Thanks for sharing this! I really appreciate this! So wonderful!
I believe that happens when we let ourselves off the hook, and realize we are "Good and worthy".
A Course In Miracles has a different definition for forgiveness than the way in which people normally think of it. It would define forgiveness as basically letting go. You forgive the person, not for what you think he did, but for what he never really did in truth. The truth is, you are spirit and spirit can not be hurt. Spirit is invulnerable. Returning to this innocent perception and seeing your brother as Spirit sees him (innocent/whole/perfect) is the essence of what forgiveness is all about, instead of seeing him with the eyes of the Ego which looks upon him with judgment.
To forgive is to let go of the past, and to let go of your judgments, and to be in the now with innocent perception. And when you do that you will let go of all negative thoughts and feelings which bring you out of the vortex. Forgiving brings you back into the vortex, back into alignment, back to peace.
I like what the book "The Voice for Love" says. It says, "forgiveness is not a God concept". Too many people think we need God's forgiveness. If you believe as I do, that God is pure unconditional love, you don't really need God's forgiveness, in a sense, because God's forgiveness is freely given - you don't have to ask for it. The only person that needs to forgive is you. You need to forgive yourself and you need to forgive others. By forgive I mean letting go of grievances, so that you can return to peace - that's where God would have you be.
