Daily Inspiration: July 20. Why Do We Keep Repeating Patterns?

Motivating Videos to Help People become Enlightened  video of James reading with commentary


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.

Thanks to my God for all giving especially strengthening me through this worthy daily advise. Pray for me and family too.

Thank you Chandrabose for being open to the message.

It is an honor for me to pray for you and your family.

God, from the most humble place in my heart and the most sunny side of my soul, I ask you to bring peace and clarity, hope and healing to Chandrabose and his or her family. When the ego demands judgment from them, please God step in and guide them to forgiveness and compassion. When the enemy requires them to become angry and hateful, God please open their hearts so that they may show each other mercy, love and grace. Lord, when anything in their life or environment has them become stressed out or worried, God please send all your guardian angles to this family. Have these angels lift their spirits up so that they can focus on You, on the Light instead of the darkness. Let them remember that they, thanks to Your gifts of free will, can choose to fully trust You, the Creator of the Universe, and in doing so, worry and stress out no more. Lord, I now stand up straight and tall with arms raise towards the Heavens knowing that I, even as a simple humble servant, will be heard by Perfection Himself. God, I respectfully request You who are Love, Light and All, to help this family become a beacon of light for others. Today, and every day, may they be guided by Your Love and all of Love’s expressions, such as those of peace, joy, forgiveness, kindness, clarity of mind and service to others. May they be led by your wisdom and knowledge. May they be protected from the darkness and every day be lifted up as a symbol of the light in all of us. God, I thank You with all my heart for hearing my prayer. Amen.

All glory to God.

Peace. JBC

Thank you! When I read these words it is a reminder and a reassurance that all of life is in God’s hands.

Thank you Dale for being open to the message.

When we truly trust God, peace results.

Today when anxiousness or fear try to take over our minds, let us stop that line of thinking, and choose instead to trust God by placing all our worries in His hands. With these heavy burdens of our minds let us breathe deeply and return back Home to the state of peace.

Peace. JBC

I have forgiven my family for the horrible ways they treated my son and made him feel so awful and unloved. My son died in a car accident 3 years ago. Forgiveness does not mean forgetting, that is not humanly possible, nor is it wise. Now I find my younger sister has a very aggressive and fast moving Pancreatic Cancer and will be starting a intense version of Chemotherapy. My heart wants to help her, and yet the other part of my heart remembers when I and my son really needed her, she turned her back and acted like we did not exist. My heart is so conflicted. I read your post today and while the idea sounds heavenly, I still live here on Earth and some hurt is so very deep and real. This is also part of the human experience, is it not? If I were Jesus perhaps I might be able to act as if any way my family decides to treat me is okay and “looked past,” but I am not Jesus, Buddha, etc. How in the world do I help her now when she needs it most, yet all the while knowing, she chose not to do the same for me or my son?!!

Thank you Sharon for being a member of our community.

I’m very sorry for your loss.

We have been programmed by the ego to “act” and react as it has taught us to act and react. Judgment is the ego’s main fuel source, thus it has us use judgment not for our benefit, but for its benefit, so that it can survive through us. We have already played the ego’s judgment and self-judgment games a thousand times before, and they have never brought us the true peace of mind and joy they had promised that we would feel.

Today, let us choose to play the ego’s games no longer. When you find yourself falling into judgment’s trap, consciously stop yourself, no longer feed a mindset with your time, focus and energy, that is not producing the results of peace of mind and joy that you want. Instead, lift your head up high to the sky, and humbly ask God and your son, who is now with God, to lead the way.

Today, take a step back from the ego’s demands for judgment and gently allow Love to lead you.

Do what you know your son, being now in a place of perfect love, would want you to do.

Do what will have you, when you meet your son again, be able to walk towards him and Him, with your arms wide open and your head held high.

Do what would make your son proud and what would make God smile.

Do that, and the peace of mind and joy that are both expressions of Love, of who your son is now One with, will begin to flow and radiate through you.

Do so and every time you choose forgiveness over judgment and compassion over resentment, you will be choosing the flow of your son’s loving memory and eternal essence over the delusional and chaos producing mindset of the ego’s world.

Do so, so when each day slows down and the sun begins to set, you will know that your efforts to be compassionate when this world cried out for condemnation, will make your son smile, happy and proud.

Peace. JBC

Honestly, I keep repeating past patterns with romantic relationships. I will “fall in love” then ignore big warning signs that this is not a person I should stay with. Luckily I see it more quickly now, but I want to break this cycle.
I guess I” lose my spirit”when I am with someone. I am determined to change this pattern. Do you have any suggestions? Something that I am missing?

Thank you Nancy for your comment.

Just keep supporting only the love in you as true, and keep letting go of who you are not, which is anything other than the love in you.

Every day invite God to walk with you, to decide for you, to speak through you, and lead you to the most loving whole person and situation.

Trust, that because you have co-designed your journey with Perfection, that no matter what the ego says about your journey, know that your journey is perfect for you. Knowing this, become grateful to every part of your journey. Now, let gratitude become your response to ever moment, and every one along the way.

Peace. JBC
