Zenspirational Thoughts by Gary Simpson

 
ZENSPIRATIONAL THOUGHTS (vol 024-116)
 
Today's zenspirational message is on the concept of forgiveness - something that so many people have great difficulty with.
 
On forgiveness, Isabelle Holland says this: "As long as you don't forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy rent-free space in your mind."
 
Think about that. When those negative hateful thoughts and emotions are running through your mind, who are they hurting? Are they hurting the proponent of them, or are they hurting YOU?
If you cannot forgive then try to lock them in a vault in your mind.
Dwelling on hurt will only bring you more of the same. Can't your mind be more gainfully employed on something that will benefit you? Until next time...
