Forgiveness: the Meaning, the Experience and the Expression in Writing

Projection makes perception. The world you see is what you gave it, nothing more than that. Therefore, seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.

Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) April 15, 2012

The Miracles Communication Center of A Course In Miracles International, today confirmed the schedule for Ray Comeau's Creative Writing Workshops as part of the preparation for International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace later on this year.

The announcement simply states, “The Workshops will be on the Bridge at the Cheese Factory Restaurant Wednesday afternoons, 2-4, beginning April 18, and continuing April 25, and May 2 and 9. Refreshments will be served.”

One of the ways in which everyone is encouraged to participate in the celebration of International Forgiveness Week and Weekend of Perfect Peace (September 14-23, 2012), is to submit for publication, written accounts of personal experiences of forgiveness.

These upcoming workshops at the Cheese Factory Restaurant, freely given and open to the public, are designed to help those who are willing to share their forgiveness experiences in writing but may feel they lack the skill or practice to do so.

Regular workshop participant, Janni Collins, herself a published writer, describes Comeau's workshops as “an opportunity to discover your joyful peaceful Self behind your grievances... ...the truth of Who you are behind a veil of shame and blame. ”

In a recent call for essays on Forgiveness, Event Coordinator, Ray Comeau wrote, “I walk into a darkened movie theater, sit down, and face a blank screen. The projector comes on, and I enter into the drama of the images on the screen, forgetting where I am, following the images cavorting across the screen, entering fully into the story.

“At the end, the lights come on, the credits roll, the screen goes blank. The projector goes off. I stand up and walk out. This is a moment analogous to Forgiveness, letting it all go.”

Comeau goes on to quote Jesus Christ in A Course In Miracles saying, “Projection makes perception. The world you see is what you gave it, nothing more than that. Therefore, seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.”

“That change,” added Comeau, “that shift, is forgiveness.”

“Please write about your experience of forgiving thoughts in 600 words, or less, and Submit Your Essay, using this link: http://www.forgivenessweek.org/writing.php.”

International Forgiveness Week and the Weekend of Perfect Peace will be observed worldwide on September 14 – 23, 2012.
