The situation in Egypt reminded me of a section from A Course in Miracles . In short, it says all hate and anger stems from self guilt and self hatred . Hopefully this anger will soon be released and a appropriate agreement can be reached .
Only the self-accused condemn . As you prepare to make a choice that will result in different outcomes, there is first one thing that must be overlearned . It must become a habit of response so typical of everything you do that it becomes your first response to all temptation, and to every situation that occurs . Learn this and learn it well, for it is here delay of happiness is shortened by a span of time you cannot realize . You never hate your brother for his sins, but only for your own . Whatever form his sins appear to take, it but obscures the fact that you believe them to be yours, and therefore meriting a ” just ” attack .
Why should his sins be sins, if you did not believe they could not be forgiven in you ? Why are they real in him, if you did not believe that they are in your reality ? And why do you attack them everywhere except you hate yourself ? Are you a sin ? You answer ” yes ” whenever you attack, for by attack do you assert that you are guilty and must give you as you deserve . And what can you deserve but what you are ? If you did not believe that you deserved attack, it would not occur to you to give attack to anyone at all . Why should you ? What would be the gain to you ? What could be the outcome be that you would want ? And how could murder bring you benefit ?
