The more I know, the less I understand. All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning again. I’ve been trying to get down to the heart of the matter, but my will gets weak and my thoughts seem to scatter but I think its about forgiveness. These times are so uncertain. There’s a yearning undefined. People filled with rage. We all need a little tenderness. How can love survive in such a graceless age? Ah, the trust and self-assurance that lead to happiness. They’re the very things we kill, I guess. Oh, pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms. There are people in your life Who’ve come and gone, they let you down, you know they’ve hurt your pride. You better put it all behind you baby, ’cause life goes on. You keep carryin’ that anger, It’ll eat you up inside.
These lines are lyrics taken from Don Henley’s song,
The Heart of The Matter.
I know that this is true. Forgiveness is the only way to set your heart free. No matter what has happened between two people, forgiveness must happen for your soul to feel peaceful. I am guilty of not forgiving a few people and it causes unrest for me. It doesn’t do anything to them. It sounds easy, but let’s face it, forgiveness is not always easy. I often hear people say that someone does not deserve forgiveness because of what they did. I am learning that the person who deserves to forgive them is me. I deserve to live in peace, not hurt or anger. As long as we hold on to the past, we are holding up our future. I think Don Henley was on to something years ago when he wrote that song. I am going to pick someone to forgive this week. Not for them, but for me. It’s the heart of the matter.
Have a listen. It’s a good one!
