Claiming Love’s Blessings

What could you want forgiveness cannot give? ²Do you want peace? ³Forgiveness offers it. ⁴Do you want happiness, a quiet mind, a certainty of purpose, and a sense of worth and beauty that transcends the world? ⁵Do you want care and safety, and the warmth of sure protection always? ⁶Do you want a quietness that cannot be disturbed, a gentleness that never can be hurt, a deep abiding comfort, and a rest so perfect it can never be upset?

All this forgiveness offers you, and more. ²It sparkles on your eyes as you awake, and gives you joy with which to meet the day. ³It soothes your forehead while you sleep, and rests upon your eyelids so you see no dreams of fear and evil, malice and attack. ⁴And when you wake again, it offers you another day of happiness and peace. ⁵All this forgiveness offers you, and more. (A Course in Miracles, W-122.1–2. See also ACIM Lesson 122 Insights.)

Forgiveness is a blessing we give ourselves. Sometimes it seems that we are forgiving another, but if it is true forgiveness, we are really forgiving ourselves for beliefs we have held that lead us to judge another.

Only our judgments keep us unaware of all the blessings that are ours now. Sometimes we judge ourselves and feel guilty. More often, it seems, we judge others and we feel upset. But all judgments have the same source — the mistaken belief that we have succeeded in denying Love and separating from our Creator.

Today we choose to welcome Love’s blessing. We bring all of our judgments and our fears to the Holy Spirit with willingness to accept His help. He will help us to see that only Love is real. He will help us know that anything that seems to disturb our peace has no basis in reality. With this practice, we will reclaim the blessings Love always offers.
