The unforgiving mind is asleep to its true nature. Having been programmed by the ego to see the false as true, the unforgiving mind feels lost, wounded, broken and burdened by the weight of its own judgments. Unconsciously valuing chaos more than peace, it wallows, stewing in the turmoil of its fictional world. Sad and without hope, it perilously peers into the deep darkness just waiting to be attacked. Confused, angry and afraid, it believes its two choices are to either strike or be victimized. Never dropping judgment’s sword, its body tires, feels stressed and weakens. Yet, no matter how the unforgiving mind acts, what it secretly desires most is to find rest. Its true desire is to put down the sword and finally experience the peace that, deep down inside, it knows it deserves. This is why today you have been placed on its path. You are where you are, to offer hope to the hopeless, rest to the weary, and peace to those who know only of the pain of the sword. You have been placed on the path of the unforgiving mind to help it see that there is indeed another way, a better way, a way that can lead it from sleep to awakening and from judgment to joy. You are here to show it that there is indeed a way from confusion to clarity, chaos to calm, and from pain to ever lasting peace. Today, when an unforgiving mind crosses your pass, promise yourself not to join it by judging those that judge you. Today, choose to see only the loving eternal nature in your brother and sister. Be a light within the darkness, a spring in a deserted world that has been dried out by its beliefs in isolation, separation, anger, resentment, revenge and regret. Today, bring peace and understanding to those who have been led astray by the ego’s lies. Today, when the unforgiving mind confronts you, simply and gently smile. Smile, because you understand that God would not have placed you where you are unless He knew that you would show compassion, forgiveness and love to His lost child.
We have all walked the path of the unforgiving mind. We have all fought within the emotionally blood thirsty battles of the ego’s judgment-filled wars. We have all been wounded time after time because we had put our faith in a fictional tale that has never had our best interest in mind. We all carry within us the memory of carnage, left behind by those trained to see the dark and false as real and true. All the unforgiving mind does is strike at the shadows in its dreams and then in fear wonders why they don’t die off and disappear. The unforgiving mind does not know that it resides within the dream state, blindfolded to its loving nature and light. The ego’s judgment centered monsters will always appear to be real within the dream of the unforgiving mind. Today, choose to no longer defend yourself or fight against the shadows in your dreams. Spend no more of your time, focus and energy, on the shadows in your dreams and watch them begin to dissolve as you awaken. How much longer will we allow the unforgiving mind, the unenlightened mind, to try to lead us through the darkness? How many more of its battles must we fight in order to finally feel safe, secure and at peace? How many more wounded victims must it leave behind on its war path before we finally cry out for mercy, help, healing, freedom and peace? Are you not tired of the constant battles? How much longer will you support the unforgiving mind’s soldiers of anger, resentment, hate, revenge and regret? How much more of its suffering, pain, confusion, darkness and chaos, will you continue to allow into your life and into the lives of those around you? When will enough finally be enough?
Today, let us return to the light, accept the path of peace, and thus bring clarity and healing to the unforgiving mind. To do so, consciously choose to lay down your sword of judgment and enter the battlefield with your arms wide open and your head held high. You enter the battlefield with the certainty that only the love of God in all of us is real. You enter the field knowing that the ego’s illusions are not real, its nightmares are but dreams, and its darkness is but a lack of light. You understand that your eternal essence can never be struck down by the ego’s fictional sword of judgment. Your eternal essence is an expression and extension of the Love that God is, and the Love of God is All. The opposite of All is nothing. Thus nothing, no matter how many ways the unforgiving mind tries to disguise it, can’t never hurt, confuse or darken, the love that is your eternal essence and nature. With this understanding and mindset, you are raised above and beyond the ego’s battlefield. Above the battlefield, you will look upon all those still buying into their fear based dreams as real. Above the battlefield, you will no longer have the need to judge those that are unaware and asleep to their true nature. Just as you watch and admire the beauty of your child while he or she sleeps, so to will you view all your brothers and sisters in this same perfect light. As they dream they will toss and turn, defend and fight, unaware of their true nature. Feeling lost, confused and afraid while they dream, now gently and lovingly place your hand upon their head, caress their scalp, move your fingers through their hair, and softly whisper to them that time to awaken has come.
Today, let us help the unforgiving mind awaken from its judgment and fear based dreams. Think of a person or situation that you have yet to forgive. Then ask yourself, that part of you that is awake, does it want to be right or happy, to remain in pain or experience peace? Do you desire to enjoy the light of a brand new day or to remain imprison within its past programs? Do you want to be free from your judgments, or continue to toss and turn at night? Has the unforgiving mind not made you suffer long enough? When will you decide that enough is enough? How many more internal battles must you fight in order to realize the unforgiving mind has nothing of value to offer? Forgive, and awaken from your nightmares. Forgive, and finally experience true rest and lasting peace.
