Daily Inspiration: July 17. The Essence of the Present Moment is Peace – Condensed Version

To experience true peace, make the conscious choice to forgive the past, place the future fully in God’s hands, and bring your awareness to the present moment. The present moment, or the now, is God’s gift to you. It is where God’s peace forever resides. You may find yourself high in the Himalayan Mountains or inside prison walls. Yet regardless of where you are located, if you are in the now, then you are one with the state of peace. In any moment, simply acknowledge the presence of peace, and you will be one with it. Today, if the ego tries to drag you back into the past or project you into the future: forgive, trust the Divine and return back to the present moment. Very simply, forgive the past, place the future fully in God’s hands and return to the now. When you do, you’ll experience the peace that, as God’s creation, is your inheritance.

Today, let us focus on becoming present, on returning our mind to the now, where the peace of God forever resides. The state of peace is a sign of being truly present. Let us learn to recognize the signs of when we are living in the past or the future. When we find ourself judging, angry and/or resentful, these are signs that we have bought into our past programs, and thus remain stuck in the past. A tool that helps release us from the past is forgiveness. When we are worried, anxious and/or stressed out, these are signs that we are being ruled by our apprehension about the future. A strategy that helps resolve this is trusting God and placing the future fully in the Divine’s hands. Today, let us practice using these tools until they become our natural responses to the ego’s delusional thinking.

All glory to God.

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