‘An eye for an eye’ is in no way an excuse for revenge. It is in no way a call to strike back at another for what you believe he or she has done to you. An eye for an eye simply reinforces the idea that we are all One, and thus what you do to “another,” you are doing to yourself. This thought will be best understood in the life review process that takes place after physical death. In it you will be shown, and you will be able to feel and experience, how the other person felt during your interaction. This is not done as a form of punishment, judgment or revenge, but as a learning device, to assist developing souls, more fully understand the consequences of their actions. You will in the end, be grateful to God and to all those involve in this life review process, for offering you the opportunity to fully comprehend how others felt. Yet, we need not wait for our physical death, to experience how truly connected we are to each other. Be kind and compassionate towards another, and feel these actions soothing your own soul. Be judgmental and angry towards another, and feel the heavy burden that such actions leave within you and have you carry. Understanding this, why would you consciously ever choose to poison yourself through your own thoughts and interactions with others? Why not use your interactions with others, to remind you, of how truly worthy you are of experiencing love, by offering it to all others. Love is the main energetic expression of God, and so when you are offering love to others, you are saying to yourself that you are worthy of God’s company. Equally so, when you are withholding love from others, what you are really saying to yourself is, that you are not worthy of God’s presence in your heart, mind and life. You have free will, only you can keep away and reject God’s Love, by withholding His Love from others.
If we, in our life review, will be grateful to all those who have been a part of our life, then why wait till then, to offer gratitude now? It is by remembering that each moment, and every one in that moment, is here to assist you in achieving a greater sense of self-awareness, and a higher level of consciousness, that gratitude can be offered now, and thus peace can be found now. Right now, all those that you have judged and sentence to a life without you, can be forgiven, and instead offered gratitude for the part that they played in your lesson plan and journey. By doing so, you can find peace now, and not have to wait till the end of your journey to achieve the state of peace. The time in this life that we spend away from peace, between judging someone and forgiving them, is measure in many forms such as through anger, pain, sadness, resentment, hate, regret and revenge. But because we have been given free will, the amount of time that we spend being weigh down and engulfed by those energies and emotions, is purely up to us. We can forgive now, and thus find peace now. We can also hold onto our judgments for a lifetime, and suffer for a lifetime. In the end, only we, through our thoughts and actions, can imprison ourselves, and it is in the end, only we, who can through forgiveness, set ourselves free. Forgiveness and freedom are both expressions of Love, and Love is your Creator, would it not seem logical and wise, to offer all others what your Creator is, in every moment, offering you? Why would you not want, in every moment, to align with the Love that God is? Why would you not desire to experience all the beautiful expressions of Love, of God, here now on Earth? Today, let us practice making a concerted effort to align with Love, by offering it to all others. Then, allow yourself to feel, how truly natural, normal and right, this expression of your soul is.
Today, let us remember, the gift that each and every moment truly offers us, and let go of the childish games of judgment, one-upmanship, anger, resentment and revenge. Let us recall, that in every moment, our brothers and sisters are doing and did, the best they could with the knowledge they had available to them at that time. If others and ourselves are always, in every moment, at our highest level of consciousness, are we not also doing the best we can with the life experience and knowledge that we have available to us at that moment in time? And, if we are doing the best we can with the tools we have, is judgment of self and others truly a worthy, appropriate, and logical response to self and others? No, these are, when you truly understand the gift that the present moment offers, not the proper responses to yourself or others. Compassion, kindness, forgiveness, understanding, gratitude and peace, are the responses of those who truly can see and understand the perfect and sacred nature of each and every moment. Let us today, aligned with the present moment, forgive others their trespasses, so that it will help us recall, that we too are worthy of forgiveness. Today, let us remember, that when we look to take an eye for an eye, this is only a symbol that it is we, who are truly blind. My dear friend, the cross has been overcome, you no longer need carry what does not belong to you. Only the Love that God is belongs to you, because only the Love in you is truly real. Today, let us together, through Love’s expression of forgiveness, practice letting go of everything other than Love. An eye for an eye, anger, resentment and revenge, these are all foolish games that only the blind play. You have free will, be blind no longer, choose to finally see The Light, by offering all that The Light is, to all others.
Today, let us recognize, that it is only those who play ‘an eye for an eye’ who are truly blind. Let us today not judge the blind, for that would make us blind ourselves. We are the children of The Light, and for us to recognize this, we must offer it, all that it represents, to all others. It is only when our light extends from us, that we get to see, share and experience it. The more we get to see, share and experience our light, the more worthy we will recall that we are of it. Remember that you are a child of The Light, and that we are all One, and so all that you are forever worthy of, your brothers and sisters are forever worthy of. Today, thank them for offering you, the opportunities to see, share and experience your light. Thank them for helping you remember, that you are forever worthy of all that God is. Today, allow your love offerings to symbolize to you, that you are finally beginning to truly see.
