Turning the Other Cheek

 (The following is excerpted from Dr. Husfelt’s forthcoming book The Greatest Lie Ever Told - a Manifesto for a Religious Revolution and a New Consciousness)

Practicing ‘turning the other cheek’ will help us release the past and detach from any fear that the same person or situation will harm or wound us again. The practice of ‘turning the other cheek:’

·         Pick a small wounding with a person that recently happened and that you are still holding onto. Drop a Stone based on this wounding.

·         After the stone is dropped and the wounding released, talk truth to the person. This dialogue may open up the reasons for the wounding. Keep talking and let the person know that you were hurt through their words or actions. Establish or re-establish harmony with the person.[i] (If the wounding is great or the person is no longer alive, in your presence or practical to see them face-to-face, you still need to talk your words of power to some object that represents the person or write the words and then burn them to release the words. This is to release the fear that the wounding will be repeated. However, part of the healing and learning process is understanding through dialogue the reasons for the actions of yourself and the other person.)

·         As completion, release any fear that the person will wound you again by symbolically turning your other cheek.

 

Making the practice of ‘turning the other cheek’ a second attention will strengthen our mind and establish an inner peace and harmony. This type of detachment is of the past weeks, months and years. However, to awaken and to have a strong mind, the idea is to be able to detach at the end of the day. This is a detachment to all the things that caused a disturbance within our mind through forgiveness. In this way we will be less stressed, healthier and sleep soundly.



[i] If the wounding is great and harmony is unable to be established then clearly state that you are no longer in relationship with them but bless them for listening to your words and feelings. This will release fear and possibly break a pattern that may be happening to you over and over again.
