There is no cruelty in God and none in me.
It does not matter what you think you did or failed to do, you are always a beloved Son or Daughter in your Father’s eyes. Your Father loves you and nothing else matters. Nothing else exists and nothing else is true. Anytime you feel concerned that you have done something that warrants forgiveness in your Father’s eyes, the ego is at play. Anytime there is a feeling of guilt or shame, remember that it is the ego thought system that believes this and the ego thought system is designed to keep you separated from the awareness of God. It is designed to keep you afraid of opening up to the experience of God Himself. The Light of God is always with you. It is inside of you and it surrounds you at all times. It is the reality of who you really are.
