    cool fun


    *A friend sent me the following illustration: One of my
    teachers had each one of us bring a clear plastic bag
    and a sack of potatoes. For every person we refused to
    forgive for whatever they did, we were told to choose a
    potato, write on it the name and date, and put it in
    the plastic bag.

    We were then told to carry this bag with us everywhere
    for two weeks, putting it beside our bed at night, on
    the car seat when driving, next to our desk at work,

    The hassle of lugging this around with us made it
    clear what a weight we were carrying spiritually and
    emotionally, and how we had to pay attention to it all
    the time to not forget it and leave it in embarrassing

    Naturally, the condition of the potatoes deteriorated.
    This was a great metaphor for the price we pay for
    nursing our grudges. Too often we think of forgiveness
    as a gift to the other person while it clearly is for

    So the next time you decide you can't forgive someone,
    ask yourself, Isn't your bag heavy enough?
