If you have truly forgiven someone, you will remember the incident, but will no longer feel the sting or hurt.This is the acid test of forgiveness. You must meet it psychologically and spiritual. Otherwise you are simple deceiving yourself. You are not practicing the art of true forgiveness.
To Understand All Is to Forgive All
Once you understand the creative law of your own mind, you stop blaming other people and conditions for making or marring your life. You realize that your own thoughts and feelings create your destiny. Furthermore, you are aware that externals are not the causes and conditioners of your life and your experiences. To think that others can mar your happiness, that you are the football of a cruel fate, that you must oppose and fight others for a living-all these ideas reveal their destructive nature once you understand that thoughts are things.
This principle is clearly set forth in the Bible:
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. (Proverbs 23:7; King James)
The Power of Your Subconscious Mind
Rev. Joseph Murphy
It occurred to me the same thing applies to divorce. You get a divorce, take off the rings, go your separate ways and start a new life. Out with the old family traditions and in with the new. But divorce must be met emotionally, mentally, psychologically and spiritually to move forward. It's called letting go.
