What is the best way to make up for past wrongs to others (betraying, lying, stealing, etc.)?
All of us have wronged others. Truth be known, until we wake up, we are all — in one form or another — in some kind of wrong relationship in life. That is why the key to correcting what we consider to be a faulty past is to work to be awake in the present. The wrong parts of us want to keep themselves alive by continually dragging before our mind’s eye all that we have been wrong in doing. Then we react to these images and — in one form or another — resist them. All this unconscious act accomplishes is to secretly continue the life of this mistaken perception and the wrong behavior it perpetuates. Drop all of your concerns for what is no longer, and be intent on being conscious of what is before you. This changes things.
