FORGIVENESS

Well its alright riding around in the breeze
And its alright if you live the life you please
And its alright remember to live and let live
And its alright the best you can do is forgive
And its alright even if the sun don't shine
And its alright we're going to the end of the line

Those lyrics which were sung by the Traveling Wilburys some years ago have always rang so true to my way of thinking! Can you imagine a world where everybody could live their life as best they see fit without having to be bombarded by the so called "do gooders" who think their way of living is the one and only right way to live? As long as one lives their life doing the best they know how and it is not hurting anyone else then I say leave em be! Quit trying to "save" them or to change their ways so it then is relevant to their way of living.As the song "The End of the Line" states the best you can do is forgive. So lets all forgive and get on with living life in peace--what do you say?Hope that sounds good to you all. If today you hold any ill feelings toward a fellow human being I would then dare say you are only dying a slow death by allowing any hatred or hurtful feelings to eat away at your soul.Forgiveness, genuine forgiveness, will free your soul and then you may fly. I'd like to share with you now a quote from Martin Luther King Jr.--"We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us." I now leave all you fine folks with thoughts of love peace and forgiveness.

I love that song!! The Traveling Wilburys were great...so many legendary people all in one band..and I so agree with you..I hate it when people won't take a polite 'I'm not interested thanks'...and continue to 'explain' to me how I'm going to hell. It's super annoying. You're right, live and let live!
