I think that's hooey. Forgiveness isn't revenge. Forgiveness is enabling someone to wrong you again.

Beautiful answer by "small"! I'll try to give you my own thoughts, though. If you fake forgiveness so that you may take revenge, it's not really forgiveness. If you really forgive the person, it may look like the best revenge, but it's not really revenge. It may make him feel bad, but it's not really doing something bad for him/her, because it might cause this person to think things over and maybe have a change of heart, repent and become a better person. In this case, it's a win-win situation. Consider the energy side of it. Negative feelings like hate, anger etc.. poison your energy body, they make holes in your aura from where more negativity can come in: because of course you attract more of the same qualities as those you have in you. So if you allow yourself to cultivate negative thoughts and feelings, speak negative words and indulge in aggressive actions, then this negativity is fed and becomes bigger and bigger, and draws other such like a magnet. Negative, aggressive people, thoughts and feelings, which may make you sick (psychologically or even physically). This is BAD for you, first of all. So for our own sake, first of all, we should banish negative and aggressive thoughts and feelings. Think that none of us is perfect. Those who are more "bad" are young, inexperienced souls, who haven't had the time to evolve and gain wisdom. Everyone does the best they can. So this "bad" is their best. They cannot do better. We could help them, or at least pity them. The person who treated us badly will get his/her own bad karma and will pay for it in some way. The best way is to forgive and even to send blessings. They, just as the negativity, will come back to us manyfold.

While I understand the marrow of what is being conveyed by that statement, I somehow can not go with it because Forgiveness is the absolute opposite of Revenge...... revenge always ends up in some bitterness and void..... forgiveness is like creativeness..... it creates instead of destroying. Revenge implies our slavery to our own ego whereas forgiveness demands conquest over it.

It is a spiritual principle. for it to really make sense, you'd probably need to have strong faith in God, who said that Vengeance was HIS. But if you really truly forgive someone ,Especially if even THEY think that what they did to you is unforgiveable, it will probably bother them for a long time. they will always wonder how you were able to do so.
