As you notice people participating in the ego’s illusionary mindset, you will see that their performance is like that of children playing imaginary games. When you see them as children playing games, this will not come from a sense of superiority, but from the understanding of their eternal innocence. Now, if they judge you, you have no need not judge them back, because that would be like you defending yourself against a child’s imaginary game. If they shape their little hand into an gun, regardless of how many illusionary bullets they shoot your way, they cannot hurt you. Your choice to not defend yourself is thus not a sign of superiority or weakness, but of clarity and wisdom. Your inner certainty comes from knowing that you forever remain as God created you. You now know there are no illusionary thoughts, words or actions, within the ego’s fairy tale, that can change the changeless in you, or replace the irreplaceable in you. You now know that you do not need defend yourself, not because you are not worth defending, but because there is truly nothing to defend against. Imagine a world, where you no longer need to defend yourself against the shadows in your dreams. Imagine a world, where you can forgive or simply overlook the silly little games that those who remain asleep play while they dream. Imagine a world, where peace of mind, clarity, forgiveness, compassion, joy and understanding, become your constant companions. This world is always available to all of us, even while we sleep. Yes, even if you have forgotten that you are dreaming and buying into the ego’s tools and mindset as real, even then, God patiently and lovingly awaits for you to awaken. Awaken my dear friend, and when you do, you will realize that you have always been in God’s arms, forever safe in HIs loving embrace.
How much longer must we continue to waste away and sacrifice to defending ourselves against others imaginary games. Now, if we decide to duck when an imaginary bullet is fired our way, let us duck, but with a smile. Let us duck, but with the knowledge that no matter how much the child likes such games, that sooner or later he will get tired of playing them. Let us no longer condemn children for the games they choose to play. Let us no longer become angry or resentful of the imaginary bullets that are flying our way. Let us no longer punish ourselves for thinking that the child shot us because he or she thinks of us as less than or worth injuring. Once we get that one of their shots is imaginary in nature, is it then that we will start to realize that all of their shots, no mater in which form they come, are imaginary and not real. Today, let us simply smile at the children as they play their seemingly important, but in essence, imaginary games. Allow your smile while they play to be a symbol of one who has awakened, and is now an adult. Adults know when they are playing a child’s game. In such games they act appropriately, compassionately, respectfully, and lovingly. They will set, through their example, the tone for the game. Led by this tone, the child will feel safe, secure, joyous and loved. Today, let us be the adults, but again not because we feel better than or superior to, but because we desire to lead by example. Today, our forgiveness of other people’s judgment filled dreams will signal to us that we have awaken to who in truth we are. Today, let us set humbly the tone for our children, and for all those others who remain asleep. By doing so, let us help guide them back to a place of peace and self-awareness.
Today, let us recall that when we choose to not defend ourselves, when we in essence turn the other cheek, we reinforce the loving truth in us as true. When there is no longer a need to judge nor protect ourselves against a delusional mindset, it is then that the state of peace results. Today, let us check ourselves throughout the day by asking: “Am I at peace.” If you are at peace, give yourself a mental pat on the back and continue to serve as an example to others. If you are not at peace, do not punish yourself by continuing to judge self or others. Instead, use such instances to remind you that you have simply bought into the ego’s childish game as real. Then correct your behavior by aligning yourself with your loving nature. It is this correction that will help return you back into alignment with the state of peace. Today, let us be at peace knowing that a child is just a child for a little while, and that most children do desire to some day grow up. Knowing this, be patient and kind, generous and loving. God is Love and All. God loves All because He Himself is Love. Would it not be wise to at least try to follow God’s lead and example? Today, we have the opportunity to represent unconditional Love, God here on Earth. There is no greater gift that we can offer the children of this world then to try to be who God is. Let us today, share only our loving nature with them. Let us do so, not because of what they do or do not do, not because of what they say or do not say, but simple because of who they are. They are who we are, God’s children, all here together in this playground called Earth.
Today, let us practice seeing those who judge us, not as mean, bad or evil, but as simply asleep to their true nature. If we judge those that judge us, then that simply means that we too are asleep. Today, let us awaken from the ego’s dream by choosing to no longer sacrifice our time and energy judging those who sleep. Today, when judgmental thoughts come knocking on our mind’s door, let us forgive them, and by doing so decline their entrance into our kingdom. Today, we become examples of the awaken mind by forgiving those who judge us. When we forgive others’ their delusions of us, what we are in essence doing is choosing to align with the truth within. When we align with our truth instead of our delusions, with Love instead of fear, we let go of silly little judgment centered childish games that we know no longer serve us or this world.
