Forgiveness

"To change the world we must change the thoughts, the beliefs that have made it. And to change the beliefs, we must change the image we have of ourselves - the source of all we think is true. Guilt and separation are the components of our belief now and the purpose of this world is to support that belief. Forgiveness is the practice of examining and discarding the judgments that support and reinforce these beliefs. This frees the mind to accept the Presence of the God Self, our "real" Self and a Vision of a more real world to learn and practice thoughts of Oneness." [Tom Carpenter, The Miracle of Real Forgiveness]

"For as we forgive, we are forgiven; as we condemn others, we are ourselves condemned. Thus in patience condemn not, neither find fault; not condoning, not agreeing, but let thine own life so shine that others, seeing thy patience, knowing thy understanding, comprehending thy peace, may take hope." Cayce (3459-1)

"Never betray the earth. Even in your highest glory, don't forget the earth; it is your mother. And don't forget the people. They may have been hindrances, they may have been enemies to you; they may have tried in every way to destroy you; they may have already crucified you, stoned you to death, or poisoned you - but don't forget them. Whatever they have done, they have done in an unconscious state. And if you cannot forgive them, who is going to forgive them? And your forgiving them is going to enrich you immeasurably." Zarathustra

"Know in self that the greater part is ever within self when trouble arises between self and daughter, between self and neighbor, between self and husband. For that we think, that we give voice to in condemnation of others, we will find within our own selves. For the Lord thy God is one. And where ye condemn, so are you condemned. As ye forgive, so are ye forgiven." Cayce (3457-1)

. . "Except ye become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter in." Unless you can be just as forgiving, unless you can find it just as easy to forget slights and slurs and things that would make afraid those who would judge others. For with what measure ye mete, it is measured to thee again. Even as He, the Master gave, the faults ye find in others are reflected in thine own mirror of life. And as He gave, "Cast the beam out of thine eye that ye may see to take the mote from thy brother's eye." Cayce (3395-2)

"When individuals hold a grudge they are fighting the God within themselves against the God within the individual or soul for whom or towards whom such is held." Cayce (1304-01)

"Who gains by being forgiven and by forgiving? The one that forgives is lord even of him that he forgives." Cayce (585-2)

"Hold rather to those things in which, in thy dealings with thy fellowman, ye may see only the pure, the good! For until ye are able to see within the life and activities of those ye have come to hate the most, something ye would worship in thy Creator, ye haven't begun to think straight." Cayce (1776-1)

"For only as ye forgive those who have blamed thee without a cause, who have spoken vilely of thee without reason, can the giver of life and light forgive thee - even though He came into experience that ye, even ye, might know thy place with God, with thy Maker." Cayce (3660-1)

"Then how forgiving art thou? Answer this, and ye will know just how ye have been forgiven. It is the law, it is the Lord, it is love." Cayce (3376-1)

"Then what are you grumbling about because you dislike your mother? She dislikes you as much, but change this into love. Be kind, be gentle, be patient, be longsuffering, for if thy God was not longsuffering with thee, what chance would you have?" Cayce (5081-1)

"Once Buddha said to one of his disciples who was asking, "Bhagwan, you always say forgive, but how many times?"...

In fact, to ask that question is enough proof that the disciple has not understood. It is not a question of how many times: forgiveness simply means you accept the person as he is, you still love him the way he is. Forgiveness means that you don't judge him, that you are non-judgmental. But ordinarily we think forgiveness means you know that he has done wrong, still you forgive him. First you judge and then you forgive. Your forgiveness is false. Real forgiveness has no judgment. It never says, "No, you have done wrong, but still I forgive you." It simply accepts the person as he is. There is no grudge, no complaint, no grumbling. There is no question really of forgiving because there is no anger in the first place. (underline added)

But the man asked, "How many times?" Buddha said to him, "At least seven times." The man said, "Okay."

The way he said okay, Buddha said, "Wait - seventy-seven times, or better still, seven hundred and seventy-seven times." But even seven hundred and seventy-seven times will be exhausted - then what about seven hundred and seventy-eight? Then he will take revenge and with a vengeance, because all those seven hundred and seventy-seven times have to be taken care of; he has to take revenge for all those too. He was somehow tolerating - somehow It was not out of understanding.

If you feign, if you pretend, you become pseudo. A man who has a pseudo personality loses all intelligence, and that is the greatest loss in the world." Osho

Allowing is forgiveness in the moment as in allowing yourself, things and people to be who and what they are. Forgiveness is of something in the past.
