I believe that when someone does us harm, we' connected to that mistreatment like a chord or a chain. Because forgiveness is nothing less than an act of fidelity to an evil-combining campaign.
Forgiveness is not an act of niceness. It's not being a doormat, its a bit different than that, its about changing our mindset and perspective of the situation, its about growing a different take on that action that will in the long run affect you. Maybe that act of evil feeds our ego, to want it to get revenge or want the other person feel bad for what they have done. But this is just ego process feeding the evil.
Because in the end if we are not careful we can actually absorb that negative energy and absorb our enemy and on some level even start to become them. So what if we forgive, rather than embody them and their negativity, is a way of actually saying its OK. Forgiveness is about not saying its OK to what you did but a freeing mindset that says I refuse to connect to this negativity anymore.
Forgiveness is about being a freedom fighter and free dangerous people from our orbit. When you have freedom in your mind then you do not connect to their damaging energy and encompassing mindset that attaches you to them. Free means not being controlled or manipulated by them anymore. Free people laugh more than others. Free people see the beauty all around them where others do not. Free people are not afraid to speak the truth. Free individuals are not chained to resentment. Free people walk in the light and refuse to be pulled back into that darkness.
