We have graduated, after a fashion. “Words will mean little now . . . For now we seek direct experience of truth alone.” Remember I said that last time through the Workbook, this is where I got stuck? This time, I know why. Holy Spirit sent teachers with Joel Goldsmith’s words to explain the “how” to my sticky brain. We’re in for a wonderful ride!
We start with focus on forgiveness, and we’re going to “experience” a lot. For now, I want to leave you with wise words of experience from two Facebook friends more eloquent than I. First, a beautiful example of forgiveness by way of remembering to laugh, from Myron Jones:
“Yesterday, while I was distracted by my need to see my problems as caused by something outside me, I couldn’t forgive. I was trying to hold two completely opposing thoughts . . . I was trying to forgive and at the same time, judge. This morning all I wanted was forgiveness, and suddenly I was laughing at my obstinacy of yesterday. What seemed impossible yesterday, today simply is.”
And here, a simple equation of forgiveness by Priscilla Patsy Kapoor: “If you let go a little, you will have a little peace. If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace. If you let go completely, you will have complete peace.” And now, we wait, “and expect our Father to reveal Himself, as He promised.” You are the receptacle; how much Heaven can you hold? Lesson 221.
