It isn't who you are. If you consider the ego to be your personal problem, that's just more ego." - Eckhart Tolle

"Forgiveness feels most dramatic when some ancient pattern of self-punishment collapses in a torrent of tears.

The beginning of forgiveness is alertness to false ideas." - D. Patrick Miller
