Thoughts from the tube...

Yesterday I watched some good quality TV. There was a W-5 documentary on forgiveness. I took away these insights:


  • We can't want happiness, peace and acceptance for ourselves and the others we love without wanting the same for the human race as a whole.

  • To forgive is to acknowledge pain, but not blame.

  • To move on, the full depth of loss must be felt.

  • The only way to fully heal is to embrace grief.

  • It's important to remember the people who were loved and their lives more than circumstances surrounding how they passed.

  • People we love and lose would not want us to live the rest of our lives full of anger and hurt.

An Oprah episode said the following about parenting:

  • Children don't model what we do to them; they model what they see us doing to ourselves.

  • When we don't love ourselves, children don't learn to love themselves, because they learn by modeling their parent's view of themselves.
