So. How much time to you set aside for mending?
This would be an active process, so a bit different from sabbathing or resting.
It’s perhaps what is sometimes called “The Work”
I think from now on, I might refer to this as “The Mending” — because that is what it is.
In my case, over the last year, I have been in counseling to help process some rage that sprang up. Over the year, I have finally, with lots of work, come to a place of compassion for the offenders. My counselor was necessary in this case, mainly because I knew that I needed someone to gently but quite firmly remind me to do the mending work.
Incorporating mending into your life, I think, takes practice. Diligent practice.
