Praying for Someone Who has Hurt, Wronged, or Betrayed You
This next "Exercise in Being" comes from my watching Oprah's Super Soul Sunday when she was interviewing Marianne Williamson who has extensively studied and applied the concepts in A Course in Miracles.
It's of relevance to me, right now because I am in a situation where someone has hurt me and I am blocked. There have been times before in my life where I have been hurt or betrayed and once I've removed myself from the situation or been removed from it, I have managed to forgive them and move on.
What's different about this time, is that all my efforts to remove myself from the situation have failed, so I haven't been able to use the same pattern I used in the past.
I know this is a different lesson - the lesson of forgiveness at a different level.
In previous lessons I was blocked from forgiving.
In this lesson, I'm blocked from moving.
After seeing Marianne's video I've come to the conclusion that I need to forgive this time, while the situation is still going on, not after it's over.
If you're reading this and saying OK, this sounds like something I need too...
Here's what our homework is...
Our homework is to pray for that person's happiness for 30 days, for 5 minutes a day.
(I didn't say it was going to be easy.)
(But think of this... we're in good company... Oprah needed to do this too!)
But definitely listen to Marianne Williamson telling you to do it.
Here's the video...
