ART OF FORGIVENESS
The Art of Forgiveness means letting go of the hope for a better past, so you can have a better present.
Forgiveness is letting go of negative emotions such as anger and vengefulness. Forgiveness is not condoning, excusing, or forgetting the offense, it is setting yourself free. Making peace with the past so you can live in the present.
Understanding the Ancient Hawaiian Practice of Forgiveness, Ho'oponopono
I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you.
On the surface level, many people have understood ho’oponopono to be a mantra where one repeats the words ‘I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you’ as a form of mental and spiritual cleaning that could be compared to Buddhist techniques for clearing karma. It has been defined as a forgiveness and reconciliation practice, cleansing of ‘errors of thought’ – the origin of problems and sickness in the physical world, according the the Hawaiian worldview. The literal translation is ‘to put to right; to put in order or shape, correct, revise, adjust, amend, regulate, arrange, rectify, tidy up, make orderly or neat.” Ho'oponopono can help restore harmony within, and with others.
