January 15, 2015, Prescott- A little bird told me today, that my trust had been broken, and quite egregiously. Details would only dignify the insult, so I am going to be brief and succinct about the overall picture. The foundation of all relationships is trust. When I have, in the midst of my own suffering and confusion a few years ago, hurt a very dear person emotionally, it took a long time to make amends, and I would not blame my friend if I had been completely cut off. On that occasion, though, I was like a bull in a china shop.
There is a difference when one abuses my trust, and stealthily acts as a Trojan horse, to curry favour with a third party. That sort of misbehaviour only magnifies the matter and amplifies my annoyance. Keener intuition than mine figured it out and let me know. We are advised, in the Baha’i Writings, not to bare our necks to a wolf. So it will be, and I have cut off contact with the individual. Diseased thinking requires quarantine.
