“True Forgiveness” Book Review

by Colleen Fee

Colleen FeeAs I move down my path with ACIM and the Holy Spirit, I continue to be grateful for all of the beautiful direction I receive. This month (November, 2017) I celebrated one year of living in Ormond Beach and being in service to Pathways of Light with Mary and Robert. I am also blessed to be taking the ministerial training with Pathways’ courses. A few weeks ago I was working with Course 203, An Introduction To A Course In Miracles, that included a recording of a Gary Renard workshop. Much of the information Gary shared was about forgiveness and as I pondered it over the next day or so, I asked Holy Spirit for help with true forgiveness. I had a basic understanding of how The Course defines true forgiveness — to overlook what never happened and release all illusions — but I wanted to really understand it and again asked for Holy Spirit’s help.

Ask Holy Spirit and it is given… the next day! The very next day Pathways received a box of the book written by Rev. Jennifer McSween that would be available for purchase on their website and also as membership appreciation gifts. When I opened the box and saw the title of the book, I got goosebumps all over and had to laugh right out loud: “True Forgiveness.” I could hardly wait to finish unpacking the box so I could get my own copy to read.

At this time, I am on my third reading of this blessing-filled book. Jennifer has a wonderful personal story that gave her the purpose of writing a book to help others understand a transformative approach to TRUE forgiveness and the true happiness that is possible, no matter what we experience in our lives.

Her clear reflection and the use of 12 lessons helped me understand that I forgive myself because what I see in the world comes from me and is not real. It is not real because I am making up the dream that I am judging as painful or wrong. The forgiveness comes from remembering I am the dreamer. What I think I see or experience is the dream (illusion).

I remember the truth is that I am Love. I am safe. The Holy Spirit is always with me and will help me see differently with Christ’s vision. I have been using the five steps Jennifer gives that include ACIM lessons and help bring a clear understanding that forgiveness is my function from the perspective of Truth.

Forgiveness really is the key to happiness. Jennifer’s “Blueprint for Happiness” helps me see the ACIM lessons in a really beautiful way with another explanation of how to apply them in every circumstance and help me change my perception toward my happiness. I have not had a lot of praying experience in my life and Jennifer’s Forgiveness Prayer is just another beautiful gift from her book. 

I highly recommend this book and want to thank Rev. Jennifer McSween and the Holy Spirit for the way it found its way to me. I am amazed at the reflection of Love that comes through this wonderful little book about the huge topic of True Forgiveness. It is warm, engaging and very useful in this dream we call life.
