For many years of my spiritual search, I was looking for that “magic wand” that would make things better. It would be mine, and I could use it to soothe, heal, and change any hurt, mine or yours. “Forgiveness ends all suffering and loss” by painting a different picture of the world, a different illusion. The bad things are gone and “The world becomes a place of joy, abundance, charity and endless giving.” The world becomes so much like Heaven that “it quickly is transformed into the light that it reflects.” We have un-Banged the Big, and are back at the light of the “nothingness” from which the world was born, “the deathless,” the “eternity consciousness.” “Now we would rest again in You, as You created us.”
My world is roiling with change. My betrayed and bitter mind is no longer frightened. The detachment that used to be apathy, depression, is now just a spectator’s view from “above the battlefield.” It has been a conscious choice to pull my mind out of the vice and rest it in blessed focus and support. What joy to find that so many like-minds are waiting to share inspiration and their encouragement. Yes, my world is Becoming. And there are those I love whom I have promised to help, promised we would find that magic wand together. The magic is a miracle, a changed mind. The miracle is True Forgiveness.
“Do you remember, just before we entered the world, we promised each other that the first one who would awaken in the dream would awaken the other? And do you also remember when we met after this life, when you said, ‘Why didn’t you try harder? You promised!’ Well, I’m here telling you: This. Is. It. Now. Just as we promised each other, we are in the dream NOW! I’m trying . . . I’m really trying . . . I’ll just wait for as long as it takes, just like you asked me to.” ~ Jean Charles Vitye’. Lesson 249.
