One who is truly present has forgiven the past and placed the future fully in God’s hands. It is within the eternal present moment where the Love and Peace of God forever reside. As Love’s creations, when we are in alignment with the present moment, our thoughts, words and actions reflect our loving nature. When we do anything other than Love, such as becoming judgmental, angry or resentful, these are signs that we have dragged our past programming onto the present moment. It is when we cover over the present with our past programming that we keep repeating patterns. This is how we surrender the present moment over to the past. In this state of mind, we never get to see, experience nor understand, what is truly going on. In this state of mind, the past does not just cover the present, but the future then becomes an extension and repetition of the past. In this state of mind, the future then never becomes what it should have been. The present and future then only becomes a reflection of our past. Is it any wonder then why we then keep on repeating patterns? We keep repeating past patterns, because we have never truly left, forgiven, let go of, or released, the past. If you desire to leave the past in the past, then a useful tool to do so is forgiveness. Each and every time that the ego would have you judge yourself or others, recall that you no longer desire to drag the past into the present. Then forgive it, and all those who were a part of it, including yourself. You do so with the knowledge that God being Love and All, that He can and will use all of our experiences for good. Let them all go in peace, by choosing to bless all that the ego would have you curse. It is this shift in perception that will free you to return back to the present moment, your true home here on Earth. When you return to the present moment, you begin to see life in alignment with God’s vision, through love, as it was truly meant to be experienced, enjoyed and shared.
We are in a fog of our own making, and yet we curse the weather for it. We are quicker to anger, feel tire, stressed out, carry the weight of the world on our shoulders, which is really the weight of the past on our shoulders. Still, we wonder why we are feeling fatigued, while our frustration grows. We blame everyone else for how we feel, because we have forgotten that we are all One. We have forgotten that everyone else out there is simply reflecting our internal condition. Let us today stop blaming the outer world and those in it and start taking greater personal responsibility for the thoughts we are thinking that are coloring our experience. When we do so we return to the now, to the present moment, where the Love and Peace of God forever resides. Aligned with this state of mind, we value God’s Love over the ego’s past programs. By doing so we align with God’s vision and begin to see people and situations as they really are. In the now, we are able to recognize the ego’s past programs as the delusions that they are. Now, judgment, anger, anxiousness, resentment and thoughts of revenge, are all understood as signs of one who is simply stuck in the past. In the now, we see how our past programs never brought us the peace of mind and joy that we, as Love’s creations, deserve and are here to experience, enjoy and share. Now, we understand that the ego’s programs bring us nothing but inner conflict, confusion, chaos, suffering and pain. Now, we know that it is time to let go of such self-destructive patterns and begin to look for a kinder, gentler and more compassionate, loving and productive way, of co-existing on with each other. Today, begin this journey to the now by offering all others only thoughts, words and actions that align you with your loving nature. Now, when you past patterns demand judgment, offer forgiveness. When these past patterns call out for anger, offer compassion. When these past patterns insist on resentment and revenge, offer them only peace and understanding.
Today, let our goal be to forgive the past, place the future fully in God’s hands, and become a representative of Love within the now. As a representative of Love we now understand all of our brothers’ and sisters’ past patterns as simply a call for love. They are simply asking us, in their own unique ways, to help them recall that the now, the love that in truth they are, is also available to them. Let us offer them in each moment the expression of Love that they are unconsciously asking for. Forgiveness, compassion, kindness and understanding, are all ways we break past patterns and return to the now, at One with the vision of God. In alignment with the vision of God we humbly become His representatives, a light within the darkness. Let us today not judge, but thank our brothers and sisters for bringing to us their past patterns. This way we can better practice identifying what is not real, and then seeing only the loving truth them as real. Because we are all One, this will only reinforce our own loving nature, and our own connection to our all-loving Source. Today, let our peaceful and joyful state of mind shine as a beacon to others, that remind them that they no longer need to be enslaved nor control by their past. Imagine, the inner power and peace you will feel, when this world demands judgment but you instead forgive. Imagine, the fulfillment you will feel when you are able to offer compassion when your past patterns call for condemnation. Imagine, being kind to someone the ego insists is deserving of rejection. All this is possible, when we aligned with our loving nature, reject our past patterns, and return to the now. Love is who our Creator is, and who He created us to be. Today, let us decide to serve only Love. Let us today support only loving thoughts as true. By doing so, we stop repeating past patterns, and begin to see the present moment as the gift that it truly is.
Today, let us note that being judgmental, anxious, angry, resentful, jealous, or hateful, are all signs of one who is stuck repeating the ego’s past patterns. We extend the past into the present and thus create a future like our past. This way the present and future become just repetitions of the past. In this mindset we never get to experience nor understand what is really going on because the ego, through its past programs, is in essence in control of our minds. It is living our lives for us. It is for this reason that we feel unfulfilled, lost, off balanced, confused and without hope or purpose. In order to break free from past patterns, let us forgive the past and place the future fully in God’s hands. This is how we start to break free from past patterns, and thus begin to take back control of our own minds and lives.
