“Love Works a Healing Power,” by Catherine Ponder:
When we hold resentment toward another, we are bound to that person or condition by a cosmic link and forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and be free.
Since other people are children of God, there is really nothing to forgive. They have not really failed us, or disappointed us, or let us down, or shamed us. They may have stumbled while crossing our pathway, but they are children of God who had temporarily lost their way. If they crossed our pathway it was because they needed and wanted our blessings. They were unconsciously looking to us to be steadied and set right.
Our progress has not been hindered, no matter what they did or did not do. They did not, they could not, keep our good from us. They crossed our path by divine appointment, even though they seemed to hurt us for a little while. When people bother us in any way, it is because their souls are trying to get our divine attention and our blessing. When we give them that, they no longer bother us. They fade out of our lives and find their good elsewhere.
A SURE REMEDY FOR RESURRECTING HEALTH, WEALTH AND HAPPINESS
Deliberately practice the healing power of love through acts of forgiveness and release. Charles Fillmore describes this as a “sure remedy” for resurrecting health, wealth and happiness. Bless your problem, whatever it be, with a thought somewhat like this: “I NOW RELEASE YOU AND BLESS YOU. DIVINE LOVE IS ADJUSTING MY LIFE AND ITS PROBLEMS. REALIZING THIS, I ABIDE IN PEACE.” Every person who allies himself with the power of divine love creates a bit of heaven on earth.
