Today, let us practice letting go of the ego’s fear-based foundation, a foundation that in truth has never supported us. Stress, anxiousness, anger, resentment, hate and thoughts of revenge, are all forms, extensions and expressions of this fear-centered mindset. The ego has taught us that these expressions are ‘normal’ and ‘natural’ responses and solutions to our experience, and yet what have the ego’s responses and ‘solutions,’ ever truly offered answered or solved for us? Has the ego’s mindset, its judgment filled, yet so-called “normal” and “correct” responses, to self and others, ever brought you the everlasting peace of mind and joy that your soul seeks? No, it has not. Yet, no matter how deep down into its darken pit the ego takes us, let us be sure to always remember this: God being Perfect Love, can use all for good. And so how do we begin to gain clarity and see the good in our confusion and chaos? Let’s imagine, that if the ego’s responses and solutions take us to emotional dead-end roads and offer us nothing we truly desire, would it not seem logical to simply reverse the thinking of the ego, and basically do the opposite of what it demands that we do? If we receive peace of mind, joy, understanding, forgiveness and greater compassion, by doing the opposite of what the ego demands, is the ego not, in its own way, helping us find clarity? Is now knowing what not to do, is that not, in and off itself, helpful? Does it not help you get a clearer picture of what we should do? If the ego is, in its own unique way, helping us, should we not be grateful to it? Now, if even the ego’s fear-based foundation is, in its own way, helpful, is not then everything, all our so-called challenges, difficulties and struggles, in one form or another, also helping us? If everything, once its true purpose is understood, is helpful, then has God not used even the so-called “bad” for good? If everything can in truth be used for good, should our response to every moment, everyone and to God, not be one of gratitude?
Today, if you find yourself under the ego’s spell, do not despair, for the ego itself is a self-destructive mechanism, and so the more we use its fear-based tools, such as stress, anxiousness, anger, resentment, hate and thoughts of revenge, the less appealing and helpful we will find them. The less appealing and helpful we find them, the less we will want to use them. Now, some may need to travel much deeper down the ego’s darken pit than others, in order to realize that the pain riddle experience of such a journey is not what they want. Some may have higher pain tolerance than others, but no one’s pain tolerance is without limit, and so it’s always just a matter of time and pain, that gives rise to a search for a better way. Sooner or later, we start to get diminishing returns for using the ego’s fear-based tools, when we start becoming conscious of these diminishing returns, we begin the process of ending our support for that thought system. The less we support its mindset, the less time, focus and energy, we put into it, the smaller part of our life it becomes. Today, let us make a concerted effort to put less time on the ego’s fear based mindset, and more of our time, energy and focus, on doing the opposite of what it demands that we do. Today, when the ego calls out for worry, anxiousness and stress, we reverse the ego’s demands and see them as our personal calls to focus on and develop a greater trust in God’s plan for our life. When the ego calls out for anger, resentment, hate and thoughts of revenge, we again reverse the ego’s mindset and see them as our personal calls to practice forgiveness, compassion and understanding. It will be such practices, that will help begin to awaken us, to what it is that we truly want. It will be such practices, that will help us both demolish the ego’s fear-based foundation, and begin to build a new foundation based on God’s Love.
Today, all people, places and things, are providing us the time, material, and opportunity, needed to dismantle a false fear-based foundation and in its place build up a new foundation based on Love. Now, instead of allowing fear to be the focus of our day or the reason why we cannot sleep at night, we offer gratitude to, and develop appreciation for, all people, places, things, who have volunteered to help us shift our perceptions, heal, and build this stronger and more solid foundation. Today, let us recall, that no one is ever placed before us by chance, and that we have been brought together on this path, to help each other, raise our levels of consciousness. As our level of consciousness are raised, we will naturally be drawn towards being and sharing The Light, and by doing so, darkness and all its expressions will begin to wilt away before our understanding. Now, let us begin to see, how all those people and situations that the ego had us once judge and condemn, were actually the people and situations that were teaching us that we did not need those judgments and condemnation in our lives. Imagine, a day were you start offering forgiveness and gratitude for all those people and situations that you once only held anger and resentment towards. How would such an experience, begin to shift your mental and emotional states, and thus the quality of your life? Imagine, a day were you no longer need to carry the ego’s heavy and dark memories, fears, and burdens. That day my friend has arrived, and you are now just a choice away from having a day, and thus a life, of greater understanding, compassion, gratitude, peace, love and joy. You are, as God’s creation, forever worthy of everything and everyone that the ego has kept you from. Reignite the light in you, by making the conscious decision to be aligned with God’s Love, and then offer it to all others, do so and love will become your constant companion.
Today, let us recall, that thanks to free will, we can decide, with every thought we think, what kind of foundation we will lay, that will then support and fuel, the life we experience. When you are supporting fear based thoughts, such as those of judgment and resentment, do not put yourself down for this, simply feel them, realize that these thoughts don’t align with your loving nature, forgive yourself for thinking them, forgive all others involve with them, hand all thoughts that you no longer want over to The Light, and watch them dissolve in His perfect love, peace and understanding. Let us today remind ourselves, that we have been gifted free will, and thus any time that we want to stop experiencing a world that we do not want, all we need do is realize that it is us, who through our thoughts, are supporting it, then stop supporting it, and instead start supporting the thoughts that will support the world we want. Our true light, the love that we are, no matter how dark it seems to get, is always a choice away, and that choice is ours and ours alone to make. For this understanding, let us today offer gratitude to God, and to all those who through their presence in our lives, are helping us recall, the true power that we have, to choose the life we want.
