I let forgiveness rest upon all things,
For thus forgiveness will be given me.
“I thank You, Father, for Your plan to save me from the hell I made. It is not real. And You have given me the means to prove its unreality to me. The key is in my hand, and I have reached the door beyond which lies the end of dreams. I stand before the gate of Heaven, wondering if I should enter in and be at home. Let me not wait again today. Let me forgive all things, and let creation be as You would have it be and as it is. Let me remember that I am Your Son, and opening the door at last, forget illusions in the blazing light of truth, as memory of You returns to me” (ACIM Lesson 342 1:1-8).
The door of Heaven is before us. It is the door of everything: love, peace, joy, tranquility, happiness, safety, truth, reality…Home. We do not even have to knock, as we already have been given the key, forgiveness. We don’t even turn back to look at what is behind us. We just close our eyes, extend a prayer forgiveness and remembrance to the steps that brought us to this door way, take a breath, turn the key, and we are Home.
Right where you are, rest in the peace forgiveness, forgiveness of you and your brothers and sisters. In doing so, you just did it! You turned the key. The other side of the door is merely a peaceful shift away. You, and I, have no need to hold onto anything unlike love anymore. We know too much now. We know too much to go back. We now hold the key to walk forward through the door. Today, together, let us turn the key and walk in. Namaste.
