Amit Ray
“Renunciation is not rejecting the family but accepting the whole world as family. Renunciation is not changing the name or dress. It is changing the attitude towards life. Renunciation is not removing the hairs form the head. It is eliminating the negative thoughts from the mind. Renunciation is not running away from responsibility, doership or fruits of action but it is focusing on the fruits and actions that will bring happiness to the whole world. Renunciation is the ultimate compassion and ultimate forgiveness.”
Amit Ray, Walking the Path of Compassion

“Never be bitter, become better. A testimony is pain that has been reassigned”

Matshona Dhliwayo
“Anger has harmful power,
rage has damaging power,
wrath has deadly power,
and retribution has disastrous power.

Forgiveness has healing power,
vengeance has destructive power,
hatred has limited power,
but love has infinite power.”
Matshona Dhliwayo

Donna Goddard
“You can turn every ugly and damaging drama into a genuine blessing by seeing it differently. No one is suffering on purpose. We learn to give up the pleasure we feel in self-righteously blaming others. Healing happens when we see things differently. The question is: do you want suffering or peace? It's that simple.”
Donna Goddard, Waldmeer

Master Jun Hong Lu

Donna Goddard, Waldmeer

Deborah Bravandt
“Forgiveness has been distorted by religious conditioning. Religion is designed to control your personal authenticity, sovereignty, self empowerment, and check book. So drop all ideas of bending your knee to an entity that needs your worship as worship is parasitical.”
Deborah Bravandt

Andrew Lutts

Andrew Lutts, How to Live a Magnificent Life: Becoming the Living Expression of Higher Consciousness

Andrew Lutts

All things are cleared up between us, now and forever.”

“People act out what they see.”
Bert McCoy

“I didn’t set out to commit a crime. I certainly didn’t set out to hurt anyone. When I was working at Enron, you know, I was kind of a hero, because I helped the company make its numbers every quarter. And I thought I was doing a good thing. I thought I was smart... but I wasn’t. I wake up every morning, and I take out my prison ID card, which I have with me here today. And it makes certain that I remember all the people. I remember that I harmed so many people in what I did. It encourages me to try to do the little things that I can to make amends for what I did.”
Andrew Fastow

Deborah Bravandt
“Forgiveness is difficult to create in a world of cyclical cruelty. Transmutation is ideal as it creates equilibrium. Transmute all offending connections to people who have labeled you as inferior. Let go. See yourself as a person of great worth. Above all, love yourself.”
Deborah Bravandt

Andrew Lutts
“Forgiveness is not about making others wrong and then, from our enlightened superior place, forgiving them. It’s about removing our projections of guilt onto them.”
Andrew Lutts, How to Live a Magnificent Life: Becoming the Living Expression of Higher Consciousness

Geoffrey Neil
“Dressing up forgiveness to look comfortable does nothing more than save face. Forgiveness is a one-sided gift to the abuser and a self-inflicted punishment for the victim. Standing up for oneself by forcing repayment of debt makes a person whole and sets them free. Payback fully satisfies Newton’s Third Law of Motion.”
Geoffrey Neil, Prey for Us

Geoffrey Neil
“Religious people forgive only because they trust that sweet revenge is deferred until judgment day. They conjure up satisfying fantasies about watching God settle the score on their behalf. They find comfort in the biblical assurance that they’ll one day watch the agony of their enemies as a reward for denying themselves the satisfaction of taking immediate revenge.”
Geoffrey Neil, Prey for Us

“If you love, don't keep past mistakes! The love's proof is forgiveness.”
Bruce Mbanzabugabo

Jacqueline Edgington
“You have to forgive yourself. Everyone does something that needs forgiveness. It’s impossible to live a life where you don’t have to say you’re sorry. But the most important person to say sorry to is yourself.”
Jacqueline Edgington, Happy Jack

Matshona Dhliwayo
“Forgive your brother,
and you can forgive your friend.
Forgive your friend,
and you can forgive your neighbor.
Forgive your neighbor,
and you can forgive your lover.
Forgive your lover,
and you can forgive your enemy.

Forgive your neighbor,
and you will be rewarded greatly.
Forgive your friend,
and you will be rewarded incredibly.
Forgive your lover,
and you will be rewarded immeasurably.
Forgive your enemy,
and you will be rewarded infinitely.”
Matshona Dhliwayo
