Forgiveness I

“If it were really clear that holding on to judgments brings pain, and that letting go of them brings happiness, there would be no problem.” Course in Miracles.

“Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.” Bruce Lee

We think forgiveness neutralizes the mistakes of others. OK. But what if it also and more importantly, neutralizes our judgments of others and ourselves? Thoughts and actions are essentially neutral until we or someone else judges them, right? Even murder may have an acceptable explanation, like self defense.

Judgment is a heavy burden. It’s purpose is to establish guilt, justify punishment and hopefully bring change. But, how satisfying is cringing change wrought from guilt and punishment? For routine, day-to-day mistakes and affronts, is judgment the best way to correct them? Isn’t forgiveness based on a clear understanding of what happened, genuine acceptance of responsibility and a desire to change better?

Power

The power within is the same power that holds the planets in place. Hard to believe. I often forget. I use that creative power every time I have a thought. Life is full of my creations. Arrogance? Ego? No, just the way it works. 

If I understand this, I can stop blaming and  being a victim and transform what’s not working for me by loving what is, as Byron Katie teaches, by taking responsibility for my thoughts and changing how I think. 

How I see myself – what I identify with – matters. I can choose to remember the power within, let go of my stinkin’ thinkin’ and be guided by the peace that passeth understanging to take the action that will work best for all concerned.

Formal Religions

Our reality as spirit – a Oneness joined as One – can only be glimpsed here. Therefore it makes itself known to us in a multiplicity of forms – different experience, bodies, and teachings. The challenge is not to make these differences significant. Unfortunately, formal religions do make the differences significant. They take the one message – the mystery of Oneness joined as One – and proclaim exclusivity – only they have the Answer.

Let’s honor the message and not make the forms significant.

The Veil

It’s impossible to experience Oneness for very long here in the world of flesh, blood and bone. For this is, by design, a world of separation. Yet even here, the veil of flesh, blood and bone may be lifted, and transcendent experiences of Oneness – a melody, a taste, a smile, a vision, a feeling, a scent – may be had. Oneness is spirit, not of this world, but when the veil is lifted we may experience it here and know it as ourSelf.

Constrasts and Contradictions

Don’t the contrasts and contradictions make your heart ache? Images of holiday cheer abound – happy families gathered around lit-up Christmas trees and tables full of food. People shopping (could it possibly be Christmas in America if people weren’t shopping?). Christmas carols with sweet sentiments. Then people voting not their gratitude, love and compassion, but their hate, blame and fear.

To me, this season if it were to be truly honored and taken to heart, would be only about all of humanity, all of our brothers and sisters, all those seeking, risking and yes ‘caravaning’ for a better, safer life. What is this bullshit about ‘illegals’? About race and religion? Are they not all our brothers and sisters? Can we not imagine ourselves in their places? Would we not seek freedom, opportunities and compassion as they do?

Sure there are chislers, cheats and liers among them. You find them everywhere, next door and especially in Washington. I often say to my wife as I behold the hypocracy of the American Dream from which my entire family of immigrants has benefited that if I were a black or other gendered I’d have been dead long ago, fighting for the dream and an end to the hypocracy and contradictions.

Thanksgiving

What are you grateful for right now?

You can have more than one thing. In fact, the more, the better.

I’m grateful for all the things – the many, many things, I take for granted. Trees, birds, clean air, sunlight, electricity. Water at the turn of the tap. Garbage pick-up. Road repair. Gas at nearby gas stations. Food in nearby grocery stores. Wife, friends, relatively good health.

But, beyond all these material things, I’m grateful for the realization that, despite Trump, Nazis and the Republican Party, we, even they, are all reflections of the one spirit, not just me and those who agree with me, but all humanity. Just as electricity works for everyone, so the power for good and compassion is available and will work for everyone. It can not be only me and those who think as I do that have this power. It is a force of nature, just like electricity and available to all. I am grateful that this is so and grateful that, in spite of appearances to the contrary, more and more of us are aware.

I am (we all are) the one mysterious power in Nature we call ‘God’. It is – the substance of all that is – we are one. All the attributes of God are mine and yours: radiant good health, fearlessness, kindness, compassion, joy, peace, forgiveness, strength, beauty, creativity, etc. In gratitude turn from all that seems to be against this power, center myself in it, and live from there.

Beyond

What would I understand and accomplish if I could get beyond myself – not be anchored by the temporal and spacial limitations of my ‘normal’ everyday mind and body? Would I be Spider Man, the Hulk, Black Lightening, Captain America, Wonder Woman, the Golem? Why are so many of our favorite myths and fantasies about transforming and transcending our limitations? 

Two reasons. First, we know it’s really possible. Second, the power to do that is inside every one of us. Not outside, but inside. Spirit can be limited by nothing and we are spiritual beings first and foremost. That’s why we’re attracted to the super heroes. They’re showing us the way, what we also might do if we accept our reality as spirit. The rabbi Jesus said, “Greater things than this shall you do also” and “know ye not ye are gods?”

There’s another side of going beyond – stillness – the peace that passeth understanding. How gracious that peace is! The calm oneness. No cares, worries, struggle and strife. How much to be desired. For me, right now, at this point in my life that peace is what I want most.

Urgency

An acute sense of time, a fear that something important is going to happen or be lost unless correct action is taken immediately. A profound sense of lack and desperate reliance on one’s self alone. The complete opposite of a sense of inner guidance and support, the calm certainty that there’s time enough and things will unfold for the best (of all concerned) if I can tune in and listen, then act on, my inner knowing. 

My ego loves urgency, is urgency. The adrenalin rush, stress and sense of danger and opportunity urgency brings are thrilling and too often addicting. However, the results are always better when I don’t take the sense of urgency at face value, but acknowledge it, breath deeply into it, give it over to my Self and follow its guidance.

Growth

Growth is allowing our souls – our connection to the thing we call ‘God’,  to break out of our shells. Our souls stretch and push until what contained them yesterday, what worked yesterday, no longer works. What we thought of as the world – our habits, values, beliefs – must be broken so that we can be born anew. 

This need not be painful, tho it usually is. It’s only painful because we don’t understand whats happening and resist it. Truth is we’re like the butterfly emerging from the cocoon. Be mindful of what’s going on. Go with it. Spread your wings and soar.

Swimming

At least the polls weren’t as wrong as 2016.

I’m sure the President and the Senate will ‘double down’ as they like to say. Will the new brakes hold? Partially, but there’s gonna be more strife. The races were so close! Hard to believe that Scott and Cruz will darken our days for six – count ’em – 6 more years! How can people be so fearful and blind?

I’m going to have faith that this is all unfolding as it should, for the best of all concerned. I’m going to double down on faith. Like swimming. I trust myself to the water. I don’t hold on to the water. I know the water will hold me up. If I try to hold on, I will sink and drown. Faith.
