The capital importance of forgiveness

Forgiveness is neither a poetic abstraction nor a mere religious rule or moralistic dictum. Forgiveness configures the psychological and spiritual excellence of a state of lucidity and serenity that allows the individual to detach themselves from the idea and feeling of personal attack and, simultaneously, to grant themselves the blessing of detoxification from destructive mental patterns and of detachment from situations, beings or human groupings.

In other words, forgiveness can often be followed by the distancing from people and environments, without, however, implying resentment or ill will toward others, as well as, in its best expressions, it can even manifest contours of compassion for creatures or communities that have shown themselves to be trapped in vicious cycles of unhappiness and malevolence.

Those who do not develop their potential for forgiveness, which is indispensable for life in society, on all scales of intimacy or distance of the ties, seriously compromise their chances of a relatively peaceful and happy existence, drastically reduce their ability to solve problems or manage crises, and psychically become a karmic magnet for attracting new and virtually more complex circumstances of hostility, aggression and suffering to experience, both as a victim and as an agent of evil.
