“When you forgive your brother in the flesh, you merely create the capacity in your own soul for the reception of the reality of God’s forgiveness of your own misdeeds.” [UB 170:2:23]
Thought Adjuster: “As you can gather from the above statement made by Jesus to his apostles, forgiveness is two-tiered. It becomes easier to understand if you look at it from the perspective of your soul's fabric.
What weighs on your soul? (1) The guilt, shame, and regrets that ride on the coattail of your misdeeds; (2) the resentment you entertain toward those you find guilty of wronging you. Your cleverness at justifying harboring such low-grade vibrations won’t fix such emotional symptoms.
God is all-loving, which means he exclusively operates on the premium energy of love-in-action. Because he created you as evolutionary beings, he does not hold your ignorance and immaturity against you. He loves you as you are, providing stellar soul education and rehabilitation.
You are, indeed, forgiven in advance. It is a given since the Father does not take your offenses personally. His heart is not conflicted—ever. How could it be? He is all-wise and all-knowing. He stages manifold divine interventions to help them his immature offspring grasp how much they are a danger to their soul development.
Confront the hostile emotions you entertain toward others, as their toxic and unbecoming emanations stink to high heaven, holding you back. Gratefully accept the ever-extended divine forgiveness after consciously soliciting it, and it will lift the dead weight that plagued you—a significant step toward the spring-cleaning of your soul.
Be mindful that forgiveness is a dual process that has to be completed to sever all your toxic attachments to low-vibrational emotions, setting you free to soar toward your magnificent godlikeness.”
