Teaching: NTI Daily Lesson: Anytime But Now

The thinking mind is busy making scripts.
What the heck does that mean?
It means, it is busy thinking about any time but now. It is thinking about what was for supper last night, or what is going to happen tomorrow. Or it is thinking about what is coming up next – which is a favorite for television.
When one is totally and completely in the now, there are no thoughts about yesterday or tomorrow. There is only the present moment.
One of the things that was an 'ah ha' moment for me was when I realized-remembered that the past and the future were happening in the now.
What this means for us is that we can forgive in the present moment and erase the past and collapse the future.
The Course tells us that forgiveness collapses time. What does that mean?
It simply means that when we forgive things we perceive to have been wrong in the past (or even if it appears to be happening in the present moment), we collapse any future events that may have resulted from the decisions we made about the past event.
For instance, when we judge someone as 'evil', the law of Karma (which is nothing more than self-judgement), dictates that we will experience scenarios in the future that will attempt to 'prove' we are right about our judgements.
But when we forgive that so called -evil- person, those events do not have to happen. We are released from our self-imposed ball and chain.
Forgiveness now saves lifetimes later – literally works BECAUSE everything (both the past AND the future) are happening RIGHT NOW.
So, for this Christmas, give the gift that keeps on giving – forgiveness for your self and for everyone in the only time that it can be given – RIGHT NOW!
