Daily Inspiration: June 29. Making the Conscious Choice to Use Free Will – Condensed Version
Today, let us use God’s gift of free will, to help remind us, that we have a lot more control over how we view and experience our external environment, then we have been taught to believe. For example, if we wish we were a more forgiving person, let us through free will make the conscious choice, to make forgiveness our constant companion throughout the day. Before any interaction we have, let us recall our goal and say to ourselves: “Today, forgiveness is my constant companion. Today, forgiveness is my goal for this and every interaction.” By doing so, we are using our free will to set up the goal for the interaction. By setting up the goal before our interactions, we train ourselves to be proactive instead of reactive, reminding ourselves that it is we who are in control, not the outer world or those in it.
Today, let us become more consciously aware of when we are, and are not, truly using our free will. As Love’s children, anytime that we are aligned with love and its expressions, such as forgiveness, peace, and compassion, we are using our free will. When we are choosing the ‘opposite’ of love expressions, such as judgment, anger, and resentment, we are taking orders from the ego, following its programming. There is no need to put yourself or others down for unconsciously giving away your life to the ego. What is important is to begin to recognize when you are allowing the ego to live your life for you. It is when you notice that giving your life away to the ego, is not truly living, is not truly what you want, that you will begin looking for a better way, a way that puts you back in control of your own experience.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
