The ego has trained us to extend its judgment-centered past learned behaviors or programs into the present. When we behave in this manner, the ego is making us think we’re experiencing the present, when in actuality, all we are really doing is reliving the past, or in other words, extending the past into the present. When we extend the past into the present, we live it over and over again, and then wonder why we keep repeating unhealthy patterns that don’t serve us. When we create a present like our past, we never truly get to experience what is really going on, the gifts that are forever being offered to us within the now. To truly experience the present moment as it was meant to be experience, we must free it from our past programming and future imaginings.
Today, when feeling stuck in the ego’s mindset, let us do the following five things: First, let us choose not to waste our time judging ourselves for thinking in this manner, for that only fuels the ego. Second, let us realize that because we have co-created our journey with God, that every moment is perfect for growth, healing and awakening. Third, let us use two tools that God has offered us to help us return to the now. One is forgiveness, forgive the past. The other is trust, place the future fully in God’s hands. Fourth, be grateful, not judgmental of self and others, that you are being given opportunities to practice aligning, through forgiveness and trust, with God’s mind. Fifth, understand that the more you practice aligning with God, the more worthy you will find that you are of the now, of Him and His eternal gifts.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
