The recent situation with the conflict between ACIM Teachers has also alerted me to this practice. It is for me to continue to practice forgiveness more and more with everything that I read, hear, see and experience in this world. It is for me to go to Holy Spirit with everything and let Him shine the Light of Truth. The only side to take is IN-side with Him. That is where the truth is found. I can never agree with everyone as the world is set up that way.
I know that the Course tells me that I “weep each time an idol falls.” Each time that I set up an expectation in relation to someone or something, I will always be disappointed and resentful. The answer is never found outside of me, not in a physical teacher, nor a book, not a certain outcome of a situation, no-thing. The only Answer is found with the Holy Spirit and His Answer is one of Love, one of Peace, and one of the recognition of Innocence in all.
Freedom is promised. Dreams will end.
I am released.
And Holy Spirit whispers once again, “Simple Forgiveness.”
