Imagine equating life to a dream. During a dream, regardless of how real, frustrating or scary it gets, most of us do not realize that we are dreaming. It is only after we awaken from the dream that we fully realize the illusionary nature of the dream. Equally so, in life, many times we act like someone who deep inside we know we are not. When we are living through fear’s expressions, such as judgment, stress, anger, resentment and hate, we are being who the ego has programmed us to be. Choosing to be right instead of happy, condemning others instead of being compassionate, holding onto resentment instead of forgiving — these are all signs of one who believes the ego’s programs are real and thus sees the dream as real.
Today, let us recall that feeling lost and confused does not mean there is something wrong with us or that we are not wise, spiritual or good enough. These feelings are simply signs that our mind is temporarily asleep to our true nature. All of our experiences within the dream have brought us to this place where we are ready to wake up. Knowing this, let us now offer our gratitude to those who participated in our dreams. When we offer gratitude to all those we once judged, it is a sign that our mind is awakening to our true nature. Gratitude, peace and clarity are all aspects of love, all expressions of the awakened mind. The more we choose to align with any of the aspects of the awakened mind, the less lost and confused we will feel, and thus the less judgmental we will be toward others.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
