Peace and blessings to you as well.
I personally forgive you, even if I feel within my mind and heart that there is really nothing to forgive... We live, we learn, we grow... Some will make veiled judgment calls about perceived concepts or about other people's spiritual achievements.... It is just the way people's brains tries to make sense of experiences they either cannot understand personally
or simply just do not believe.
We have also found ourselves at loggerheads occasionally and I have been assertive with you, but never did you do or say anything unforgivable. I'm actually quite pleased that you appear to have reached a catharsis... An understanding of your own in these matters and find yourself at peace after such a long time and I am very happy FOR you.
There is a saying by Nisargadatta Maharaj that pretty much sums it up:
"Wisdom is knowing that I am nothing. Love is knowing that I am everything and between the two, my life moves" - Nisargadatta Maharaj.
There is always going to be a duality between which, one's life moves... The way of the head and the way of the heart and no Advaita can change that ....No knowledge or experience can change it, no matter what!
The best anybody can do, is to just live with the mindful awareness of these fluctuations.
So, welcome back my friend. The Hindu forum (and myself) is honoured by your returned presence.
Aum Namah Shivaya
