When we are buying into the ego’s false concepts as true, unconscious as it may be, we are choosing hopelessness over hope, darkness over light, and a fear-based mindset over God’s Love. This can manifest in numerous forms, such as when you choose judgment over forgiveness, anger over peace, condemnation over compassion, sadness over joy, or worry over trust. Today, if we find ourselves entertaining any of the ego’s thinking, let us not put ourselves or others down for being in this state of unconsciousness. Instead, let this trigger in us the desire to take our thinking and thus minds back from the ego. The more we practice deciding to turn away from ego’s mindset, the more control we will have over our thoughts, and thus over our lives. If you find yourself stuck within the ego’s mindset, do not despair. Simply recall that you have free will. Then use it to leave the darkness and return to the light. Hopelessness in not our Home, hope is. In every moment, no matter how hopeless it seems, thanks to free will, you can choose differently and begin anew. Every decision we make that moves us towards God, Love, leads us to hope. Simply practice doing what Love would do. Simply practice choosing with Love. We have free will, we do not have to blindly follow the ego’s mindset that only leads us further into the dark pit of despair. When feeling lost, hopeless and in despair, consciously stop that line of thinking, breathe deeply and recall that thanks to free will, the final choice of what thoughts we think, entertain and thus experience are ours and ours alone to make. No one other than you holds the key to your peace of mind, hope and joy. Today, allow peace of mind, hope, joy, compassion, forgiveness and a sense of gratitude, to symbolize to you that you are in the process of awakening and headed in hope’s direction.
Today, let us practice paying close attention to when we are, or are not, in control of our own thinking. When our minds are not aligning with loving thoughts, it is the ego and its programs, who is in control of our thinking, and thus of our lives. When our thoughts are aligned with Love, with our loving essence and nature, it is we who are in control of our thinking. Nothing other than the Love that created us, Who is All, is true. Hope, is an expression and extension of Love. Hopelessness, is a sense of homelessness. It is a symbol of one who has forgotten their Home, their connection to their Source, Love. Hopelessness, just as other ego-centered false concepts, such as those of judgment, anger, condemnation, sadness, worry and hate, are not our truth. Only when we place our time, focus and energy, on them, do they appear to be real. Focus fully on being your truth, your loving essence and nature, and they will cease to rule over you. Do not despair, your time in the ego’s grip will not be long now. The ego is self-destructive in nature, and thus more we use it, the more we realize how useless and unnecessary it truly is. This is the gift it offer us, to use its mindset long enough to realize its lack of utility, and how unlike and unaligned it is to the truth within. Once we realize that the ego’s programs are illusionary and useless, we let them go and become an example to others, that false concepts such as hopelessness, need not rule over us. This understanding helps return us back into alignment with hope, with the light in us. Still, know that the ego will not go quietly into the night. When it again tries to have you buy into its false concepts as true, simply remind yourself where the ego’s “advice” has led you, no where you want to be. Then learn to use such instances to trigger in you the desire to once again be, align with and share, the light within, the truth in you.
Today, let us awaken to the realization that we no longer need to buy into nor support the ego’s false concept of hopelessness as true. Today, let us use that feeling of hopelessness, not as a way to punish yourself or others, but as a gift, as an opportunity to truly feel and experience how different it is to our loving nature. It will be by bringing our misperceptions up to the surface light, where we will be able to see them for what they really are, not Love, not hope, not us. Let us recall that a sense of hopelessness must always begin as just a thought. Let us recall that thanks to free will, it is always we who have control over that thought. If we decide to stop fueling the thoughts that support the delusion of hopelessness, then hopelessness must begin to dissolve back into the nothingness from which it first came. Hopelessness could never continue to exist within one who is fully aligned with Love. What lack of hope could one who has co-designed his or her life with the Creator of the Universe ever experience? You are here as your Creator’s, Love’s creation. You are here as a representative of Hope. You are here to bring joy to the joyless, peace to those who are worried and anxious, and light and understanding to those confused and lost in the dark. Only Love, only the Truth in us can do that. Today, let us make the conscious decision to no longer feed hopelessness with our time, focus and energy. Let us instead use that time, focus and energy to support decisions that align us with our All-Loving Source. Let us allow Love, through our support of it, grow in us and guide us. As we allow Love to guide us, as we learn to choose with Love, our light will shine brighter and brighter each day. Let us pray that this light will reach those who are feeling hopeless, those who have yet to recall their true and eternal, essence, nature, mission and home.
Today, if a sense of hopelessness comes knocking at your mind’s door, do not put yourself or others down for this, for that would only sink you deeper into its darkness. Instead, recognize it, see that it is not offering you the life you want, recall that you have free will, and stop supporting the thoughts that support it. You no longer need to support thoughts that don’t support you. You have final say over the thoughts you think, and thus of your attitude. If you want a peaceful, joyful and hope filled life, then use your free will to start investing your time, focus and energy into supporting thoughts that will support the life you want. Today, make the conscious decision to end your support for the thoughts that fuel the false concept of hopelessness. Then place that same time, focus, energy and emotion, into looking for and supporting thoughts that move you in hope’s direction. Do so and watch your despair begin to fade away before your light and understanding.
