Today, when our minds temporarily yield to judgment of self or others, stress or pessimism, let us recall that thanks to free will, the amount of time we spend in such states is purely up to us. Let us no longer choose to unconsciously dwell in them. Instead, let us recall that God is Love and All, thus this and every moment will be used in our own growth, healing and awakening process. Understanding this, let us no longer sulk in, tread water or even sink into the ego’s swamp of negativity. Let us simply take an honest look at the thoughts and emotions we are thinking and experiencing, and look for ways we can use them to heal. Then let us thank them for reminding us that we no longer want or need what they offer us. Let us remember that it is always we who should be in control of our thoughts, it is not our thoughts who should be controlling us. If our thoughts are not taking us to where we desire to be, then thanks to free will, we have every right to stop supporting them. We are God’s, Love’s, creations. Thus in reality, only the loving thoughts in us are true, real, and worthy of our support. In this world of duality, unloving thoughts, such as judgment, stress and pessimism, may seem real, but are not real. Yet, if we allow the ego’s mindset to rule over us, to think for us, then of course it will want to continue to feed, fuel and focus on its illusionary thoughts as real. This will make them appear to be a greater part of our lives. The bigger part of our lives they appear to be, the more real they will seem to us, and thus the more we will come to their defense. But do not despair, for even if a large part of our life is supporting, through our focus on them, illusionary thoughts as real, that still does not make them real. It is we who have learned such illusionary behaviors, and thus it is also we who have the power to unlearn what we have learned.
Today, let us acknowledge that the time we spend with any specific thought or emotion is up to us and us alone. Today, when the ego once again demands judgment of self or others, let us simply smile and recall that that kind of thinking has gotten us nowhere we desire to be. Instead let us do the opposite of what has gotten us nowhere, and forgive. When the ego’s programs tells us that we must be anxious and stressed out, we will instead recall that God being Love and All, is always in our corner, and trust that all will be alright. When pessimism tries to place a dark cloud over our skies, we will simply recall, that clouds may come and go, but the sun will always shine. It is we who have control over magnifying or eliminating the thoughts we think, and thus of how we are, in every moment, coloring and shaping our experience. Every single thought you have and support, is in essence a brick that you are laying on the foundation of the life you are creating. Would you not find it logical and wise that it would be you, and only you, who should have control over your thoughts, and thus over the life you build and live? It is when you are in alignment with the truth in you, the love that you were created to be, that shows you are in control of your thoughts, thinking, mind and life. When your thoughts are of an unloving nature, when they are judgmental, stressful, anxious or pessimistic, this shows that you are not in control of your thoughts, thinking, mind and life. Today recall, that if your thoughts are unloving in nature, then it is your ego, your past programming, that is in truth controlling you, and thus shaping the life you are living. Yet still do not despair, for now we have clear guidelines showing us when we are, and when we are not, in control of our thoughts, and thus of our minds and lives.
Today, let us practice, on a moment to moment basis, taking greater control over the thoughts we are thinking, and thus of the life we are shaping and living. Now we understand that when our thoughts are of a loving nature, they are expressing who in truth we are, and are showing us that it is we who are in control of our thoughts, thinking, minds and lives. We now also understand that when our thoughts are of an unloving nature, it is our programmed self that has the wheel, that is driving our car, and thus in essence living our lives for us. Is it now any wonder why you feel unfulfilled when you are in alignment with the ego’s mindset? Understanding this, is the first step in undoing the thoughts and life we do not want. Understanding this, we can begin to consciously support and place our time, focus and energy, on the thoughts that will indeed support the life we want. As God’s loving creations we are here to create as He created, through love. Then through our example, let us show others, how they too can do the same. What else but gratitude could you have for your Creator, when you recall that it is you and you alone, who are ultimately in charge and responsible for what you think, feel, say, do and create? Today, let us see, that the amount of time we spend in any negative or unloving state of mind, is after all is said and done, purely up to us to decide. Let us also note and be grateful that, through free will, we can in any moment, choose what thoughts we support as true and thus our experience. We can indeed in any moment choose forgiveness over judgment, trust in God over stress filled thoughts, and optimism over pessimism. What a gift it is to know that we can let go of what no longer serve us. What a gift it is that the life we want, is always, thanks to free will, just a simple choice away.
Today, let us recall that it is we, not the ego, who should be in control of our thoughts, and thus of the life we are creating. Our Creator is Love. Thus let us allow loving thoughts to become a sign to us that our true nature is in control of our thinking. Let us also allow unloving thoughts to show us when the ego, not the truth in us, is in control of our thinking. Our mission on Earth is to create as Love created, through love, in whichever ways are most specific to our individual gifts, passions, hopes and dreams. In every moment, thanks to God’s gift of free will, we have the right to create the life we want. Let us take this immense responsibility to heart, and start taking greater control over the thoughts we think, by aligning them with the love that we are. By doing so, let us become the gifts to this planet that we were all created to be.
