i watched spider-man 3 last night, and took away this: our unwillingness to forgive others indicates an unwillingness to be self-forgiving--that is, we allow little room for the self-imperfections that are the natural flow of life. and to forgive others, we must first forgive ourselves. the process of forgiving ourselves for the (real or perceived) mistakes we've made, allows us to appreciate just how human we truly are. this realization, i think, leads to a better understanding of the imperfections in others, and in turn, frees us from the past.
wisdom is held in all things...even spider-man.
