Forgiveness Offers Everything I Want


A Course In Miracles WB 122.1-2:

“What could you want forgiveness cannot give? Do you want peace? Forgiveness offers it. Do you want happiness, a quiet mind, a certainty of purpose, and a sense of worth and beauty that transcends the world? Do you want care and safety, and the warmth of sure protection always? Do you want a quietness that cannot be disturbed, a gentleness that never can be hurt, a deep, abiding comfort, and a rest so perfect it can never be upset?

All this forgiveness offers you, and more. It sparkles on your eyes as you awake, and gives you joy with which to meet the day. It soothes your forehead while you sleep, and rests upon your eyelids so you see no dreams of fear and evil, malice and attack. And when you wake again, it offers you another day of happiness and peace. All this forgiveness offers you, and more.”

Many of us are yearning for a lighter, more expansive experience, a profound healing, a final unraveling of the enmeshed, knotted threads that have held our third dimensional world together for millenia. We long for beauty, self-discovery, and for the freedom to share what we are holding deep within our hearts. Some days we feel our patience diminishing, but in quiet, reflective moments we know that, as with all manifestations, the New Earth we long for must be birthed first within our minds and hearts before it can be expressed in the outer, material realm.

Whether or not we are aware of it, we are collectively and individually in the throes of this internal birthing process now. Life is presenting each of us with the struggles, opportunities, and choices we need to experience in order to polarize, evolve, and create. Those of us who have chosen the positive polarity and are consciously choosing to transmute darkness into light are required to go within, to allow our emotions to surface, and to offer acceptance to all of it. As we witness and are subjected to the energies of fear and control dominating the outer experience, we are invited to forgive, though not in the traditional sense. A Course in Miracles offers us a much more direct, powerful process of forgiveness, a quantum form of forgiveness that opens us to the shining, miracle mindset of the higher dimensions.

What is this quantum forgiveness, and how does it work?

Quantum forgiveness is a method to recall our divinity, unity, and power through the acknowledgement of what is true, or real, rather than what is false, or based in illusion. Instead of making the dualistic world real and offering a kind of martyr’s forgiveness to the offenders in our lives, quantum forgiveness views the world of duality as a complete and harmless illusion. When you react with quantum forgiveness to a given situation, you remind yourself that the universe is a dream and that YOU are the cosmic dreamer. From this divine vantage point, there are no perpetrators or victims in actuality to forgive, only brothers and sisters faithfully acting out the roles you have assigned to them. Quantum forgiveness focuses on love and unity rather than fear and separation, thus freeing the dreamer and the dream, seemingly fragmented aspects of the One Infinite Creator, from the third dimensional matrix in one fell swoop.

The Course’s version of forgiveness is its central teaching, and it can be summed up as follows:

“Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.”

If this message resonates deeply with you, it is because your soul is urging you to open, expand, and encompass more light. Perhaps the divisiveness and restriction you see in the outer world is inviting you to go within and commit to a spiritual practice. If so, try focusing on quantum forgiveness daily, and watch how your world transforms. Each time you are triggered by an outer event, remind yourself that you made it up. If you read a headline that brings up fear, hopelessness, or anger, remind yourself that it is only a dream, and that YOU are its cosmic dreamer. If a masked neighbor crosses the street to avoid you and you detect a twinge of resentment, take a deep breath and tell yourself that you created the situation for healing. Feel the resentment without blaming anyone or identifying with it yourself.

Whether or not you believe the world is an illusion of your making, affirming that it is so will bring about magical results. You may notice an actual physical lightness as you allow your old belief system of duality and separation to gradually begin to unravel. It is common to feel disoriented at first, but as you continue to embrace this new perspective, and as you let go of the ego’s fear of loss, you will behold more beauty and vibrancy in the world around you. Colors will appear richer than ever before, and objects will shine with a subtle light that unifies all that you see.

Quantum forgiveness is a radical way of perceiving reality, and, when focused on with dedication, it can lead to profound transformation. When practiced at a level of mastery, quantum forgiveness collapses karma and opens the door to higher realms of consciousness. If you are eager to let go of third dimensional programs that uphold the concept of separation through fear, victimization, judgement, defense and attack, and if you are ready to embrace a completely new, perception-altering paradigm of love and unity, then quantum forgiveness is for you. May it serve as a powerful portal from the experience of the lower dimensions to a radiant, peaceful, and exhilarating experience of the beautiful New Earth we hold within our hearts.
