Un-Forgiveness. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.

There is no upside to un-forgiveness. Forgiveness doesn't mean you are condoning their bad behavior. It doesn't mean they shouldn't be held accountable for their actions. It doesn't mean you are setting yourself up for future victimization. Withholding forgiveness doesn't punish the offender. It actually punishes yourself because it is a form of self-attack and self-sabotage. SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH VIDEO

Survival of the Fittest

I just nominated myself to be a speaker at the next TED Conference. The Theme is "Truth and Dare." The application asked me to explain how my "Forgive To Win!" talk would fit into that theme. This is what I wrote: The Truth: That survival of the fittest, on a global level, no longer means survival of the physically fittest. It means survival of the spiritually fittest. If we are to survive and thrive we must shift from a mentality of judgment, differences, separation, fear, threat and aggression to a mindset of unity, cooperation, compassion, generosity, forgiveness. We must embrace the concept that we are all in this together, that aggression and war are bandaids. They never heal any wounds. The Dare: People need to dare to challenge their fear that love (acceptance, and forgiveness) can't conquer all. It can. It's not easy. But it will be done. One mind at a time.
