A Course In Miracles Workbook Lesson #342 - I let forgiveness rest upon all things, for this forgiveness will be given me.


 Lesson #342

I let forgiveness rest upon all things, for this forgiveness will be given me.


Forgiveness is being willing to give up making other people and circumstances responsible for our unhappiness. When we take this position in managing the people and circumstances in our life we become the agent of our own experience and peace arises.


In Alcoholic Anonymous it is suggested in step three that we turn our will and lives over to the care of God as we understand God. This turning over is what the Course means by forgiveness. We are out of the blame game and are liberated from the victim role.


In Unitarian Universalism we covenant together to affirm and promote the free and responsible search for truth and meaning and in this search we come to realize that playing the victim and blaming others is not the path to holiness but binds us to fear, guilt, anger, resentment and grief.


Today, it is suggested in lesson #342 that we turn our willfulness over and let forgiveness rest on all things because when we do so, we are released as forgiveness is given to us.
