66. Forgiveness

My Lord's Name is Forgiveness. My name is hope.

To forgive the outer world I need peace. To forgive the inner world I need perfection.

Forgiveness is the seeker's immeasurable accomplishment in both the world of self-giving and the world of God-becoming.

Forgiveness is man's happiness-house. Forgiveness is God's Oneness-Home.

If you are deplorably weak, then you will sleeplessly remember, strongly harbour and ceaselessly suffer. If you are soulfully brave, then you will immediately forgive, completely forget and unimaginably prosper.

Forget the injustice-world. Forgiveness-joy will be all yours.

Cry for the world. Look, forgiveness-light is within your easy reach. Smile at the world. Look, forgiveness-delight is preceding you and following you.

Forgive the world. The world will sit at your compassion-feet. Forgive yourself. God will be dancing inside your meditation-heart.
