A Course in Miracle: Lesson 249

Lesson 249

Forgiveness ends all suffering and loss.

“Father, we would return our minds to You.  We have betrayed them, held them in a vise of bitterness, and frightened them with thoughts of violence and death.  Now would we rest again in You, as You created us” (ACIM Lesson 249 2:1-3).

The only end to this world is through forgiveness.  If you truly desire to see a more peaceful world, begin within.  Love yourself for What you truly are and for what you have not done.  Releasing yourself from any misery, even that instigated by another, releases the entire world.  When you wake up to the Truth, you will see that there is no need for anger, sadness, suffering, loss, lack, or unworthiness.  It is all a charade we have painted over Heaven.

“Forgiveness paints a picture of a world where suffering is over, loss becomes impossible and anger makes no sense.  Attack is gone, and madness has an end” (ACIM Lesson 249 1:1-2).

Joy and love are not far.  It takes no distance to reach your abundance.  It is just a loving breath away.  Today, give it a try, as you exhale any anger or sadness, releasing it from your experience, while with the inhale, breathe in the Love that You are.  Your forgiveness ends all madness and welcomes all Truth, without you traveling anywhere.  The world is your mirror and waits for your light to shine through your forgiveness.

“The world becomes a place of joy, abundance, charity and endless giving.  It is now so like Heaven that it quickly is transformed into the light that it reflects.  And so the journey which the Son of God began has ended in the light from which he came” (ACIM Lesson 249 1:5-7).

The journey Home is within.  To see a world laced with heaven, look no further than your Self.  Return your mind to your Creator and welcome the new world.  Namaste.
