We all have a past and no matter how enlightened we may be today, I’m sure at some point in time we’ve hurt someone else. Now we are spiritual and we’ve forgiven all the people that have wronged us, but what about the people we’ve wronged? We could apologize and recognize that part we played in the wrong doing forgiving ourselves for the error of our illusions but the other person may not feel the same. They may not be spiritual and choose to hold onto the anger and not forgive or even forgive you and choose not to want to be in your life anymore. The bottom line is you can only control your own thoughts and feelings. You can never change someone else’s opinions of you. You can apologize and own up to your own errors and grow from them. That is all you can ever do from past situations. Part of being spiritual is recognizing this very important fact. Your job isn’t to make them forgive you but to hold a space of forgiveness for them. Maybe one day they will forgive and maybe they won’t but either way hold that space of forgiveness for them. Hold the space of forgiveness for yourself and move on. Sometimes that is the best outcome to any situation.
