Sounds True and Tara Brach present a 10 day radical compassion challenge.

Today I’d like to offer another perspective. In the interview with Liz, she talks about writing a letter to yourself about what you would like to hear. In my years working with people, I’ve learned that they find this exercise very challenging. The homework today is something that I’ve done in the past and found helpful, since I’m a God follower, is to write a letter from the merciful God in whom I believe. When I write a letter to myself from the forgiving God, I can hear the tender words of encouragement and love. So, if you’re a God follower, maybe try this idea, if you find the letter challenging.

Tara’s meditation made a good point, self blame doesn’t really force us to change. This meditation helped me to take time to investigate my own self blame and begin the process of forgiveness.

What’s your experience like?
