Non forgiveness is often towards yourself or another person, but it may just as well towards any situation or condition – past, present, or future – that your mind refuses to accept. There can also be non forgiveness with regards to the future. This is the mind’s refusal to accept uncertainty, to accept that the future is ultimately beyond our control. So forgiveness is to relinquish and so to let go of grief.

It happens naturally once you realize that your grievance serves no purpose except to strengthen a false sense of self. So, forgiveness is to offer no resistance to life – to allow life to live through you.

Eckhart Tolle
from his book, “The Power Of Now”,p.100
