Anger, Pride (Vainglory), Prejudice-Haters, Gossip, Envy, Greed, Lust & Gluttony, Lethargy – are the Thoughts Rooted & Filtered in the ‘Small Mind’- Forgiveness is a Choice & a Virtue.
Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.’” Matthew 18:21-22.
“For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
The Science Behind Forgiveness:
Forgiveness is a ‘free-will’ choice when a person is in the ‘state of the Small Mind,’ They become blocked in it & they become ‘UNRESOLVED’ – Grief or Trauma (PTSD), (Mortal sin works the same – Confession Resolves) – Broken attachments-Divorce (all life altering trauma) including Insecure Attachment (failure to Bond to a caregiver). Thoughts are filtered with only the ‘Small Mind’ inefficient filters & does not have access to the Autobiographical memory (hippocampus).
An INTENTIONAL ‘PAUSE’ reminds the brain to switch to positive (or also known as the thought being ‘brought to consciousness),’
The brain will then be able to ‘recode chemically,’ the negative thought changed chemically & stored as a ‘positive’ thought in the Autobiographical memory and this ‘resolves” in the autobiographical memory. In the right hand side of the Father in the Right hand side of the right hemisphere.

How the brain heals emotional wounds: the functional neuroanatomy of forgiveness Abstract – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3856773/
In life, everyone goes through hurtful events caused by significant others: a deceiving friend, a betraying partner or an unjustly blaming parent.
In response to painful emotions, individuals may react with anger, hostility & the desire for revenge.
As an alternative, they may PAUSE & CHOOSE to decide to forgive the wrongdoer and relinquish resentment.
In the present study, we examined the brain correlates of forgiveness using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI).
Healthy participants were induced to imagine social scenarios that described emotionally hurtful events followed by the indication to either forgive the imagined offenders or harbor a grudge toward them.
Subjects rated their imaginative skills, levels of anger, frustration, and/or relief when imagining negative events as well as following forgiveness.
Forgiveness was associated with positive emotional states as compared to unforgiveness.
Granting forgiveness was associated with activations in a brain network involved in theory of mind, empathy, and the regulation of affect through cognition, which comprised the precuneus, right inferior parietal regions & the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.
Our results uncovered the neuronal basis of reappraisal-driven forgiveness & extend extant data on emotional regulation to the resolution of anger and resentment following negative interpersonal events. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3856773/
