Today's review lesson reminds you that you are a being created with the very breath of God. Living as a creation in the likeness of God, you can become free from holding any grievance. As you realize a grievance is a function of the ego and not a function of your likeness to God, you learn not to attack others or yourself by holding grievances.
Love created me like itself.
I am in the likeness of my Creator. I cannot suffer, I cannot experience loss and I cannot die. I am not a body. I would recognize my reality today. I will worship no idols, nor raise my own self-concept to replace my Self. I am in the likeness of my Creator. Love created me like itself.
You might find these specific forms helpful in applying the idea:
Let me not see an illusion of myself in this.
As I look on this, let me remember my Creator.
My Creator did not create this as I see it.
Love holds no grievances.
Grievances are completely alien to love. Grievances attack love and keep its light obscure. If I hold grievances I am attacking love, and therefore attacking my Self. My Self thus becomes alien to me. I am determined not to attack my Self today, so that I can remember Who I am.
These specific forms for applying this idea would be helpful:
This is no justification for denying my Self.
I will not use this to attack love.
Let this not tempt me to attack myself.
