Summary
"Sometimes forgiveness can appear unfathomable, unreachable, even just plain wrong. Inspiring Forgiveness throws wide open the doors of possibility within the human heart-through the wise words of philosophers, writers, poets, and great thinkers from across centuries and continent. Each offering can serve as guideposts along the path to bringing greater forgiveness into our lives. Beyond that, this book holds up real-world examples of people whose life was forever changed by forgiveness, including of themselves, from some of the most devastating realities imaginable. Just bearing witness to that can, in itself, be transformative. One wise teacher quoted in this book, Pema Chodron, offers a simple practice for cultivating forgiveness: "First we acknowledge what we feel-shame, revenge, embarrassment, remorse. Then we forgive ourselves for being human. Each moment is an opportunity to make a fresh start." This book is a collection of those moments. The book consists of 12 true stories of people who have endured great pain at the hands of others and have found a way to open themselves to inviting in forgiveness in its many forms. Each story is followed by extraordinary poems that speak to forgiveness as well as a collection of over 100 inspiring quotations"--
