Daily Inspiration: May 10. The Gift Within the Present Moment – Condensed Version
How many times have we experienced difficult or challenging days, only to come out stronger and wiser because of them? How many times have we stress out and worried about something in our life, and then in the end, with hindsight, saw that everything turn out just fine? How many times have we surrendered to judgment and anger, only to finally find forgiveness and compassion where we once thought there was none to give? Would you not be grateful for someone or something that would make you stronger and wiser, for helping you understand that in the end all will be all right, for someone who helped you find forgiveness and compassion in areas in your life where you once believed that they were not available to you? These are all gifts that the present moment offers you.
Today, let us practice being grateful for the present moment. The present moment is God’s eternal gift to us. It is only when the ego is masking this understanding, that we can not see the present moment as the gift that it is. It is only when the ego is hiding the present moment from us, that such things as judgment, frustration, stress, anger, resentment, hate and revenge, can be experienced. Today, let us recognize these symbols of separation and pain, simply represent the ego masking the present moment. Today, let us practice recognizing, all such seeming negative and pain-filled moments, as just the ego’s masks, then place them aside, see the present moment as the gift that it is, offer God our gratitude, and serve as an example to those lost within the ego’s mindset, that there is a better way.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
