W. W.:“I found Leza’s workshop to be insightful and helpful since I have had many personal occasions where I felt like I held onto a lot of resentments and guilt for my past wrongdoings. In the process of self purification, which included regret, replay, resolve, and replant, I saw that I was still stuck in the replay mode for the past few years over incidents that happened in my past. Although resolution by vowing never to repeat the same mistake again is a natural progression, I noticed that replanting a different seed is often the most difficult since doing something “kind” for the other may sometimes appear as if there is a desire for forgiveness from the other. This is where I often find myself stuck because I don’t want the other to think there is an ulterior motive for my sincere actions and apologies. I also know through experience that forgiveness doesn’t come easily, and there can be a selfish desire for the other to forgive, which would be insincere. I hope that I can live from now on with a more humble and polite, respectful manner to those around me and be sensitive to the social atmosphere around me. I realized that I have had a very disrespectful and angry attitude towards the world around me and, as a result was a target to the hostility of others, even though I should have realized and understood that I was the source of all my problems. I hope to take this lesson and workshop to heart and integrate its teachings in my daily life so that I may live a more honest and sincere life.”
