Forgive the world, and you will understand that everything

Forgive the world, and you will understand that everything that God created cannot have an end, and nothing He did not create is real.

In this one sentence is our course explained. In this one sentence is our practicing given its one direction. And in this one sentence is the Holy Spirit’s whole curriculum specified exactly as it is.

I Will Judge Nothing That Occurs

Today I will judge nothing that occurs.

I will be honest with myself today. I will not think that I already know what must remain beyond my present grasp. I will not think I understand the whole from bits of my perception, which are all that I can see. Today I recognize that this is so. And so I am relieved of judgments that I cannot make. Thus do I free myself and what I look upon, to be in peace as God created us.

Father, today I leave creation free to be itself. I honor all its parts, in which I am included. We are one because each part contains Your memory, and truth must shine in all of us as one.

~Jesus, A Course in Miracles L.243

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.

What you invest in guilt you withdraw from God. Seek not Atonement in further separation.

God’s attraction for you remains unlimited, but because your power, being of God, is as great as God’s, you can turn away from love. What you invest in guilt you withdraw from God. And your sight grows weak and dim and limited, for you have attempted to separate God and Child, and limit Their communication. Seek not Atonement in further separation.
