The Joy Of Forgiveness
Who has forgiven another and not felt the softness of the Eternal steal over him like the breath of Heaven, bringing him Peace, Light and Joy…
Do You Find It Hard To Forgive?
Some people find it hard to forgive. This is only because they do not know the Way of forgiveness, and are trying of their personal selves to attain to it.
Of course it is impossible. They may pray long and earnestly to be able to forgive, they may be sincere and honest, but in their hearts they know that such forgiveness has not come, and they remain ignorant of the Way it is to be accomplished.
Personal Sense Is The Culprit
The reason one finds himself unable to forgive another – despite his true desire to do so – is that he is seeing the OTHER as a human being who has wronged him, and HIMSELF as the one who has been wronged.
This Is Forgiveness That Works
From this state of separateness, never can one see truly how to forgive. First, let him see spiritually Identifying both himself and the other as Identities of the Perfect Self – which is the infinite I AM – he will be stirred from within to know he must not harbor such darkness any longer. His whole desire will be to see as the Infinite only. NOTHING WILL REMAIN TO BE FORGIVEN.
When we cross out personal sense entirely – by abandonment of it – we shall see no sickness or sin to be healed.
Those of us who know by way of crystal Illumination, see the imperishable World of Beauty, Peace and Love. With the crossing out of all sense of the personal, there shall come from us the momentous words – Forgive them.”
