Daily Inspiration: August 10. Judgment & Not Forgiving are Forms of Self-Abuse – Condensed Version

What you think of and do to “others,” you feel and experience yourself. Do your judgments of others not weigh you down, no matter how right the ego says you are to make them? Does your inability to forgive others not bring you a sense of incompletion and regret? Does this way of thinking not increase your daily levels of stress, anxiety and guilt? Does being in a bad mood not hasten your anger? When in this mindset, does your patience not fade quicker? Do these judgments and your lack of forgiveness not keep you tossing and turning at night? How much longer will you insist on punishing yourself with your own thoughts? If you have come to this message, it is because the time for judgment, punishment and pain is over, and the time for forgiveness, healing and peace has come.

Today, let us practice respecting ourselves. We do so by recalling that, being all One, the thoughts, words and emotions we use on others, first have to flow through us. It will be these thoughts, words and emotions that will either poison or heal us. If they align with the ego’s judgment-centered mindset and its desire to hold power over others by not forgiving them, then it is we who will suffer. Still, let us not despair, for thanks to free will, our freedom from the ego’s mindset is just a choice away. The choice that frees us is the one that aligns us with the Mind and Love of God. As we practice loving everyone, we also practice loving every part of our Whole Self. In doing so, we will realize that there is truly nothing more self-loving and self-respecting than to love and respect everyone and all.

All glory to God.

Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
