"Change your mind on what you want to see and all the world must change accordingly" A Course in Miracles
Forgiveness is a tool applied to the mind that corrects ones thinking. When the Source of ones thinking changes, so do all their thoughts as well. The effects (in the world) will inevitably change to align with the mind change. The Cause (mind) and the effect (in the world) can never be separated. Whatever the subconscious beliefs and thoughts of one person are, they will experience the results of those thoughts. This is why all unconscious/subconscious thinking must be made conscious!
When we go to the Mind to correct the problem, it IS corrected as we have gone to the SOURCE of the error. The solution can then be experienced instead of the problem. "The problem" in that form will never return as the source HAS been corrected. The Source of ones thinking is always fear/separation OR love/unity. Our life shows us, when we are humble to recognize instead of arrogant to judge, what our current thought system is.
If you recognize fear within and around you, this is the current thought system you are using. This is perfectly normal at first for all humans, we all have to awaken out of fear, but it is this recognition that is the "ding ding ding" within us that tells us we need to change the direction we are headed. The recognition of your need to heal, is the willingness necessary for "the problem" as you see it, to be brought TO Truth/Holy Spirit in your mind, FOR healing to occur.
Salvation is forgiveness experienced by all minds. Thus in order for salvation of the world to be complete, one must forgive their own misperceptions, learn to listen to a new Voice, and follow guidance along a path that is filled with light, hope and an inner peace first. When what is wanted IS peace, we will ask for forgiveness and receive it. Until we are ready to let everything that interferes with the goal of peace go, one is busy defending the errors the mind made up. The mind is a ravenous, loud, terrorizing mechanism that until understood and undone, leads us into temptation and endless roads of fear and delay. It is only the goal of peace, and not any worldly goal, that can lift us out of the painstaking life experiences we have made for ourselves. The goal of peace reminds us that until we are in PERFECT peace we are not done learning, and can ALWAYS turn within to holy spirit to further heal through correction of our thinking and seeing.
Refuse to tread down the path of pain any longer. You are destin for greatness and magitude, not littleness and suffering. Your power is in your choice for what you will believe to be true. Are we left alone here on earth, confused, afraid and without an answer to any problem that linger in the foreground or background of our minds? Or Has forgiveness been the gift of healing sight, given us by God to apply to our thinking through the guidance of His Holy Spirit as an answer to any and all personal or worldly problems? One choice leads us towards to truth and one away from it. What ever direction we choose will determine the outcome we experience.
Choose wisely and know you can always choose again.
The Holy Spirit asks of you but this; bring to Him every secret you have locked away from Him. Open every door to Him, and bid Him enter the darkness and lighten it away. At your request He enters gladly. He brings the light to darkness if you make the darkness OPEN to Him. But what you hide He cannot look upon. For He sees for YOU, and unless you look WITH Him He cannot see. The vision of Christ is not for Him alone, but for Him with YOU. Bring, therefore, all your dark and secret thoughts to Him, and look upon them WITH Him. He holds the light, and you the darkness. They CANNOT coexist when both of you together look on them. His judgement MUST prevail, and He will GIVE it to you as you join your perception to His. Joining with Him in seeing is the way in which you learn to share with Him the interpretation of perception that leads to knowledge. T: 14.3
"Yet is salvation easily achieved, for anyone is free to change his mind, and all his thoughts change with it. Now the source of thought has shifted, for to change your mind means you have changed the source of all ideas you think or ever thought or yet will think. You free the past from what you thought before. You free the future from all ancient thoughts of seeking what you do not want to find.
The present now remains the only time. Here in the present is the world set free. For as you let the past be lifted and release the future from your ancient fears, you find escape and give it to the world." L: 132
