Please forgive me for any harm I may have caused you,
consciously or unconsciously, through my thoughts,
my speech or my actions.

I forgive you for any harm you may have caused me,
consciously or unconsciously, through your thoughts,
your speech or your actions.

This prayer traditionally starts with oneself, then a benefactor
and people who are easy to love, a neutral person
and then to a difficult person.

The invitation with this prayer is to include awareness of arising sensation,
feeling and thoughts as you contemplate forgiveness.
