The purpose of forgiveness is to free our mind to remember Heaven. Heaven is not a place. It is a state of mind. It is the awareness of perfect Oneness. It is easy to see how the judgments we make of ourselves and each other, turns the mind away from Oneness. What is not so apparent is that in judging and turning away we have adopted another state of mind and made a world to take the place of Heaven. Choose now to forgive a story that was never true. Choose now to love him who holds you hostage to hate and free your path to Heaven.
