This seems to imply a duel meaning. Did Crowley change his mind after writing it?

So is Crowley saying Grigori is better off punching Aeon418 in the face for stealing his $100, then they both shake it off, pat each other on the shoulder and get on with the going instead of staying bogged down in resentment?

Or if Grigori was in his mindful state, the loss of $100 wouldn't bother him so much? Maybe the going is more important to Grigori than the $100?

Or if Grigori was in his mindful state, he wouldn't have let his $100 get stolen?

I like the resentment angle Zero. That is one I can identify with.
