We protect and defend ourselves against the ego’s tools and mindset when we think of them as real. They try to set themselves up to be in opposition to God, but because God is Love and All, they are nothing, not real nor true. Nothing that tries to set itself in opposition to God, represents the truth in us. When we feel threatened by the ego’s tools and mindset, we reinforce and strengthen them by interacting with them as real. It is we who give the ego and its tools their power. The ego and its tools have no power by themselves. Only when we think of the illusion as real do we try to defend ourselves against it. We lift up our sword of judgment in defense, all in an effort to strike back at shadows that seem to taunt us in our dreams. What those who are asleep to the truth in them do not realize is that it is they who are dreaming of the dream as real, and that if they were to awaken, that dream and all its monsters would be gone. Every defense against these shadows, reinforces and strengthened them, and weakens us. Those dreaming think they become “better” at fighting back and defending against the shadows, still they don’t seem to understand why their internal conflict, confusion and chaos, keeps going and growing. We will never awaken as long as we keep insisting on fighting the shadows in our dreams. Fighting the shadows in your dreams does not make you brave, strong or resilient, it simply shows that you are dreaming. The only real way to end this fight is to stop dreaming and awaken. Anytime you are buying into the beliefs that you or anyone else are something other than Love, you are dreaming. Are you not tired of fighting the shadows in your dreams? Today, awaken by reminding yourself: “Only the Love in me is true. We are all One, thus only the Love in all of us is real and true.”
We think that our sword offers safety, but how many times have our so-called “defenses” ever protected us and brought us true victory? True victory would be consciously aligning with your loving nature and thus becoming who you came here to be. Your truth, your loving nature, does not need to defend itself against illusions. All of the ego’s tools, regardless of the different values we place on them, are illusionary in nature. When you realize that you need not defend yourself against illusions your need to judge self or others ends. Only the truth in all of us is true. Thus, when you are focus on the truth in self and others, love is all you need do. Love does not attack because there is no such thing as judgment or attack within the energy of Love. If you feel under attack, it is not the truth in you or others that is attacking. It is simply a symbol that you are dreaming of the dream as real. The truth in you or others would never attack, judge nor condemn. If you feel under attack it is because you are allowing the false or ego-self to think, act and react for you. In essence, you are allowing the ego to live your life for you. The ego, being in opposition to All, to God, is nothing. Why would you ever give your power away to, feel judged by, or need defend against or be afraid of, nothing? Today, waste no more of your time defending yourself against nothing. Do not judge yourself as less than, bad or not spiritual enough, for buying into your untruth as true. We have all, in one form or another, walked these same steps along that path. Instead, learn to catch yourself when you are dreaming, when you are being something other than loving, then stop this line of thinking, awaken, align with the truth in you, and share with others who in truth you are.
Today, let us make a concerted effort to practice aligning with, and thus supporting and reinforcing, only the truth in us as true. The more we support our eternal all loving nature as true, the less use we will have for the sword of judgment. The more we choose to support only our truth as true, the less others’ illusions of us will bother us. The less others’ illusionary thinking bothers us, the less need we will have for defense. The less need we have to defend ourselves, the more peace of mind and joy we will experience. The more we experience a peaceful and joyful world, the more grateful to God and to all our brothers and sisters we will be. A circle of gratitude, peace, joy, love, forgiveness and compassion, will then begin to grow and expand around us. We will shine brighter and brighter each day, everyday bringing into our circle more people, situations, places and things. Every time we choose to support only our truth as true, this circle will expand. As it expands, those around us will find true comfort, safety and security, in our presence. It will be this comfort, safety and security that will provide them the time, and judgmental free space they need, to start recalling the truth in them. They will start to follow your example and share this truth with others, and expanding their own circles of gratitude, peace, joy, love, forgiveness and compassion. Today, if you perceive anyone as judging you, remember that all they are in truth doing is asking to be included in your circle. Today, offer them through your loving example the help and healing they seek. Do so and see and feel your circle expand and grow. As your circle expands and grows, so too will your sense of fulfillment, because in essence you will be doing what you were created to do.
Today, let us focus on and thus support and reinforce only our loving nature as true. The more we support it as true, the more a circle of peace, love and understanding will grow and expand around us. We grow our circle by forgiving instead of judging, showing compassion instead of condemnation, and trying to heal instead of hurt. Every person we are presented today is offering us this opportunity, to expand our circle. Allow no one to be excluded from your circle today. The essence of this loving circle is what you have come here into this world to be, represent, share and remind others of. All we need do today is be who we were created to be. This will in essence be an effortless accomplishment, for in truth there is never anything easier than being who you already are.
