I will go so far as to say that no one has wronged you. This is what you must understand. They have wronged themselves. Who they think they are and what they said to you or did to you have nothing to do with you. You are not less because of them.
It is like this. A driver of a car who does not see you runs his car into yours. It is not personal to you. You happened to be there. This is the true story of how life is in the world. There are drivers who hit other drivers.
When someone is angry with you, it is the same. Even if someone goes out of his way to find you and let you have it, the anger he happens to lash out at you is his anger. His anger belongs to him. It is not meant to be yours.
And the same goes for you, beloveds. You are also a one-man show. The anger you have, the hurt you have, the coldness you feel, are yours. Your reaction is yours. You find justification for your resentment, and yet I will tell you that there is no justification. There is no justification. Because a wrong has been done where you happen to be standing does not justify your resentment.
If the driver of a car hits your car, you don't then ram your car into his. Nor do you think: "He can't do that to me." He did that, but he didn't really do it to you. The driver of the other car is also a one-man show. He didn't see you. It could have been anyone.
Someone else's anger does not come from you. You do not cause it. Their anger was ready to be set off. The same goes for your anger. If you must be angry, be it, and then be done with it, and do not let burning embers of anger be long-lasting. You are meant for greater things than holding a grudge.
Let there be no obstacle to love in your heart. Not one. Free all those who threw their anger or poor behavior at you. Free them. Free the whale of your heart.
You have heard this before: "You only hurt yourself." Whatever you do to another, you do to yourself. If you are a victim, you are a victim of your own reaction. Leave the scene of the crime, beloveds. Get back to the street of love where you belong.
Do not think I am speaking only to others. I am speaking to you. I am speaking to you with all the love in My heart. I am asking you to abandon any feelings in your heart that are not love. They have been there long enough. Any feelings in your heart that are not love are barriers to yourself. Take down the ramparts. Allow your heart to flow.
There has been too much accumulation of wrongs. No one can go back and rewrite the script. In that sense, no one can right a wrong. Yet you must right the wrong that got stuck in your heart. Who is going to remove it if you don't?
I am asking you to remove pent-up anger and hurt and such in your heart. I am asking that, once and for all, you dispense with it. What are you saving it for, beloveds? Throw it away. Throw it away now, and be done with it. Let all you never really wanted get out from your heart where it never belonged in the first place. Hold your heart above the throng. Hold your heart high. Your heart is Mine.
