Many times figuring out who you are not, actually helps you figure out who you desire to be. Figuring out what thoughts, words, emotions and actions, don’t help you create the life you want, helps you in its own way achieve greater self-awareness. Once you tire of supporting who you are not, it is then you will choose to look for the real you. Now, instead of judging yourself for being who you are not, thank who you are not for helping guide you out and away from the false ego-self. Today, let us start retraining our minds, to be grateful for everything our journey has taught us about who we no longer desire to be. Those delusional thoughts that you once bought as real, such as those of judgment, anger, anxiousness, resentment and hate, now are seen as useful steps on your ladder to awakening. They have in their own sacred ways helped you become a more forgiving, peaceful, confident, loving and joyful person. Now you understand, that each and every one of your steps, no matter how much the ego has trained you to judge them, were actually of great use in helping you recall your true loving essence and nature. How would this shift in perception from judgment to gratitude begin to affect your life? Would you not become an example to those who are currently feeling upset, lost and confused? Would you not become a sort of light at the end of the tunnel for them? Would you not bring hope to the hopeless, and certainty and guidance to those who are looking for greater self-awareness? This is the opportunity that your whole life experience, in every moment, is offering you. Today, practice being grateful to every step along your sacred path. Today, remember that The Divine is, who has design your journey with you, and that because of that all steps along your sacred path will be used for the betterment of not only yourself but also of all mankind.
The mindset that the ego’s past programming supports, but does not support us, reflects itself in many forms. Judgment of self and others, anxiousness, anger, resentment, envy, hate and revenge, these are all fabrications of the ego’s mindset. You can tell when a thought is a fabrication of the ego’s mindset when you lose your peace of mind. The state of peace, as an expression of Love, is your true mindset, where you belong, and who you came here to be, represent, and share with others. If you’re not in the state of peace, you are in essence lost. Feeling lost, brings about the states of confusion, insecurity, lack of balance and fear. None of these are expressions and extensions of Love. None of these are reflections of who in truth you are, where you belong, or who you are meant to be and share. These are expressions and extensions of the ego’s mindset, and the ego is a very simply a limited illusionary belief system within your mind. Being illusionary in nature, none of what the ego supports and “creates” as true is true. When you are buying into the false as true, when you have lost your peace of mind and joy, no longer put yourself down for simply being human. Instead, use such instances as wake up calls. Such calls help remind you that you are stuck believing in a mindset that is not yours, and that it is now time to depart from it and awaken. Judgment is the main fuel source of the ego, because aligning with it unconsciously separates you from feeling at One with an all-loving God. Judgment, nor any of the ego’s fabrications, are a part of God, and thus they are not real parts of you. Why would God, who is Perfect, Love and All, ever need to judge? He doesn’t and neither do you. God, Love is All, and so the ego and its judgment based mindset, placing itself in opposition to All, must be in truth nothing, unreal, a false idol and a lie.
Today, we have one simple task, to end our support for those thoughts that don’t support us. How simple is today’s task, when all you are being asked to do, is to practice letting go of who you are not? Practice throughout your day releasing thoughts that do not support you. Release these thoughts, but not with judgment and resentment, but with forgiveness and gratitude. We release them with forgiveness and gratitude because they have helped teach us who we are not. As you continue to practice releasing thoughts that don’t support you, because we are all One, this serves others as an example of what is also possible for them. This will then help them re-encounter their true-selves and nature. Your life experience and overcoming your challenges are the tools that you then will use to help others recall who in truth they are. Seeing this, you will then better be able to conceptualize how each step along your journey was of use, sacred and good. Now you know that every step that the ego had you condemn yourself or others for, was actually a blessing and gift in disguise. What a blessing and relief it will be to stop judging parts of our journey, and thus in essence, stop judging parts of ourselves. What a blessing and relief it is to now be able to see every part of our journey as helpful and sacred, and thus every part of ourselves as useful and good. Today, let us recall and reinforce only the truth in us as true. We are God’s, Love’s creation, and God only creates perfectly. Now we know that every single one of our steps, of our thoughts, emotions, expressions, actions, reactions and interactions, always serve a higher purpose and a greater good.
Today, let us practice supporting who we are, and letting go of who we are not. As God’s creations, we are Love in physical form. Being forgiving, compassionate, peaceful and joyful, as Love’s expressions, are all symbols of one who is in alignment with who they in truth are. Any thought, word, emotion or action, that is in opposition to Love and its expressions, is who we are not. Let us practice letting go of who we are not, but not through judgment and resentment, but through forgiveness and gratitude. We release with forgiveness and gratitude, because we now understand, that every single step along our path, being a sacred co-creation with God, serves and will serve a greater good. Understanding this we now see every step that we or others take, as helping us all grow, heal and awaken. Now let us spend less time judging self and others, and more time aligning with and reinforcing our loving nature. Now, One with Love, we walk ahead, head held high, certain that we will all, at own sacred pace, become who we came here to be.
