When you awaken, you will recall that you were the author of your dream, not just a victim or a lonely figure in the dream. When awaken, and the understanding of Oneness returns, she remembers that the figures in the dream, were not separate entities from her, but actually extensions and expressions of her, the dreamer. If the dreamer has a peaceful mind, she will see and interact with more peaceful figures. If the dreamer has a chaotic mind, her figures will appear and act more confused and chaotic. In the dream, all the emotional pain, suffering, stress and anxiety, in our minds, are caused by our reactions to these figures, figures that we ourselves have created and defined. Once the lesson, that we are simply reacting to figures in our dreams, is recalled, we will forgive and released “them” from all we thought “they” did to us. Imagine, no longer judging anyone outside of you for how you feel. As we awaken, we recognize that, because we have done this to ourselves, we also have the power to undo what we have done. Imagine, being able to extrapolate the analogy of the dream, into your physical experience, and start to notice, that it is not really what others are doing within your experience that is affecting you, it is how you are choosing to consciously or unconsciously react to them, and define what they are doing, that is truly affecting you. In essence you are, in every moment, authoring the world you are experiencing. If you are experiencing a confusing and chaotic world, it is you who are defining the world in such a manner, thus the ability to change this world and the way you view and interact with it, is then not really out there, it is within you. Once you start taking personal responsibility for the world that you are seeing, defining and reacting to, it is then that your judgments of self, others and this world, will begin to diminish.
Your brothers and sisters actions, are in the end, not what truly affects you, what truly affects you is your interpretation of, and reaction to, their actions. They are really not to blame for how you feel. It is you who must, if you desire true peace, start taking personal responsibility for how you interpret and interact with your world. Today, notice how when you are in a good mood, your day seems to be smoother, and the people in it seem to be more pleasant. Also notice, that when you are in a bad mood, that same exact day, seems to drag on and be more difficult, and those you interact with seem to be less jolly and nice. Notice, how when you are in a bad mood, your patience with others seems to fade faster, yet, when you are in a good mood, your patience with others seems to be more resilient. And so you see, the world itself is not really changing, what is changing is your mood, your interpretation of the world, the way you unconsciously or consciously choose to react to, define and participate in it. Imagine, your state of peace, having no relationship to what those outside of you are thinking, saying or doing. How much more power would you have over your world, if you but realize, that the outside world, in truth has no power over you? When you awaken, you will realize, that the outside world only ever had the power over you, that you allowed it to have. It is thus in your mind, your perception of how you see and interact with this world, where true healing must take place. It is for this reason, that once your mind is healed, the whole world is heal. Is this not a much easier world to live in, when you only have to change and heal one mind to have true peace, instead of having to change and heal seven billion plus minds? The awaken mind realizes, that the power resides within it, and not in the outside world. The mind that remains asleep, thinks that the opposite of that is true.
Today, let us awaken to our true power, by recalling, that we are the authors of our dream, and thus have the ultimate say of how we choose to act, react, interact, interpret and participate in, our world. It is we who have authored, and are authoring, in every moment, the world we see. It is we who are writing each page of our story. It is we, who decide how much compassion, kindness, love, generosity, charity, understanding and love, we will express, and thus get to experience. How much time we spend in the states of emotional pain or peace, is in the end, up to us. It is we, who through our minds, interpret the world we see. It is we, who choose how to react to our own interpretations. It is we, who decide, how much time and energy we will spend on our emotional reactions to our experience. Let us today awaken and recall, that it is we who were and are, the true authors of our dream. Once you begin to awaken to the fact that you are authoring your dream, would it not make sense to make peace, love, compassion, forgiveness and joy, some of the main characters within your dream? You as God’s creation are forever worthy of a peaceful, loving, compassionate, forgiving and joyful world, remind yourself of this, when you are creating a world that you do not desire to experience. When you are not experiencing a peaceful, loving, compassionate, forgiving and joyful world, simply make the conscious choice to awaken from your dream, and begin creating the world, that you want to experience. You are in essence the hero, director and producer, of your journey, and so when you find yourself on a road that you do not want to be on, waste no more time complaining about it, simply remember who put you there, and then make the conscious choice to switch directions.
Today, let us recall, that God is Love and All, and thus if we are not experiencing Love or its expressions, then we are simply dreaming. Only you can define the world you see. Only you can choose how you will react to what you are seeing. Only you can decide the level of peace or emotional pain that you will choose to focus on and thus experience. Only you can decide if you will forgive or not, and thus if you will carry judgments heavy burdens or experience the peace of mind, joy and freedom, that forgiveness has to offer you. It is you who has the power over the world you see, because it is you who chooses what you see by how you choose to define your experience. Let us today, choose to no longer judge ourselves or others, if we are experiencing a world that we do not want, instead, let us simply recognize that we are doing this to ourselves, and that because of this, through free-will, we can undo what we have done.
