The past is over. It can touch me not.

The past is over. It can touch me not.

Let me not look upon a past that is not there. For you have offered me Your Own replacement, in a present world the past has left untouched and free of sin. Here is the end of guilt. And here am I made ready for Your Final step. Shall I demand that You wait longer for Your Child to find the loveliness You planned to be the end of all dreams and pain?

Forgiveness Ends All Suffering

Forgiveness paints a picture of a world where suffering is over, loss becomes impossible and anger makes no sense. Attack is gone, and madness has an end. What suffering is now conceivable? What loss can be sustained? The world becomes a place of joy, abundance, charity and endless giving. It is now so like to Heaven that it quickly is transformed into the light it reflects. And so the journey which the Child of God began has ended in the light from which it came.

Father, we would return our minds to You. We have betrayed them, held them in a vise of bitterness, and frightened them with thoughts of violence and death. Now would we rest again in You, as You created us.
