…And so it is important for you to understand this basic principle of forgiveness. Many of you think of forgiveness as allowing people off the hook, so to speak, but forgiveness is a way of looking at the world. It is a soft way, a loving way, a kind way, and it keeps your heart open, and it keeps your defenses down, and that is how you connect to your brothers and sisters without fear. (the one we know as Jesus, channeled by Tina Louise Spaulding)
i just loved this lesson, so i posted it here. In fact, i love all the lessons and am appreciative of every one of them and each one is worthy of sharing with the world, but for some reason, i chose to share this one. it must be for you too, dear imaginary reader.
i continue to aspire to practice each lesson in ACIM fully and internalize the work so that i may realize a more just, peaceful and beautiful world reflected back at me. With this as the bulwark for my spiritual health and well-being, the vastness of It All is a beautiful ocean to find oneself in. And, i’m all in…doing the back float, the breast stroke, treading water, letting out my sails, breathing in the salty air, guided by stars, accompanied by birds, powered by the wind, “walking each other home”; always.
Fair winds and following seas to you all. Gaotha cothroma agus farraigí ina dhiaidh sin. Bons vents et mers suivantes. Makani ʻOlu a Holo Mālie. רוחות נאות וימים הבאים.
