Daily Inspiration: September 23. We Are Not Upset for the Reason We Think – Condensed Version
When we are upset, it is not really the picture of the outside world that is upsetting us, it is how we have been programmed to see, react to, interact with, and interpret that picture that is upsetting us. What we have been taught that is not a part of our eternal loving essence, comes from our past, and so, when we are upset, it is actually our relationship to the past, not the present moment that we are experiencing. We are seeing the present through the eyes of the past and that is why we are frustrated and confused as to what is really going on. We will not experience true peace within the present moment as long as we choose to experience it through our past programming.
Today when our past programming pops up, we do not use it to judge ourselves or others. Instead we use forgiveness to practice unlearning it, and return to aligning with the love that is our eternal essence. Today, let us remember that when we become upset, it is because we are defending the ego’s mindset, not ours. The ego is not us, nor even a real small part of us. The ego is an extremely limited illusionary belief system within our minds, that through our unconscious support of it, we have made seem like a real and important part of us. But because it is we who have unconsciously made it a larger and larger part of our lives, it is also we who can, through forgiveness, compassion, and understanding, undo it and begin dissolving it from our lives.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
