Matthew 6:15 (NRSV) ~ But if you do not forgive others; neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

This Scripture tells us that if we don’t forgive others the Father won’t forgive us. God doesn’t withhold forgiveness until we forgive; but the “Law of the Expression” is “like begets like.” It’s also called the “Law of Attraction,” “like attracts like.” These are Universal Spiritual Laws - what we give, we receive.

God’s Light is always shining; but if we’re in a state of unforgiveness, which we can compare to being in a cave of darkness, we are unable to receive the Light. We have to be open and receptive to God. We have to remove the block and come out of the darkness by forgiving ourselves and others.

When we give forgiveness, we are releasing the unfortunate state of mind, letting go; and when we forgive and let go, we are also released. In other words, when we forgive and release others from darkness, we benefit also by being released.

AFFIRMATION: As I forgive and release the past, I am at peace.
