A Sure Remedy by Charles Fillmore

My first Cecile Brunner rose of the season.  Can you smell it's sweet fragrance?   I love them.

Are you struggling with forgiveness of others or yourself?   Here is something worth trying.

A Sure Remedy
by Charles Fillmore

Here is a mental treatment that is guaranteed to cure every ill that flesh is heir to:  Sit for half an hour every night and mentally forgive everyone against whom you have any ill will or antipathy.  If you fear or if you are prejudiced against even an animal, mentally ask forgiveness of it and send it thoughts of love.  If you have accused anyone of injustice, if you have discussed anyone unkindly, if you have criticized or gossiped about anyone, withdraw your words by asking him, in the silence, to forgive you.  If you have had a falling out with friends or relatives, if you are at law or engaged in contention with anyone, do everything in your power to end the separation.  See all things and all persons as they really are --- pure Spirit --- and send them your strongest thoughts of love.  Do not go to bed any night feeling that you have an enemy in the world .....
You can do this if you are faithful to the silent hour, because there you will be helped to overcome the selfishness of the carnal sense. 
There is an immutable law lying back of this healing method.  God is love, and love is manifest as life.  God is thus manifest in and through all His creations.  If we do aught to cut off the love of any person we are cutting off the love of God; hence, we are cutting off the life that flows through all.  When we, by withdrawal from our fellows, in any way cut the cords of love that bind us together as men and women, we at the same time sever the arteries and veins through which the universal life flows. We then find ourselves mere bundles of strained nerves, trembling and shaking with fear and weakness, and finally dying for the lack of God's love.  But omnipresent Spirit ever seeks to flow into us and to stimulate us in every faculty.  We must, however, by our words and acts acknowledge this all-powerful Presence as the moving factor in our life, because each of us has inherent free will, which welcomes or rejects all, even God not being excepted.
Self-condemnation is also a great error, leading to dire results.  If you have accused yourself of ignorance, foolishness, fear, sickness, anxiety ... ask forgiveness, for each, of the loving Father in whose image and likeness you spiritually have perfect life.
