Daily Inspiration: January 29. Gratitude and the Gift of Free Will – Condensed Version
Today let us offer God gratitude for the gift of free will. The gift of free will gives you the power to see, experience, and participate in this life exactly as you so choose to. This world’s neutrality is broken by how we ourselves choose to see and define it. We can, thanks to free will, define it as helpful for our growth, healing and awakening, and thus see it with peace of mind, joy and understanding. Equally so, we can experience those same events as being injurious to us, and thus become upset, sad, depress and hurt by our life experience. And so you see, it is not the outside world that truly dictates what energies and emotions we should feel, it is our interpretation of the outer world that does, and thus the power of which way we will see, participate and interact in this world is purely up to us, our free will.
Today we will use free will to take back our power from the ego’s programming. Where the ego has programmed us to see guilt, we will instead choose to see innocence. Where it insists that judgment is justified, we will instead choose to offer forgiveness. When the ego demands we worry ourselves into a state of stress, we will instead choose to fully trust God’s plan and experience peace. When the ego requires we bring up the past or concern ourselves with the future, we will instead return our focus to the present moment knowing that we have co-created our sacred journey with God, and so all, in the end, will be all right. Let us also recall that it is our brothers and sisters participation in our life that is helping us practice and reinforce our free will, and so let us also be grateful to them.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
