Thoughts on Lesson 63

WBNewsletterForgiveness, it is a choice and when I made the decision for forgiveness, I am making the decision for peace. We can experience this in various ways in our lives. In a class session some time ago, we dialogued on how we can be the rock of peace in our lives. Various examples at the time were potential serious health issues, rental rate hikes in a senior citizen living complex, traveling to meet with family to empty a deceased relatives home, or dealing with downsizing and relocation. All of the situations are students faced seemed to be different on the outside, different forms, yet, the feelings behind them were all similar. There was feelings of guilt, trepidation, worry, concern, fear, anxiety and more. It didn’t matter what the form presented, the feelings behind we could all relate. We could also relate to the idea in today’s lesson that when we forgive we can be the light to others. 

As we ended the class, we were aware that we were indeed the light of peace to others in these situations. We never know how the miracle touches others. But when we allow the shift to happen in our own mind, it does. We can remain peaceful despite the outside circumstances and help others along the path. As this lesson sates, “I am the means God has appointed for the salvation of the world.” I am here to be truly helpful to myself and to others. When I open my heart to forgiveness, it can change everything. The important factor is that we become aware of what we are feeling, we acknowledge it, accept it and allow the Holy Spirit to look with us upon it. Then as we see differently we forgive, the light is seen and salvation occurs. What purpose could we have but to bring greater happiness to the world?

Peace,

Rev. Deb
