A Path to Forgiveness: 7 Steps

I'd like to encourage anyone who wishes to become a unit of peace in the world to consider walking the path of forgiveness, and so as a practical matter, let me simplify it--in essence, the following things are necessary.
  1. Find your own peace through meditation, yoga, or other contemplative practice.
  2. Renounce the illusion that you can change someone else's morality or worldview.
  3. Know that you can do more to change the world by who you are than by anything you can say or teach.
  4. Take responsibility for nonviolence in your speech and actions.
  5. Address the issues of judgment, blame, and anger in yourself.
  6. Associate with like-minded people who are committed to peace and forgiveness.
  7. Adopt a vision of the highest possibilities for humankind.
