I have a function God would have me fill.
It is particular to Me, and only I can do it. This is true for You belovèd Others. For each of Us is very special to Our Father-Mother.
1 It is your Father’s holy Will that you complete Himself – for You are an intrinsic Part of God and so important – and that your Self shall be His sacred Son, forever pure as He, of love created and in love preserved, extending love, creating in its name, forever one with God and with your Self. What else could You do but the Presence of His Love eternally. You have no other Self but this One. It is the only One that You do need, and It is One as You eternally. This Self never dies, thus You don’t need to! Yet what can such a function mean within a world of envy, hatred, and attack? Therefore you have a function in the world in its own terms. A quality that every One can feel; Love is the answer. For who can understand a language far beyond his simple grasp? For Love is simple when it is given universally. Simple to give and easy to receive.
And what shall the method be for giving? What else could it be but Your forgiveness? Let Us continue:
2 Forgiveness represents your function here. It is Your most holy occupation. It is not God’s creation, – which is already and forever the most pure perfection – for it is the means by which untruth can be undone. And who would pardon Heaven? For Heaven is another word for Truth. Yet on earth you need the means to let illusion go. For You believe Your illusions are truly reality. And they cannot be. Creation merely waits for your return to be acknowledged, not to be complete. Your wish to be Home becomes God’s treasure.
3 Creation cannot even be conceived of in the world. For It is pure Love, which the world is hate. It has no meaning here. None whatsoever! Although It’s right here. Forgiveness is the closest it can come to earth. For being Heaven-borne, it has no form at all. Repeating MySelf: none whatsoever! Yet God created One Who has the power to translate into form the wholly formless. What He makes are dreams, but of a kind so close to waking that the light of day already shines in them. And eyes already opening behold the joyful sights their offerings contain. Those of You who’ve already had those experiences will gladly understand. They await You all!
4 Forgiveness gently looks upon all things unknown in Heaven, sees them disappear, – in Love’s Presence, hatred disappears; in Life’s Presence, death just simply vanishes – and leaves the world a clean and unmarked slate on which the Word of God can now replace the senseless symbols written there before. (The gibberish coming from the ego.) Forgiveness is the means by which the fear of death is overcome – leading to death’s total disappearance – because it holds no fierce attraction now, and guilt is gone. Who wants to die when They’re really happy? ‘Dying’ is only for the inly sad. Who could accede to death when their cup is full, running over? Certainly not You!
5 Forgiveness lets the body be perceived as what it is—a simple teaching aid to be laid by when learning is complete, but hardly changing him who learns at all. Then what will You be? Are You wondering? How will You manage without a body? The whole idea seems just incomprehensible to You! Well do not worry. You will still be You! This is My promise.
You will still have all Your senses and be clearly identifiable as You. And just as precious.
Think beams of Light and breezes. Fragrance, music, gentleness, and flavour. Each One of these qualities exquisitely unique to You. And there is no confusion, only joy. We All know each Other intimately. The mind without the body cannot make mistakes. Because it has returned to Its natural condition, which means It is as God has eternally ordained It to Be: as Living Spirit. You’ve not lost, but gained. It cannot think that it will die nor be the prey of merciless attack. Anger becomes impossible, and where is terror then? What fears could still assail those who have lost the source of all attack, the core of anguish, and the seat of fear? Fear has been dismissed! What can harm Spirit?
6 Only forgiveness can relieve the mind of thinking that the body is its home. Anger has no place in Love, none at all. Therefore, this makes forgiveness the open door which I have set before You for the past two thousand years.1 And who yet has entered through this wide open door to Heaven and remained there, not giving in to death, but continually embracing Life? Only forgiveness can restore the peace that God intended for His holy Son. Ahh! Now You understand My harping so much on forgiveness. Only forgiveness can persuade the Son to look again upon his holiness. Which appears when anger is summarily dismissed by Love. With anger gone, you will indeed perceive that for Christ’s vision and the gift of sight no sacrifice was asked, and only pain was lifted from a sick and tortured mind. Anger is not fun; only self-righteous.
7 Is this unwelcome? Is it to be feared? Or is it to be hoped for, met with thanks, and joyously accepted? We are one and therefore give up nothing. But we have indeed been given everything by God. Yet do we need forgiveness to perceive that this is so. Without its kindly light – of Love happily replacing anger – we grope in darkness, using reason but to justify our rage and our attack. Our understanding is so limited that what we think we understand is but confusion born of error. This is the so-called “human condition”, which is inhumane. We are lost in mists of shifting dreams and fearful thoughts, our eyes shut tight against the light, our minds engaged in worshipping what is not there, nor was it ever. Only Good is Real.
8 Who can be born again in Christ but him who has forgiven everyone he sees or thinks of or imagines? Who could be set free while he imprisons anyone? A jailer is not free, for he is bound together with his prisoner. How many unforgiven are We keeping within Our jails? Why be a jailer? He must be sure that he does not escape, and so he spends his time in keeping watch on him. The bars which limit him become the world in which the jailer lives, along with him. And it is on his freedom that the way to liberty depends for both of them. Only the angry can really forgive.
9 Therefore hold no one prisoner. (Don’t shoot them either!) Release instead of bind, for thus are you made free. The way is simple. Every time you feel a stab of anger, realize you hold a sword above your head. For anger takes You prisoner and then becomes Your jailer. And it will fall or be averted as you choose to be condemned or free. Thus does each one who seems to tempt you to be angry represent your savior from the prison-house of death. And so you owe him thanks instead of pain. Forgiving Him can free You from the dream.
It’s truly worth it.
10 Be merciful today. Be holy, be kind to every Other. For They need Your Love. The Son of God deserves your mercy. The best gift You can give Him is Your gentle lovingkindness. It is he who asks that you accept the way to freedom now. Why dally longer? Why not be happy this very minute! Deny him not. His Father’s Love for him belongs to you. Your function here on earth is only to forgive him, that you may accept him back as your identity. For S/He is One with You. He is as God created him. I’s lots better than a matter body! And you are what he is. Forgive him now his sins, and you will see that you are one with him. For We All are One.
