Forgiveness And The Violet

It has been said that forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it. It is forgiveness that saves us from the fires of anger, the high cost of having hatred, and the contamination of our spirit. When you forgive, we cannot change what has happened in the past, however we can change what can happen in the future. Forgiveness requires compassion which is one of three treasures mentioned in Tao Te Ching verse 67.
