Today, let go of blaming particular individuals. People are more complex than we realize, with so many forces shaping them (history, education, culture, family, peers, religion, biology, memories, emotions). This does not mean that we do not take a stand for justice or our highest understanding, but it does mean letting go of blaming, gossiping, and obsessing over other's actions. Today, ask and listen for wisdom, strength, and kindness in handling the conflicts in our lives.
