One of my favorite lessons in A Course in Miracles is #68 Love Holds No Grievances. I honestly think if you work this lesson for a whole year you’ll be totally transformed.
This lesson tells us “It is as sure that those who hold grievances will forget who they are, as it is certain that those who forgive will remember.”
Forgiveness can seem so difficult, but the key is to realize that forgiveness is non-judgment. If we stay in a dedication to practicing non-judgment then we actually will never have anything to forgive. Forgiveness is releasing attachment to the negative meaning we’ve made of things. It’s releasing the opinion. It’s mind opening and mind-liberating.
Isn’t it really clear that those who hold grievances have forgotten who they are?
I remember when I had totally forgotten who I AM.
It was so unpleasant.
The more I practice, the more free I feel.
Freedom is good!
Forgiveness = Freedom.
Why would I ever trade my Freedom for an opinion unless I didn’t know what I was doing?
Do you have an opinion you cherish more than Freedom? Is it really worth it?
