Episode 16: Forgiveness as Science and Art

Many people find it difficult to forgive and see no logical reason for doing so. Mary McGovern interviews Karin Jansson from Sweden after she gave a lecture at the Martinus Centre entitled “Forgiveness as Science and Art”. She describes the process of forgiving with your brain and with your heart, and how it leads to a union with all life.

The idea of forgiveness is essential to Christianity, but Christ didn’t provide any logical explanation for it. Martinus points to non-forgiveness as a very heavy burden that most of us carry with us, a burden that contributes to illness and depression. His world picture helps us to understand the laws of life and why it pays to forgive.

Episode 5: The Cosmic Message of the Christmas Gospel

The Christmas gospel can be understood on two levels: as an account of historic events and as a symbolic description of the fate of mankind. In the fifth episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Mary McGovern interviews Tryggvi Gudmundsson from Iceland about Martinus’s interpretation of the various symbols contained in the Christmas gospel: the evolution of the individual out of the animal kingdom towards cosmic consciousness (the birth of the Christ child within each of us), the principle of giving, the eternal contrasts between light and darkness and the realisation of our longing for a future society in which light and peace dominate on all levels.

Tryggvi Gudmundsson is a life-long student of Martinus Cosmology and has a master’s degree in the history of religion from the University of Copenhagen.
