It is not what is occurring in the outer world that affects the kind of day we have, but how we choose to react to what is happening, that truly gives form to our experience. We can only define this world through our minds. The external world is simply a physical reflection of the thoughts we think. If we choose to forgive our own misperceptions about the world, we experience peace, joy, freedom and understanding. If we choose to war with the outer world, we will find confusion, chaos, guilt and pain. The power to experience the life we want resides within us, and not “out there.” The ego would insist we judge and blame the outer world for how it “makes us” feel. This gives our power away to the outer world. In reality, the only power the outer world has over us is the power that we give to it.
Today, let us take full responsibility for the kind of day we experience. We do so by recalling that in every moment we have two choices: One is to allow the ego to rule our minds, and the other is to rule our own minds. When the ego is ruling, we feel judgmental, angry, resentful, worried or stressed. When our loving eternal essence is ruling, we feel forgiving, peaceful, joyful and understanding. Today, let us stop making excuses and blaming others “out there” for how we feel. The kind of day we now have is the kind of day we now choose to have. The level of peace or emotional pain that we focus on and experience is now purely up to us to decide. Today, let us, be grateful to God that, thanks to free will, it is we and we alone who decide the nature and expression of our experience.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
