How are resentment and grievance healed?

Resentments and grievances abound.
Some, self righteously exploit them and gloat.
Others, rise above and move on.

What about me?
What about you?

The Tao, full of paradox, takes it all as a harmonious whole.
The person of resentment and grievance is out of balance.
The person who goes with the flow experiences the peace of balance and harmony.

Unitarian Univeralists know this because they covenant together to affirm and promote the seventh of their seven principles, the respect for the interdependent web of all existence. UUs also affirm and promote justice, equity, and compassion in human relations. It is with these two principles that resentment and grievance are healed.
