We often find it difficult to forgive the Wizards, or in our situations, the religious leaders that deceive us. Perhaps it is easier for me to forgive because I was one of them, and I suppose in some ways I’ve set myself up once more for scrutiny. I don’t want to be judged. I’m doing the best I can. I no longer believe I have all the answers, and I freely admit that some of the answers I think I have might be wrong. That’s why Stone Three is so important to our spiritual health.
We no longer depend on one person or one religion to provide all the answers. We accept that our path home is ours to find and walk. We weigh all advice and wisdom against other advice and wisdom, and we discern what works best for us.
At some point, however, we must address what we will do with the wizards of religion. Shall we slay them or forgive them. Holding grievances will only hold us in prison. Releasing grievances will set us free to love and be loved. That doesn’t mean we have to return to their tutelage. We see the wizard for what he or she is. A man or a woman, but, so are we. I also find it helps to remember that wizards can be redeemed.
