Forgiveness recognises what you thought your brother did to you has not occurred. It does not pardon sins andmake them real. It sees there was no sin. And in that view are all your sins forgiven. What is sin, except a false idea about God's Son? Forgiveness merely sees its falsity, and therefore lets it go. What then is free to take its place is now the Will of God. An unforgiving thought is one which makes a judgement that it will not raise to doubt, although it is not true. The mind is closed, and will not be released. The thought protects projection, tightening its chains, so that distortions are more veiled and more obscure; less easily accessible to doubt, and further kept from reason. What can come between a fixed projection and the aim that it has chosen as its wanted goal?
An unforgiving thought does many things. In frantic action it pursues its goal, twisting and overturning what it sees as interfering with its chosen path. Distortion is its purpose, and the means by which it would accomplish it as well. It sets about its furious attempts to smash reality, without concern for anything that would appear to pose a contradiction to its point of view.
Forgiveness, on the other hand, is still, and quietly does nothing. It offends no aspect of reality, nor seeks to twist it to appearances it likes. It merely looks, and waits, and judges not. He who would not forgive must judge, for he must justify his failure to forgive. But he who would forgive himself must learn to welcome truth exactly as it is. Do nothing, then, and let forgiveness show you what to do, through Him Who is your Guide, your Saviour and Protector, strong in hope, and certain of your ultimate success. He has forgiven you already, for such is His function, given Him by God. Now must you share His function, and forgive whom He has saved, whose sinlessness He sees, and whom He honours as the Son of God.

A Happy Story
Forever and Eternally There lives a Glorious Spirit An All-Loving, All-Powerful, and All-Wise Being: The Name is I AM THAT I AM or God And I AM THAT I AM Extends or Creates Infinitely Giving All Love, All Power, and All Wisdom.
Extending Unending Gifts to Creation: The Name is I AM or Christ And God and Christ Dance a Holy Dance And sing a Holy Song Being at Peace. Extending in Joy For Happily Their Will is One. Once upon an illusion of time, A tiny tick at most was it, An idea seemed to enter the Christ Mind, But was instantly Answered by the Holy Spirit. For God knows only Creation And God is beyond a shadow of doubt And thus the Holy Spirit represented God To a mind that for an instant had seemed to doubt.
Within that instant time seemed to arise, An illusion of mind apart and afraid, An alien emotion of fear imagined. Yet the Truth of Love the Holy Spirit "Saved", Within the gap that seemed to be The past, seems to repeat itself. A belief in separation and linear time Perpetuates a false sense of self, Within the gap of dreaming time A cosmos seemed to form And to defend against Awakening. A body identity became the "norm". The cosmos that seemed to be projected Within the gap of doubt in mind Was used to hide the Vision of Christ. Five senses made to keep mind blind, The deception can seem very real When pleasures and attack are sought and "found". The false self needs senses and defenses, The Holy Spirit offers a turn around, Though it can seem like quite a while Within the circular spell of time. An illusion of identity in bodies Could never substitute for One Whole Mind.
This story is a Happy One, The past came to an end. For the tiny doubt was Answered forever And never can arise again. Yes with the Holy Spirit as Guide, The sleeping mind is Now Awake! Thank You for your Being, Christ Love is Forever Mind Awake, Good news, good cheer! To whoever has the ears to hear, The Kingdom of Heaven is Here! Remembrance of I AM THAT I AM is very dear And though it seemed a world of dreams, In darkness did arise, Now in the Light Love is Revealed An "opposite" to Love was but a lie And God and Christ Dance a Holy Dance And sing a Holy Song, Being at Peace Extending in Joy For Happily Their Will is One.

The Australian media team have sprung into action, filming and editing the fortnightly church services with glee! Here is a recent service by Kirsten, entitled 'Innocence'; filmed, photographed and edited by Peter Kirk and Rochelle Jekot.
Grabbing the camera and taking photos is just a very simple way for me to drop into light joy and no mind chatter. As I look through the camera the images seem to start calling me, and I see something more intimate and real than just a flower or some water, or a body. It allows me to be very present and in this state I feel like I'm in Love with the Spirit that is quietly beckoning. The montages are a way of extending this feeling. A lot of the photos in this montage were taken at Living Waters in Yowrie where quite a bit of transformation seems to happen for me. The song and some of the images came in as I was driving there on my last visit. Other pictures are taken locally here around Newcastle, where I'm quietly settling into Love. Somehow putting the photos to music in a montage brings even greater stillness to my mind, almost like the images drop away and the resonance of Love is all I'm called to join with and extend.

One way of giving and supporting Living Miracles Australia (LMA) is through membership. This love offering of support is a way for us all to be involved in a ministry whose only purpose is to extend the love of Christ and allow this love to flow in all its glorious fullness!
On a practical note we are also supporting the on-going activities of the church to extend to everyone through church services, inspirational materials, gatherings, counselling sessions and all the unseen things like transport and communication tools.
Even though the benefits of membership are spiritual by nature, there are also published materials and a 10% discount for the cost of retreats, plus you will be notified of church happenings and celebrations through our monthly newsletter!
My experience through my contribution to the ministry has been so rich and fulfilling that it inspires me to suggest you join! If your church membership has lapsed or you have not yet joined I encourage you to look within and see whether you feel the call to contribute in support of our shared ministry.
Below is a link if you feel the heart tickle to join with us in this way!
David and the Messengers meet with those who desire to discern between the ego's thought system and the Holy Spirit's purpose of forgiveness. Acknowledging that truth is in the Mind, they offer an invitation to engage in the uncovering of the beliefs that seem to obstruct the awareness of love's presence. The Messengers of Peace serve as mighty companions for each other and recognize that awakening is not a casual endeavour, but one that demands a deliberate and uncompromising commitment. The depth of devotion and faith reflect their willingness to question all assumptions. Total transformation of the mind is approached with passion, devotion, and a burning desire from within. This is their unified goal and purpose.
