue revenge – as a method to even out a “spiritual debt.”
But doing an act of revenge only dirties up our side of the street – which dirties up our sense of self.
This is why “forgiveness” is the cleanest way to move forward.
Forgiveness is making the decision not to roll around in our offender’s mud.
Forgiveness is making the choice to release our offender from the “spiritual debt” we feel they owe us – so we can invest our thoughts and energy more wisely – and not risk going into more “spiritual debt” because of mounting anger and resentment.
Your life will feel richer by canceling any and all “spiritual debts” – and choosing to invest your time and energy into love, laughter and peace of mind.
