Imagine, being a soldier trying to clear a “hostile” section of a block. You go house-to-house, room-by-room, with your gun in hand, tensed up, and ready to shoot back at any perceived attack. With every person, noise, or situation that’s out of the norm, your training kicks in, adrenalin flows, defenses heighten and your attack begins. Even when we take this intensity down quite a few notches, is this not the way many people on this planet are living their lives? Do people not immediately judge and put up defenses against anything and anyone that does not fit into their mold or way of thinking? Is this not an exhausting, anxiety producing, and insane way to live? Going into every room, every situation, with judgments in hand, ready to fire at anyone and anything that does not fit into the ego’s idolatry.
Today, let us recall, that the ego’s battlefields, are not our true home. Let us do this, by answering the ego’s calls to judgment with forgiveness, its demands for condemnation with compassion, and its insistence to be right with our choice to be happy. Doing so, we turn its calls for conflict and war, into opportunities to choose peace and joy by developing a greater trust in God’s plan. This is how we will raise ourselves above the battlefields. This is how we will learn to lead others out of the darkness, confusion, conflict, chaos and pain of the ego’s mindset and world. Today, let us recall, that as God’s creations, only the Love in all of us is forever real and true. Today, above the battlefield let us, by the way we treat others, remind them that the road to peace and joy are also and always, available to them.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
