Judgment proclaims that guilt is valued more than love. Forgiveness is a gift acknowledging there is no guilt. You choose which will rule your life by what you offer others. Forgiveness is the practice of letting the Holy Spirit re-evaluate our judgments made from guilt. The peace this brings to our mind is what “purifies” our thoughts, shifting our intention for them to be more in alignment with the nature of our one, whole, completely loving Self.
