This is the 7th principle on which this Loving Relationship Circle is based.
In the past I had uncomfortables thoughts and feelings, which I tried to analyse and get rid of in different ways, but this never brought me lasting peace or removed them. If anything it just kept them in place.
A Course in Miracles has taught me that there is another way, and one that is able to remove my blocks. I have to make another choice, because the cause to my upset and discomfort is inside me and in my power to control.
First, I simply take responsibility for my blocks. I now exercise catching myself in trying to be righteous, judging someone – myself or something, feeling guilty, hurt or unfairly treated etc. Then I must look gently at these blocks. Looking gently means without judging them, trying to change them or get rid of them, but rather just observing them like a river floating by. Next I have to be willing to see them another way. I have to be willing to see peace instead of this. I have to hand them over to that part if my mind that does remember truth. I am told it only takes a little willingness for a shift to occur in my mind. This willingness to see them another way is the choosing again. When I do this over and over again, the blocks fade away.
Each time I have become aware of a block in my mind and was willing to take responsablity for it and choose again, I experienced a deep relief and peace and small glimpses of the Love that I have forgotten.
