Letting Go with Guy Finley

Question: If you see something someone else is doing, whether professional or personal, and it involves you and you know it’s not right (and the person that is doing the wrong definitely knows it isn’t right), should something be said, or should you just wait because sooner of later things always have a way of working out for the best?

Answer: As a general rule… if the wrongdoing negatively effects the life of another, or otherwise is immoral or destructive, it is best to make the correction (without being self-righteous, of course). But, if the wrongdoer is just “getting on your nerves,” then use their manifestations by learning to bear in yourself what they stir and reveal there. One must generally realize that what troubles us most about others is what we want from them (or don’t want them to do or be, as it troubles our sense of what’s “right”)… Remember that what is truly right and bright within a person can’t be upset by the darkness in another any more than the sun gets nervous because nighttime on earth approaches.
