Lesson 122

“Forgiveness offers everything I want.”

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 in 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.

Forgiveness lets the veil be lifted up which hides the Face of
Christ from those who look with unforgiving eyes upon the world.
It lets you recognize the Son of God, and clears your memory of all
dead thoughts so that remembrance of your Father can arise across
the threshold of your mind.

What would you want forgiveness cannot give? What gifts but
these are worthy to be sought? What fancied value, trivial effect, or
transient promise never to be kept, can hold more hope than what
forgiveness brings? Why would you seek an answer other than the
answer that will answer everything? Here is the perfect answer, given
to imperfect questions, meaningless requests, half-hearted willingness
to hear, and less than halfway diligence and partial trust.

Here is the answer! Seek for it no more. You will not find
another one instead. God’s plan for your salvation cannot change, nor
can it fail. Be thankful it remains exactly as He planned it.
Changelessly it stands before you, like an open door with warmth
and welcome calling from beyond the doorway, bidding you to enter
in and make yourself at home where you belong.

Here is the answer! Would you stand outside while all of Heaven
waits for you within? Forgive and be forgiven. As you give you will
receive. There is no plan but this for the salvation of the Son of God.

Let us today rejoice that this is so, for here we have an answer, clear
and plain, beyond deceit in its simplicity. All the complexities the
world has spun of fragile cobwebs disappear before the power and
the majesty of this extremely simple statement of the truth.

Here is the answer! Do not turn away in aimless wandering
again. Accept salvation now. It is the gift of God and not the world.
The world can give no gifts of any value to a mind which has
received what God has given as its own. God wills salvation be
received today, and that the intricacies of your dreams no longer hide
their nothingness from you.

Open your eyes today, and look upon a happy world of safety
and of peace. Forgiveness is the means by which it comes to take the
place of hell. In quietness it rises up to greet your open eyes, and fill
your heart with deep tranquility as ancient truths, forever newly
born, arise in your awareness. What you will remember then can
never be described. Yet your forgiveness offers it to you.

Remembering the gifts forgiveness gives, we undertake our
practicing today with hope and faith that this will be the day
salvation will be ours. Earnestly and gladly will we seek for it today,
aware we hold the key within our hands, accepting Heaven’s answer
to the hell we made, but where we would remain no more.

Morning and evening do we gladly give a quarter of an hour to
the search in which the end of hell is guaranteed. Begin in
hopefulness, for we have reached the turning point at which the road
becomes far easier. And now the way is short that yet we travel. We
are close indeed to the appointed ending of the dream.

Sink into happiness as you begin these practice periods, for they
hold out the sure rewards of questions answered, and what your
acceptance of the answer brings. Today it will be given you to feel the
peace forgiveness offers, and the joy the lifting of the veil holds out
to you.

Before the light you will receive today the world will fade until it
disappears, and you will see another world arise you have no words to
picture. Now we walk directly into light, and we receive the gifts
which have been held in store for us since time began, kept waiting for
today. Forgiveness offers everything you want. Today all things you
want are given you.

Let not your gifts recede throughout the day, as you return again
to meet a world of shifting change and bleak appearances. Retain your
gifts in clear awareness as you see the changeless in the heart of change;
the light of truth behind appearances. Be tempted not to let your gifts
slip by, and drift into forgetfulness but hold them firmly in your mind
by your attempts to think of them at least a minute as each quarter of
an hour passes by.

Remind yourself how precious are these gifts with this reminder,
which has power to hold your gifts in your awareness through the day:

“Forgiveness offers everything I want.
Today I have accepted this as true.
Today I have received the gifts of God.”
