Forgiveness is not real UNLESS it brings a healing to your brother AND yourself. YOU must attest his sins had no effect on YOU, to demonstrate they were not real. How else COULD he be guiltless? And how COULD his innocence be justified UNLESS his sins have no effect to WARRANT guilt? Sins are beyond forgiveness just BECAUSE they would entail effects which CANNOT be undone and overlooked entirely. In their UNDOING lies the proof that they were merely errors. LET yourself be healed, that you may be forgiving, offering salvation to your brother AND yourself. A broken body shows the mind has NOT been healed. A miracle of healing proves that separation is WITHOUT effect.

Now is the temple of the living God rebuilt as host again to Him by Whom it was created. Where He dwells His Son dwells with Him, NEVER separate. And They give thanks that They are welcome made at last. Where stood a cross stands now the risen Christ, and ancient scars are healed within His sight. An ancient miracle has come to bless, and to REPLACE an ancient enmity that came to kill. In gentle gratitude do God the Father AND the Son return to what is Theirs, and will forever be. Now is the Holy Spirit’s purpose done. For They have come! For They have come at last!
Chapter 26: The Transition, excerpt, Urtext Manuscripts A Course in Miracles
Today a new chapter is available of the reading of A Course in Miracles, Urtext Manuscripts. You can listen to it here on YouTube, Spreaker, Spotify and more.
Starting off with this quote from “Psychotherapy” Volume V of the Urtext Manuscripts.
Everyone who needs help, regardless of the form of his distress, is attacking himself, and his peace of mind is suffering in consequence. These tendencies are often described as ʺselfdestructive, ʺ and the patient often regards them in that way himself. What he does not realize and needs to learn is that this ʺself,ʺ which can attack and be attacked as well, is a concept he made up. Further, he cherishes it, defends it, and is sometimes even willing to ʺsacrificeʺ his ʺlifeʺ on its behalf. For he regards it as himself. This self he sees as being acted on, reacting to external forces as they demand, and helpless in the power of the world.
Urtext Manuscripts A Course in Miracles V5, P2A3
This is quite the realization, whatever appears to happen in my life: I am doing it to my self. It does not seem to be something you accept right away. But the possibility for a great revelation is inherent in allowing this new idea to be accepted.
The concept of of my self as I have defined it will never become what I wanted it to be. I can “imagine” my dream of “success” till the cows come home, but it will not change as long as I hold on to this self image.
In our spiritual healing class today we will look at all this. At a very practical level.
How am I “self-destructive” ?
Do I realize I am attacking myself? And did I actually start a war against my self?
In chapter 23 of the Urtext Manuscripts a whole chapter is dedicated to discovering the “war against yourself” and of course steps to the undoing of it in the resolution of the dream and salvation from fear.
