Part 1

Undoing the Way We See Things Now.

Lesson 62

Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.

It is your forgiveness that will bring the world of darkness to the light. It is your forgiveness that lets you recognize the light in which you see. Forgiveness is the demonstration that you are the light of the world. Through your forgiveness does the truth about yourself return to your memory. Therefore in your forgiveness lies your salvation.

2. Illusions about yourself and the world are one. That is why forgiveness is a gift to yourself. Your goal is to find out who you are, having denied your identity by attacking creation and its Creator. Now you are learning how to remember the truth. For this attack must be replaced by forgiveness, so that thoughts of life may replace thoughts of death.

3. Remember that in every attack you call upon your own weakness, while each time you forgive you call upon the strength of Christ in you.79 Do you not then begin to understand what forgiveness will do for you? It will remove all sense of weakness, strain, and fatigue from your mind. It will remove all fear and guilt and pain. It will restore the invulnerability and power God gave His Son to your awareness.

4. Let us be glad to begin and end this day by practicing today’s idea, and to use it as frequently as possible throughout. It will help to make the day as happy for you as God wants it to be. And it will help those who seem to be far away in space and time, to share this happiness with you.

5. As often as you can, closing your eyes if possible, say to yourself:

Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.

I would fulfill my function, that I may be happy.

   Then devote a minute or two to considering your function, and the happiness and release it will bring you.

6. Let related thoughts come freely, for your heart will recognize these words, and in your mind is the awareness that they are true. Should your attention wander, repeat the idea and add:

I would remember this because I want to be happy.[1]

Personal Notes:

Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world. I would fulfill my function that I may be happy. Our goal in remembering our identity as sons of God in Christ Jesus is revealed as we give up attack thoughts replacing them with forgiveness so thoughts of life may replace thoughts of death. As we call on the strength of Jesus to replace our weakness forgiveness is received, removing all fear, guilt and pain, to restore the invulnerability and power God gave His Son to our awareness. So, I am only too happy to hop on board of the forgiveness train, receiving it and eagerly dispersing it. What a blessing to be blessed to give blessings. God is so good to involve us in His mission to bring light to the world. How wonderful it feels to see a heavy darkened face lifted & shining with the Love light of Jesus on their face in forgiveness, to see light come into the world where heavy darkness had taken up residence, that is what I call Happy. Happy is what I want to be, Happy is what I want for the world and everyone in it. Joyfully I receive and joyfully I give forgiveness that healing and restoration of separation my be accomplished in this earth as it is in Heaven. I pray for all my brothers, sisters and myself for continued guidance, wisdom, discernment, protection, and illumination of purpose in The Way, The Truth, The Life in Christ Jesus, Amen. Thank you for sharing with me. Walk in Love my friend!
