Jesus says that “your way will be different.” The way of A Course in Miracles is a way of “Know Thyself” through forgiving the illusion of your brothers. “Forgiveness lets the veil be lifted up that hides the face of Christ from those who look with unforgiving eyes upon the world. It lets you recognize the Son of God, and clears your memory of all dead thoughts so that remembrance of your Father can arise across the threshold of your mind. “
Forgiveness is the door way to heaven. Any attempt to seek love, approval, connection and security in this world will fail. “Forgiveness offers everything I want”. When Jesus says everything, he means EVERYTHING. What else do we need to hear? What else do we need to seek? What else do we need to try? Forgiveness is totally dependent on me. Nothing and nobody can stop me if that is my desire.
“Why would you seek an answer other than the answer that will answer everything? Here is the perfect answer, given to imperfect questions, meaningless requests, halfhearted willingness to hear, and less than halfway diligence and partial trust. Here is the answer! Seek for it no more. You will not find another one instead.”
All brothers are thoughts that wait for my forgiveness and release. Let’s make this year different by making it all the same. Let’s will to see every brother as Christ and to think only thoughts that are given by the Holy Spirit, as we teach the whole universe and ourselves who we are. Let time be used for letting go of old memories, interpretations and stories. Let forgiveness be the only purpose of this life. May this Christmas be a time that the Holy Christ is born in us.
