The Law of Forgiveness is the Great Freeing Power of Life! When we truly forgive a person, place, condition, or thing, we give forth something to take its place which is better in every way. It is impossible to forgive in the intellect. That is not where forgiveness either begins or ends.

All Forgiveness must take place in the feeling of the individual, the feeling body, which is a body of fine substance penetrating and enfolding the physical body. Many people say, “Well, I have forgiven but I have not forgotten.” Notice what has happened! The intellect has said one ought to forgive everything, but the feeling is still holding a quality of hurt or sense of injustice.

This is the danger point. Why? Because any such feeling held within the consciousness of the individual is qualifying the Life Energy flowing through the body today with the record of imperfection which happened yesterday or last week or last year or maybe many years ago. This is the thing which binds the whole human race to continued discord, and the people do not understand what is happening. There are only three things in the whole Universe that cause mankind’s discord and limitations. They are criticism, condemnation, and judgement.

Such feeling, held within the emotional body, accumulates every time the mind goes to the incident; and if the personality dwells often on events that cause such a feeling to generate in the first place, the quality begins to fill the whole body and atmosphere of the individual. Then it flows out into that one’s personal or business affairs. Soon the whole world of the individual becomes charged, as it were, with that quality which is predominant in the feeling – the same as when you put your battery on the charger in a garage. It becomes filled with that vibratory activity and quality.

This is the cause of all disease, failure, financial loss, and every kind of distress human beings on Earth experience. In other words, these feelings are generated within the individual by himself, because the personality could not have its own way, or thought it had been treated unjustly.

Such a feeling held within the emotional body of the individual cannot hurt anyone but the individual who generates it, unless others who contact that one’s radiation accept it into their activities. These feelings, held within the emotional body of the individual through the years, are what create continued distress, and provide the energy for both carnate and discarnate entities to live upon – who only torment their creators.

Now we come to the remedy for the condition. If the individual will call on the Law of Forgiveness for all the discord he has ever generated in all lives – past and present – then amplify his Call to include all mankind’s mistakes, he will find such relief from his own discord as he can scarcely believe possible at this time.

Why should we not call on the Law of Forgiveness for all mankind? Is there anyone in this world who has not made mistakes? Do you realize, Consciousness is one! Substance is one! Energy is one! And what affects one affects all, because all are constantly moving in the atmosphere of Earth where all these things act!

The individual who wishes to be released from distressing conditions can call to the “Beloved Mighty I AM Presence” and Great Host of Ascended Masters to forgive all human mistakes, and annihilate their cause and effect from mankind and the Earth forever. If the individual will do this, he releases all the accumulated feeling of discord which he has held within himself. When it is cleared out of his emotional body, his health returns, his world comes into Divine Order, his prosperity flows in, and once again he becomes harmonized enough to let the constant flow of Perfection from his own “Mighty I AM Presence” flood forth into him and his world – and that which was imperfection becomes Perfection.
