Where would you rather go: to hell or heaven?
I get to play the victim if you will play the persecutor. "Why does this always happen to me!" is the cry of the victim.
There is a certain sense of righteousness with the expression of indignity at the projected attacks. These attacks are not only the things the persecutor did, but the things the persecutor didn't do especially not loving me enough or in the right way or only a little bit when the full attention was expected.
It is taught in A Course In Miracles that the special relationship is the ego's home. As Kenneth Wapnick, a teacher of the Course writes, "It is to protect its 'home' that the ego always strives to justify anger." p.19 (Christian Psychology in A Course In Miracles)
The path of the ego takes us to hell. The path of the spirit takes us to heaven. Where would you rather go?
