There once was a woman who was wandering in the desert and was bitten by a poisonous snake. All she could think about was how angry she was at this poisonous snake for biting her – and how angry she was at herself for wandering in the desert. As a result, she could not relax, forgive the snake, forgive herself — thereby freeing her mind to calmly see that she could solve this poison problem and save her life. All she simply needed to do was suck out the poison from her arm, as she’d learned to do years ago—but forgotten because she was grumble-grumble angry. She passed away. The end!
The lesson learned?
Forgiveness is a panacea for what ails you.
