Forgiveness is the cash you need.
All the other kinds of silver buy
Just strange things….
–Hafiz, as translated by Daniel Ladinsky
from Ask Not the Sparrow:
Don’t practice “forgiveness” of who or what you think is “out there,” separate from you! For what? None of this, none of your thoughts, is so. You are just “forgiving” your own thought about someone or something in your own mind! You are releasing your ideas about it, one at a time. Why do that? Strike the whole set! (None of my thoughts are true!) Give it all away! (If I release all my thoughts right now, I’ll experience the complete alternative!) Every moment, release every thought and give it away. Accept the eternal truth about you instead. That is what the transformational training will bring you to, when your mind is ready to receive it. The little willingness!
Then you’ll be happy. Then you’ll be “home.” Then you’ll be “gone” from pain and suffering. Then you’ll be who you are. That’s what resurrection is! It’s not mystical, it’s not “magical.” It’s here! It’s now!
When you experience it, you know.
Miracles are natural signs of forgiveness. Through miracles you accept God’s forgiveness by extending it to others.
