As with the last lesson, we are not thinking with God on a regular basis so we do not choose to love on a regular basis. As Jesus tells us, we need forgiveness in this world because this world is made on the premise of fear and in truth does not exist. In God, there is not a speck of condemnation. That’s why he reminds us that “Fear condemns and love forgives.” This reminds me of a practice that my husband used a few years back. He wanted to change his mind when complaints appeared no matter how large or small, so he meets the complaint with “That’s Great!”. He sends it love and they he does not become tangled in the ego’s web.
How simply we can experience love and forgiveness by stopping our thoughts immediately just as Rev. Paul and I do. “God is the Love in which I forgive you…in which I forgive myself….” And in this we know the blessing of Love that we are.
