Spiritual Practice this week:

This week has the easiest instruction but the hardest actions. You will need multiple sheets of paper and three envelopes. Go back to the dependencies you named in week one. How have they affected other people?

Make a list of the person harmed by your shortcomings.

Pick up two people to write letters to. If it is possible, and it would not injure them, send them the letter when you are ready. The third letter is to yourself.  Write a letter to yourself and forgive yourself as well. This may be the hardest part, and you may not be ready to send the letters yet but pray on step ten until you are able to do so.
