Daily Application of Selected Cayce Readings
If you will meditate the more upon what He gave - love and forgiveness, faith and hope may overcome spites, fears, distrust - you may open yourself to the opportunities that constantly lie before you in your activities in the present.
Based on Edgar Cayce reading 1599-1
As a child, Donald struggled against feeling like a victim. Whenever anybody criticized him, he knew it was all his fault and accepted the blame for what was happening.
His parents tried to explain to him that he didn't have to accept what others said. However, instead of teaching him to tease back or get even, they encouraged him to see the stresses and weaknesses in others that caused their behavior. He could then understand their behavior and be able to release the anger he might be feeling toward them. This would also keep him from blaming himself or the other person.
The big test came when someone stole Donald's bike. At first he was really angry. He wanted to find the kid and punch him out. But he tried to follow his parents' teachings. He tried to understand why someone might steal his bike. Maybe that child really needed one. Maybe that child couldn't afford one and thought he had to have one.
After he calmed down, he tried to find out who had taken his bike. He couldn't. However, his parents' teachings helped him to let go of his anger. He finally reached a point where he didn't blame himself or anyone else and was able to focus his energy on other things in his life.
APPLICATION: The next time someone speaks unjustly about you or treats you unfairly, take time to try to understand why that person did this. See if this helps you handle your anger.
