Daily Inspiration: May 11. Our Journey to the Present Moment – Condensed Version

 click for audio

The journey we will be taking today is not so much an external one, as it is an internal one. It is a journey to a place we may have temporally forgotten, but in truth have never left. The present moment is our destination, a place freed from past judgments and future imaginings. Free will is one of the main navigation tools that we have been gifted to help us reach our destination. When we are focused on judgment or anger, it feels like we are going against the current, one that is in opposition to our true nature. When we are in alignment with the Love that God is, with peace guiding our decisions, we feel like we are headed in the right direction, with the wind at our back. One focus weighs us down, blows us off-center and leads us astray. The other choice helps take us to our desired destination.

Today, let us practice recognizing the signs that show us when we are in or out of alignment with the now. The present moment is an expression of Love, who is God. Thus anytime we are aligned with the now, we are aligned with Love’s expressions. Feeling peaceful, joyful, forgiving and kind are all signs of one who is in alignment with Love and the present moment. Feeling judgmental, angry, sad, stressed out, anxious, revengeful and hateful are all signs of someone who is buying into the ego’s past programs and is out of alignment with the now. Today, let us not condemn ourself or others if we find that we are not being present. Instead, let us learn to recognize the signs of when we are out of alignment with the now, stop that line of thinking, align our mind with Love, and correct our course.

All glory to God.

Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.

Hi JBC. It is HJP from sunny South Africa. How do I reprogram or remove the egos programs that stand in my way to create peace and property in my life. Thank you kindly for your daily messages that keep us sane during this period of our life. Regards. Peace Joy Love and Laughter.

Thank you HJP for being open to the message, and for being a member of our community.

Always start at the level of thought. It is the thoughts you think, the thoughts that you place your time, focus and energy on, that will end up coloring your experience. Understanding this, whenever a thought tries to enter your mind, such as those of judgment of self or others, anger, resentment, anxiousness, fear and hate, that you know will not help you create the life you want, forgive them and then stop supporting them with your time, focus or energy.

Now, use that same time, focus and energy, that the ego would have had you waste on unproductive thoughts, on productive thoughts that will help you create the life you want. Such thoughts as those of love, compassion, kindness, forgiveness, peace and joy, will begin to align you with the life you want, and so practice dedicating more of your day to those thoughts that will help you create your desired outcome.

It will be from the thoughts you think, that the words you use and actions that you take will be birthed from. And so keep practicing supporting only those thoughts that you know will lead you on your desire destination.

You have free will, practice using it, practice taking every day greater control of your mind and thinking. Remember that you should be in control of your thoughts, your thoughts should not be in control off you.

Remember that as God’s child you are forever worthy of a loving, joyful and peaceful life. Remember also that we are all One, and so offer this opportunity, this kindness and generosity, to all others, so that you may have such thoughts and blessings embracing you throughout your day.

Peace. JBC

I read the daily inspiration most days and I do try to follow your wise advice and guidance. Sometimes I feel discouraged as I am aware that my ego still has too much hold over me but then at other times I look back and see how far I have come.

I sadly lost my dear brother last year and looking back I realise that I only coped with my grief because of all I have learned here. I still have such a long way to go but each new day, I try again.

Thank you so much for your love and kindness.

Thank you Fiona for your kind words and for being a member of our community.

I’m sorry to hear about your brother.

In time, you two will meet again. Until that day comes, live your life as the light that you in truth are. Every day and in every interaction, practice aligning with your loving nature, so that through your example, you may light the way for those who are still finding it too dark to see.

Do so, so that when you meet your brother again, you will do so with your arms wide open and your head held high.

Peace. JBC
