Making amends isn’t about saying sorry. It’s about tracing our path backwards and finding the point where we broke from something. Sometimes it’s from ourselves, from a way we could have treated another, from God or whatever we choose to hold sacred.
We go back to that point and meet the one that we lost - a lost part of ourselves or a relationship with another. We cannot remake the past, but we can offer to walk forward together with a clear understanding and acceptance of the twists and darknesses around us.
Sometimes all we can offer in the dark is another groping hand, striving for the light.
