From Daniel Scranton’s blog post, “The Most Important Question” who’s blog I follow at http://danielscranton.com:
“…there is only one question that is ever worth asking. That question is, ‘What is the way that I can be the Love that I know I truly am in this moment?’ “
Okay, it’s easy to love loveable, likeable, and even neutral people in our lives, but what about the pesky narcissists who have put us through the ringer? Sociopaths? Evil people?
“When you let go of all of the other questions that you’ve been asking yourselves, it is quite liberating. It is so much simpler and easier for you to just look to Love to be the answer.”
“No matter what the situation, there is a loving response, even if that loving response is showing yourself the Love that you are and giving yourself that Love. You will always know what to do when you ask that question and when you check in with your heart for the answer. Second-guessing only occurs in the mind. So when you go with your gut and you follow your heart, you give your mind a much-needed rest and you allow yourselves to fulfill that ultimate purpose.”
In a situation with a narcissist, the “loving response” would be to show myself love? Not them? I’m not saying the quote was meant to address my question, but I can’t come to an answer from the post, which I want desperately to understand and believe. Despite my deep hatred for the narcissist in my life, I was raised to believe that everyone deserves forgiveness, even the [throat clearing reluctance] most egregious among us.
Is this clear to anyone? Is it me? Maybe you could read his post and explain it to me? Maybe I should ask Daniel Scranton directly if he can help me out?
