Without forgiveness I will still be blind.
How will you know when you have achieved forgiveness for a moment? You will know when you have perceived the Light within your mind. When your mind is suddenly illuminated with the white light of Christ, the vision of Christ has been accomplished; true forgiveness has been accomplished for a moment.
The world that blinded you from seeing the light disappears for a moment and the Light of the Real World reveals Itself to you. In silence, practice becoming completely relaxed and focusing all of your attention solely on seeing the Light of Christ at the center of your mind’s eye. Pretend that the dark screen in your mind’s eye is a movie screen and just focus all of your attention on the center of the screen as you wait for the Light of Christ to reveal Himself to you.
The experience often starts out by perceiving sparks or flashes of white light; as if a flashbulb were going off from a camera there. A white star or twin stars may flash. You will know it when you see it because love, peace and healing instantly come with the Light. You will feel the deep light of Love shine strongly from your heart, flooding your body with a sudden release of tension. The tension is replaced with a deep sense and feeling that everything is okay.
As the feeling soaks, a feeling of quiet happiness and joy will sink in and begin to carry you through your day. You will just feel happy, this is what love does. It is your greatest gift hidden inside of you. It is who you really are.
