Forgiveness Lecture and Practice

with Master Stephen Co

Tremendous amount of our personal energy supply is tied up in negative emotions such as anger, resentment, and hate. Why? Because it takes a lot of work, attention—and energy—to hold a grudge and stay angry. The chi follows the yi. And if your yi, or intention, is concentrating on harboring old resentments, a good supply of your energy is tied up with maintaining those resentments, too. Some people have been angry for so long and so automatically, they don’t even realize it. But it’s easy to tell when you scan their aura: you feel heavy congestion and/or depletion of the front and back solar plexus and heart chakras. So, to help alleviate some of these negative emotions, we frequently do the following exercise, the Simple Practice of Forgiveness, prior to meditation. And we do it regularly as well because we’re all imperfect, and it’s tough to go through life without getting mad at someone or feeling slighted or resentful. It’s just one more tool to help you keep your energy supply clean and plentiful.
