Daily Inspiration: July 25. Creating an Active, Living “To Do List” for Your Soul

Today, let us take greater personal responsibility for how we choose to spend our moments throughout the day. The accumulation of these moments will become the life that we end up offering to this world. In order to become more aware of how we are spending our time, let us create two lists. In the first one, let us list moments that are helping us create the life we want. What are the thoughts, words, emotions, actions, reactions, interactions and beliefs that are moving us towards our desired destination? In the second list, let us will write down the moments that are in some way blocking or impeding us from creating and living the life we want. These will be ‘living lists’ that will grow or shorten, and ebb and flow, with the choices that you make on a daily basis. On one list, add the activities, thoughts, beliefs and relationships that bring you joy, passion, fulfillment, trust, love, self-love and inner peace. On the other list, write down the activities, thoughts, beliefs and relationships that bring you judgment, self-judgment, struggle, stress, anxiousness, anger and despair. Both of these lists are of equal importance, and should be questioned, thought about, and updated on a regular basis. Do not feel bad about the dark thoughts, for they will simply help you better see and define what you no longer want. This action in and of itself helps give you a clearer picture of the life you want. Now, any belief or programmed response that is not supporting the life you want is simply recognized, forgiven, and no longer supported. The less you support a certain thought or belief, the less they will appear in your experience. Once you recognize them as the false concepts that they are, you will be able to gently place them aside and continue on your sacred path. Seeing them for what they are, they will no longer block your light, hold you back, nor weigh you down. If every now and then they again pop up, thanks to your life experience you can recognize them, and without hesitation overlook or forgive them, and let them go.

It is we who control our thoughts, words and beliefs. It is we who make them a bigger part of our life by focusing on them, or diminish them by overlooking or forgiving them, and letting them go. If the life that you are currently experiencing is not aligned with the life you want, no longer choose to blame the outside world. Instead, go within, and ask yourself: “What thoughts, words and beliefs am I supporting with my time, focus and energy that are not supporting the life I want?” Do not feel ashamed or afraid to go within. Today, confidently reach into your darkness, into the parts of you that remain asleep and have yet to awaken to who in truth you are. Do so with the knowledge that God is Love, and that He only desires you to grow, heal and awaken. Recall that God being Love, will use all, every step along your path, for good. Now, with your head held high, assured and secured, look within and bring your darkness up to the surface. By doing so, you will begin to watch the darkness slowly dissipate before your light and understanding. Today, consciously shift the thoughts that reside within you from those of fear to those of love. The power to redesign your world resides within you now. The ego wants you to believe that it is the outside world who holds the power over the kind of world you see. The ego does this in order to make you feel powerless and subservient to it. We have all been subservient to the ego’s mindset and programs long enough. Let us now awaken to the understanding that the true power to see and experience this world as we wish, resides within. Let us today align our thoughts with those of Love, and begin to reflect our true eternal loving essence and nature once again here on Earth.

What if today you decided: “No matter how I may have been programmed by the ego to think of myself, I now courageously look within and start removing all thoughts that do not align me with my loving nature. The more I practice trusting that God being Love only loves me, the less afraid or ashamed of looking within and healing myself I will be.” Today, let our goal be to help feed, support and nourish, with our time, focus and energy, those thoughts, emotions and beliefs, that are assisting us in creating and sharing with others, the life we want. Let us also slowly diminish, let go, and starve off, those thoughts, emotions and beliefs, that seem to be blocking our light, and impeding our journey. Today, let us not be afraid nor ashamed of our darkness or unconsciousness. Instead, let us become extra vigilant, detailed and understanding, of how our darkness manifest, so that we can more quickly catch it when it tries to take over our thinking. The sooner we learn to recognize this foreign mindset, the less time we will need to spend in a darkness of our own making. Today, let us note that a lack of peace is a signal that shows us when the ego is ruling our minds. Equally so, let the state of peace show you when the truth in you is back in control of your thinking. Anytime you lack peace, do not despair, simply remind yourself that it is you who are in control of your thinking, thus it is you who can change the thoughts that you are focused on and thus experiencing. Let us no longer fear our negative thoughts. Instead, let us bring them to the surface, so that we may see them for what they are, not true, not real, not us. Then, as we forgive them, we dismantle them. Now, back in control of our minds, we can start becoming, through the loving thoughts we think, the light that we were created to be. 

