Daily Inspiration: December 18. Reversing the Ego’s Anger Programmed Response – Condensed Version
Today we take as many opportunities as become available to us to practice reversing the ego’s anger based programming. If we are angry with someone, it is because we have convinced ourselves that they have done something “wrong” to us, and are thus deserving of our anger, our punishment. This is what the ego insists to us is a ‘just,’ ‘proper,’ and ‘natural’ response. But why is it that the ego’s ‘justified’, ‘proper’, and ‘natural’ response, in our moments of reflection, burdens us? Why does it weigh us down? What use are the ego’s “solutions” if what they bring us is further despair and confusion? In reality, to be right is to not to be angry, but to be at peace. For peace is our true natural state. Thus if you’re not at peace, then somewhere you have allowed the ego’s programming to override your true nature.
Today we do not wait for peace to come to us. Instead we have the courage to take the first step and lead ourselves to the state of peace by forgiving our sisters and brothers trespasses, just as we would want ours to be forgiven. Understanding that the ego’s “anger solution” only brings us despair and confusion, we then consciously do the opposite of what the ego would have us do. Instead of following the ego’s tired and ineffective demands to judge, curse and negatively think of others, we go within and when we think of them we forgive them. We send them a blessing. We pray for their health, happiness, healing, and peace of mind. The ego will try to convince you that this will be hard to do. But ask yourself, isn’t what you are now being demanded to do by the ego, not truly a heavier burden to carry?
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
