Daily Inspiration: August 12. You Need Not Defend Yourself Against Illusions

God is Love and All. Thus we are what God is. Yet, in this world of duality, the ego has programmed us to believe that there can be an opposite to All. It is our belief that the opposite of All is possible that makes us feel like our delusional thinking is real. Nothing apart from the Love in you can be possible, real or true. Any thought, word, emotion or action that you think or take, that seems to be in opposition to Love, to your loving nature, is not a real part of you. You may have been programmed to judge, be angry, anxious or hate. Still, no matter how much you buy into them, none of these energies and emotions represent the truth in you. Today, rejoice in knowing that the more you use them, the more you will see, feel and realize, how unlike they are to the truth in you. It is only when you are viewing this world through the ego’s mindset that the opposite of Love’s expressions can seem to be real. In reality, Love’s expressions, such as those of compassion, peace, joy and hope, have no opposite. Only when we believe in the ego’s fairy tale as true, can the opposite to Love, God, All, seem real. Once we awaken and close the book on the ego’s fairy tale, we will no longer have a need for anything that places itself in opposition to our loving nature. Today, practice no longer supporting the false as true. You do so by ending the time, focus and energy that you invest in them. Awakened beings do not need to defend themselves against false concepts or characters within the ego’s dream. Today, let us stop wasting our time fighting the shadows in our dreams. Let us instead practice not sinking further into the darkness when these shadows come into our presence. Instead, let us use the signs of this darkness and unawareness to trigger in us the desire to awaken from a dream that we no longer need or want.

We have all played with the ego’s false concepts long enough to realize that they only block our awareness to the loving light within. These blocks or false concepts are supported by the ego as real in order to keep its mindset and way of life. In every moment, regardless of what we may be dreaming, it is only we who can slay the dragons in our dreams. In this world of seeming duality, we all have our own individual dragons or demons to slay. This is in part why we are here, to better understand this world’s delusional nature, work through it, overcome it, and share our victory and knowledge with others. Once we overcome or awaken from our dream, less time, focus and energy will go toward the energy of fear, and more will go into becoming a beacon of peace. The more we focus on the truth within, the less these dragons will be able to control us. The less time, focus and energy we give to our dragons, the quicker they begin to starve and die off. Today, let us recall that in every moment, we can either feed or starve our dragons. In every moment, we can allow them to take a greater or lesser role in our life. In every moment, it is only we who can power them. Feed the dragons and darkness within you no longer. Recall that you are the son or daughter of the Light. Begin to notice that when we align with the light within, that the darkness dissipates. Darkness can not be where light shines bright. The more we practice aligning with the light, the less symbols of the darkness we will attract, encounter, experience, represent and share.

Today, let us recall that we need not defend the truth in us. We need not do so, not because it is not worth defending, but because there is truly nothing to defend against. The truth in us is Love and Love being All has no need to defend Itself against nothing. The truth in others will never attack you. Their truth being Love can only Love you. Only what is false in another, the dream they believe about themselves and you, can seem to attack. Today, if they seems to be, through thought, word or action, attacking you, remember that nothing can affect you, unless of course you believe that nothing to be something. Today, understand that when attacked, they are simply reacting to the monsters in their dreams. Let us no longer defend ourselves against those who are dreaming, for that would only seem to make their dreams real and true. Today, do not despair if you find yourself buying into the dream as real. Simply recognize that thoughts of judgment, anger, resentment or revenge, are all but symbols of a mind that is dreaming, and thus asleep to its true nature. Forgive the dreamer. Then return to the state of peace, and become a beacon of peace for others. Remind yourself today, that the eternal does not need to defend itself against the silly little games that the ego plays within temporal concept of time. Remind yourself that the eternal and indestructible in you does not need to defense itself against some imaginary pebbles that are thrown its way? Does the sun need defend itself against the clouds that attempt to block its light? Do not give reality to illusion. Do not become a witness to the shadows in your dreams. Do not give the powerless a power they can not have. No longer buy into the lies about you as true.

Today, let us recall and reinforce the truth in us by doing these six things: First, that being Love’s creation, only the Love in us is true. Second, that being all One, what is true in one of us, is true in all of us. Third, that Love only loves. When we aligned with the truth in us, we offer love and only love to self or others.  Fourth, let us recognize when we are asleep or awake, dreaming or expressing our true nature, aligned with the Light or the darkness. Those aligned with Love, are awake to who in truth they are. Those align with the darkness, are simply asleep and dreaming. Fifth, that those who, through thought, word or emotion, attack us, are simply dreaming. Sixth, let us practice overlooking or forgiving their dreams of us. In doing so we align with our true nature, return to the state of peace, and become a beacon of peace and understanding for others.

Thank you Donna for being open to the message.

You have not done a piece on overcoming blame.

Nancy, in my writings, just substitute your word ‘blame’ for my word ‘judgment’ and you’ll get a good idea of what road to follow.

Peace. JBC
