"Forgive, and you will be forgiven." (Luke 6:37) (2 min 8 sec)


    1. "Forgive, and you will be forgiven" is a powerful expression of the central role of forgiveness in spiritual awakening.

    Forgiveness is not about condoning hurtful behavior or forgetting past wrongs. Rather, it is a process of releasing our own judgments, grievances, and perceptions of separation, and recognizing the truth of our shared innocence.
    Whenever we hold a grievance against another person, we areĀ  imprisoning ourselves in a state of guilt, fear, and separation. By refusing to forgive, we are choosing to suffer and to block the awareness of God's love within us.
    However, when we choose to forgive, we are releasing ourselves from this self-imposed prison. We are letting go of the ego's perceptions and aligning our minds with the Holy Spirit's vision of love. As we forgive others, we are also forgiving ourselves, because we recognize that we are all one in God.
    Jesus' promise that "you will be forgiven" is not a reward for good behavior or a bargain with God. Rather, it is a statement of the power of forgiveness to heal our minds and restore our awareness of God's love. As we extend forgiveness to others, we open ourselves to receive the same love from God.
    Forgiveness is an ongoing practice and a way of life. It is a choice we make in each moment to let go of the ego's judgments and to align ourselves with the Holy Spirit's perception of love.
    Jesus' words are a reminder that forgiveness is the key to spiritual awakening. By choosing to forgive, we release ourselves from the cycle of suffering and we open our hearts to the experience of God's boundless grace. We recognize our shared innocence with all beings and we become channels for the healing power of forgiveness in the world.
    I am sorry.
    Please forgive me.
    Thank you.
    I love you.
