Today’s review will cover these ideas:
W-pI.85.1. (69) My grievances hide the light of the world in me.
2 My grievances show me what is not there, and hide from me what I would see. 3 Recognizing this, what do I want my grievances for? 4 They keep me in darkness and hide the light. 5 Grievances and light cannot go together, but light and vision must be joined for me to see. 6 To see, I must lay grievances aside. 7 I want to see, and this will be the means by which I will succeed.
W-pI.85.2. Specific applications for this idea might be made in these forms:
2 Let me not use this as a block to sight.
3 The light of the world will shine all this away.
4 I have no need for this. 5 I want to see.
Dear God, I will not give into grievances! There is no grievance that holds any value and though the idea of a grievance may yet enter my mind, there is none I would keep. I pray to always be aware of judgment so that I can release it immediately before it takes hold of my imagination and I start to believe in it. If I do believe in my grievance I pray for clarity and for release. I pray for healing. I have no need for any grievance and I do want to see. Above all else, I want to see.
W-pI.85.3. (70) My salvation comes from me.
2 Today I will recognize where my salvation is. 3 It is in me because its Source is there. 4 It has not left its Source, and so it cannot have left my mind. 5 I will not look for it outside myself. 6 It is not found outside and then brought in. 7 But from within me it will reach beyond, and everything I see will but reflect the light that shines in me and in itself.
W-pI.85.4. These forms of the idea are suitable for more specific applications:
2 Let this not tempt me to look away from me for my salvation.
3 I will not let this interfere with my awareness of the Source of my salvation.
4 This has no power to remove salvation from me.
Some ideas I read in a root cause inquiry by Regina Dawn Akers have been an essential tool for me in my healing. Here are the ones that are most helpful to me.
- “I am always upset because of a belief in my mind”
- Realize this is an interpretation that you put on the story. You are the one that is has decided ‘this event means this about me’. Also realize that you have been teaching yourself this belief for a very long time, interpreting many events to have this same meaning, and that is why it feels so strong in you. It doesn’t feel strong because it is true; it feels strong because it has been heavily reinforced through your interpretation of events.
- If my mind was perfectly healed, nothing would upset me, not even this.
After practicing root cause inquiry using her method for a long time, now, I am clear that my problems are never about anyone or anything outside my mind and therefore, the solution is not outside my own mind. I always look within for my problem because that is where I will find my salvation. I have also seen that nothing in my life has the power to remove salvation from me. If you would like to try this particular tool for getting to the root cause of your problems s they can be healed, here is the link. Happy hunting!
