CIMS DAILY LESSON
LESSON SIXTY-EIGHTTRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: The Course text is in bold face. The Guidance is in normal type In His Guidance, He has asked Me to capitalize the pronouns You and We as an acknowledgement of the Divinity of All of Us, an acknowledgement of Equality, an expression of His Love and respect for You. When You see the word ‘YOU’ capitalized in the Guidance, know that He is not just speaking to YOU, He is honoring YOU.
Love holds no grievances. Could hot water hold any snow, or would it melt in its beneficial warmth? Just so does the kind warmth of Love melt all grievances to naught. Love, being Real, is the correction for all unreality.
1 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. It is the decision to let the ego rule your mind and to condemn the body to death. Yet the body cannot die for it has no false sense of life to lose. It’s but a misperception of Your mind to see it as a thing. It’s got no more solidity than has Your name.
It simply identifies You. And Identity is permanent, eternal.
2 Perhaps you do not yet fully realize just what holding grievances does to your awareness. It is such an abysmal lack of Love. So unlike God that You forget the Truth of Your Creator. And once forgotten, You experience the separation. It seems to split you off from your Source and make you unlike Him. Yet this cannot be; so Your perception becomes distorted. 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. Life becomes ridiculous as You mis-create Your Creator along with Yourself.
3 Shut off from your Self, Who remains aware of His likeness to His Creator, your Self seems to sleep, while the part of your mind that weaves illusions in its sleep appears to be awake. Yet is the Truth that it is the reverse! 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? For the ego mindset does defend itself by projection, attributing its sins to God and to its ‘sinful’ Brothers, while They are doing but the same to Him.
Each One of You is but starring hero in Your delusions, vanquishing wrongs that have been done to You, winning out above all odds against You. Flash Gordon, Lone Ranger, Indiana Jones, Cat and Wonder Woman all in the sterling hero or heroine You are.
And, of course, a hero or a heroine must have an enemy to vanquish.
4 It is as sure that those who hold grievances will redefine God in their own image – as the enemy, one for them to vanquish, as They think They did by separation. Yet has nothing ever happened, for the sleeping sons keep on being the Son, as it is certain that God created them like Himself – not just like Himself but just as He is – and defined them as part of Him. As much a part of Him, as the Rays are part of the Sun, as are the drops of water of the Ocean. 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. Remember what I said during the crucifixion: “Father, forgive them, for They know not what They do.” There would have been no resurrection without My forgiveness. Would you not be willing to relinquish your grievances if you believed all this were so? Which do You prefer: the human ‘pleasure’ at being ‘right’ or the Peace of God and, flowing from that, Your ensuing and glorious resurrection as the Son of God.
5 Perhaps you do not think you can let all your grievances go. I mean, You know how wrong They are. They should not get off scot free! That, however, is simply a question of motivation. And why should They not? Have You not been wrong. Would You not be glad for the grace that lets You be forgiven? 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. The transcriber is remembering how My help in Her dropping a grievance led to 3-4 days of Heaven, here and now. Grievances do bind Your joy; while forgiveness does release it.
6 Begin today’s extended practice period by searching your mind for those against whom you hold what you regard as major grievances. Some of these will be quite easy to find. Then think of the seemingly minor grievances you hold against those you like and even think you love. It will quickly become apparent that there is no one against whom you do not cherish grievances of some sort. This has left you alone in all the universe in your perception of yourself. And that is lonely. It’s very lonely.
7 Determine now to see all these people as friends. Say to them all collectively, thinking of each one in turn as you do so:
8 I would see you as my friend – even more than friend –
that I may remember you are part of me – We’re not separate. –
and come to know myself. For I cannot know Me apart from Thee!
9 Spend the remainder of the practice period trying to think of yourself as completely at peace with everyone and everything, safe in a world which protects you and loves you and which you love in return. I know these words and the Truth of them Brother, for You have said them to Me before. Now I will to truly make them Mine as well as Yours. For only then will I see, consistently, what is Reality! Try to feel safety surrounding you, hovering over you, and holding you up. Try to believe, however briefly, that nothing can harm you in any way. Yes, like the song: “When at night I go to sleep, fourteen angels watch do keep” and yes, Your Rhode Island song: “Every single breath I take, every single step I make, angels watching over Me.” This song is the Truth for Every One Who is still dreaming. Those angels are not there just to watch but to Awaken You.
At the end of the practice period tell yourself:
10 Love holds no grievances. For It cannot even comprehend them!
When I let all my grievances go,
I will know I am perfectly safe. This is the great promise for You that the Holy Spirit makes.
11 The short practice periods should include a quick application of today’s idea in this form, whenever any thought of grievance arises against anyone, physically present or not:
12 Love holds no grievances.
Let me not betray my Self. In other words, You allow no anger
13 In addition, repeat the idea several times an hour in this form:
14 Love holds no grievances. Grievances do hide My Real Self from Me; and I am left thinking I’m an ego.
I would wake to my Self by laying all my
grievances aside and wakening in Him. And Who is “Him” but My Real God Self, known as Holy Spirit.
[Thank you Dear Brother]
