Recently, I met a lovely young lady who wanted to learn some asanas (yoga postures). One day, I noticed that she was not her normal self. When I asked her if she was okay, she opened up and told me about the difficult situation with someone at work. Initially, this person had been friendly with her, but was now very hostile and was causing trouble for her. This situation was affecting her a lot. We had a chat, and to help her calm down, I offered to meditate with her on forgiveness and peace. This was her very first attempt at meditation. After she left, I said a small prayer for both of them because the situation had become rather difficult.
I saw her after a couple of weeks and asked how things were with her. With a big smile, she replied that the person concerned had called to apologize for all the pain he had caused her, promised to respect her henceforth and wanted to work with her amicably. She was amazed at how well everything turned out. We were pleased that now she could face her day with smiles.
Forgiveness is powerful and can transform everyone concerned.
