When you declare your independence from the ego, not only do you set yourself free, but you also help begin to set the whole world free. When you let go of the ego’s tools, such as those of judgment, anger and resentment, you no longer look upon turmoil, confusion and chaos, and proclaim them as your own. You instead free your brothers and sisters from them, and by doing so, break yourself free from the chains that bound you to the ego’s world. What good does it do to maintain a prison within your mind, if there are no prisoners that through judgment, anger and resentment, you hold captive? What good are judgment, anger and resentment, when you make the conscious decision to look upon everyone through compassionate, loving and forgiving eyes? Today, let us declare our in independence from the ego’s rule. We do so by choosing the opposite of what it demands we choose. When it demands judgment, we offer forgiveness instead. When it wants us to be angry, we instead show compassion. When it wants us to sulk in resentment, we will instead be understanding. Today, let us offer our gratitude to anyone who helps us practice achieving our independence from the ego. The more we get to practice being consciously independent from the ego, the less need or use we will have for it. Thanks to free will, our freedom is always, even during our seeming darkest trails, a simple choice away. Rejoice, for if it is you who has unconsciously chosen along with the ego’s mindset, then it is also you who can consciously choose to free yourself from it. The power to release yourself from this foreign mindset resides not somewhere out there, but within you. Yes, it is in the end only you who can choose between judgment or forgiveness, anger or compassion, resentment or peace, and imprisonment or freedom.
You have fought long and hard to get to this point in your life. A point where you are awakening to the understanding that you belong aligned with the Love’s energies and expressions. You have travel long and far on the ego’s path, but having done so, you now know that it does not get you any closer to your desired destination. You have defended the ego’s mindset that always insisted that you are right and that they are wrong. Yet now, you are beginning to figure out that being happy is much more desirable to you than being right. You have sacrificed and ended relationships because the ego insisted that there was always someone more worthy of you out there. Yet now, you are seeing that in the present moment, whoever you are with, is your greatest gift. Let us today no longer fight on behalf of the ego. Instead, let us concentrate our energy on fighting the good fight, on retraining our minds to look upon this world through Love’s eyes. It will be by doing so that we will begin to dissolve the ego’s mindset from our experience. Today, let us no longer judge others, when all that they are in truth doing is offering us the opportunities to practice healing our own minds. Imagine, no longer having the taste or hunger for judgment, anger and resentment. Imagine, viewing the ego’s tools and mindset and deciding that they are no longer worth the heavy weight that its burdens would have us carry. How much longer must you log around your judgments, anger and resentments, before you realize that they are just not worth the effort, nor are worthy of you. How much longer do you need to hold unto them before you realize that they should not be worth more to you than your peace of mind and joy?
Today, let us practice feeling what it’s like to be truly free. Today, let us throw away the ego’s tools in the same garbage dump where all of it’s trinkets, in time, seem to end up in. Then let us turn away from its dumping ground and start walking towards a world were Love’s expressions such as forgiveness and compassion reign supreme. In such a world, free from judgment of self and others, anger and resentment, we are finally free to be who our Creator created us to be. Today, let us make in every interaction, the conscious choice for love. This way we model to those still lost in the ego’s ways, how to free themselves from the darkness and return to being One with the light within. As awakening beings, we no longer must drag the ego’s ball and chain around our hearts and minds. No longer must the ego’s judgmental mindset burden us nor weigh us down. No longer must we continue to toss and turn at night because such thoughts are not allowing us to fall peacefully to sleep. Today, through forgiveness, and by focusing only on our loving nature, let us make peace with the past. In doing so we set ourselves, and those we carry within us, free from it. Let us also fret no longer over the future. Instead, let us recall that there is Someone much wiser than all of us, Who is truly in control. Fully placing the future in God’s hands, we return back to the present moment. The present moment, that holy instant in time where the ego’s delusions dissolve before our light, love and understanding. Today, any time that we are choosing our loving essence and nature over the ego’s tools and mindset, we are in essence declaring our independence from the ego’s rule.
Today, let us become more consciously aware of what actions keep us imprison within the ego’s mindset, and what actions help us declare independence from the ego’s rule. A few of the actions that keep us imprison within the ego’s mindset are those of judgment, anger and resentment. When imprison within the ego’s mindset we experience conflict, confusion and chaos. When we declare independence from the ego, we consciously reject its demands and instead choose to align with and be guided by, our eternal loving essence and nature. Peace of mind, joy, the ability to forgive, gratitude for the present moment, and trusting in God, are some of the actions of one who is living free from the ego’s rule. Choosing forgiveness over judgment, compassion over anger, peace over resentment, and trusting God over anxiousness, are all signs of one who has declared his or her independence from the ego’s rule.
