Enlightened to our bodies new purpose, our understanding into universal forgiveness goes deeper. Constructs of Truth interact, as we go deeper in one area, we go deeper into another. This forgiveness is one of our main functions in the dream because its the release out of fear and into divine love, out of the dream of illusions and into the reality of Truth. What we loose is loosed, what we bind is bound. Our will is powerful.
Universal forgiveness is the key which opens the door to our divine Mind. This ubiquitous forgiveness unlocks our ability to see through the worn and tattered skins of every soul as it removes our mental hold on erroneous past learning to see according to Truth. In divine forgiveness, we perceive all souls as extensions of God’s holiness because they are his holy thought, which can’t be tainted. In seeing others’ holiness, we see our own because how we see others, defines how we see ourself, and vice versa. This holy vision of others is the Spirit of God looking through us in Truth upon creation, therefore its power to create all things new is unlimited.
The teaching of divine forgiveness within our minds is like walking through a long corridor in which we push through many layers of illusions created by our faulty belief system. As our false beliefs are challenged with the Truth we know but don’t yet see, the illusion seemingly closes in around us. However, with the Spirit of Truth’s perfect guidance that cannot fail, we prevail to awaken to our true divine Mind, from which arises the kingdom of Truth (Heaven).
Through divine forgiveness the four pillars of the illusions of the dream are replaced by those of the reality of Truth. 1) Truth takes the place of all erroneous past learning, 2) the true divine Self replaces the false image of ourself formed out of past learning, 3) the eternal present replaces time, which extended the past into the future, and 4) emergence of the divine life force replaces striving to control the future because of fear created by past learning.
When we are unaware of Truth, we strive to control the future because of the many forms fear created through our past learning. When the past teaches us we are weak, vulnerable, limited, little, rejected, and finite then fear is created along with a desire to control our future to mitigate the fear. In this control, we attempt to manipulate the effects of time because time is the past extended forward. As long as we engage these four interworking dynamics, the gate of heaven appears to be locked. From this perspective, we are separated from heaven, which is the immersion of divine love into all our being, expression and life. In the perceived absence of divine love, fear abides and blinds us from entering the present moment, created in ever-present divine love. This holy, divine love is the life force of creation. It’s the essential characteristic of God that is the sum of all other aspects of his character. It’s the Cause to the effect of us experiencing the attributes of Truth: invulnerable peace, transcendent joy, eternal beauty, invincible vitality, perfection, wholeness, perfect abundance, freedom, strength, timelessness, and love.
The teaching of divine forgiveness leads us to the resting place of the eternal present as it frees us and others from past learning and all it projected into the future. Being present-minded and free from past learning, our mind engages the Truth that dwells in the present. Our past learning and its projected fear no longer create our current state, but the living Truth unfolds each perfect present moment through emergence. We are Truth’s extension, which is divine love’s expression.
In stillness and listening to his voice above all others, the Spirit of Truth gives us the keys to the kingdom. The four pillars of Truth are revealed through the Spirit’s teaching of universal forgiveness. When we can recognize the pillars of Truth, the Divine Self, the Eternal Present, and Emergence, we possess the key and open the door to the eternal present, created for us in divine love. Through this open door, the eternal Light shines through us, and equally upon all.
“And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
~ Matthew 16:19
