You have not left me comfortless

Love, reflected in forgiveness here, reminds me You have given me a way to find Your peace again. I am redeemed when I elect to follow in this way.

You have not left me comfortless. I have within me both the mem­ory of You, and One Who leads me to it. Lord, I would hear Your Voice and find Your peace today.

~ Jesus, A Course in Miracles

God does not forgive because He has never condemned

God does not forgive because He has never condemned. And there must be condemnation before forgiveness is necessary.

Forgiveness is the great need of this world, but that is because it is a world of illusions. Those who forgive are thus releasing themselves from illusions, while those who withhold forgiveness are binding themselves to them. As you condemn only yourself, so do you forgive only yourself.

Yet although God does not forgive, His Love is nevertheless the basis of forgiveness.

Death Is Not A Way Out

Those who commit suicide, in any manner, seek to end the intolerable psychological pain of their guilt and suffering. Since their unconscious guilt remains intact, they merely end up reincarnating and keeping the problem unresolved. Death is not a way out. True forgiveness is the way out.

~ Arten, The Disappearance of the Universe

Laughter is definitely of the Holy Spirit

Laughter is definitely of the Holy Spirit, as long as it is not at someone else’s expense. Laughter helps you feel and experience that this world cannot be taken seriously. It’s too crazy! It’s worthy of laughter, not tears. Tears make it real and keep you stuck here.
