Venue: Convo Table 05
Type of Experience: Conversation
Content Type: Forgiveness is the key to happiness.
Forgiveness is an essential part of the Christian message. It is the subject of the book “A Course in Miracles”. I have been practicing the teaching of forgiveness as taught in “A Course in Miracles” for 14 years. The Course as it is sometimes called, is primarily a teaching on forgiveness; i.e. learning to forgive yourself by forgiving others. According to the Course, giving and receiving are the same. When you release someone else by forgiving them, you release yourself. Choosing not to forgive is choosing to remain in hell, while choosing to forgive is a choice for heaven. This teaching has radically changed my life. I am happier and more at peace than I have ever been. Through forgiveness we are able to let go of the past and live in the present in love and joy without guilt or fear. This discussion will focus on the power of forgiveness as the key to peace and happiness. We will examine the nature of what is and what is not forgiveness according to the Course’s philosophy. This session will offer a chance for discussion, sharing of victories and/or struggles as they relate to forgiveness, and the practice of a mental exercise of forgiveness from the workbook section of Course in Miracles.
