According to Dr Luskin, forgiveness is one of the tools of Consciousness that allows us to navigate through the storms in life. He is one of the directors of The Forgiveness Project at Stanford University, and has many video talks online in which he teaches the tools of forgiveness and how they allow for a fuller, happier, healthier life.
Below is a short conversation posted by the IONS organization.
“We are the ones who created the lack of peace so we are the only ones who can remedy that situation. Life happened, and then we objected to life. And it was our objecting to our own life, saying “No, this is not the way this life should have been, it should have been that way.” Our objecting to our own life causes emotional, physical, and spiritual turmoil. Forgiveness is the resolution of our objection.”
