WRONGLY ACCUSED Wrongly accused of a crime, you stand in shame and rage: anger eats at your heart; instinctively, you seek to lash out in justified self-righteousness. But the lesson's intent is to transmute those thoughts; to fill the spinning emptiness– the vortex of this terrible rage– and find peace in acceptance. The perpetrator is out there, somewhere, he remains free to walk the streets and only you know he is guilty. You are his only way out of punishment and for reasons without reason: are you a scapegoat...or a saviour? If in this awareness you sit quietly, not speaking with bottled rage, but calm and serene of heart, the engulfing wrath may well pass through the long, lonely nights ahead. So shall your accusers pass through this new-found life: mere shadows in the light of your day, and the one whose chains you bear may become a loving friend, a life’s companion, in light of your understanding.
