The ego is always having you look for an outside target to judge, blame and criticize. When “you” do so, understand that it is not the truth in you, but the ego and its programs, who are currently in control of your mind and thinking. When we blame the outer world, the ego is programming us to believe that the outer world has power over us. Thinking that the outer world has power over us only increases our levels of anxiety, stress and need to defend ourselves. This way of thinking also reduces our sense of safety, peace and control. Imagine, yourself against seven plus billion people, not a very secure environment right? Now, imagine you at One with those seven plus billion people, all brothers and sisters, knowing that you all come from the same Source, and that Source being Perfect Love. Believing this, what would you have to fear? What if Love and It’s expressions was all you saw in others and they in you? What need for concern, stress or anxiety, would you again need to feel? What if being all One, you knew that everyone’s truth only desired what was best for you? These awakened beings, knowing that we are all One, would logically only want what is in your best interest, because it would be also in their best interest. All that is stopping us from seeing the world in this manner is our lack of faith in the sacred nature of the journey that each one of us has co-created with an all-loving God. When you start trusting in God’s plan, which is also your highest-will plan, instead of trusting in the ego’s plan for your life, peace results. Yes we are all One, but at the same time, each one of us has a very specific, necessary and unique part to play. Trust this truth as true, and as you do, your judgments of self and others will begin to dissolve away before your light and understanding.
In reality, the outer world is simply a reflection of our internal condition. If our minds are chaotic and stressed out, the outer world will appear chaotic and stressful. Equally so, the more peace we have within our minds, the more peaceful our world will appear to be. In either case, nothing truly changes in the outer world. What changes is our perception of it, our internal interpretation, condition and dialogue. Regardless of how the world and those in it choose to grow and express themselves, if we are constantly supporting a state of peace within our minds, the world and those in it, will be seen and experienced through a more peaceful lens. Thus, the true power to experience a peaceful life resides within us, not outside of us. Imagine, the relief you will feel, when you finally realize, that how you experience this world, is not up to seven plus billion people ‘out there’, it’s up to you. After all is said and done, it is you who is responsible for the thoughts you think and thus for your level of peace. Only we can control what is within us, our internal condition and dialogue, and thus our level of peace. Let us no longer go on an endless journey trying to change everyone around us, just so that we can feel more peaceful and joyful. Instead, let us go within, correct our thinking, and see how we can begin to take greater personal responsibility for how we are viewing and interpreting our experience. Let us consciously realign our internal dialogue with God’s Love, and allow our loving nature to lead the way. We will know when we are allowing Love to lead us, because the energies of forgiveness, compassion, peace and joy will become our constant companions, and begin to reflect and embrace, everyone and all.
Today, as often as you can, remind yourself that it is you who has the power to see and relate to this world as you choose to. Remember that it is you, and only you, who holds the key to your peace of mind – through the thoughts you think and entertain. When the ego demands you judge, blame, and criticize self or another, and thus lose your peace of mind, instead stop and recall, where the ego’s mindset has taken you before. Remember, that the ego simply wants us to give our power away to it. Today, take back control of your thinking by saying to yourself: “Above all of the ego’s demands, today my goal is to take personal responsibility for my own thoughts, and thus for the way I see and define this world. I trust that I am in God’s caring hands, and that His Will, will be done. I trust in the sacred and perfect nature of the journey that God and I have co-created. I trust in the perfect and sacred nature of the journey that He has co-created with all others. I now know what is happening in each and every moment, is always, in some way, shape or form, serving the highest good. I now know that when I align my internal dialogue, my mind with God, and trust Him completely, stress and anxiety dissolves, and the state of peace results. Today, I acknowledge and support that Love created me lovingly, and so my truth is Love and only Love. If my truth is Love, and we are all One, then when I am seeing the truth in others, I am only seeing and reacting to their loving essence and nature. Understanding this, I rest at peace, assured because God is perfect, and only creates perfectly. Now that my internal dialogue is aligned with Love, I know that each one of my brothers’ and sisters’ seven plus billion journeys, are all as they should be, all forever serving the higher good.
Today, let us recall that how we see, define and experience the outer world, begins always as a thought within our mind. Understanding this, now if we are not at peace, we no longer blame anything or anyone outside of us. Instead, now we take personal responsibility for our own thoughts, thinking, and thus the condition of our state of mind. A lack of peace is now a symbol to us that it is the ego and its past programs who are in control of our thinking. Now we know that because God is Love and All, the ego placing itself in opposition to God, is nothing. When we place our faith in nothing, then confusion, fear and chaos result. When we place our faith in God, peace results. Today, let us allow the state of peace, to become a symbol to us, that we are back in control of our own minds and thinking. The state of peace comes about from the understanding that our journeys are a sacred co-creation with God, and thus always serving the higher good. Trusting fully in God, we rest assured and at peace, knowing that all will always be all right.
