There are three main workbook lessons that make up ‘Complete Forgiveness’ Complete forgiveness is where you make a choice based on your emotional state of mind. The first ingredient for Complete Forgiveness is from Lesson 5 in the workbook.
Lesson 5 – I Am Never Upset For The Reason I Think.
What this lesson is telling you Metaphysically is that every time you get upset you rationalize that upset. And if you go deeper into the metaphysics of rationalisation, you realize that every negative emotion you rationalise you keep. And every positive emotion you rationalise you lose. This means that the ego gets to suck all your energy from you and you may think you are having a grand old time of it.
If you rationalize your good emotions you are creating the hell that will follow. Then when you get angry, anxious, fearful, or guilty you always believe the story you tell yourself. As the above lesson states…. we are upset, but we are never upset for the reason we think. In Metaphysics this is called a Rationalization…
Notice the word ‘never’ in that lesson, he does not say sometimes, or every now and again, he says ‘Never’ this means that we rationalise all the time, without fail… So, what is the truest answer to all our emotional experiences? There are many that we all experience. Lesson 107 will show us the way forward.
Remember, also there is no hierarchy of illusions, so when you use Level 2 thoughts and Ideas they cover every illness, every sickness, and every emotional state of mind that there is regardless of how big or how small the problem is.
Lesson 107 – “Truth will correct the errors in my mind”.
“What can correct illusions but the truth?” And what are errors but illusions that remain unrecognized for what they are? Where truth has entered errors disappear. They merely vanish, leaving not a trace by which to be remembered. They are gone because without belief they have no life and so they disappear to nothingness, returning whence they came. From dust to dust they come and go, for only truth remains.
Can you imagine a state of mind without illusions? How it would feel? Try to remember when there was a time – perhaps a minute, maybe even less – when nothing came to interrupt your peace; when you were certain you were loved and safe. Then try to picture what it would be like to have that moment be extended to the end of time and to eternity.
Then let the sense of quiet that you felt be multiplied a hundred times and then be multiplied another hundred more. And now you have a hint, not more than just the faintest intimation of the state your mind will rest in when the truth has come.
“Without illusions there could be no fear, no doubt and no attack. When truth has come all pain is over, for there is no room for transitory thoughts and dead ideas to linger in your mind”
There you have it: there is no illusion, no pain that cannot be corrected by truth on Level 2. However, there is one more workbook lesson required to give us the full picture of Complete forgiveness. And, the last piece of the puzzle is found in Lesson 190, as follows…
Lesson 190 – “I choose the joy of God instead of pain”
This is paragraph 5, in lesson 190…
“It is your thoughts alone that cause you pain. Nothing external to your mind can hurt or injure you in any way. There is no cause beyond yourself that can reach down and bring oppression”. “No-one but yourself affects you.”
“There is nothing in the world which has the power to make you ill or sad, or weak or frail. But it is you who have the power to dominate all things you see by merely recognizing what you are.”
You can see now very clearly that all pain that you have ever experienced has not come from another person, or the world, or indeed anything external to you. All pain is and always has been inside you.
This also means that it is impossible that you could have ever hurt anyone, or anyone could have hurt you. This is a fact, but people do not want to admit this, because it is much easier and nicer for us to project our pain onto someone else, and this is where we truly create our own hell.
The freedom in this lesson is unbelievable for you, if you can get your head around these thoughts and ideas from Level 2. This means that you are not responsible for hurting anyone, and vice versa, from anytime in your past!
So now let’s bring all three of these lessons from level 2 together, and now and we should have Complete Forgiveness.
THE METAPHYSICS OF – COMPLETE FORGIVENESS –
“I am never upset for the reason I think”. “Truth will correct all errors in my mind”. “I choose the joy of God instead of pain”.
There you have it…. when you are in pain, any pain, you have a choice! You can bring it to the truth on Level 2, and let it be healed permanently. Or, you can rationalise it on Level 1, and keep it permanently. The thing is when you choose to rationalise anything, you choose the ego and Level 1, remember this the next time you are feeling less than………. “You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequences of your choice”!
