“Evade every influence that keeps you frozen in the past. ” ― Rob Brezsny
I’m in Seattle this weekend giving a couple playshops at East West Bookshop so I’m going to make this quick.
If you haven’t heard of this inspiring little bookshop, let me just say it’s a nonprofit (I love when money isn’t the prime objective) and it’s run by members of the Seattle Ananda community who follow the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. His book Autobiography of a Yogi is a spiritual classic. In fact, if you click here, you can read a post I wrote about Paramahansa when he was just starting out.
But we’re here to talk about A Course in Miracles.
ACIM Lesson 68 (Love holds no grievances) is an extremely potent lesson. It says I can’t really know my full beautiful loving self if I hold grievances. It tells me in no uncertain terms that any of my ‘he done me wrong’s, any of my ‘life’s not fair’ clog up the pipes of the badass I really am.
But to make it really clear, I’m going to tell you a story Eckhart Tolle once told, “If we had little cameras inside our bodies that showed us what happens when we held grievances, we’d never have a grievance again.”
Talk about a mike drop.
Well, as Arnold would say, “I’ll be back.”
Love, only love,
Pam who is sorta sleepless in Seattle
