Under the Radar

by Rev. Dan Strodl, Ordained Ministerial Counselor

When I first started studying A Course in Miracles many years ago, I understood forgiveness is the key to undoing the ego thought system and healing our minds. I identified six people I had grievances with and needed to forgive, and over time I was able to let go of my grievances with the Holy Spirit’s help. I felt such a wonderful freedom from the ego’s chains and I thought I was done.

Haha… no way.

As I became more vigilant of my thoughts, I discovered that I had many small grievances and fears that got under the radar, and were taking away my peace. As I became more conscious of these little blocks to love and giving them to the Holy Spirit for healing, my practice expanded. I would catch 20 or 30 every day. And as the little blocks were healed, I was lifted further up out of the ego darkness in my mind, and my peace and happiness were growing.

As I kept this practice up everyday, many of these little judgments dissolved. Now I may have one, two, three blocks a day. I welcome them as forgiveness opportunities to heal my mind.

Today three blocks came up. A chap was sitting on a bench in the park, and he got up and walked away and left his rubbish behind. I felt annoyed, and judgments filled my mind. Would I give up my peace for this? No way. So I paused, quieted my mind and gave it to the Holy Spirit for healing. The grievances soon vanished, and I was at peace again.

Later I walked across a pedestrian crossing, and a car didn’t stop. He almost hit me and I was caught up in fear. I wanted to write down his license number and report him to the police. Instead, I stepped back and l gave it to Holy Spirit for healing, and peace returned.

A little later I was walking down the street and someone was walking straight towards me looking at their mobile phone. They nearly walked into me, and I had to get out of the way and move into the street… another small block. So again, I paused, quieted my mind, and gave it to the Holy Spirit for healing.

The more I notice these little forgiveness opportunities in my daily life, the more peaceful and happy I feel. The Course really comes alive for me with vigilant practice.
