Fear binds the world. Forgiveness sets it free.
The ego makes illusions. Truth undoes its evil dreams by shining them away. Truth never makes attack. It merely is. And by its presence is the mind recalled from fantasies, awaking to the real. Forgiveness bids this presence enter in, and take its rightful place within the mind. Without forgiveness is the mind in chains, believing in its own futility. Yet with forgiveness does the light shine through the dream of darkness, offering it hope, and light shine through the dream of darkness, offering it hope and giving it the means to realise the freedom that is its inheritance.
We would not bind the world again today. Fear holds it prisoner. And yet Your Love has given us the means to set it free. Father, we would release it now. For as we offer freedom, it is given us. And we would not remain as prisoners, while You are holding freedom out to us.
Yesterday I had a complete plan of the last story; today I began writing in earnest. Hit my word count before one o’clock but alas had a lot of other things to deal with today. Lots of opportunities to practice forgiveness while dealing with council workers over the phone.
Met with a friend, a Nigerian prince, who said his sisters funeral earlier this month made him realise that the important thing in life is to know yourself and to help make a difference in other people’s lives. It shouldn’t always have to take a death for this message to come home, but better then than never. Love is everything.
