Periodically I must remind myself there is never more than a single issue for me to face: Is sin real? It is from this belief that all my misperceptions arise. When I know, when I really believe sin is not real, my sense of separateness, every appearance that there is a lack of love, my pain and suffering and all the rest of my dreaming will be finished. Then too I must also remember why forgiveness is the most powerful of all our illusions. It is the one that will end the others for all time.
