Daily Inspiration: August 11. Forgiveness is an Act of Love and Self-Love

When you forgive a sister, you remind her that it is not her body, words or actions, that are the truth in her. Her truth is her changeless nature, her eternal light and love filled soul. The body is just a temporal communication device for the soul. If we decide to align with the temporal, we will experience what the temporal world has to offer. If we keep our focus on the eternal, then it will be the symbols of the eternal that will surround us. In every moment we have that choice, to align with the temporal or the eternal. The temporal is what the ego has programmed us to think that we are, the dust that returns to dust. The eternal in us is the representative of God, Love on Earth. We are here to represent God, Love on Earth, that is, in every moment, our function here. To properly represent the eternal we need to overlook or forgive the little judgment centered games that the ego plays within time. To represent Love we need to forgive people’s programs and instead focus only on their eternal nature. Forgiveness, as an expression of Love, opens the door from the temporal to the eternal. Today, offer your sister gratitude for the opportunity to see only the light in her, so that you may recall it as your own. The more you get to practice choosing and aligning with your eternal essence, the more fulfilled you will feel, because in essence you will be doing what you came here to do. Today, thanks to free will, know that the choice to leave the temporal and align with the eternal is just a choice away. In fact, all of Love’s expressions, are always just a simple choice away, and thus Heaven on Earth is also always within reach. This is the gift that forgiveness in every moment offers us, the chance to align with our loving nature, and thus start becoming who we came here to be.

We have all already given away enough of our lives focused on judgment, a symbol of the temporal, instead of forgiveness, a symbol of the eternal. We are now awakening to the realization of what both choices have to offer. One choice chains us to the past. The other choice sets us forever free. One choice puts us in a bad mood during the day, making us quicker to anger. The other choice brings a kind, warm and inviting, smile to our face. One choice robs us of our nightly rest, as we toss and turn thinking negative thoughts about self and others. The other choice lets us lay our heads gently on our pillows, and allows us to fall into a deep and healing sleep. As we awaken we begin to realize which choice we are truly worthy of. We, all of us, even and especially those who still are asleep to the truth in them, are Love’s children. We are thus all forever worthy of His Love and all of Love’s expressions. If God forever sees us as worthy of His Love, would it not be wise to at least make a serious attempt to follow His example? Today, let us try seeing ourselves and others, only as He sees us. His example and guidance will lead us to a place of peace, joy and understanding, in essence a Heaven on Earth. If we decline His example and align ourselves with the ego, we end up in a judgmental, angry and resentful place, basically a Hell on Earth. The choice for Heaven or Hell on Earth is made in every moment. Our choices will create the world we experience and that our children will one day inherit. Today, let us make the conscious choice to only see the eternal essence in God’s creations, and not as some temporal illusionary character within the ego’s fairy tale. Today, by allowing God to guide us, we align with the eternal in us, and see all others only as God sees us.

Today, let us practice feeling how deeply loving and self-loving it is to forgive ‘others’ and ourselves, to overlook the false and see only the truth as true. As we do so, we will once again begin to consciously merge back into the loving beings we came here to be. As we do so, we will return back to aligning with the Light that is a reflection of our true Home. Today, let us gladly shine our eternal loving essence upon all those who God brings before us. As we do so, we begin to see this loving light reflecting back from everyone and all. This way of being and interacting with our fellow brothers and sisters will bring us the peace of mind and joy that we have for so long longed for. We are worthy of all that God is. Peace of mind and joy are just two of His many loving expressions. As we, through forgiveness or overlooking the false, achieve that states of peace and joy, we will begin to understand that these states of mind have always been available to us. All we ever truly needed to do was to choose them to have them. Today, let us use every opportunity that is being presented to us, every interaction we have, to learnt to use and represent Love’s expression of forgiveness. Each forgiving step we take and choice we make brings us into a closer alignment with our true nature. Today, let us with honor, and walk hand in hand with all those who are helping us recall who in truth we are. Let us gladly help guide them, through forgiveness, to this place of perfect peace, joy and understanding. This place of perfect peace, joy and understanding, is our true Home, the Heavenly state of mind. This is a place that we have for a moment in eternity temporarily forgotten, but a place that in truth we have never left. Today, all we need do to experience and represent our Home on Earth is to be who we were created to be, and see only this truth in all others as true. 

Today, let us offer our deep and sincere gratitude to those who are offering us the opportunities to practice forgiveness. When we forgive those who the ego demands we judge, we begin putting into place the building blocks that will help us create the world we want to experience, and that one day, our children will inherit. Today, through our choice to forgive we represent the Heavenly state of mind and reject a Hell of our own making. It will be the seeds we plant today, that tomorrow become the source of sustenance for our children. God, today is entrusting us with His children. All we need do is to look upon them as He sees us. Today, all God is asking us to do in order to begin building and experiencing a Heaven on Earth, is to forgive them their trespasses, as He has forgiven ours.

A beautiful message! Reiterating the fact that we are all trying to remember our truth. I have been trying to stay with love, gratitude but the egoic mind’s messages to judge and condemn other’s words and actions were like dark clouds… your post helped me in observing them and strengthened my resolve to remember that I AM A LOVING SOUL… thus I choose to continue to love…
Thank you… how wonderful to walk with you on this planet…Love and light Satwant

Thank you Satwant for your kind words and for being a member of our community.

You could in truth only ever be the loving truth in you. Love created you and thus Love is who you are.

Anytime that judgment or condemnation come knocking on your mind’s door, don’t condemn them for their efforts to enter your kingdom. Instead, learn to use them to remind you, that what they have to offer, you no longer want or need. Remind yourself that they do not represent the truth, the love in you. Then thank judgment and condemnation for reminding you of who you are not.

Learn to use this reminder to trigger in you the desire to offer others the opposite of what the ego demands.

When the ego demands judgment, offer forgiveness instead. When the ego demands condemnation, offer compassion instead.

Know that because we are all One, that what you focus on and offer others, you strengthen and reinforce within you.

What you strengthen and reinforce within you, you become.

Today remind yourself that only the love in you is real, and that you will now only choose, reinforce, share and thus strengthen, the loving truth in you as true.

Yes, this post came to me at a time my ex husband was fighting with me! Earlier this morning I awoke with yelling & negativity! I kept trying to go back to sleep yet kept getting disturbed. I lashed back with unkind words….then just like that, your post was in front of me! God is amazing & true to his word! Thank you for the reminder that we “choose” to forgive & be at peace or not & allow our ego to hold of us & stay mad all day! Today I choose peace & love!
Thank you for sharing!

Thank you Laurie for being open to the message and for being a member of our community.

As Christ once said on the cross: “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.” If He can forgive us while dying on the cross, we can forgive others their illusions of themselves and us.

Today, when the ego demands judgment, instead forgive.

In every moment and interaction practice offering others what you yourself would like to feel and experience.

Today, when the darkness of the ego’s mindset tries to take over your mind and thinking, stop it as soon as you possibly can. Then recall who in truth you are, the Love that your Creator created you to be. Now aligned with your loving nature, offer only this Love to all those that God sends you way.

Today forgive, because you are God’s child and worthy of peace.

Today, forgive, and become a beacon of peace for others.

All glory to God.

Peace. JBC
