Resentments no more…
“How well do you see the world? Can you hear or see a thing or a person or an idea for what it truly is? Or does everything you perceive pass through a filter? And does that filter change what you see, like light that is refracted after passing through a lens?” ~ Jeremy Statton

The Third Principle:
There Are No Justified Resentments
“Anytime you’re filled with resentment, you’re turning the controls of your emotional life over to others to manipulate . . . Resentments give you an excuse to return to your old ways. This is what got you there in the first place.”
Removing blame means never assigning responsibility to anyone for what you’re experiencing . . . you’re willing to say, “I may not understand why . . . but I’m willing to say without guilt or resentment that I own it, I live with, and I am responsible for, having it in my life.”
Why do this? If you take responsibility for having a resentment, then at least you have a chance to also take responsibility for removing it . . . or learning from it.
Be willing to send the higher, faster energies of love, peace, joy, forgiveness, and kindness as your response to whatever comes your way.
You would rather be kind than right
You have no need to make others wrong or to retaliate when you’ve been wronged . . . Your resentments will destroy you. Resentment lower your energy . . . Its too much work… first, you have to get past blame; then you have to work hard to work to send love rather than anger and resentment to someone that you now have a hate about . . . Become a person who refuses to be offended by any one, any thing, or any set of circumstances.
If you have enough faith in your own beliefs, you’ll find that it’s impossible to be offended by the beliefs and conduct of others.
When you judge another person, you do not define them. You define your-self . . . Stop expecting those who are different to be what you think they should be . . . When you respond with hatred to hate, you’ve become part of the problem, which is hatred, rather than part of the solution, which is love.
Love without resentment — readily offer forgiveness.
Love and forgiveness will inspire you to work at what you are for, rather than what you are against . . . When Mother Teresa was asked to march against the war in Vietnam, she replied, “No, I won’t, but when you have a march for peace, I’ll be there.”
The Wayne Dyer videos that I had put into this and the other posts from this series were removed from YouTube – I am doing my best to replace them when I find suitable substitutes.
Notice when your thoughts drift into the lower energy of ridicule or hate or guilt, and change the thought at that very moment if at all possible. If you’re unable to change the thought, then at least love yourself for what you did accomplish — that is, for noticing.
Thoughts of resentment, anger, and hatred represent slow, debilitating energies that will dis-em-power you. If you release them, you will know more peace.
Practice forgiveness for two reasons . . . 1) let others know that you no longer wish to be in a state of hostility; and 2) free yourself from the self-defeating energy of resentment.
Resentment is like venom that continues to pour through your system, doing it’s poisonous damage long after being bitten by the snake. It’s not the bite that kills you; it’s the venom.
You can remove the venom by making a decision to let go of resentments.
Send love in some form to those that you feel have wronged you, and notice how much better you feel in time — give it the time it deserves — give it until the resentment is lifted; removed; gone.
How much more peace you will have . . . there are no justified resentments if you wish to enjoy inner peace and maximize your success in life.
