video of James reading with commentary
When you react with anger toward others, you are not actually angry at them; you are angry at your perception of them. It is not what they have said or done that is making you angry. It is how you interpreted and defined what they have said or done that is making you angry. The way to peace is not found “out there.” It is found within you. Peace comes by changing your perception of them, not by them changing. Love is your true essence and nature. Thus the only part of you that can react with anger is the part of you that remains asleep to your true essence and nature. Ask yourself, “What has the ego’s “solution” of anger ever offered me?” Maybe frustration, anxiousness, resentment and regret? Are such emotions ever worthy of any of God’s creations?
Today, let us practice using the ego’s tool of anger, not as a form of punishment, but as a tool to help us heal. When we learn to use any of the ego’s tools — not to keep us attached to its delusional world but to release us from it — we begin to see and understand how God uses all for good. God has given us free will. Thus we can experience anger as many times as we need to in order to figure out how truly useless it is. For this freedom, let us offer God our gratitude. Let us also offer our gratitude to all who are a part of the process of helping us awaken from the delusional state of anger. Imagine now, thanks to our life experience and greater self-awareness, being able to thank those who the ego once programmed us to curse. Now, who we once blamed, we bless, and by doing so, we help heal and awaken this world.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
