ACIM Lesson 198: Only my condemnation injures me.

To condemn another is to injure them. And in doing so I claim for all the world to hear that I, too, can be injured.


To make myself a prisoner! And for what?

Far better, then, to forgive.

Forgiveness is the answer to all my seeming problems.

And what is Ho’oponopono but a petition to the Divinity to forgive me for whatever it is in me that has contributed somehow to the chaos of the world or my ridiculous upset over the way you slurp your soup?

I do not want to harbour any unforgiving thoughts today and so I will clean as soon as I am tempted to do so:

I love you. I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you.

Once again I ask: Lead me not into temptation!

Illusions be gone.

“Only my condemnation injures me. I love you, I’m sorry, Forgive me, Thank you”.
