The ego tries to convince us that we need what another person has. It tries to convince us of a world of scarcity, where if one wins, the other must lose. If we buy into this mindset, we spend our life on its hamster wheel and rat race, fighting our way to get to some imaginary finish line before the others do. We claw our way, step-by-step, day-by-day, up the ego’s steep and treacherous mountain, always thinking that we only have a limited amount of time to get to the top. That is exactly where the ego wants us — tired, worried and stressed out. For the busier we are, the less time we have to question it and its mindset. Aligned with this mindset, we judge that our progress is not fast enough, good enough or worthy of the work and sacrifice that we have put in.
Today, if we find ourselves running in the ego’s rat race, let us stop, breathe deeply, and choose God’s timing over ours. When we choose Divine timing, peace results. When we choose the ego’s timing, chaos, conflict, anger and resentment result. Love is our Creator and peace is an expression of love. Peace is thus our natural state of mind and inheritance. But, through free will, we must accept our inheritance to truly enjoy it. Our journey is a sacred partnership with God. Let us recall that we are not some rodent on a hamster wheel. We are the creations of the Divine. Today, let us fully trust in the sacred nature of the plan that we have co-created with God, and be at peace. What race must we now or ever again run if we already have God’s love? If we already have everything that in truth we have ever wanted?
May your day be filled with Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
