Lesson 121

Forgiveness is the key to happiness.

The unforgiving mind is full of fear. It cannot see the good in itself or any others and cannot find any hope in escaping it’s despair. The unforgiving mind is angry, weak, afraid to move forward and afraid to stay where it’s at. The unforgiving mind is afraid to go to sleep and afraid of every sound, afraid of being still and terrified of the dark.

The only way out is through forgiveness. Devote 10 minutes in the morning and the evening to learning how to forgive and receive forgiveness to for they are the same. Close your eyes and picture someone you hold resentment towards. See One shining spark of Beauty in that person . Now picture of friend that you hold dearly and see that beautiful light shining all through them. Combine these two images so the person you hold with resentment you now see with the love you hold of a friend.

Now say to yourself

Forgiveness is the key to happiness. I will awaken from the dream that I am mortal, fallible, and full of sin, and know I am the perfect Son of God.

The last line is so important because if we cannot see how perfect we are and love ourselves for everything we are and forgive ourselves for anything we perceive we have done, then we cannot love anyone else. You are the perfect Son of God. Everyone is the perfect Son of God.
