Quite a while ago I stopped writing this and my other blogs. There were many reasons. I was moving and had to pack thousands of books and tapes (I’m a bookoholic) in boxes and take to storage and then I just procrastinated.

However, I had stopped writing this blog a while earlier.

I had started going through “A Course in Miracles” workbook day by day. I had reached day 134 and got to a part that made no sense to me at all.

The challenge was that forgiveness was to be achieved by considering all the evil things that you imagine the person you wish to forgive had done, and each time ask yourself, “Would I condemn myself for doing this?” This made absolutely no sense to me at all. I would condemn many things in myself that I would not condemn in others. The reason I forgive is that I don’t believe we have free wills as such.

It’s but for the grace of God there go I. That’s to say if I were someone else with that person’s genes and environment I would act the same way as the other did but I’m not the other, I have my genes and my past, so what is OK for someone else may not be OK for me.

God knows I have enough problems (sins, mistakes) of my own but they are mine and I would not condemn myself for my sins as I do not condemn you for yours.

However, I’ll continue from tomorrow with one workbook day at a time…
