It is an unbreakable mental law that you must forgive others if you want to demonstrate over your difficulties and to make any real spiritual progress.
At first, the vital importance of forgiveness may not be obvious, but be assured that it is not by chance that every great spiritual teacher, beginning with Jesus Christ, has insisted so strongly on forgiveness as a vital part of spiritual growth and freedom.
If you have been offended by anyone, it is imperative that you forgive them and to not take a lot of time in doing so. You are wise to not allow any seeming hurt to fester. By cleansing all anger and resentment from your heart this frees you to experience the highest degree of Positive Living. You do this, not for the sake of the offender, but for your own well-being.
Resentment, condemnation, anger, and a desire to punish another, affect your soul in a disastrously negative way. You simply cannot afford these. To harbor these attitudes robs you of peace of mind, health of body, harmony in relationships and abundance in your financial affairs. Plus, there may very well be other undesirable consequences.
Forgiveness is love. It is real miracle-working energy. If there is a need to forgive, begin doing so now and the results will be most pleasant. – Lovingly, Rev. John (Adapted from Around the Year with Emmet Fox)

The Healing Word
Spiritual healing is not an attempt to gain favor with God or to abrogate the divine or natural law. Spiritual healing is possible simply because man is a spiritual being, and health is the normal condition of man. It is a technique in eliminating the obstacles in human consciousness and opening “out the way whence the imprisoned splendor may escape.”
The Prospering Word
The secret to demonstrating prosperity in a spiritual way – and on no other basis can your prosperity ever be secure – is to understand and to know to the point of realization, that the one and only Source of your supply is God.

A Little Humor. . .
An executive had a reputation for never throwing anything away, especially correspondence dating back years. His secretary, cramped for filing space, one day asked to dispose of some of the older, more useless material. The executive was reluctant but finally said, “Well, all right, but be sure and make a copy of everything before you do.”
