Today I claim the gifts forgiveness gives.
What gift there is but the present moment when I forgive all that I see, think and experience. Forgiveness helps me to see the way things truly are. Forgiveness helps me to let go of all that is troubling my mind. I am grateful that the Holy Spirit is there in my mind shining away all the illusions that fog my memory of Home. As He is the beacon to me, I too am the beacon to all my brothers each time I accept the gift of forgiveness in my heart. I accept it now for the recognition of the unity of our life in God. Nothing can alter or change the Truth. And when I forget, I simply remember the Holy Spirit’s presence there in my mind and utilize Him to bring clarity and peace to the situation at hand. I realize that this takes practice and so I devote my day to mindfulness of my thoughts and claiming the gifts forgiveness brings to me.
