Daily Inspiration: August 22. Experiencing the Gift of the Present Moment
Imagine, from now on, making the conscious choice to see every moment, as a gift of growth that you are being presented with. What emotion other than gratitude would you express, if you understood, that what you are experiencing within the present moment is a gift, here to help you rise to a higher level of consciousness? And what feeling, other than peace, could come to you, if you but fully trusted that there is One, who is always within and with you, who fully loves and protects you, and has since your creation promised, that all will be alright? Today, let us make the conscious choice to trust the present moment, to trust in God’s eternal gift, over our ego’s propensity to become anxious, stress out and worry. Today, let us make the conscious choice to accept God’s gifts of growth, gratitude, peace, trust and joy, and we do this by simply putting our judgments, frustration, anxiousness and worries aside, and allowing the present moment to be what it is. This is all that is asked of us, to have the peace that in truth we want, to allow the present moment simply to be what it is. Imagine, no longer being unconsciously forced by the ego to try to control or direct what is going on. Imagine, no longer needing to carry the weight of judgement on your shoulders, simply because you finally decided to trust the One, with whatever burdens the ego would have you carry. No longer carry what is not yours to carry. Today, simply recall, that the cross has already been overcome. The battle has already been fought and won. Now, your Creator only desires you to have peace and joy, consciously aligning with your loving nature, and sharing it with others. Your Creator is Love, and you are here to create through Love, and so align with the expressions of Love that the present moment is inviting you to express, and share with others, who you were created to be.
How much longer must we choose to remain stuck in the past, or worry about the future, when the peace that is forever offered to us within the present moment, is available to us right now? How much longer must we drag the heavy burdensome chains of our past judgments into the present, laying these chains upon the present, and then complaining as to why we can’t truly see nor fully understand, what is really going on? What if there was one simple tool that allowed us to let go of the past and release the future? Forgiveness is the tool, that helps us let go of the past and release the future, and thus be able to align with and fully experience the true gift, the present moment, where the Love of God forever resides. Anytime time that you feel stuck in the past or worried about the future, there is a good chance that you are holding unto unforgiving thoughts. Forgive, release your brothers and sisters, and free yourself. When you forgive, what you are really saying is, that you are choosing to value and trust God’s plan for your life over that of the ego’s plan. You are choosing to remember that each one of us has co-created a sacred journey with God, and thus each person’s journey is uniquely fitted and designed for them. When other people’s journeys are understood in this manner, your need or desire to judge their journeys begins to dissolve, and in doing so, you free yourself from having to carry judgment’s burdens. Through such an act, the chains of the past are broken, lifted of you and set aside. The present moment can now be fully appreciated and clearly viewed in its mighty splendor, and the future is now set free to become whatever it is that it will be.
Today, let us together remember, that only the present moment truly exists. Within the now, we really only have two choices, to trust God or to worry. If God, Love Himself, is forever within the present moment, and only the present moment is real, then what use would you have to ever worry, when you recall that Love forever has your back? If you would consciously align yourself with the present moment, with God, with Love, and you understood that every step on your journey is a sacred co-creation with your Source, what need would you ever again have to stress out or to become concerned? What would happen to you and to your life, if you fully trusted the Creator of the Universe, with your life? Trusting that God being Love, only has your best interest in mind, and that the present moment is the gift, that He is forever offering you. Would such a day not be free from anxiousness, stress or worry? Would your peace of mind and joy not grow tremendously on such a day? What do you truly have to lose, by experimenting with the idea that no matter how the ego has programmed you to view your experience, you made your one and only goal today, to trust God completely and wholeheartedly. Today, you will know when you are fully trusting in God, because the state of peace will result. Equally so, let the lack of peace, be a reminder to you, that you are not truly within the present moment, and thus not fully trusting in God. When you lack peace, do not despair, simply realize that your mind has temporarily distracted you from your goal, and so use free will, to once again have you focus on, aligning with your goal.
Today, imagine, how would your life would begin to change, if you but simply made this one choice within the present moment, to fully trust God and by doing so experience His gift of peace. All you need do to receive and experience it within the now, is to trust in God’s plan over that of our ego’s plan, in Love over fear, and by doing so realize that He has our best interest in mind and that all will be alright. Free will, forever offers us this opportunity, to choose to trust in God instead of our worries. Let us recall that our worrying, is not truly a function of what is occurring in the outer world, it is a function and symbol of, our lack of trust in God, and in God’s plan. Make the conscious choice to fully trust God with your life, and you will be at peace in each and every moment and where ever you go. Make the conscious choice to trust God partially, then sometimes you will worry and sometimes you won’t. Make the conscious choice to trust in the ego’s plan for your life over God’s plan, and worry, will become a constant companion. The choice, is in every moment, yours and yours alone to make.
