Daily Inspiration: December 18. Reversing the Ego’s Anger Programmed Response
Today, let us recall that God being Love and All, anger placing itself in opposition to All, can not be anything but an illusionary response, that we have been programmed by the ego to make. The ego trying to place itself in opposition to God, can not be real, thus none of its programs are real. Our beliefs in these programs, are the only thing that keep them around and active in our experience. As we make the conscious decision to no longer support our programmed response of anger, as a solution to our confusion, its power over us will begin to dissolve. If we are angry with someone, it is because we have been programmed to believe that whatever they did, is deserving of such a response. This is what the ego insists is a ‘just,’ ‘proper,’ and ‘natural’ response to the situation. But why is it that the ego’s ‘justified’, ‘proper’ and ‘natural’ response, in our moments of reflection, burdens us with the weight of guilt, shame and regret? Why is it us, that seemingly have to pay the price, by tossing and turning at night in defense of our ego’s so-called rational response? What use are the ego’s “solutions” if what they bring us is further into confusion, darkness, chaos and despair? In reality, to be right is to not to be angry, but to be happy and at peace. For joy and peace, as expressions of Love, are our natural state. Joy and peace are symbols of our alignment with the Mind of God. If you think of another, and joy and peace do not come to mind, then let that be a symbol to you, that the ego has ‘succeeded’ in separating you from the Mind of God. Yet, do not despair, for if it is you who have allowed this to occur, then it is also you who has the power to undo what you have done. Thanks to free will, we indeed do have the power to reverse the ego’s programming, its anger response, and return to our natural states, those of peace and joy.
If we are looking for a destination, in this case the states of peace and joy, yet our co-pilot, the ego, keeps giving us the wrong directions, would it be not wise to stop listening to the ego? The ego keeps insistence that anger is the way, a proper response to God’s creations. Yet, such a response, never seems to help us reach the states of peace and joy. If the ego and its response is not getting us to the states of mind that we desire to reach, why should we continue to listen to it? Let us today, when it comes to wanting to reach our desired destination, look to a Higher Source for directions. God is Love, and peace and joy are two of Its many expressions, thus if we want to align with them, let us practice aligning with their Source, and allowing their Source to lead us. Anytime you align with Love or any of its numerous expressions, this brings you to the doorways of peace and joy. Forgiveness, compassion, understanding and kindness, are just some of Love’s numerous expressions and paths, all of use in helping us reach our desired destination. Every time that we offer another, any of Love’s expressions, we get closer to reaching our destination. Just for this reason alone, let us offer our brothers and sisters gratitude, for their presence in our experience. We are all One, and so to reach our destination, we cannot do so alone. Today, when the ego once again demands judgment and anger, instead recall that its advice gets you no where you desire to be, then take brother’s or sister’s hand, and together, as One, begin to align with your true journey. Being that we are all One, all others are simply aspects of yourself. You can not leave aspects of yourself back in the state of anger, and still fully experience and reach, the states of peace and joy.
Today, let us not wait for peace or joy to come to us. Instead, let us have the courage to take the first step, and if need be also the second and third step, to help us reach our destination. Many times when we take the first step, then the ego demands that the other person take the next step, but then that leaves the power to achieve the states of peace and joy up to others. Let us no longer listen to advice that does not help us in reaching our destination. Now, the states of peace and joy are up to us and us alone to choose, reach for and achieve. Now, with the understanding that the ego’s “anger solution” only brings us confusion and despair, we consciously do the opposite of what the ego would have us do. We align with Love, choose to forgive our sisters’ and brothers’ trespasses, just as we would want ours to be forgiven. Instead of following the ego’s tired and ineffective demands to judge, curse and negatively think of others, we go within, and wholeheartedly, every single time we think of them, we forgive. Yet, let us not only forgive them, but also let us send them a blessing, and pray for their health, happiness, healing and peace of mind. The ego will try to convince you that this will be hard to do. But ask yourself, isn’t what the ego demands, the pain and confusion that you, by your choices are carrying, not a heavier and harder burden to log around? Today, awakened, we no longer choose a dead-end road, the ego’s programs are no longer our reality. Now, anger simply becomes a signal to us, that it is time to drop our programs, align with Love, and forgive. As we do so, peace of mind and joy result.
Today, when the ego once again demands anger, let us no longer allow the blind to lead the blind. We have already traveled the ego’s path through judgment, anger, resentment, regret, guilt and shame. We already know that this is a path that we no longer want to experience. Now awaken, let us instead hear and understand anger, as a call from the Universe, asking us to consciously choose to align with our Loving Source, and offer Its expression of forgiveness, in order to help us once again return to a place of peace and joy. As Love’s creations, peace and joy are our birthright, they are, being Love’s expressions, our brother and sister, our family. Today, let us consciously align with our Family, with all of Love’s expressions, in order to once again feel at One with all, and thus worthy of our All-Loving Source. Let us also be sure to thank, those whose physical presence, are helping us practice recalling, that we indeed have the power to choose forgiveness over anger, and thus peace over pain.
