As children we learn to "keep score." When someone hits us, we hit right back. And when we don’t, we keep a running tally of punches owed. As adults, we’re no different. It’s our nature to hold on to the slights. But keeping score is not up to us and it’s not up to us to dole out rewards and punishments. It’s up to the Light. We have a limited time in this world. Why waste it hording hatred and resentment?
The lesson for today is simple: Let it go. When you find yourself stuck in anger, practice thinking or saying, "Next. Next. Next." It’s a powerful four-letter word……and a lot nicer than some others I can think of.
