Eric Ball: feels that the resistance to forgive is an attachment to the need to be right. When we lack the capacity to forgive others, it is an indication that we also find it difficult to forgive ourselves. The power of forgiveness is liberating, because it allows the flow of good into your life.
I found this on facebook and decided to quote it. Forgiveness and acceptance of the past comes up a lot in our practice, in one way or another. From time to time we also encounter perfectionism of a variety which is crippling, to the point of paralysis for some. We all have standards, and that's a good thing. But the choice of accepting the flow of life can really get dammed up when judgment is too harsh.
