Daily Inspiration: December 16. Punish Yourself No Longer for Being Human
Judge yourself no longer for having and expressing “negative” emotions; judge yourself no longer for being human. Negative emotions are simply part of the human growth, healing and awakening experience, and thus to deny them, is to deny and not be respectful of parts of yourself. When you are not being respectful of your whole self, because we are all One, you are not being respectful of God and of the sacred journey that you have co-created with Him. We will never find true peace of mind and joy as long as we do not learn to respect our whole self, and where each and every part of the whole self is in recognizing its divinity. You cannot live an abundant, fulfilled and joyful life, when you are constantly denying or not respecting parts of yourself. We have been taught by the ego to judge ourselves as bad, not worthy or spiritual enough, for having had or expressed negative emotions. But what true everlasting peace of mind or joy has following the ego’s teachings ever brought to us? Is it not time to stop punishing ourselves for simply being human? All we need ever remember is this: God uses all, even and especially our most difficult times, for good, and thus even our negative emotions will serve a greater good and a higher purpose, and that is why we have brought them into our experience, to overcome our illusionary thinking, and become an example to others that they too can overcome. When we learn to respect our whole experience, we learn to respect our whole self. It is then that our need for judging self and others, will begin to dissolve. It is actually your negative judgments, by experiencing them over and over again, that are teaching you that they are offering you nothing you truly want or need. Thus, today let us offer our so-called negative feelings and emotions gratitude, and by doing so, acknowledging them as equally important steps on our sacred path.
Imagine if, that what you have been programmed by the ego to believe are some of the so-called worst aspects of you or your experience, are simply here to help you heal and awaken to your true nature. Imagine, the great blessings that your own healing and awakening will one day offer all those who still hurt because they are asleep to who in truth they are. If you can begin to realize the blessing and usefulness that even these so-called negative emotions, unaware parts of you, can offer you and this world, will you not be able to see all the so-called un-awaken parts of you in this same manner. If you can begin to awaken to the fact that each and every part of you, no matter how negative the ego might have programmed you to define them as, is really here to help you grow, heal and awaken, but not only you, but also others through you, would you not begin to see the blessing that your whole self and experience, is providing us? Would this knowledge and understanding not bring clarity to your mind, peace to your heart, and gratitude to your soul? Imagine, if you could begin to shift your perception so that when you experience negative emotions, instead of putting yourself or others down for them, you simply understood them as steps along your perfect and sacred path, would a sense of clarity, peace, gratitude and purpose not begin to fill more of your time here on Earth? Would you not begin to experience a kind of Heaven on Earth, if you started to truly see and understand the blessing that each and every step along the path that you have co-created with God truly is? My dear friend, God uses all for good, remember and trust this, and receive the peace of mind and joy that as His creations, is yours to forever have, experience, share and enjoy.
Today, let us not judge or invalidate our negative feelings or emotions; instead let us see them as our own internal compass, a guidance system that is showing us where we are supporting the ego’s illusionary programming as more real than the understanding of the sacred path that we have co-created with God. Today, let us not run away or try to hide from our negative feelings or emotions, for as we begin to awaken, we will no longer need to hide from the monsters in our dreams. Today, let us look at our negative feelings and emotions through God’s eyes, with wisdom, mercy and grace, and instead of judging them and ourselves, let us thank them for playing an important part in our awakening process. What a gift it truly is to be able to consciously let go of our belief and support of the ego’s mindset, and of our unconscious lack of trust in an all-loving God. Let us make today the conscious choice to no longer punish ourselves with our own thoughts. Today, let us be grateful that our negative thoughts are coming out of the dark illusionary crevasse within our minds, and into emotional and physical forms, through our words and actions, so that we may see them for what they truly are, not real, not us. Now what was once a hidden virus that kept us feeling sick and separated from our brothers, sisters, and God, has now surface, and in the light it can now be dealt with, understood, forgiven, healed and released. This is the gift that we are offering ourselves, because we now have the courage to feel and look at every part of us and our journey, with love, mercy and grace. Our negative feelings and emotions, now met with our greater self-awareness and acceptance of our whole self, will begin to dissolve before our light and understanding. As the idea of negativity begins to dissolve from our minds and dreams, we will begin to awaken, and as we awaken, we will start to see and understand the gift that every one of our experiences had and has to offer us and the world.
Today, anytime that you find yourself beginning to judge yourself as less than, bad, negative, or not spiritual enough, first make the conscious choice to remember that you have control over your thoughts, and that your thoughts should not be controlling you. Second, remember where the ego’s mindset has taken you a thousand times before, no where that you desire to go. Third, remind yourself that every single step of your journey, is a sacred co-creation with God, and because of this, everything that we are experiencing, always serves a higher purpose. Fourth, remind yourself that each one of our steps along our sacred path will be use by God, in one way or another, for good, for our growth, healing and awakening. Fifth, practice taking and trusting the first four steps until a sense of trust, peace and gratitude begin to rein over you and your day.
