As the last sunset of a challenging year sets, let us remember that this is not an end, but a beginning. Every single moment, when properly perceived, allows us the opportunity to begin anew. The present moment itself, when experienced, is free from past judgments or future imaginings. The present moment is forever free to be what you desire it to be. Choose to no longer drag the past onto the now, and thus cover over what is truly being presented to you. No matter what you perceived that others have done to you, their actions only reside in the past. It is only you who can drag their actions onto the now, and thus obscure the present moment’s true gifts. Choose to no longer block God’s gifts that reside within the present moment from yourself. No longer support thoughts that you know don’t align you with God’s gifts of mercy and grace. When you choose to see the now through God’s mercy and grace, it is here that the present moment is seen freed from the past. No longer hold your past judgments as more valuable to you than your peace of mind. Today, take personal responsibility for your thoughts. Know and acknowledge, that it is only you, who can hold yourself back from experiencing the gifts that reside within the eternal now. No longer blame the outer world, knowing that it is not the world, but only your own thoughts about it, that can hold you a hostage to the past. It is only you who hold the key to your freedom. It is only you, through the choices you make, who can forgive the past and return to the now. It is only you, who can choose to trust God, lay your worries of the future fully in His hands, and by doing so, return to the now. Free-will invites us, in every moment, to choose forgiveness and trust, and thus by doing so, value the present moment over the future or the past.
It is our choice, and ours alone, to forgive and be free from the past, or to continue to condemn it, others and ourselves, and so to continue to carry its burdens. It is judgment’s burdens that keep us a prisoner to our past. Today, let us look back at our past, we may not need to look too far back, and think about what has judging and becoming angry with others or ourselves, ever truly done for us? Has this type of behavior ever brought clarity to our minds, or has it fed our confusion, conflict and guilt? Has this behavior ever brought harmony to our hearts, and a sense calm to our souls, or has it made us restless and resentful? Has this behavior helped us move forward in our lives, or has it chained us to the past? Does this behavior allowed us to relax on our beds and fall quietly to sleep, or does it have us tossing and turning at night, and waking up as tired as when we went to sleep? Is it not time to try another way? Maybe a more gentle, peaceful and loving way? Is it not time to consciously stop behaving in forms that only pollute and poison us and those around us? My dear friend, judgment is not wisdom. The relinquishment of judgement, is true wisdom. Relinquish your judgments, for if you truly knew how little information and understanding you have about yourself and others, your and their past, present and future, and how that relates to the rest of the Universe, then you would see, how truly worthless and useless judgements are. Is it not time to maybe leave the running of the Universe, and of all those in it, to God? Today, allow your release of judgments to be a symbol to you, that you are finally ready to give up the fantasies and fairy tales, the false concepts and deceptions, of the ego’s mindset and programs.
Is it not time to let go of the ego’s programs and their attachment to its ideas of judgment, separation, guilt, fear, worry, confusion and chaos? Why continue to support a mindset that does not have your best interest in mind? Why continue to support a thought process that only leads you to further darkness and despair? It is time my friend, and that is why you are reading this now, because you have come to a place in your awakening process, that gives you enough clarity to see. Today, because we are God’s children, we accept His loving inheritance. We accept and support forgiveness, compassion, trust in God, peace, joy and understanding. We allow Love’s energies to lead us, and by doing so, leave the past forever behind. Now, aligned with the mind of God, we see every moment, as an opportunity to begin anew. Why not try walking hand in hand with the mercy and grace of God? Today, when in doubt, recall that there is no story that you have been programmed to believe, no judgment or resentment you have been told to hold dear, that is greater than God’s mercy and grace. God is Love and All. Ask yourself, would God not want me to always act lovingly, towards myself and others? God desires you to treat all his children with love, with mercy and grace. To do so, practice letting go of your attachments to your past, and to your worries about the future. See only God’s children as the love that they were created to be. Today, practice consciously aligning only with your eternal loving essence, and only offering this to all who God presents to you. We have come far this year, and yet, because God is All, in truth it has always been a journey without distance to a place we have never left. It has been a journey from forgetting to remembering, from sleep to awakening, and from who we never were, to who in truth we have always been, are, and will always be.
Today, if you find yourself once again traveling the ego’s judgment filled roads, do not despair, instead consciously choose to unite with the Love that God is, and begin anew. What better to lead you back to peace, then the Love that God is? Allow Love to lead the way. Do so by forgiving the past and placing the future fully in God’s hands. What do you have to lose by doing so? Judgment of self and others, anger, resentment, fear and hate? Are these energies, and the emotions that they support, such terrible things to lose? My dear friend, when you allow Love to lead you, you lose nothing, because Love is everything. Everything that is real, worthy and true. You as God’s child, are forever worthy of all of His loving inheritance, and because we are all One, so too is everyone else. Recalling that we are all One, today simply offer all others what you yourself would desire to experience. Do so, and now aligned with the Mind of God, choose again and begin anew.
