“Whenever you are angry, know you’re hurting yourself. Ask for a healing. Ask to experience your own angelic nature, that you might see beyond someone else’s behavior to the angel, however wounded, within them. Given the unity of all minds, what we do to others, and what we think about others, boomerangs back to us. If we wish to feel peace, then we must wish peace for others. And whatever punishment we wish upon others, we subconsciously attract to ourselves.
Withholding judgment is a powerful wand, because often people show us what we invite them to show us: If I respond to your guilt, you will tend to show me more of it. If I approach you with a critical attitude, then I’m more likely to get a response from you that seems to prove my point. Yet if I respond to your innocence, you’ll tend to show me that, as well. Our focus on the good in someone else, regardless of whether or not our ego thinks they “deserve” it, casts a mystical light on any relationship.”
Marianne Williamson, in “Everyday Grace”
