Despair no longer, for even our darkest nightmares end with us awakening from them. As invested as we may be in our pain and struggle, the only power that these aspects of our experience hold over us is the power that we give to them. Give them no power. Give them no more of your time, focus and energy, and behold their power over you begin to dissolve. If we give them our time, focus and energy, then yes, that will give them a greater seeming hold over us, and thus give them a greater power over us. Yet, no matter how much power they seem to hold over our experience, once we see them as simple manifestations of our false beliefs, it is then that we will begin to awaken to what they truly are, illusions, nothing, not real, not us. Today, if we hold a belief about others or ourselves that is hurting us, let us remember that a belief, is just an idea that has been thought over again and again, so much so, that it no longer takes an effort to think that thought. Only the thought, the Love of God is truly real, thus any belief that is hurting you is not in truth real, it is simply a nightmare that because you are so invested in it, you temporarily see and experience it as real. Yet again, do not despair, for all nightmares just like all illusions, being from the world of time, have a time limit. You will awaken from them, and when you do, you will breathe a sigh of relief realizing that they are not real. If you can take a moment to look back at your past and see how you have always awaken from your nightmares, then you can begin to feel at peace knowing that you will also awaken from any present or future nightmares. Nightmares, being in opposition to the Love of God, are not, have never been, nor will ever be, true. Recall this, align with The Light within, awaken and be at peace.
Have we all not slept long enough? When you choose to awaken, you will no longer have an interest in judging yourself or those who sleep. All the childish little judgmental centered games that the ego has programmed us to use during the day, just so that we may fuel its illusionary nightmares at night, when we awaken, we will need them no longer, put them away and use no more. Is it not interesting that regardless of the hundreds of different looking nightmares that we through our life have experience, once we awaken, they are all gone? Can you not see that once you make the conscious decision to trust in God’s plan over your ego’s plan, that when you choose love over fear, forgiveness over judgment, and peace over punishment, that the ego’s fuel source will be cut off. Cut off from you, it will wither away and die off before your greater self-awareness and understanding. The more time you dedicate to being and share your loving self, the less time you will have for the ego’s nightmares. Today, remember this: The ego and all its nightmares are not real, you are. Your truth is that you are your Father’s, Love’s creation. You are here to create as He created, through Love. Today, let us make kindness, hope, forgiveness, compassion, joy and peace, our loving creation tools. The more we work through the loving truth in us, the less we will need the ego’s fantasies and false concepts. The Love of God is All, and thus nightmares and the thoughts that fuel them, being in opposition to Love, must not be real. Remember this anytime that you find yourself lost in the ego’s nightmares. They are not real, and thus the only power they could ever hold over us, is the power that we give to them.
Today, let us not make feelings, facts. You believe the nightmare is real, because you keep supporting its “reality,” not because the nightmare is truly real. As you start awakening from it and stop supporting its reality, it will begin to dissolve away. We will awaken from all nightmares of anger, sorrow, fear, resentment, hate and regret. Once forgiveness, which is an expression of Love, and Love, which is a symbolic alignment with God, is focus on and offered, awaking occurs and the nightmare is gone. If you are still so invested in the nightmare that you cannot offer forgiveness or self-forgiveness, at the very least remind yourself that you do have the power to awaken, and thus to begin anew. Begin to awaken by consciously picking thoughts that feel good for you to think, such as those that bring you a sense of calm and peace. You don’t want to increase your guilt by saying things that you don’t really yet believe or resonate with. Thus, instead of forgiving your sister when you don’t really mean it, maybe you can say something like: “I can’t yet completely forgive my sister, but I know that God is forgiving, and I know I am One with God, therefore there is a part of me, that can through God’s mercy and grace, begin to forgive her. I can, through God’s mercy and grace, begin thinking, practicing and aligning with, more forgiving, kind, gentle and peaceful thoughts when my sister comes to mind. If I still cannot think as God would have me think, then I allow God to think these loving thoughts for me, until I can appreciate the wisdom of His thinking. I am, as God’s creation, worthy of peace of mind and joy, but being that we are all One, I now know that I can not withhold forgiveness, peace and joy from another, and still experience them myself. Awakening to this knowledge, I now offer all others, what I myself desire to experience.”
Today, when feeling stuck in the ego’s nightmares, let us no longer put ourselves or others down for this simple lack of self-awareness. Instead, let us use such states of mind to trigger in us the desire to awaken. Aligning with Love and Light, are symbols that we are awakening. Love and Light have many expressions, such as those of forgiveness, having a greater trust in God’s plan, peace, compassion and joy. Nightmares and the thoughts and expressions that they produce, are not the truth in us. They are simply symbols of a mind that is unaware or asleep to its true nature. Some symbols of a mind asleep are those of self-judgment and judgment of others, anxiousness, anger, resentment, jealousy and hate. Let us today make the conscious decision to no longer punish ourselves or others for being asleep. Let us simply recognize such states of mind as being out of alignment with our loving nature, and allow this self-awareness, to help begin to awaken us, from the ego’s dream.
