PONDER on THIS for Monday, February 9th, 2009 by Marianne Williamson in EVERYDAY GRACE

“According to A Course in Miracles, our job is to tell someone they’re right, even when they’re wrong. That doesn’t means we’re supposed to lie. It does mean, however, that it’s always our mission to affirm someone’s humanity, even when we’re disagreeing with his or her perceptions. Our spiritual challenge in any situation is to first recognize a person’s love and innocence, and then to speak from that perspective. For it is not our disagreements that wound; it’s our criticism, attack, and blame that wound. Until we know we’re on loving ground – past the temptation to even subtly blame – we had best be very careful with what we say and how we say it. Some words cut, while others heal.”

Marianne Williamson, in “Everyday Grace”
