I trust my brothers, who are one with me….
I was just reading what came up for me when I did this lesson last year. I could easily flash on the so-called experiences of that story of past. And you know, it was surrounded in the light of forgiveness. What I recall, is the way I changed my focus and the transformation of my brothers and myself into sinless beings, all doing our part. That’s a yummy miracle. The thing is, most of what I look on today shines in that same light of forgiveness and sinless freedom. So much of what I call my life has taken this lamp from which I see. But there are moments. There are those moments when the temptation to feel unjustly treated, or to see another or myself as ‘wrong’ in some silly way, catches me off guard.
I am filled with only gratitude for the practice, lessons such as these provide; always returning, re-tuning me, re-minding me to instantly re-member to shift focus back to sinlessness. I look around me and I see only the reason why my seeing your innocence is all I want... You are my Self. I cannot see anything about myself beyond my assessment of you. Has anything but the letting go of judgment ever satisfied? No. And truly, could any of the trumped up charges and defenses the ego satisfies itself with even remotely come close to the feeling of peace and timeless surety replaces it. Forgiveness offers everything I want.
Today, I want only to trust you, my brother, who are one with me…
I pledge my full devotion to experiencing only our sinlessness. Let ours be one will, to experience only the innocence inherent to God’s Son, in everyone and everything. We are Christ after all. We are as God created us. And we are free.
