LESSON 62. Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.
W-62.1. It is your forgiveness that will bring the world of darkness to the light. 2 It is your forgiveness that lets you recognize the light in which you see. 3 Forgiveness is the demonstration that you are the light of the world. 4 Through your forgiveness does the truth about yourself return to your memory. 5 Therefore, in your forgiveness lies your salvation.
W-62.2. Illusions about yourself and the world are one. 2 That is why all forgiveness is a gift to yourself. 3 Your goal is to find out who you are, having denied your Identity by attacking creation and its Creator. 4 Now you are learning how to remember the truth. 5 For this attack must be replaced by forgiveness, so that thoughts of life may replace thoughts of death.
W-62.3. Remember that in every attack you call upon your own weakness, while each time you forgive you call upon the strength of Christ in you. 2 Do you not then begin to understand what forgiveness will do for you? 3 It will remove all sense of weakness, strain and fatigue from your mind. 4 It will take away all fear and guilt and pain. 5 It will restore the invulnerability and power God gave His Son to your awareness.
W-62.4. Let us be glad to begin and end this day by practicing today's idea, and to use it as frequently as possible throughout the day. 2 It will help to make the day as happy for you as God wants you to be. 3 And it will help those around you, as well as those who seem to be far away in space and time, to share this happiness with you.
W-62.5. As often as you can, closing your eyes if possible, say to yourself today:
2 Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world. 3 I would fulfill my function that I may be happy.
4 Then devote a minute or two to considering your function and the happiness and release it will bring you. 5 Let related thoughts come freely, for your heart will recognize these words, and in your mind is the awareness they are true. 6 Should your attention wander, repeat the idea and add:
7 I would remember this because I want to be happy.
