No matter what dark, tumultuous tunnels the ego tries to have you travel through, as God’s creation, you have a natural pull toward the light — toward a more balanced, peaceful, forgiving, joyous and loving life. Every day, unconscious of it as you may be, you and God have co-designed the journey you are now on. You and God have co-designed an individualized growth workshop to help you heal and awaken. For example, if you have bought into the ego’s darkness and are supporting its tool of judgment, then you will bring someone into your experience who will help you work through that delusion. What or who you bring into your daily experience is all a part of your personalized spiritual growth workshop. It is designed with your specific growth, healing and awakening process in mind. Even paid ‘spiritual’ workshops will never deliver the personalized offering of the ones that you, on a daily basis, design for yourself. Understanding this, pat yourself on the back, return to the present moment, and see what darkness you are offering yourself in order to process it, release it, and thus convert that moment back into light. For example, judgment is a symbol of the darkness, forgiveness is a symbol of the light. You might need to experience anger, a symbol of the darkness over and over again until you realize that this is not you nor what you want. In the now, look to how you can align your experience with Love, with the light in you, with your true essence and nature. By doing so, you become the light of the world, and thus fulfilled your function here on Earth. The more time you spend aligned with your loving nature, the more you will see and understand that this is indeed the truth in you and where you belong. Understanding that we are all One, this will also help you recall that each person’s journey, that he or she has co-designed with God, has a higher purpose. If you judge them and their journey, you are in essence judging God as wrong. This judgmental way of thinking produces guilt and reduces your peace of mind and joy. Trusting in God’s plan more, will reduce your judgments, which will in turn will reduce your frustration, anger and sense of separation from others, and increase your peace of mind, joy and sense of being One with us and our All-Loving Source.
Being all One, if you believe that not everyone is worth forgiving, then deep down inside you will reinforce within the false concept that you yourself are not worthy of being forgiven. Not feeling worthy of being forgiven, you will feel under constant attack from yourself and “others.” Living in such a state of mind creates a level of defensiveness and a lack of balance, peace of mind and joy, in your life. You do not belong in an unbalance state, joyless and without peace. That is why when your soul feels that you are out of alignment with your true nature, it will call out to the Universe for help and healing. The Universe being an expression and reflection of God’s Love, will always answer your soul’s call. The Universe in partnership with your soul, will then bring into your experience, people and situations that will help bring you back to a state of balance, where peace and joy reside. In fact, when awaken you will see, that the present moment is a personalized gift from God to you. Every single person that walks into your life, every single experience, is in one form or another, helping you become a more balanced, peaceful and joyful, human being. At the time you may not recognize this, but in time you will. You have, consciously or not, brought each person you meet and interact with into your workshop. You, your soul brought them in, and they themselves volunteered to help you heal. That is the reason why gratitude is always the appropriate response to those who have accepted your invitation to participate in your workshop. They are, in their own unique ways, helping you see that the ego’s mindset has in truth nothing of value to offer to you. But remember, that it was only because you have on numerous occasions experience the darkness, the ego’s mindset, that you are now declining it and searching for the light.
Today, let us recall that the individualized workshop that you and God have designed together has not been created as a punishment, but as a gift that acknowledges your courage and openness to grow. God, being Perfect Love, would never offer you anything that you could not handle. Each workshop you take is here to help you develop into who you came here to be. Your function is to, in your own unique way, become and share the light. Balance, peace and joy are all symbols of one who is in alignment with the truth, the light in them. Your past and those in it have help you become who you are today. Offer it and them your gratitude for this, not your judgment. When you awaken you will see the useful nature of your past. By doin so you will come to peace with it, and with all those who were a part of it. Your past is simply a large number of continuous workshops that you have co-designed with God to help you fulfill your function here on Earth. Understanding this, let us offer our past and present our gratitude. What else but gratitude could you feel towards those beings who volunteered to participated in your awakening process? These were and are the people, who the ego on numerous occasions has demanded that you to judge, become angry with, and condemn. Yet, they were and are also the people who actually heard your call for help and healing. They were and are actually the people who answered that call. Many of them clearly understood they were going into an environment where they would be judged and condemn by you. Yet still, they said yes to you. Today, remember this and look upon those from your past, and in your life now, with gratitude. Understand that out of seven plus billion people on this planet, these are the ones who have truly answered your call.
Today, remember that each situation and relationship you experience is part of a sacred and individualized workshop that you have co-designed with God. God, being Perfect, only creates perfectly. Whenever you doubt yourself or your workshop, simply remind yourself that you have co-designed it with God. Everyone in your workshop heard your soul’s call for help and healing, and courageously answered your call. These are the people who are in your life now. Offer them your gratitude, not your judgment. In essence, they are a gift from God to you, and you are a gift from God to them. The sooner you realize this, the sooner you will have gratitude, peace of mind, joy, compassion, harmony, forgiveness and understanding as your companions.
