I think the single thing I've learned from all the stories is, because they all say the same thing, that if you do not transform your pain, you will probably transmit it, take it into your relationships and your relationship with the world. And that transforming pain can can be many many different ways of doing that. But it seems to me an incredibly humane way of dealing with the kind of suffering that people have to endure. I don't think it's possible to move on and heal if you're trapped in your own pain and if you're locked in by resentment, or grudges or hate. I don't think so, but I think you can move on. I think you can let go. I've known many people have done this. But (there are those) who say I do not forgive. I do not want to forgive. Then you might ask that person what do you mean by forgiveness. And then you can unpick and actually at the end of the day what they are saying is exactly the same as what someone else is saying who says I do forgive. So basically what these stories are they draw a line under the dogma of vengeance. That is what all the stories have in common. And I think that you need to do that in order to forgive.
