They say that as we age, we become more forgiving. Perhaps that is because we have more to forgive in ourselves. We have walked in many shoes during the course of our lifetime. A zen master once said that the life of a zen master is one mistake after another. Of course that is true for not just zen masters, but for all people. Some mistakes are quickly forgotten and some linger for a lifetime; a missed opportunity, something we should have said or done or something we did and shouldn’t have done. The important thing though is not focus on those, but focus on what is in front of you now, and make the most of it.
