Keys to this Lesson
If we were created like Love then we can hold no grievances.
When we hold a grievance we forget Who we are.
When we hold a grievance we are allowing the ego’s fearful thoughts to take hold of our mind.
We may not understand what holding a grievance does to us.
Not only does it bring us suffering but we are then denying that we were created by love.
When we hold grievances, deep down we are suffering guilt.
If we forgive then we will find the peace that we seek.
That is what Jesus offers us today.
If have a little motivation today you will find the peace that you can have when you let your grievances go.
Longer practice period is 10-15 minutes.
Search your for those people with whom you hold major grievances.
Some will be easy to find, others may not.
You might even find you have grievances against those you like or love.
You will soon be aware during this practice that there is really no one that you do not hold some sort of grievance against.
Determine to see all of these people now as friends.
As you think of each person, say to them all
I would see you as my friend, that I may remember you are part of me and come to know myself.
Spend the remainder of the time thinking of yourself completely at peace with everyone and everything, safe in a world that protects you and loves you, and that you love in return.
Feel the safety surrounding you.
Try to believe that nothing can harm you in any way.
In ending the practice, tell yourself:
Love holds no grievances. When I let all my grievances go I will know I am perfectly safe.
Shorter practice periods
Use the following whenever you think of a grievance about anyone either physically present or not:
Love holds no grievances. Let me not betray my Self.
Also repeat the idea SEVERAL times an hour as this:
Love holds no grievances. I would wake to my Self by laying all my grievances aside and wakening in Him.
