The Exorcist of Grudges

Posted on Updated on

WHAT IS IT IN THE HUMAN HEART which loves to bear a grudge? I assume it must be some obsession otherwise those grudges would not be clung to so avidly. Have you ever tried to dislodge a grudge in someone? It’s an almost impossible task, outside of some kind of exorcism. The more you try to uproot that spike of bitterness from grudgers, the more they will cling to it. It’s as if they have a need to bear grudges, for grudges are a form of victimhood. People bear their grudges like badges saying, “poor me”, so the world will feel sorry for them, and they can wallow in their mire of dark unjoy. Grudges are a form of hate embedded in the fabric of the soul (its freeze). Grudges are the canker sores of those who take offence with ease. Their precious little egos, when they’re slighted, make a meal out of venom and aggrievance and, begrudging conflict resolution, they would rather hide behind antagonistic zealotry than simple fruitful fellowship. People with grudges think they are indulging in justifiable resentment. But they are merely showing their pettiness and inability to forgive — if indeed there is anything really needing forgiveness, for very often grudges are based on the egocentric neuroses of the grudger rather than on any terrible evil of the one who is begrudged (which has usually been blown out of all proportion). So often, one finds that the object of the grudge is only something slight which could be annulled with just a mutual smile and a shared cup of tea, if only grudgers realised what course could set them free.

NO DOUBT YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE PHRASE, “The end of the world is nigh”, or you may have seen it written on a sandwich-board donned by a religious fundamentalist in the street. However, rather than “The end of the world is nigh”, it would be more accurate to say, “The end of this age is near”, as it has to give way to the new, when this world will be supernaturally morphed into a totally transformed new heaven and new earth (fully transfigured cosmos and hugely raised dimensionality). And so it should be. We should not want to stand in its way. The world as we know it was never meant to be the final state of this creation. This world as it is now is merely transitory — a fleeting cosmic theatre in which darkness (evil) must come to its climax so that it can all be supernaturally eradicated (as it surely will be by the Creator of this cosmos and those remaining faithful angels) when a new creation will arise out of the ashes of the old.
