Forgiveness: the mother of all paradigm shifts
If sin is not an act, but a state, then it follows that forgiveness, too, must be a state. If sin is defined as breaking or disobeying God’s law, it defines sin as doing something wrong or evil. But what if the whole state of being called ‘good and evil’ has nothing whatsoever to do with God? What if morality itself is not God-made but man-made? Ego-made? What if right and wrong is a delusion? Hamlet said, ‘There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so’. The mind makes things ‘right or wrong’ not God. What if guilt itself is the sin: the inner state of self-judgment that cuts us off from God? Forgiveness therefore is a transcendent state: a state above and beyond the prison of the mind and its compulsive need to judge.
Deeper: how could the blood shed by a man called Jesus ‘forgive’ the sin of the world? Applying the mind with its logic and reasoning power led the three amigos away from the scripture into a rational-sounding secular hypothesis: he must have survived the crucifixion and sired a dynasty! And then — so what? Are you experiencing Ananda through contemplating the womb of Mary Magdalene?
So let us apply our transcendent powers. Let us look within and ask the master Shakespeare to guide us. Let’s open ourselves to a mystical revelation. A state of heightened awareness. A way that leads to the bliss of letting go of all guilt: absolute absolution.
Can you even begin to imagine a world without sin, without guilt, without resentment, without judgement? Dare you visit that world deep inside where all is
