Taking the Blame

Even when someone I have helped,
Or in whom I have placed great hopes
Mistreats me very unjustly,
I will view that person as a true spiritual teacher.

I can’t go into the details here, because after writing it out I decided to to delete it as I feel it would shame the person who taught me a great lesson in khanti parami this weekend. Suffice it to say that accepting blame for a situation and regarding truly difficult people as spiritual teachers is much more challenging than I ever imagined but thank goodness for these teachings. Without them things may very well have taken a turn for the worst and I don’t know what would have happened.
