Forgiveness is a shift in perception which removes a block to the awareness of Love's presence.
To not forgive is to drink a little poison each day and expect the other person to die. Forgiveness is a cleansing of our mental field. It cleanses misperceptions and puts us in a higher vibration.
You and I have the power to charge every experience with an opinion and we can decide whether something is 'good' or not. When we claim something is 'not good,' we have simply removed ourselves from the opportunity to transform that experience, claim its good and use that good as a lever for our ever-upward movement in the spiral of becoming.
Remove the negative charge, shift your perception and the good that is ever-present in this life experience can make itself known.
