In this transcribed excerpt from Marianne Williamson's lecture "The True Self", Williamson shares a broader view of forgiveness with us -- how true forgiveness is connected to us receiving everything that we want. There is no one to blame, nothing to point to. Only we can keep ourselves from our heart's desires. Recorded live in Los Angeles as part of Williamson's weekly lecture series this past July 11.
Forgiveness offers everything I want because whatever it is that I think I want in life but perceive that I do not have, the gap between what I think I want and having it, whatever gap exists, exists because of some unforgiveness, some lack of love on my part.
