The physical world is here as a gift to us. Here to physically reflect where we are within our hearts and minds. If you see another person with anything other than love, such as through anger, jealousy or resentment, do not judge or put yourself down, as the ego would have you do, instead ask yourself these questions:
1 – Who is the one thinking these thoughts?
2 – Who is the one who ends up holding unto and carrying the emotional result of these thoughts?
3 – What is the ‘act’ of carrying these types of thoughts and emotions around day and night doing to me?
4 – Are feeling these emotions, this anger, jealousy and resentment, really worth more to me than my peace of mind and joy?
5 – Are anger, jealousy and resentment, a real part of me, or do they “feel” like I’m carrying around something that does not belong to or in me?
6 – Why should I continue to carry burdens that don’t belong to me?”
7 – Why should I continue to punish myself through my own thoughts?
8 – Is there not another way I can look at this that aligns me with peace and joy?
9 – Do I think of myself as unworthy of being at peace and joyous?
10 – Can I, by making now the conscious choice to forgive instead of judge, not begin to return to a peaceful and joyful state?
11 – If I can, through forgiveness, return myself to the states of peace and joy, why don’t I just forgive myself and others more often and more quickly?
12 – Have I not yet realize that if I don’t forgive, it is I who suffers?
13 – Why am I choosing to suffer so much?
14 – When will I look into the mirror and say “enough is enough.”
15 – Peace and joy are both expressions of Love, and Love is my Father. I am not forever worthy of my Father’s inheritance?
Let us today start to make a conscious and concerted effort to let go and release thoughts and emotions, that we are carrying of others and ourselves, that no longer serve our growth, healing, nor are in alignment with the Love that is our true nature. One of the main tools that God has offered to us, to help release us from thoughts and emotions that we no longer desire to carry, is forgiveness. Sure, the ego may have programmed you to say to yourself: “There is no way I can or will forgive person x or y or even forgive myself,” but today honestly ask yourself: “What kind of return on my investment in judgment of self and others, on anger, jealousy and resentment has the ego’s mindset ever offered me?” “How much more time, focus and energy, must I keep investing in the ego’s false concepts, direction, and driving into its dark endless pit, before I see that peace of mind and joy or not there?” The ego’s mindset will never bring you true peace of mind and joy. Sure, maybe for a moment, a temporal sense of peace or joy may be felt as your thoughts and emotions get projected onto others, but in the end remember this: your thoughts and emotions may be projected unto others, but they also never leave their source, and their source is always you. But thankfully, we have come to a place in our own self-awareness, that we are starting to see, how much real control we have over the thoughts we think, and thus over our emotions and lives. And so today, let us start using forgiveness, the tool that God has given us, to start taking back control of our own thoughts, emotions and lives. Forgiveness as an expression of Love, of God, is, after the ego’s programs are let go, who in truth you are, and therefore no matter how hard forgiveness seems to be, remember that there is nothing truly easier, than being who in truth you are.
Today, in order to receive the opposite of what the ego’s mindset has burden us with, we will do the opposite of what it demands. Instead of judging ourselves and others, we will take that opportunity to offer forgiveness and gratitude to all who the ego demands we condemn. We offer forgiveness, because we know that if judgment imprisons us within our own heart and minds, then its opposite, forgiveness must be the key that sets us free. If we still can’t offer forgiveness to ourselves or others, then we will hand over all our hurt, suffering and pain, to God. Yes, every single time the ego demands judgment of self or others, we will simply stop, feel ourselves handing over all our hurt, sorrow and pain, to God, and visualize and feel such emotions lifting from us and dissolving before His light, love and understanding. Then instead of carrying these judgments, anger, jealousy or resentment, within us, we will offer gratitude to God, for lifting our burdens. Let us also thank our brothers and sisters for volunteering to help us better see and understand that our investment in the ego’s mindset is simply not worth it. Today, every single time that the ego demands we sacrifice our lives to judgments, anger, jealousy or resentment, we instead make the conscious decision to forgive, and if we do not feel strong enough to do so, we feel and visualize handing over all our pain to The Light, to Love, to God, and allow Him forgive for us. We may need practice doing this dozens, hundreds or thousands of times, but the more we do so, the more we will understand the totality and wisdom of God’s mercy. It will be by allowing Him to lead us, and by us doing His will, that true everlasting peace of mind, joy and understanding, will be experienced and shared.
Today, let us recognize, that the physical world is here as a gift to us, so that we may project unto it, the false concepts that remains hidden within our hearts and minds. Let us use such opportunities, to help us better see and understand, what is separating us, from the Love that is our true nature. Love is who we are, came here to be and represent. The physical world is here to show us when we are in or out of alignment, with our loving nature. The more quickly we can recognize when we are out of alignment with love, the less time we have to sacrifice defending the ego’s judgment based mindset. The less we defend the ego’s mindset, the quicker its false concepts begin to dissolve from our lives. A doorway that get us from the ego’s judgment based mindset to the state of peace, is forgiveness. Today, when the ego demands judgment, let us instead offer forgiveness, over and over again, until we begin to recognize, the wisdom of this path. If we do not feel strong enough to forgive, then we ask God to forgive for us, and feel the peace that looking at this world through God’s eyes, offers us.
