The Field

We can spend a lot of energy in our lives blaming other people. It can be hard to  let go of past hurts, to stop blaming. 

But imagine if there was a place where nobody apportions blame, where we can simply be. 

Rumi the 13th century Persian poet described such a place with these words;

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.

So imagine that you in that field.

Somebody is coming to join you. It may be someone with whom you have a history, some deep hurt. 

But here you both are in this beautiful field out beyond all ideas of right doing and wrongdoing.

What is it you would like to say to this person? What is their reply?
