"Go and sin no more." John 8:11 (1 min 55 sec)

Preview

    1. Distinguishing sin, retribution, and punishment.

    "Sin" doesn't mean acts of wrongdoing against God. It is the ego's belief in separation which leads to fear, judgment, lack, and suffering. Sin is us "missing the mark" of our true loving nature.
    The concept of punishment for our "sins is a false belief. We naturally experience the consequences of our own thoughts and actions but it's not God punishing us.
    Instead of viewing consequences as punishment, see them as opportunities for correction and learning. Experiencing the pain from ego-driven choices prompts us to recognize their negative impact and make better choices.

    2. Transcending punishment.

    Punishment isn't an attribute of God or love. God is pure love and forgiveness, and cannot punish his Creations. "Going and sinning no more" is not about punishment; it's an invitation to embrace love and forgiveness over the ego's limited perception.

    3. Learning from missed marks.

    The past is gone, and focusing on "sins" already committed only perpetuates the ego's narrative of guilt and separation. Instead, "go and sin no more" is about us learning from our past mistakes and choosing a different path moving forward. It's about recognizing the ego's influence and making a conscious choice toward love and forgiveness.

    4. Continuous practice, not perfection.

    This isn't about becoming sinless or perfect. We'll still "miss the mark" at times due to the ego's pull. However, by practicing forgiveness and choosing love again and again, we gradually loosen the ego's grip.
