Our mind, as we now experience it, is divided between ego perception and God Self knowing. Perception’s belief is that sin is real and results in the experience of separation and conflict. Knowing sees all of life connected, resulting in peace and harmony. Knowledge is there permanently because the Mind was founded in truth by the Creator of truth for the purpose of preserving and extending what is true. Perception is there because we have tried to make a different “truth.” It is not permanent and must be continuously chosen to maintain its presence. Judgment of what is “wrong” exercises the choice for perception. Forgiveness makes no judgment and frees the mind to see from its natural, peaceful state. Which we choose determines the future of the world we see.