Today, let us practice clarifying and reinforcing who in truth we are, and understanding, forgiving and letting go of, who we are not. Let us not be afraid nor feel ashamed about our darkness. Our darkness is simply a symbol of a lack of self-awareness. Today, let us bring our darkness to the surface, so that the light of love and understanding may shine on them. As our light shines on them, they can be seen as the delusions that they are, and then forgiven and let go. The more we can define and understand the thoughts that are holding us back from the life we want, the more easily we will be able to let go of who we are not, and align with who we were created to be. It is by looking at the illusionary blocks that are blocking us from expressing the light within, that will free us to become the expressions of love and light that we were created to be.

Thank you-Your insight is very much appreciated! Chapter 15 Sec, 10 & 11 on
“Sacrifice” has been swirling in me the past week, and now that it’s all done and said, I can see where I was totally learning that lesson. Do you have anything in your archives about “sacrifice”? I would love to get your insight on that.

Thank you Mary for your comment and question.

You can not in truth sacrifice anything because there is nothing real to sacrifice.

The Love of God is yours, has forever been yours, and will forever be yours.

What sacrifice has the ego convinced you that you must make in order to experience and share the Love of God?

Nothing the ego says is true, because the ego itself is a lie.

Enough already with the ego’s deceptions and lies. Enough already with buying into the false as true.

Today, simply share the Love that you are, with all others. Do so, and set the example that no sacrifice is required, in order to become who we came here to be.

Peace. JBC

Thank you James! This was so helpful after picking myself up out of a few days of a very dark place that seemed to have come out of now where. I have been diligently doing ACIM lessons and workbook for some time now and between your daily Inspiration and ACIM I have felt like I have cleared a lot of blockage. I do see how my thoughts were involved in this last meltdown but it was really unexpected and felt like I got hit by a Mack truck. What is that?

Thank you Mary for being open to the message.

When darkness comes calling, make the conscious choice not to put yourself down for the feelings and experience, for that will only keep fueling that fire. Instead, thank it for coming, for helping give you, a clearer picture, of what you do and do not want.

Ask yourself, what unforgiving thoughts am I holding unto that have unconsciously invited this energy in? Then make the conscious choice to forgive yourself your misperception of self and others. For anyone you have judged, pray for them, for their healing, joy, peace and awakening.

As an ACIM student remember, that there in truth is nothing “out there”, that everything is an extension of your thoughts and mind. Understanding this, those darken thoughts where hidden within you. It is only by bringing them to the surface, to the light, that they can be seen as the delusions that they are.

Lastly, remember that God is Love and All. Every step of your journey, when properly perceived, is seen and understood as a gift from God to you. It is here to help you grow, heal and awaken.

Today, no matter how much the ego wants you to judge and thus continue to fuel the darkness, instead simply smile at the ego’s silly little delusional games, and thank God for the opportunity that you are being given to heal. Forgive all unforgiven thoughts.

Now, with gratitude in your heart and peace in your mind, continue on the sacred and perfect path that you have co-designed with the Divine.

I love these dayli reminders.
❤️ Sarah

Thank you Sarah for being a member of our community.

Every moment allows us the opportunity to begin anew.

Today, if you are lacking joy, stop that mindset and look for ways to bring joy to others. Being all One when you give the gift of joy you will get to first experience the thoughts of joy flowing through you. When you are feeling angry or resentful, stop that line of thinking and offer the target of your anger and resentment your forgiveness and compassion. Do so and peace will become your constant companion. When in doubt or feeling fearful, use the present moment, the Holy instant to return your mind to the mind of God, then from this perfectly loving place hand over all such dark emotion into God’s hands. Do so and feel the weight of the world being lifted from you.

As God’s child and creation you are forever worthy of all the gifts that reside within the present moment, within the heart of God.

Peace. JBC
