Daily Inspiration: June 15. Offering Our Past Self Gratitude Instead of Judgment – Condensed Version
If we look into our past, we will recall situations that once brought us thoughts and emotions of anxiousness, anger and resentment, that we now deal with in a more peaceful and productive manner. The same type of situations may occur today, but thanks to our life experience, our reactions and attitudes towards them and ourselves are now more calm, positive, loving and productive. We have simply learned that there are better ways of dealing with these types of situations. A more experienced and mature attitude, has now brought us greater feelings of compassion, peace and understanding. Looking back, we see that the ability to choose peace in such situations had always been available, and that it was simply the way we looked at, reacted to, and interacted with them, that needed seasoning.
Today, let us practice, better understanding and having appreciation for, our past self. Today, when thoughts of our past and past self enters our minds, let us realize how much we have grown because of him or her, how much wisdom and knowledge we have accumulated thanks to him or her, and with this understanding, let us offer him or her our gratitude. When you are judging your journey, because we have co-created it with God, you are judging God as wrong. True peace of mind and joy can not be achieved when you are constantly unconsciously judging God, your Source, with anger, as incompetent or wrong. Today, look upon your past self with gratitude, and awaken to the realization, of all he or she has gone through and overcome, to help you become who you are now.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
