Original title: Vergeben lernen. Die Kunst, innerlich frei zu leben
It is bad enough that injustice happens to us. But we dont have to make life worse bycarrying suffered injustice around with us forever. Forgiveness is a timeless tool thats useful for letting go of suffered injustices and opening up our hearts once again.
We need freedom from the reoccurring thoughts about the suffered injustice that we simply cant get rid of. We need release from the painful feelings connected to it.
And we need release from the despair and lack of vision that often follow the suffering of an injustice.
But forgiveness is not always easy. Even people who would like to forgive often don`t know how to do it. For 28 days, this Quadro wants to accompany you on the journey to inner freedom.
Week 1 starts with an explanation of what forgiveness actually is and what it is not. In the second part, the focus lies on the value of forgiveness. The third week deals with attitudes, thought patterns and approaches that can be helpful in the process of forgiveness. The fourth part suggests practical steps for forgiving someone. It provides a kind of roadmap which can help with the practical implementation of forgiveness.
Questions and practical inspirations help you not to get stuck in the theory, but to put what you have read into practice. The Quadro inspires and accompanies you with four impulses per day:
- A concise quote
- Some food for thought
- A provocative question
- A practical activity
If you know the pain of being treated unjustly, this book is the medicine you are looking for. Kerstin Hack does not make the journey toward forgiveness easy, but she does make it practical. I highly recommend Learning to Forgive.
