Forgive Us All

Anger is never justified in any form.
All things work together for Good.
Forgiveness is the key to happiness.
In my defenselessness, my safety lies.
All forgiveness is a gift to yourself.
All the world is blessed with peace through me.
All from A Course in Miracles

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.
Do unto to others as you would have them do unto you.
Love your brothers as your Father in Heaven loves you.
Forgive us our debts as we have forgiven our debtors.
And leave us not in temptation but deliver us from error.
From the Bible and the Lord's Prayer. (With some spirit guided translation.)

I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent Him Who sent me
I do not have to worry about what to say or do
Because He Who sent me will direct me.
I am content to be where He wishes
Knowing He goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal.
Healer's Prayer from ACIM

We are here to help and heal one another.
We are here to share the Love that sent us.
We don't have to worry about what to do
Because Love will always direct us from within.
We are happy to be wherever Love wishes
Knowing that Love is always present and prevailing.
We are healed and remember our Holiness
As we let Love teach us to see only healing and Holiness.
Betty Lue's translation of the ACIM prayer above.

There is only Love and the call for Love.
There is only Abundance and the cry for experiencing Abundance.
Are we not responsible for teaching others how to be healthy, happy and loving.
Are we not able to give what we have to sustain others trust in our Goodness,
so they will be receptive to learn from what we have learned.

Is there a limit to what God can give?
Is there a need to kill our enemies?
Is there a need to avoid what Jesus, Martin Luther King and Ghandi and other great ones have asked?
Is there a time when we need to lay down our past, forgive ourselves and give our best?

Yes, we are afraid. We have been carefully and consistently taught.
Is this not an assault on against spiritual law?
Are we not doing exactly what our terrified brothers are doing?
Are they not scared of being killed and controlled, raped and plundered of their ways?
Are they not foolishly distorting their spiritual teachings for their own ends?

Islam "None of you is a believer until he desires for his brother what he desires for himself."
Christianity "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
Buddhism "Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find harmful."
Baha'i "Blessed is he who preferreth his brother before himself."
Judaism "What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellowman."
That is the entire Law, all the rest is commentary."
Hinduism "Do not to another what is disagreeable to yourself."
North American Indian "In the beginning were the instructions.
They are to love and respect all living creatures and Mother Earth."

Choose what is loving and you will find great and lasting Peace within.

You are my spiritual partners as we conspire to co-create a better world.
My heart smiles and my spirit rejoices.
Your gifts of love and appreciation inspires me and feed my soul.
Celebrate the gifts we share and grow in abundance and beauty.
Offering all I am given in Love, supports, strengthens and affirms this Love.

I love you, as you live the life you consciously desire .
I am supported and sustained by your kindness and generosity.
May you honor your Holy Self as you walk in Goodness, Beauty and Love.
