A sinner is usually a sinner because he is thinking wrong,
 whereas a mean person has a warped and deformed personality.
 
A sinner’s faults usually lie in his thoughtlessness, 
but the mean person is nearly always a person of 
strong will and determination.
Sinning stems from weakness, meanness from strength.
A dog will love a sinner but seldom a mean person.

Vernon Howard’s SECRETS OF LIFE 
 
“A man never goes after something unless he at least suspects that it
is real, that it is there. He must therefore become consciously aware
 — _even if dimly at first_ — that an entirely new world exists for
him.
 
This new world has been proclaimed throughout the ages to unthinking
mankind. It appears when a man or woman becomes receptive to esoteric
knowledge, secret knowledge. It is secret only because millions of
unhappy people will not receive and do not understand it. But you,
the reader, can dare to be different. Then you will be different from
the millions of unhappy people. You will know the truth that sets you
free.”
Psycho-Pictography, p. 29

Evolution is the Awakening of the soul to 
a recognition of its Unity with the whole.

And it means, of course, 
that we are going to talk about God.

ACIM Workbook Lesson 197 Insights
“It can be but my gratitude I earn.”
Ingratitude is another word for unforgiveness. The whole ego thought system came from ingratitude for God’s gift of all His Love. It was wanting more than everything. When I have been able to truly forgive a brother, when I recognize no harm occurred, my heart overflows with gratitude. The space resentment had taken in my mind is freed to receive the gift of Love. With Love, gratitude is inevitable, for it is an aspect of Love.
 
When I experience pain, whether it be emotional or physical, it reflects ingratitude and unforgiveness. I do not need to earn God’s gratitude, for His gratitude for His extension, which is my Self, has never ceased. But I do need to earn my own gratitude through forgiveness. Without my gratitude, I can neither recognize nor accept God’s. One of the central themes of the Course is that we perceive God as we perceive ourselves. So if I have ingratitude, I will believe God is not grateful for me. Because I believe I can withhold Love and do withhold it when I am not grateful, I believe God withholds His Love when I perceive Him as ungrateful.
 
To earn my gratitude, I must recognize my unforgivenesses and offer them to the Holy Spirit so He can help me recognize them for the illusions they are. With His help I can release these illusions and make room for the gratitude that is innate in my Self.
 
Holy Spirit, I ask your help to recognize unforgiveness so I may let it go.
=============================
Everything you do should be done with peace.
That is the best medicine for your body, 
mind, and soul. 
It is the most wonderful way to live.
