Letting Go of Hatred and Resentments
The human heart in its perversity finds it hard to escape hatred and revenge. —Moses Luzzatto
program promises many rewards for those who follow it, but it does not
promise to be easy. We search our conscience for resentments and face
them. No man can progress in his recovery while holding onto
resentments, old angers, and hatreds. When we hold them, we protect dark
corners of our souls from the renewal we need. As we allow ourselves to
be made new through this program, we no longer reserve those small
corners for the game of power and resentment. They will eventually
consume us and justify in our minds a return to the old patterns.
Nothing can be held back. We must be willing to surrender all – even if we do not know how. No one can stop being resentful simply by deciding to stop. When we are willing to be honest, to be humble, to be learners, to be led in a constructive direction, to allow time to be guided rather than seek instant cure, then we will learn trust and will surely make progress.
I do not need to know exactly how to let go of my resentments or what will happen after I do. I simply must be ready to let them go.From Touchstones: A Book of Daily Meditations for Men ©1986, 1991 by Hazelden Foundation.
