“The quality of forgiveness that burns up all things except beauty is the quality of love.”

“The above saying returns us to the Sufi emphasis on love, not as a decoration to our lives, but as the most powerful creative force of the universe. We may spend our whole lives distinguishing real love from passion, romanticism, lust, sentimentality, and all of the other ways that our culture tries to sell us counterfeit forms of love.

“Perhaps life is calling you right now to use the burning power of love to heal and erase the impressions that have lodged on your heart.”

Neil Douglas-Klotz, The Sufi Book of Life

It’s really best, my friend, to just let go of the past. Dragging around hurt and victimhood leaves you unable to truly enjoy the present or create better things in your future.

All of us are imperfect human beings doing our best to feel good and sometimes, whether intentionally or not, we hurt others. Once it’s done, it’s done. Tap into love and forgive everything and everyone involved, including yourself.

When you forgive, you set yourself free.
