The card for today is a quote from A COURSE IN MIRACLES–” The sacrifice which it (the ego) regards as purification is actually the root of its bitter resentmentment. For it would much prefer to attack directly, and avoid delaying what it really wants” From the Nov.16th Ur-text
The ego convinces us sacrifice is purification but the sacrifice makes it full of resentment because it would rather just attack and take what it wants right away.
Today is about the healing of the whole nasty pattern!!
