The Poison of Resentment

Actress Susan Saint James, in a TV interview after the terrible plane crash that claimed the life of her 14 year old son Teddy, and injured her husband, NBC Sports Chairman Dick Ebersol, and her son Charles, made the following brilliant statement: “Resentment is like taking poison and then expecting the other person to die.” Even in the face of her great loss, she is not angry, blaming, or resentful.

Resentment and blame are poisons to the soul. They are far more harmful to you than to anyone else. Our ego/wounded self believes taht if we blame and resent someone, we can somehow have control over that person or over tje outcome of things. But what the resentment really does is pull us into the darkness of seeing ourselves as a victim.

It’s very helpful to think of resentment as poisoning yourself while expecting the other to somehow be hurt by it. If you can think of anger, blame and resentment as poisons to the soul, perhaps this will make it easier to release these dark feelings.

These feeling do not come out of nowhere. They are the result of your thoughts and and beliefs. For example, if you have the thought, as Susan could have had, “God is punishing me,” you will likely see yourself as a victim and feel angry and resentful. But having this thought or belief does not make it a reality. The resulting resentment is actually Spirit’s way of letting you know that you are off track in your thinking. Thoughts that cause anger, fear, and resentment are thoughts that are being made up by the wounded self. THey are not based on truth. The truth never causes anger andd fear. The truth can certainly cause sadness and grief, such as the reality that Susan’s son is gone. But anger and resentment are not the same as sadness and grief. Anger and resentment are the result of blaming someone or something.

In the interview, Susan shared that her son Teddy has transitioned from one stage of life to another. She finds strength in her belief in God’s love and reassurance that the soul does not perish but moves on when it has completed its lessons. This perspective helps her to mourn without bitterness and prevents the loss from consuming her spirit.

The original biblical meaning of “sin” suggests a deviation from the target. When our thoughts and actions stray from the path of righteousness, we are essentially missing the mark, because we’re not aligned with divine principles. As God embodies truth, love, peace, and joy, any departure from these virtues means we’re off course. When our mindset is misaligned, it fosters negative emotions like anger, fear, anxiety, depression, resentment, and blame. This negativity inflicts harm on our inner selves, ultimately constituting a self-destructive transgression.

Our self-perceived flaws, rooted in our mental constructs, drive us to seek dominance in relationships, evade emotional hurt, and crave security. However, this ego-based mindset consistently distorts reality, fabricating misguided notions. Devoid of true wisdom, the ego masquerades as all-knowing, but its perceptions are inherently flawed. Every thought emanating from this ego-centered perspective stems from a desire to manipulate others and dictate outcomes. This need for control fundamentally contradicts tjhe pursuit of authentic love and truth, rendering it fundamentally misguided.

Truth does not originate in the mind. Truth comes into the mind from Spirit when we are open to learning about love and truth. Truth never creates resentment.

Emotions like anger, bitterness, anxiety, fear, and depression serve as red flags, indicating that you’ve lost touch with your true self and are instead being controlled by your ego. However, when you cultivate a willingness to learn and understand what promotes self-love and compassion towards others, you’ll transition from negative emotions to a state of serenity and joy, even in the midst of sorrow and loss. A striking example of this is Susan Saint James, whose face radiated an aura of truth and authenticity as she shared her personal experience with us, despite her grief. Her being was devoid of darkness, filled instead with love, courage, and faith. Thank you, Susan, for the precious gift you’ve given us.
