Seeking Forgiveness
It is very important to seek forgiveness quickly when we do
something wrong. Sometimes I find myself, after having uttered
words of mindless anger, being too proud and heated to admit my
mistake despite the awareness of it. I might fume on a while
silently, all the while in no mood to say sorry. After a while,
the whole incident is forgotten and the "usual" relationship with
the other party resumes. This is most unhealthy if it happens
again and again-even if there is a long time gap in between.
Because there will be an "echoing" negative karmic (of karma)
imprint in the minds of both parties. The damage, no matter how
little, by the wrong action, is done. And the fact that the
damage was not properly resolved is like an evil seed that might
grow into something terrible in time to come. For the wrong-doer,
it might grow into a long-term guilt complex. For the wronged, it
is a scar within that threatens to reopen once provoked again. We
all don't readily forget the unpleasant. And we don't easily
forget even after there is forgiveness. As we are shaped by our
karmic imprints, seeking forgiveness readily will make one into a
forgiving person himself. One will tend to be free of any subtle
form of guilt. The freedom from a guilty conscience is most
important at one's point of death, as deep regret can often
propel one to a future life of suffering. A karmic imprint is a
karmic imprint, no matter how small. Peace of mind is a forgiven
and forgiving mind. Never underestimate the power of seeking
forgiveness and forgiving others.
