"Forgiveness is one of the most misunderstood concepts. The true meaning of forgiveness is to “set free,” yet most people simply do not understand who they are setting free when they forgive. They think that by forgiving someone who has harmed them, they are somehow setting that person free from responsibility or letting them off the hook. This simply is not correct.
In the Bible you find the statement:
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord (Romans 12:19).
This simple statement refers to a cosmic law which is only partially explained in the Bible. In eastern religions this law is called the law of Karma, and by science it is known as the law of action and reaction. Everything you do is done with God’s energy. When you harm another person, you are misqualifying a certain amount of God’s energy. God has created an impersonal law which insures that any impulse of misqualified energy you have ever sent into the universe will be returned to your lifestream. In other words, no lifestream can ever escape the consequences of its actions. Most Christians do not understand the ramifications of this law, and the main reason is that my teachings about karma and reincarnation were deliberately removed from Christianity.
