Example text

33 ii How to forgive a murderer? First, by differentiating his sufferings from his exploitation of death to ease them. For his sufferings — greed, jealousy, frustration — he will need reeducation, support, and compassion. For our outrage about murder, we need to examine deeply our faith in death. As long as we collectively believe that death has power over life, we will spawn deluded, self-appointed little gods who want that power. 34 If you want to be merciless, be merciless against the temptation to blame.

This is the work you chose for yourself when you attacked. It only begins with apologies and recompense. 45 ii hen did you decide that you had the power to ruin your whole life? How do you know how much healing is possible? Are you in charge of all creation? Are you calling all the shots? W f When I began to understand how arrogant it was to believe that I was deeply flawed and doomed to frustration, I was chagrined in a way I had never felt before. What was new was that this particular chagrin did not add to my burden of shame, but only helped dissolve it.

This is the most important work I have ever done on my own behalf. In retrospect I marvel at the victory I was earning during the time that I felt I was suffering a total, grinding defeat. 42 Begin with the dull ache of a long-held shame. Don't try to argue away its justification; you've lost that argument many times already. Accept that your shame has helped make you who you are. Then compare your present sense of self to your sense of who you could be, who you've always wished to be, who you were born to be before you collided with the inevitable limitations and contradictions of this world.
