Episode 16: Forgiveness as Science and Art

Many people find it difficult to forgive and see no logical reason for doing so. Mary McGovern interviews Karin Jansson from Sweden after she gave a lecture at the Martinus Centre entitled “Forgiveness as Science and Art”. She describes the process of forgiving with your brain and with your heart, and how it leads to a union with all life.

The idea of forgiveness is essential to Christianity, but Christ didn’t provide any logical explanation for it. Martinus points to non-forgiveness as a very heavy burden that most of us carry with us, a burden that contributes to illness and depression. His world picture helps us to understand the laws of life and why it pays to forgive.

This podcast was recorded by Mary McGovern at The Martinus Centre, Klint, Denmark on 3rd August 2018.

Music composed and performed by Lars Palerius.

Martinus’s literature is available online on the Martinus Institute’s website: The Martinus Institute. Here you can also find information about the international summer courses at the Martinus Centre in Klint, Denmark.
