Question: They say that happiness is in forgiveness. What is forgiveness in Kabbalah? Do we need to forgive and if so, in what situations?
Answer: There is no forgiveness in Kabbalah. If you understand that something bad has happened but you forgive everything, then you postpone the resolution of the conflict, covering it up as if it does not exist.
Thus, you make our state even more critical. Therefore, forgiveness fails to resolve conflict. Next time it will “jump out” with even more force. Conflict is resolved only in the middle line.
