How To Look On The World

Jesus told us in “The Lord’s Prayer” that we need to ask God to forgive US our trespasses as we forgive our trespassers.  But what does this actually mean.

How do we forgive our trespassers?   Look, Listen and DO Not Judge – leave judgment to the Holy Spirit.  This is the ONLY way and is done by looking at the world through the perspective of Genesis 1, Non-Dualistic or Christ’s Vision.

As ACIM Chapter 9 “The Acceptance of the Atonement“, Section IV “The Holy Spirit’s Plan of Forgiveness” explains,  we read the following:

“You have a part to play in the Atonement, but the plan of the Atonement is beyond you.  You do not understand how to overlook errors, or you would not make them.  It would merely be further error to believe either that you do not make them, or that you can correct them without a Guide to correction.  And if you do not follow this Guide, your errors will not be corrected.  The plan is not yours because of your limited ideas about what you are.  This sense of limitation is where all errors arise.  The way to undo them, therefore, is not of you but for you………
[and continues]

“The ego’s plan is to have you see error clearly first, and then overlook it.  Yet how can you overlook what you have made real?  By seeing it clearly, you have made it real and cannot overlook it.  This is where the ego is forced to appeal to “mysteries,” insisting that you must accept the meaningless to save yourself.  Many have tried to do this in my name, forgetting that my words make perfect sense because they come from God.  They are as sensible now as they ever were, because they speak of ideas that are eternal.

Forgiveness that is learned of me does not use fear to undo fear.  Nor does it make real the unreal and then destroy it.  Forgiveness through the Holy Spirit lies simply in looking beyond error from the beginning, and thus keeping it unreal for you.  Do not let any belief in its realness enter your mind, or you will also believe that you must undo what you have made in order to be forgiven.  What has no effect does not exist, and to the Holy Spirit the effects of error are nonexistent.  By steadily and consistently cancelling out all its effects, everywhere and in all respects, He teaches that the ego does not exist and proves it.

Follow the Holy Spirit’s teaching in forgiveness, then, because forgiveness is His function and He knows how to fulfill it perfectly.  That is what I meant when I said that miracles are natural, and when they do not occur something has gone wrong.  Miracles are merely the sign of your willingness to follow the Holy Spirit’s plan of salvation, recognizing that you do not understand what it is.  His work is not your function, and unless you accept this you cannot learn what your function is”
