‘The Book Of Joy’

I’m reading “The Book of Joy” by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama. There is so much that is consistent with Imago theory and practice. Here is a quote

“Our almost natural response is, When I’m hit, I hit back. When you have been refined, you want to find out what it is that impelled this other one to do what he did. And so you put yourself in the shoes of the other.”

I am struck (pun intended) by how well Imago gives us the tools to do that, even when it isn’t easy.
