Forgiveness Mantra

The Mystery within...
I have a friend, Karen, who is in an exercise class with me.  She shared the following simple mantra that she says to herself when feeling challenged by people being difficult.    

“I forgive you ___(name)_____for not being the person I want you to be.  I forgive you.  I set you free.  I set me free.” 

I started a search of my blog with the word forgiveness and stopped counting the number of posts that came up.  Karen’s simple short mantra seems to summarize it all.

What if we understood it really is all about forgiveness?
