Letting Go of Pain Inflicted by Others: Forgiveness

Recommended Posts

One day someone throws a stone at you and hits you with the stone.
You ask yourself, “who am I angry with?”
You are quick to respond, “I am angry at that person”
However, it was the stone that hit you… not the person. Why aren’t you angry at the stone?
You think, “I’m not angry with the stone because the stone had no intention to hit me.
The stone is an inanimate object that was thrown by a person. So I am angry at that person”.
Using that logic, you shouldn’t be angry at the person. You should be angry at their pain.
… Because the person is just like the stone. Helplessly thrown by their pain.
