God said:

It’s a good idea that you get away from the thought that you are owed or that anyone owes you. No matter what, it is essential that you get away from this thought and how it makes you feel. The sense of being owed does not bode well for you. Even if by everything you know, someone owes you, you must run away from that idea like the plague.   Even when the world says that someone owes you, let go of the sense of being owed. Even when the courts of the land say that someone owes you, let go. It is harmful to you to hold on to the feeling that anyone owes you anything. Carrying that idea makes you feel put-upon and self-righteous. A sense of being put-upon does not feel good nor does self-righteousness. Such thoughts don’t take you anywhere. They certainly don’t bless you or anyone.   Go around in life thinking different thoughts. When thoughts of obligation run around in your mind, they infiltrate your blood stream, and you feel victimized. Victimhood is not to be yours. Nor do you want to support anyone else in his or her sense of victimhood.

Even when someone has promised you something and doesn’t deliver, nothing is owed to you. No one owes you anything. You are not owed anything. Let go of this idea.   The concept that you are owed goes against the grain. It does not support you. You owe it to yourself to lose that idea.   Do not think that I am saying you do not deserve. Everyone deserves to be treated courteously and responsibly. Do not think that I oppose your being entitled. The thing is that keeping the idea of being owed becomes a grudge. Bear not grudges.   Even when someone finally then does pay up, you may still continue feeling resentful as well may he or she.   Everyone wants freedom. Give yourself freedom from the concept of being owed.   Often, both the so-called ower and the owed do not come from a good place. Sometimes they may come from greed or selfishness or from simple misunderstanding. Sometimes, however, it gets to a point where ower and/or the owed come from a desire to retaliate.   What do wars come from, beloveds? A sense of being owed. One or both parties may feel owed. Then it is not easy for the twain to meet.   What is the precursor to the sense of both being owed or not owing? It comes from a desire to make sure you are not taken advantage of. And where does the concept of not being taken advantage of come from but from fear that something that is yours may be taken away from you. Anyway, you waste yourself on any and all the layers of the concept of being owed or owing, for the truth is that no one owns another’s responsibility. You do not own anything, beloveds, and you do not have to hold on to anything including your thoughts and sense of lack. You can release them. You don’t need them. You never did.   Now, when someone does bestow gifts upon you, in addition to saying thank you, give as much attention to gratitude as you once upon a time gave to your sense of being owed. See what gratitude does for you and the world.   Now, here is a spectacular idea. Rise above the idea that I, God, owe you. Have not My children sometimes held that idea? Have you not perhaps held the idea that I have done you wrong by allowing something unwanted to happen that impacted your life? Have you not perhaps wondered how I could let you down in such a way, as if I perhaps set out to deny you your heart’s due? Beloveds, have you not, on some occasions, felt that I am obliged to do better for you? Have you not thought I owed you, or, if I truly loved you, I owed you?
