Forgiveness is realizing that what you thought happened, didn’t.

I love this quote of BK's. Thanks for sharing it :)
It brings to mind so many other related quotes/thoughts, such as Kundera's assertion (in The Book of Laughter and Forgetting) that to perceive is to mis-perceive -- which seems to hold true esp. in human relations. And Adyashanti's assertion that "there is no such thing as a true thought". That one is heavy!
