God is the Love in which I forgive.
God does not forgive because He has never condemned. And there must be condemnation before forgiveness is necessary. Forgiveness is the great need of this world, but that is because it is a world of illusions. Those who forgive are thus releasing themselves from illusions, while those who withhold forgiveness are binding themselves to them. As you condemn only yourself, so do you forgive only yourself.

Christ Consciousness and Humanity
Find the doorway to this reality through your heart. Enter and be still. Find out what manner of being you are. I have been beaming my signals to you steadily ever since you first left the Garden, but their message has been faint among the loud clamoring of your many words. Now, with my approach, these signals are increasing in amplitude. Soon it will be they who drown out the many words. Tune into these signals and learn about yourselves. There is much that you have forgotten.
If an acorn falls to the ground among many other acorns, and becomes so involved with its relationships to the other acorns that it clings ever to its definition of itself as an acorn, then that acorn will never die as an acorn, and will never discover that in God’s definition, it is not an acorn, but a mighty oak. Do not be like the acorn in this parable and cling to your larval self-images until you are rotting and crawling with worms. Release your childish conceptions and allow the Creator to define you in his terms.

The Games were meant to showcase the country’s economic prowess, but they revealed its insufficient preparedness instead.
For many countries, the prospect of hosting the Summer Olympics is sought after as the maximum consecration of their place as a modern power. In the past century, this was notoriously evident at the Berlin Olympics, of 1936, which Adolf Hitler hoped to use to show off the Olympian superiority of his master race. Eight years ago, the Beijing Olympics, with their showy inaugural ceremony and no-expenses-spared sports venues, were China’s statement about its place on the world scene. When Brazil was selected as the host of this Olympiad, seven years ago, it seemed fitting that the great South American nation—much admired for many things, including its people’s renowned charisma—should have the honor of hosting the 2016 Games.
The American Presidency
Sometimes we get where we are going by knowing what we want; sometimes we get there by knowing what we don’t want.
Not all Presidents are missed once they leave the White House. US News average the results of five major Presidential polls to make its own list of America’s worst presidents.
