My favorite Lesson in the Workbook of A Course in Miracles is #68. It’s so beautiful, clear and powerful. Working with it every day has been so healing for me. Every time I feel pulled to cherish some grievance, the simple name of this lesson pulls me back. See what YOU think:

Love holds no grievances

You who were created by love like itself can hold no grievances and know your Self. To hold a grievance is to forget who you are. To hold a grievance is to see yourself as a body. To hold a grievance is to let the ego rule your mind and to condemn the body to death. 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. Today we will try to find out how you would feel without them. If you succeed even by ever so little, there will never be a problem in motivation ever again.

    Thank you Jennifer for such lovely prayers and reminders. It always seem so simple and makes sense to me intellectually to practice ACIM principles of love and forgiveness. However, it’s important for me to retain this teaching in my heart and to practice, practice, practice.

    When something seemingly stressfull appears in my life it’s too easy to be forgetful and with daily practice I get to remember and really do the walk not just the talk. Just remembering lesson #68 “Love Holds No Grievances” helps me to remember why I am really here when faced with lessons in life.
