Through forgiveness you are training yourself to see beyond your ego and realize your place in the world. As you understand that on a causal level all hearts and minds are joined, you realize that peace can be extended from your mind to the mind of others. Peace creates a healing of yourself and others and allows you to realize your function and experience the joy that God intends for you.
We will review these ideas today:
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.
Suggestions for specific forms for applying this idea are:
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.
Suitable specific forms of this idea include:
"The ego is quite literally a fearful thought."
