“… we lift the chains that bar the door to freedom from the world, and go beyond all little values and diminished goals.” A Course In Miracles
I will fly free today.
Grievances keep us in prison. Forgiveness dissolves the bars and lets us fly free.
Think of a canary in a cage. The cage door has always been ajar, but the canary isn’t aware of it. It thinks it is trapped in the cage. Although it longs for freedom it stays inside the cage unaware that there has always been a way out. It stays, not because it is really trapped, but because it believes it is. Our cage door is open. At any time we can choose to surrender the grievances that keep us trapped and fly through that open door and claim our inheritance of peace and joy.
