As our mind seeks to express the true Self, it comes up against all its darkened beliefs about the false self. Awakening to its timeless nature, the mind can no longer concurrently hold opposing attributes of the self as true like it previously did when they were separated by the illusion of time and justified by relative truth. In the borderland, the mind makes the mental passage of Divine Forgiveness, by which the true Self’s timeless qualities arise as the self’s true reflection.
Divine Forgiveness is the process of revealing and releasing false judgments that formed darkened beliefs about the self, and instead accepting the self’s true, ever-present state of divine perfection. Divine Forgiveness and the miracles of healing it creates are neither aspects of the temporary realm of illusion nor the eternal reality of Truth. They only exist in the borderland as operatives that transition the mind from the thought-system of illusion to the living thought-system. They purify the inner and outer worlds from all that isn’t, with all that is.
Divine forgiveness is only possible by the living thought-system (Christ Mind), in which we see according to Truth and not illusions. It isn’t pardoning a wrong, making the wrong and the loss/hurt it created real, and then trying make it right by “letting it go”. This concept of forgiveness stems from a belief in opposites (relative truth) that upholds an illusionary reality.
In an illusion nothing exists as it appears, even though it’s sensationally experienced. An illusion dissolves when the lies upholding it are revealed. The quintessential work of Divine Forgiveness is revealing lies that present themselves as true, and replacing them with Absolute Truth. It’s a mental purge in which the Light of Truth encounters our erroneous beliefs and their effects head on, so that our mind is purified of their destructive dominance.
Opposites don’t exist within Truth’s living-thought system. A mind governed by this thought-system doesn’t create errors, wrongs (sins), or their corresponding effects of loss. As our mind transitions into Truth, it moves out of the past where all our darkened beliefs dwell and into the Present Moment that only contains Truth’s Living Light. In this timeless space free of past judgments, the mind sits as a living gate to the divine potentials for the current present moment, so the next moment is born of Truth and not past judgments. As Truth’s Light expands through the mind, consuming all darkened beliefs, it dissolves the potential for error. As a result, our energetic atmosphere begins to harmonize into its true state of perfection, manifesting a comprehensive and irrevocable “healing”.
Divine forgiveness is a challenging passage. Because the mind continually operated by darkened beliefs, it strengthened its judgments about the self and the loss they created. These beliefs manifested endless destructive outer appearances that served as a cloud of witnesses to the mind’s beliefs so that it became bound to its judgments. As a result, the mind believed in an illusion of the self that never existed in Truth, yet because of its belief it made this self experientially “real”. As a result, the mind kept the self in an energetic atmosphere of guilt, whether being a martyr to its own guilt or to another’s, which created the continual need for healing.
As the Light of Truth grows brighter through its interlocking logic, the mind clearly discerns its only error was believing the self was something it wasn’t. Though we outwardly experience an illusion of the false self’s attributes, the Light of Truth manifests a deep knowing that usurps all darkened beliefs. We are the shining of Truth’s Living Light. This knowing is the beginning of creation’s awakening. In this awareness, we recognize outer expressions reflecting the false self, whether they are our own or another’s, aren’t our true expressions, but reflections of imagined self-concepts. As we accept who we are in Truth, we extend the Living Light within us to others, and this mercy begins to decorate our reality with healing miracles.
Divine forgiveness purifies every thought with the recognition that there is only Truth’s Pure Light. When this Absolute Truth is experienced, we are no longer overcome by the effects of past “wrongs”. Instead a rejuvenated reality enfolds us in a magnificence beyond our mind’s ability to imagine. Through divine emergence, what we once judged as loss becomes means to greater gain. In Truth there is only divine abundance that perfectly serves our ever-present perfection and purpose.
Divine forgiveness brings a depth of renewal that rewrites our story from one of judgment to one authored in Divine Love.
