“Therefore, you have a function in the world in its own terms. For who can understand a language far beyond his simple grasp? Forgiveness represents your function here. It is not God’s creation, for it is the means by which untruth can be undone. And who would pardon Heaven? Yet on earth, you need the means to let illusions go. Creation merely waits for your return to be acknowledged, not to be complete.” ACIM Workbook Lesson 192. 2. – 7.
God only knows Truth. He (whatever that Mystery is) does not pardon because he has never condemned. There is no condemnation in Heaven. We as mortal bodies, we do condemn and we condemn a lot. That is why forgiveness is necessary and why it is our function in the world.
Everyone needs pardoning here and NOW you can “play God” by pardoning everyone, everything, every creature including yourself, and every thought you or anyone else has ever had.
THIS IS THE WAY TO FORGIVE: BELOW IS HOW TO ACHIEVE YOUR FUNCTIION –
LOOK AT WHATEVER IS RUMINATING IN YOUR MIND. GET CLEAR ABOUT THE SUBJECT.
SAY….. “SO – NOW LET ME SEE, HAVE I DONE THIS BEFORE OR SOMETHING SIMILAR?”
LOOK AT THE CONTENT AND NOT THE FORM. FOR EXAMPLE, MAYBE YOU HAVEN’T RAPED ANYONE BUT HAVE YOU EVER TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF SOMEONE?
WAIT. DON’T THINK JUST WAIT. YOU HAVE ASKED THE QUESTION AND AN INTUITION OR THOUGHT WILLCOME TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION. MAYBE NOT WITHIN THE NEXT MINUTE BUT MAYBE TOMORROW.
WHEN YOUR QUESTION HAS BEEN ANSWERED AND YOU HAVE SEEN THE ISSUE ALSO IN YOURSELF, DO NOT JUDGE THAT THOUGHT OR YOURSELF. REMEMBER DON’T JUDGE IT.
SANITY IS NOW RESTORED AND YOUR FUNCTION IS COMPLETE.
THIS IS FORGIVENESS: LOOKING, WAITING AND NOT JUDGING.
YOU HAVE WITHDRAWN YOUR PROJECTION AND YOUR PERCEPTION HAS CHANGED.
THE MORE YOU FORGIVE, THE CLOSER YOU GET TO HEAVEN.
THE CLOSER TO PEACE YOU GET.
Lesson 192.9 “Therefore hold no one prisoner. Release instead of bind, for thus are you made free. The way is simple. Every time you feel a stab of anger, realize you hold a sword above your head. And it will fall or be averted as you choose to be condemned or free. Thus does each one who seems to tempt you to be angry represent your savior from the prison house of death. And so you owe him (or her) thanks instead of pain.” ACIM Lesson 192.9 1 – 7
If you are contemplating suicide you are holding the sword above your heard and holding yourself prisoner. You are innocent and LOVED! Find it within your holy mind!
