Power of forgiveness


“If a soul, knowing another soul has wronged it, forgives that soul and holds no lingering resentment … then one begins to receive mercy and forgiveness upon oneself. Now … if the purpose for forgiving another is simply to obtain forgiveness for oneself, then little is gained. But if one truly forgives … by understanding, through empathy and compassion, then there is no way one can avoid receiving forgiveness.”

— John Van Auken, referring to the Edgar Cayce material,
