and accepting what has happened,
because it will not change.
Forgiveness is looking at the pain
and learning the lessons it has produced,
and understanding what we have learned.
Forgiveness allows us to move on
toward a better understanding,
of universal love and true purpose.
Forgiveness is knowing that love
is the answer to all questions,
and that we all are in some way connected.
Forgiveness is staring over
with the knowledge that we have gained.
It is saying: "I forgive you and I forgive myself
I hope you can do the same.
