The one thing that is absolutely required to maintain our belief in the reality of the world is that we have no control over it. To think that the injustice and suffering we find there are caused by our thoughts would be intolerable. We would immediately examine the sanity of those thoughts, for what sane person would continue to pursue his own destruction? Examine the reality of the thought of sin. Sin condemns. Do you think God has condemned Himself? And if He did not create sin, it is not real. Unless it serves a purpose in His Creation, in truth, it does not exist. Period. This is the only justification, and yet the absolute need, for forgiveness if we are to find the truth and accept the reality of our loving Self.
