Today, let us not extend the past into the present, and thus create a future like our past. Let us no longer allow the ego’s dark and negative thoughts to be given free rein to spoil our day. Let us no longer give them the fuel and power they need, through our focus on them, to take our nights hostage. Those dark and negative thoughts are now in the past, where they belong. The past, in reality, is gone; it exists no more. It is only when we drag our past into the present that we give it permission to rule over us. When this occurs, we are not living our life — our past programmed-self is living our life for us. Today, when the past knocks on our mind’s door, asking us to keep on judging our self or others, let us recall where such thinking has taken us before, and decline.
Today, let us practice becoming aware of when we are in the now or stuck in the past. When aligned with the now, we are and share Love’s expressions, such as peace, joy, compassion, forgiveness, hope and healing. When we are dragging our past programs into the now, we feel judgmental, frustrated, angry, stressed out, worried, resentful, jealous, hateful or revengeful. The point is not to punish our self when we realize that we are out of alignment with the now. The goal is to catch our self more quickly, forgive our self and others, and correct our path. Free will reminds us that in any moment, we can forgive, release the past and return to the now, where the peace of God forever resides.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
