Envision Others Freedom

One Step at a TimeAct without doing;
work without effort.
Think of the small as large
and the few as many.
Confront the difficult
while it is still easy;
accomplish the great task
by a series of small acts.
The Master never reaches for the great;
thus she achieves greatness.
When she runs into a difficulty,
she stops and gives herself to it.
She doesn’t cling to her own comfort;
thus problems are no problem for her.
Tao Te Ching v63

Illusion and TruthForgive
As I forgive, I am open to the peace and joy of God.
Why does forgiveness sometimes seem so difficult? Another person caused me harm by what they did or said, and I may have held on to a feeling of resentment for days, weeks, or years. I may question whether that person deserves my forgiveness.
A better question might be, Do I deserve to hold on to the pain of resentment and anger? In Truth, I know that holding on only feeds my feelings of injustice and robs me of my peace and joy.
Jesus taught us to forgive over and over. Forgiveness is an expression of the love of God. So instead, I make a new choice today. I envision others no longer bound by my resentment. I forgive them. As I free them, I am freed. I am open to the peace and joy of God.
For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.—Matthew 6:14

Healing 6The light of the world brings peace to every mind
through my forgiveness.
How holy are you who have the power to bring peace to every mind! How blessed are you who can learn to recognize the means for letting this be done through you! What purpose could you have that would bring you greater happiness?
You are indeed the light of the world with such a function. The Son of God looks to you for his redemption. It is yours to give him, for it belongs to you. Accept no trivial purpose or meaningless desire in its place, or you will forget your function and leave the Son of God in hell. This is no idle request that is being asked of you. You are being asked to accept salvation that it may be yours to give.
Recognizing the importance of this function, we will be happy to remember it very often today. We will begin the day by acknowledging it, and close the day with the thought of it in our awareness. And throughout the day we will repeat this as often as we can:
The light of the world brings peace to every mind
through my forgiveness. I am the means God has
appointed for the salvation of the world.
If you close your eyes, you will probably find it easier to let the related thoughts come to you in the minute or two that you should devote to considering this. Do not, however, wait for such an opportunity. No chance should be lost for reinforcing today’s idea. Remember that God’s Son looks to you for his salvation. And Who but your Self must be His Son?

May it comfort you in times of stress and difficulty to know that all you suffer and endure, all the self-discipline that you go through is worthwhile; it is not in vain, for it is carrying you forward and upward to the glorious, happy, perfect life. Keep bravely, courageously and hopefully on with your life, knowing that you are placed in the position that you hold through your past karma.
