If I am maintaining roles in my life then I see the specialness where it is—with my own self-concept and it’s protection. I freely expose when expectations and reciprocity contract my experience and limit connection. I welcome transparency as a natural relaxed state for a mind that accepts there is no division. I am unable to contend with incongruity. Defensiveness guards me from peace of mind.

“Forgiveness offers everything I want.” For true safety I choose to accept the atonement! Innocence is for all or none. READ more from A Course in Miracles

“What could you want forgiveness cannot give?
Do you want peace? Forgiveness offers it.
Do you want happiness, a quiet mind, a certainty of purpose,
and a sense of worth and beauty that transcends the world?
Do you want care and safety, and the warmth of sure protection always?
Do you want a quietness that cannot be disturbed,
a gentleness that never can be hurt,
a deep, abiding comfort, and a rest so perfect it can never be upset?

All this forgiveness offers you, and more.
It sparkles on your eyes as you awake,
and gives you joy with which to meet the day.
It soothes your forehead while you sleep,
and rests upon your eyelids so you see no dreams of fear and evil, malice and attack.
And when you wake again, it offers you another day of happiness and peace.
All this forgiveness offers you, and more.

Forgiveness lets the veil be lifted up that hides the face of Christ
from those who look with unforgiving eyes upon the world.” (W-pI.122)

Watch this epic demonstration of what it means to be invulnerable. The power and strength of defenselessness is disarming.

Here in this beautiful clip from The Young Messiah we see Jesus meeting a traumatized centurion who had been involved in the massacre of the innocents. So many times in maintaining this idea of who we are in relation to another (our self-concept) do we loose the opportunity to meet ourselves as one in Christ. We all have a desire to join beyond shame, in a space relieved of guilt and blame in order to transcend regret. Beyond victims and victimizers, the PTSD of war and the shell shock of daily interpersonal dramas we all have a desire to connect in the present moment with a clean slate.

No matter what side of a perceived crime or injustice you consider yourself to be—this veterans day choose forgiveness—an undefended, blameless state of mind, that desires Peace as it’s one goal.
