From suricattus and deborahjross. And me. On this Yom Kippur:
If, in the past year, I have caused you pain or hurt, either intentionally or unintentionally, I apologize, and I ask your forgiveness. May there be peace between us.
If, in the past year, you have caused me pain or hurt, either intentionally or unintentionally, I let go of any grudge or resentment. I forgive the harm, I let go of the hurt. I am at peace with you.
May we be released from all vows made to ourselves, or with our god, that proved impossible to keep, from all promises attempted but unfulfilled. May we be at peace with ourselves.
May we all “return” to the peace that is our natural state, individually and collectively.
