Mindfulness Mondays 62: Forgiveness
August 2, 2010 by Dr. Lam
I watched the movie Invictus and was moved profoundly by Nelson Mandela’s quote: ”Forgiveness liberates the soul. It eliminates fear. That is why it is such a powerful weapon.” He said that in the movie when his bodyguards were angry about his hiring the old Apartheid bodyguards to help him in his administration. Mandela, after 27 years in hard labor and solitary confinement in a small dingy room, gave absolute forgiveness to his captors. Can we do the same?
