“Perhaps you do not yet fully realize just what holding grievances does to your mind. It seems to split you off from your Source and make you unlike Him. It makes you believe that He is like what you think you have become, for no one can conceive of his Creator as unlike himself.
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. Can all this arise from holding grievances? Oh, yes! For he who holds grievances denies he was created by love, and his Creator has become fearful to him in his dream of hate. Who can dream of hatred and not fear God?
It is as sure that those who hold grievances will redefine God in their own image, as it is certain that God created them like Himself, and defined them as part of Him. It is as sure that those who hold grievances will suffer guilt, as it is certain that those who forgive will find peace. It is as sure that those who hold grievances will forget who they are, as it is certain that those who forgive will remember. Would you not be willing to relinquish your grievances if you believed all this were so? Perhaps you do not think you can let your grievances go. That, however, is simply a matter of motivation.” -Course in Miracles
This thought has been going through my mind for years and BAM HERE IT IS IN WRITING! The idea that Love can do anything else but that has never been answered by many and now I understand why. Following the rules and rituals accepted for so long, the guilt for not believing it brought pain in most of my relationships with everyone including family and friends. I don’t regret anything because I went through 95% of the people I felt anything other than love for and unbelievably it’s still going. It didn’t matter what it was for, who it was, why, if it was on purpose, tradition or betrayal.
The point was every grievance carried an anchor that weighed on me alone because 9 times out 10 the reason is only bothering me and since it is holding only me down; whose responsibility is it to solve and clean the unnecessary BS out? Mine. So like I said the list was really long and I may come up with a few daily, all day – even down to the lady at Dunkin Doughnuts who drew me into her negative morning. As I manually go through – talk about a relief; each person that reminded me of anything opposite Love still left a choice for me to let it go or continue to harm myself. So here I am at this point where today is important and its easier to deal with because since Love created me then, Love is all I can do – now.
Love Holds No Grievances so if you know me at any point in my life (birth – present) thank you. I released the pain of you, whether you realize the reason or not – don’t matter because Love never makes a mistake so it had to happen to make us who we are right now. I’d rather be lighter and enjoy the life I have than to worry about what upset me because like a poem I wrote a while ago – What for? Love created me and no matter how you justify lies. Love never has to hold grievances – its Love.
