Forgiveness is not accomplished by expecting the ego’s perception to overlook the guilt it sees in itself or anyone else. Forgiveness is asking for and accepting the evaluation of the God Self to replace the ego’s perception entirely. Depending on perception is our attempt to give truth to illusions and thus make illusions true. But it is only through our appeal to the God Self that we will find what is true. Remember as you choose, illusions and fear go together, as do truth and love. Every choice for the God Self makes love more real than fear, for everyone.
