It is not what is occurring in the outside 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 day. We can only define this world through our minds, and thus the external world is simply a physical reflection and representation of our internal condition. If we choose to forgive the outer world and ourselves, we will find peace, joy and understanding. If we choose to war with it and ourselves, we will find confusion, chaos, and pain. The power thus, after all is said and done, resides within us, and not “out there.” The ego would insist otherwise, demanding we must blame and judge the outside world, and those in it, for how they “make us” feel. In reality, the only power the outside world has over us, is the power that we give to it.
Today, let us practice taking full responsibility for the kind of day that we are experiencing. We do so by recalling that in every moment we have two choices, to allow the ego to rule our minds, or to rule our own minds. When the ego is in charge, we will feel judgmental, angry, resentful, worried or stressed. When our loving eternal essence is in charge, forgiveness, peace, love, joy and understanding, result. Let us stop making excuses and blaming others “out there” for how we feel. Let us now, fully control, the thoughts we think, and thus of how we see, experience and participate, in this world. The kind of day we now have, is the kind of day we now choose to have. Let us today, 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.
