MIRACLES – The Golden Key Unity Way
The Miracle-Working Power of Love and Forgiveness
Questions: If you were to start off on a long hiking trip, would you put unnecessary, heavy things in your pack? Or, would you make your pack as light as possible? Your answer would probably be as light as possible so as to make it easier to move along the trail.
The same is true in life. Unfortunately, some people, either ignorantly or un-intentionally carry heavy burdens. The heaviest burdens are resentment, bitterness and unforgiveness.
These are big miracle-inhibiting things. When a person is filled with resentment, bitterness, or unforgiveness, it is very difficult for the healing, prospering, miracle-working power of God to flow through one’s consciousness. That power of God is love and it needs a clear, open channel for best expression.
A man worked long and hard to be successful and prosperous in life, but met with frustration and disappointment until he realized that he was full of resentment toward people who had irritated him, or crossed him. Through his study of Unity he learned the power of Love and Forgiveness, and set about forgiving everything and everyone. He forgave himself for having engaged in such destructive emotions.
It was like a miracle! Everything began to go better as he continued forgiving and incorporating love into his thinking and feeling nature. His health improved and his prosperity expanded, too.
Some people refuse to forgive not realizing how harmful that is to themselves. They wrongly believe that it is okay to hate and resent someone for something that may have happened many years earlier. While the “offender” may have completely forgotten the incident, the offended one may continue to hate and resent it for years. When that happens, the result is often ill-health, financial lack, and difficulty in human relationships.
The Golden Key is to forgive quickly and completely. Do not allow anything to take the place of your peace of mind. It doesn’t mean to approve of an offense, but it does mean to not allow it to fester in your mind and body. Sometimes, someone will experience an illness, and not be aware of what caused it. Resentment is often the culprit. The way of healing and peace of mind is through love. When you realize the miracle-working power is love, you will forgive quickly and send love to the offender. If you entertained even a moment of anger, forgive and love yourself.
When you allow Divine Love to flow naturally, you have one miracle after another!
“When we get in touch with love, we create miracles. We have to see things differently to get in touch with love. The miracle allows us to see differently, seeing the gift, seeing the message, seeing the blessing in what felt like a curse. When our perception changes, we extend the miracle and love love. That’s what miracles are made of!” – Barbara Stanny
“Forgiveness is a process of giving up the false for the true; erasing sin and error from the mind and body.” – Charles Fillmore
