The Miracle of the Heart

Someone recently asked, "How do we overcome our pride in order to forgive another person?"

In my experience, we begin by loving and accepting even our pridefulness for this is the pathway of true compassion. Moreover, as we welcome the messiness of our own shortcomings, whatever they might be, we open a gateway to self-forgiveness. From this vantage point, there is no longer "other," and the essence of our Oneness can be seen finally and completely. This beautiful invitation to inner peace is the miracle of the Heart.
