Today’s harvest:

“… You must practice forgiveness on the level where your experience is. Yes, you have to understand the metaphysics of the Course in order to understand what you’re doing. But your forgiveness is done here, which means you should be practical – and respectful of other people and their experience. In other words, when you’re living your everyday life, be kind. Your job isn’t to correct others. Just help the Holy Spirit clean up your wrong mind by switching to your right mind, and then leave the rest to him.” [page 166,167]

“The Course is addressed to the part of your mind that needs to choose between the ego and the Holy Spirit.” [page 167]

“If it’s not real, then it’s not something to fear. But it is something to forgive.” [page 167]

“… when it comes to the illusion of time, you should understand that sin equals the past, guilt equals the present, and fear equals the future.” [page 168]

“You should also recognize that fear, sin, rage, guilt, jealousy, anger, pain, worry, resentment, revenge, loathing, envy and all other negative emotions are versions of the same illusion. That’s why the Course taught very clearly, before all the borrowers came along, that

Fear and love are the only emotions of which you are capable.
