“Shut off from your Self, which remains aware of Its likeness to Its Creator, your Self seems to sleep, while the part of your mind that weaves illusions in its sleep appears to be awake. 2 Can all this arise from holding grievances? 3 Oh, yes! 4 For he who holds grievances denies he was created by love, and his Creator has become fearful to him in his dream of hate. 5 Who can dream of hatred and not fear God?”

When I’m really angry or sad or afraid, the anger, sadness, or fear wipe out any thought of God, except for the times I yell “Help!” Even then, I’m not really thinking of God, but just of how I can either fight or flea. What does this have to do with holding grievances? Well, it is thinking I am under attack by someone or something which seems to give me a kind of amnesia of God, at least the Love which God is in Truth. There have been times (rare for me) when I’ve stopped, taken deep breaths, and let the anger, sadness, or fear flow away, leaving space in my mind for peace. May I learn to welcome them more and more.

Blessings,

Mari

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
