traditional forgiveness should not be seen as being inferior to radical forgiveness. It is simply different when used in the context of a certain set of beliefs beliefs that are firmly rooted in the physical world and in everyday human reality. Traditional forgiveness is the only form of forgiveness possible and has great value in its own right. It calls upon the finest of human qualities and characteristics such as compassion, mercy, tolerance, humanity and kindness. Joan Borisenko in Guilt is the teacher. Love is the lesson. Warner Books 1990 calls forgiveness the exercise of compassion. Radical forgiveness is different from traditional forgiveness because it is rooted in the metaphysical reality of the world of spirit, that which I call the world of divine truth. This makes the distinction between radical and traditional forgiveness very clear, because we can see now than in each case we look through completely different lenses. The lens we're using to view a situation will determine whether we're using traditional forgiveness or radical forgiveness. Each one provides us with a totally different point of view, but we should not fall into the trap of thinking of it in terms of either or it is a both and situation. This is because we live with one foot in each world since we are spiritually beings having a human experience and can therefore reference situations through either lens or both lenses. At the same time, while being fully grounded in the world of humanity, we remain connected to the world of divine truth through our soul.
