Forgiving the Unforgivable
The True Story of How Survivors of the Mumbai Terrorist Attack Answered Hatred with Compassion
In November, 2008, Pakistani Muslim terrorists attacked Mumbai. The 5 Star Oberoi Hotel was one of their targets. The Oberoi was also where M.C. Cannon, leader of the Synchronicity Foundation for Modern Spirituality in Virginia, and 24 of his associates were staying. Four in the group were wounded and two were killed. When rescued by SWAT teams and interviewed by the press, Synchronicity survivors expressed immediate compassion and understanding towards the terrorists. During interviews and press conferences following the attack, they repeated words of forgiveness, not accusation. This ignited an international tsunami of stunned curiosity and thousands of e-mail messages and phone calls flooded in. “I am inspired by your response.” “How did you get to be the way you are?” And, “How can I learn to do that?” Forgiving the Unforgivable is a response to those inquiries. Forgiveness is perhaps the most misunderstood (and most urgently needed) human virtue. Consider historic deadlocks like the Middle East conflict, North and South Korea, and the abusive scars of childhood that have rendered millions of individuals unable to forgive and get on with a fulfilling life. This book weaves together a page turning narrative of the Mumbai siege with a revolutionary explanation of what true forgiveness really is and how to live the Holistic Lifestyle in a state of awareness where true forgiveness becomes instinctive.
