Compassion & Forgiveness

“Compassion, Forgiveness, these are the real, ultimate sources of power for peace and success in life.” – Dalai Lama

Think of the angriest, the saddest, the most unsuccessful person you can. Isn’t it evident that they are holding onto some grudge? Being unforgiving is a lot of hard work – why should we waste our precious energy with it?
It seems that the happiest people in life tend to be the most forgiving. Recently I was reminded of a few powerful words from a mentor of mine: “Let it go.” The ability to let things go, to forgive, to have compassion for what others are going through is an awesome and powerful thing. Imagine what we could accomplish if we all could develop a “let it go” type of attitude?
