Holding grievances is an attack on God’s plan for salvation.
Holding grievances is an attempt to prove that God’s plan for salvation will not work. Yet only His plan will work. By holding grievances, I am therefore excluding my only hope of salvation from my awareness. I would no longer defeat my own best interests in this insane way. I would accept God’s plan for salvation, and be happy.
Specific applications for this idea might be in these forms:
I am choosing between misperception and salvation as I look on this.
If I see grounds for grievances in this, I will not see the grounds for my salvation.
This calls for salvation, not attack.

Christ Consciousness and Humanity
During this period of vibrational transformation each of you will have a variety of roles to play. Each of you will translate the Life-impulse into patterns appropriate to your environment, and express this impulse in your daily living. I am now blending my consciousness with the cells of your body in order to provide you with some or the more specific information net that I do occasionally relate, but I do this as little as possible. My primary function is to show you how to tap these systems or data retention for yourself. With guidance, you will learn to release your definitions of who you think you are, open your-self up to the experience of a much greater reality than you presently believe possible, and return to a level of consciousness where you will be able to communicate with us, not through cumbersome words and concepts, but directly, through communion with all that is.

The American Presidency
Seth Godin made an interesting post this morning which references the campaign in a broader perspective worth considering in the context of our shifting foundations.
The post-reality paradox
Reality and rational thought have paid more dividends in the last century than ever before.
Science-based medicine has dramatically increased the lifespan and health of people around the world. Vaccines have prevented millions of children from lifelong suffering and even death. Evidence-based trials have transformed the output of farms, the way organizations function and yes, even the yield of websites.
. . . When Hillary Clinton lies, her standing decreases. But when Donald Trump lies, it actually helps his standing among his followers. That’s because he’s not selling reality, he’s selling something else. It’s confusing to outsiders, because he’s not working on the same axis as traditional candidates.
. . . Joni Mitchell famously warned, “you don’t know what’ve got till it’s gone.” I’d rather not find out.
