A Course In Miracles is a book that contains the most profound truth and spiritual support I’ve ever encountered. The following quotes offer a glimpse at the power it contains. (T = Text)

For more information, see our links page.

“Forgiveness is my function as the light of the world.” Lesson 62

“Fear binds the world. Forgiveness sets it free.”  Lesson 332

“A miracle does nothing.  All it does is undo.”  T589

“Forgiveness takes away what stands between your brother and yourself.”  T555

“The miracle extends without your help, but you are needed that it can begin.” T576

“Love is extension. To withhold the smallest gift is not to know love’s purpose. Love offers everything forever.”  T499

“Into this empty space, from which the goal of sin has been removed, is Heaven free to be remembered. Here its peace can come, and perfect healing take the place of death.”   T567

“Perception’s laws must be reversed, because they are reversals of the laws of truth. The laws of truth foreverwill be true, and cannot be reversed; yet can be seen as upside down.”  T554

“Yet to the dedication to the truth as God established it no sacrifice is asked, no strain called forth, and all the power of Heaven and the might of truth itself is given to provide the means, and guarantee the goal’s accomplishment.”   T514

“If you wish only to be healed, you heal. Your single purpose makes this possible…The holy instant is the miracle’s abiding place…It carries comfort from the place of peace into the battleground, and demonstrates that war has no effects. For all the hurt that war has sought to bring, the broken bodies and the shattered limbs, the screaming dying and the silent dead, are gently lifted up and comforted.”   T577

“To be released from conflict means that it is over. The door is open; you have left the battleground.”   T496

Other forgiveness quotes:

“Whoever approaches Me walking, I will come to him running;
and he who meets Me with sins equivalent to the whole world,
I will greet him with forgiveness equal to it.”

— Mishkat al-Masabih (from Eknath Easwaran’s Thought for the Day)

“Forgiveness is the answer to the child’s dream of a miracle, by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is made clean again.”               –Dag Hammarskjold

“He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.”  — Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Non-reaction is not weakness, but strength. Another word for non-reaction is forgiveness. To forgive is to overlook, or rather to look through. You look through the ego to the sanity that is in every human being as his or her essence.”  — Eckart Tolle, from A New Earth

“Find your freedom with forgiveness.”  — Ana Holub
