The snake uses its venom because it knows no other way. We are so used to the poison we carry within that we now think that we are immune to it. Regardless of how comfortable we might have convinced ourselves that we are, we were not created to carry poison or to poison each other. When we attack and spew venom, be it through thoughts, words or actions, it is our own peace of mind and joy that we are damaging. Being judgmental, angry, anxious, resentful and hateful are all signs of the poisons we still carry within. None of these are expressions of our loving nature. All that in truth flows through God, or Love, is love. Anytime that we are not being or offering love, such as through compassion, joy, peace, forgiveness and understanding, we are not being our true self.
Today, let us pay very close attention to whether we are starving the snake or feeding it — through our thoughts, words and actions. When we align our thoughts, words and actions with Love, we starve the snake. When we align our thoughts, words and actions with judgment and fear, we feed it. We control our thoughts, words and actions. Today, let us choose to no longer blame the outer world for our internal condition. To blame the world and those in it for how we feel and conduct ourself is to give our power away to them. Instead, let us take our power back by consciously aligning our thoughts, words and actions with Love, and thus representing our true nature. By doing so, we see that the snake was only an imaginary character within the ego’s fairy tale, a false concept that we no longer need to buy into as real or true.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
