If we are currently grappling with, and holding onto unloving thoughts of self or other, today let us at least for a moment, consciously choose to place such criticisms aside. As we do, let us understand that such moments are in truth being offered to us, so that we can better understand, that it is we who should be in control of our thoughts, and that our thoughts should not be controlling us. Today, instead of fueling the flames of anger, resentment and revenge, let us stop, and see such instances as opportunities that help us practice, taking back control of our own thoughts, and thus of our own minds. Let us no longer put ourselves down and punish ourselves for thinking unloving thoughts. Instead, let us realize, that these are simply false concepts that we have been programmed to see as real. Seeing that they are not us, let us the learn to use them, to trigger in us, the desire to take back control of our own minds and lives, and thus return to our loving nature. Now, they are simply tools that are helping us consciously unite once again with and all-loving God. Ask yourself: “What are the people who you are judging really doing?” Are they not actually helping you see, through your interactions with them, a physical picture of your internal condition, of your thoughts and beliefs? Are they not actually helping you see, that what you are holding unto is separating you from the love, mercy, peace and grace of God? Having done so, would gratitude not be the appropriate response to them? Are they not in essence helping you free yourself from thoughts, and a way of thinking, that you no longer want? You are God’s, Love’s creation, thus all that in truth belongs within you, is the Love that God is. Today, choose not to hold unto or within you any thoughts that are not loving in nature. You have free will, release and let go of what you no longer want, and what no longer serves you.
Today, when the ego is once again trying to convince you that an unloving thought is the proper response to one of God’s creations, choose to stop that program response right there on its tracks. Then close your eyes, take a deep breath in, and ask and allow God’s love, mercy, peace and grace, to enter and flow through you. Now filled with your true nature, offer this same love, mercy, peace and grace to all brothers and sisters who come across your mind. Notice, that being all One, all thoughts you think of them, you get to experience yourself. What a relief it is when we recall, that is we who are in control of our thinking. It is we who can stop and break free from all unloving thoughts and patterns that the ego uses to chain us to it’s mindset and world. The day itself will show you how often you need to practice choosing your truth over your programming, choosing loving over unloving thoughts. You will know when you are once again in control of your mind, when thoughts of love, mercy, peace and grace surround and embrace you. Equally so, when you lack love, mercy, peace and grace, then let that now be a signal to you, that you are not truly in control of your thoughts and mind, that your ego is. All those in your physical and mental presence, are in essence always helping you practice keeping control of your own mind. Understanding this, would you not see them now, as a partner in your growth, healing and awakening process? Is that not what each and every brother or sister that you have judged, or had an unloving thought of, was actually helping you do? They are helping you see, through your judgments and unloving thoughts of them, when the truth in you is not in control. The more you get to practice noticing when the truth in you is not in control of your thinking, the less time you will spend in the states of confusion, conflict and chaos.
Today, let us recall that it is we, in every moment, who choose the thoughts we think. They can be loving thoughts, filled with kindness, mercy and peace, or they can be unloving thoughts of anger, resentment and revenge. The final choice, thanks to free will, is ours and ours alone to make. When we offer loving and forgiving thoughts, because we are all One, we feel blessed and at peace. When we offer unloving and judgmental thoughts, we will be in essence punishing and poisoning ourselves. Today, let us recall that as God’s creations, we are all indeed worthy of feeling kindness, blessed and at peace. Understanding this, let us practice offering all others, only what in truth they, as God’s children, are worthy of. Who in your life, are you not at peace with? Who in your life, have you not forgiven? Who in your life, is helping you see that you are carrying judgment filled thoughts within you that are poisoning and punishing you? Who is giving you, through your judgments of them, the opportunities to practice choosing forgiveness, kindness, love, mercy and peace, and thus free you from your torturous thinking? Remember, that those who come into your life to help you practice choosing forgiveness over judgment, compassion over condemnation, and peace over pain, are your teachers and liberators. Should we not be thanking and appreciating, instead of judging and condemning them? Are they not helping us practice taking greater control and personal responsibility over the thoughts we think? Is this not helping us take greater control of our minds and lives? This is what your brothers and sisters are always helping you do. They are helping you let go of who you are not, and start becoming who you in truth are and came here to be. They are helping you learn to choose with love, and by doing so, humbly represent God on Earth.
Today, let us become aware that all an unloving thought is doing, is helping us see, when the ego is in control of our thinking. If the ego is control our thinking, then it is also in control of our lives. If the ego is in control of our lives, then it is not the truth in us who is living our life. If the truth in us is not living our life, then we will feel unfulfilled. Understanding this, today, let us allow unloving thoughts to become a trigger to us, that calls us to take back control of our minds and lives. Using unloving thoughts in this manner, they now become allies in our awakening process, and not our adversaries. Let us now offer our unloving thoughts gratitude, for helping awaken us to who we no longer desire to be. Let us also be grateful to those individuals who bring up these unloving thoughts to our minds. They are helping us see, who we no longer desire to be. Those individuals who we once cursed, are now understood, seen and appreciated, as our allies in our awakening process.

Your devotional comes to my gmail inbox everyday and I read it almost every morning. They are always helpful to me and I feel the truth in the words each time I read them. This morning is an exceptionally powerful devotion for me as I learn to take responsibility for, without self-condemnation, all un-loving thoughts, recognizing that I have the gift of free will at my disposal at each moment to choose again. To see those who bring out anything which is unloving and unkind as persons to be grateful for as they play the part of our teachers is a beautiful, refreshing way to see. I am just beginning to experience the value in this newfound awareness and I pray that I continue to value what is loving and kind over the automatic displays and replays of the ego’s record of wrongdoing and judgmental displays which completely disregards the need for personal responsibility which is required for a deep work and release from those rooted thoughts once believed as my own. Thank you for your daily devotions. They bring words which breathe life into those who are interested in seeing differently and living through the guidance system of love over all else.
Thank you Rene’ for being open to the message.
Being all One, what is within one, is within All.
Today, when an unloving thought comes calling, do not respond to it for this would only place your time, energy and focus on it and thus sink you deeper into the darkness. Instead, do the opposite of what it is requesting in order to practice aligning with the loving truth in you. Once aligned again with Love, with the Mind of God, the Truth in you, gently forgive that unloving thought and let it go. Finally thank that unloving thought and all those who were a part of it for helping you practice letting go of the false and supporting and thus reinforcing only the truth in you as true.
Today, during every interaction remind yourself:”If I am not seeing only the love in my brother or sister as true, then it is not the truth in me who is in control of my thinking.” Understanding this, stop, and take back control of your own thoughts, and thus of your mind and life. You take back control by aligning your thoughts with only your eternal loving essence and nature. Then after having taken back control of your mind, thank those who once again helped you practice consciously aligning with, becoming and sharing the love that in truth you are.
Now, when an unloving thought once again tries to enter your mind’s kingdom, stop and remind yourself: “I control my thoughts, my thoughts should not be controlling me.” When your thoughts are aligned with your loving nature then let that be a sign to you that it is you who is in control of your thoughts and mind. When ‘your’ thoughts are out of alignment with your loving nature, do not condemn yourself or others for this, simply and gently stop, realizes what is going on, and take back control. The more you get to practice doing so the more normal and natural this alignment with the energy of Love will be, until one day the enery of Love is all you will be, represent, and share with all those God send your way.
All glory to God.
