Lesson 62 – Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.

Keys to this Lesson

We have a function and that is forgiveness.  
Forgiveness helps us to see the light in any situation.
When we open up to forgiveness we become the model for forgiveness thus bringing light into the world.
We don’t forgive ourselves but we join with Holy Spirit to do so.
Jesus also tells us that forgiveness is our salvation. It is what will save us from this world that we have made.

Forgiveness is a gift that we give ourselves.
It helps us to stay focused on the goal of remembering who we are, God’s Son.

When we forget and we attack whether it is attacking ourselves or attacking another, we are focusing on the weakness within us or we could say we are listening to the ego’s voice.
That is not what we want to do.
We want to focus on the strength that is within us, that which is of Christ.
That would be the voice of Love and Forgiveness that calls to us.

Jesus also shares with us what the benefits are of Forgiveness:
Removes all sense of weakness, strain and fatigue.
Takes away fear and guilt and pain.

Sounds like a good plan to follow! Count me in!

Exercise

Begin and end the day.
Frequently through the day.
Close your eyes for most of the practices.
Say:
Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world. I would fulfill my function that I may be happy.
Take a minute or so to consider your function and the happiness that it would bring to you.
Allow related thoughts come to mind.
If your attention wanders:
I would remember this because I want to be happy.
Forgiveness brings us happiness.

Since you’re here… …we have a small favor to ask. More people are reading our posts, listening to our audios and watching our videos than ever before but far fewer are donating for it. As an all-volunteer ministry, you can see why we need to ask for your help. MiraclesOne provides ACIM resources freely however it takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe in encouraging others to practically apply the Course principles in their lives – because it might just make the one difference in your life. If everyone who reads, listens or watches and likes what we offer helps to pay for it we can continue to afford our expenses and keep our resources FREE to all ACIM Students. Monthly Donors receive free gifts in appreciation for their support.
