For most of us keeping to a practice of forgiveness while experiencing a world dedicated to attack and defense, is challenging to say the least. The polarities we find make keeping our focus difficult. But this actually happens because it is we who are still in conflict with the purpose we have given the world. We use the world now for punishing guilt, but we can change its purpose to one of forgiveness; to recognize it is only a dream we are imagining, but continue to believe is true. Now our practice and the purpose of the world are aligned. We no longer have any false expectations of what we want from the world, but can focus directly on what we are willing to bring to it.
