Day 31 – Release the Bonds

Three benefits of releasing the bonds of resentment and self-pity:

To see others’ suffering

To have compassion for others

To have compassion for myself

This month I have spoken of my many failings. It is not wisdom that I speak; it is learning from the pain. It is learning from resenting others and feeling sorry for myself. It is learning, finally, from having the courage to release myself from those bonds.

Let me slip the surly bonds of earth

And fly high, high above

And see, finally, those others still bound.

Let me slip the surly bonds of earth

And feel free to love all my brothers and sisters

Still bound in the fretful lands.
