Part 1

Undoing the Way We See Things Now

Lesson 82

We will review these ideas today:

1. (63) The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.

     My forgiveness is the means by which the light of the world finds expression through me. My forgiveness is the means by which I become aware of the light of the world in me. My forgiveness is the means by which the world is healed, together with myself. Let me, then forgive the world, that it may be healed along with me.

2. Suggestions for specific forms for applying this idea are:

Let peace extend from my mind to yours, [name].

I share the light of the world with you, [name].

Through my forgiveness I can see this as it is.

3. (64) Let me not forget my function.

     I would not forget my function, because I would remember my Self. I cannot fulfill my function if I forget it. And unless I fulfill my function, I will not experience the joy that God intends for me.

4. Suitable specific forms of this idea include:

Let me not use this to hide my function from me.

I would use this as an opportunity to fulfill my function.

This may threaten my ego, but cannot change my function in any way.[1]

Personal Notes:

“The light of the world brings peace to every mind through my forgiveness.”

 Let peace extend from my mind to yours, Mother.

Let peace extend from my mind to yours, Father.

Let peace extend from my mind to yours, Brother.

Let peace extend from my mind to yours, Sister.

Let peace extend from my mind to yours, Friend.

I share the light of the world with you and you and you and you.

Through my forgiveness I can see this as it is.

“Let me not forget my function.” The purpose of the world I see is to obscure my function for forgiveness, and provide me with the justification for forgetting it. Let me not wander into temptation by any forms of distraction: work, play, entertainment, guilt, shame. Holy Spirit has another use for all the illusions we have made and sees another purpose in them. To Holy Spirit, the world is a place we learn to forgive ourselves what we thought of as our sins. My function here is to be the light of the world, a function given me by God. Only by fulfilling the function given me by God will I be happy. That is because my function is to be happy by using the means which happiness becomes inevitable. There is no other way. Every time I choose whether or not to fulfill my function, I am really choosing whether to be happy or not. Let me not forget my function. Let me not try to substitute mine for God’s. Let me forgive and be happy. 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!
