Forgiveness


Chinese character: Forgiveness. Forgiveness is never easy. To forgive, is to let go - let go of our holding on. If we can let go, we can move on.

It is hard to truly forgive others, or to forgive ourselves. Somehow the ego wants to hold onto something, otherwise the lightweight feeling could be overwhelming, unbearable. We think hatred makes us alive - but it is the opposite. It makes us dead, stale, not moving.

Forgiveness is powerful. It manifests tremendous inner strength.

Forgiveness. The word is composed by two characters: the suchness of mind (suchness + mind). Sumi ink on paper. 6.5 by 6.5 inches.
