Lesson 72

Holding grievances is an attack on God’s plan for salvation.

This Lesson lays it out for me: grievances are a direct attack on God’s plan. The attributes of God and the attributes of the data are confused.

All the data wants to do is replace God and take over my mind.

When I notice a grievance against another, it is what that person does in the physical that I am noticing. I am seeing the memories replaying in that person and in turn, my memories respond to it.

I do not see the Divine perfection in that person or in myself. I am lost. I am in hell. I see myself as separate. I mistake the body and what the body does for reality and fail to see my brother – you – as he really is.

The trick today is not to identify myself or anyone else as ‘a body’, a biological creature simply wandering about. To do so suggests that God Himself is also ‘a body’, which is clearly ridiculous!

As the Course says, “to be without a body is to be in our natural state.” Now, there’s food for thought!

Today I will lay judgement aside and ask:

“What is salvation, Father? I do not know. Tell me, that I may understand.”

The Course assures me He will answer. I will be determined to hear and if the ego, the data, tries to trick me by saying God would never have anything to say to someone like me, I will immediately clean with the key words of Ho’oponopono:

I love you. I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you.

I am willing to hear today. I am willing to hear the truth. I am willing to put the illusions aside and clean my way back to my true self.

“Holding grievances is an attack on God’s plan for salvation. I love you, I’m sorry, Forgive me, Thank you.”
