The ideas of coincidence, chance and luck, are all fabrications of the ego, used to try to separate us from the Divine knowledge, that each step along our sacred path, has been co-designed with God, in order to help remind us, of who we truly are. Everything that happens during our day, we have consciously or unconsciously brought into our experience, in order to help lift us to a higher level of consciousness. Therefore every moment in reality is, a gift that we are presenting to each other. Gratitude, not judgment, is thus the appropriate and rational response to such gifts. Imagine, beginning to shift your perceptions of the present moment, from those that are focus mainly on judging of self and others, anger, resentment and thoughts of revenge, to one where it is understood, that every moment, is being offer to you, to help you reach a more peaceful, joyful and loving place, in your life. If seen in this manner, would you not begin to see each moment, as a gift from the Universe to you, here to help you heal and become more self-aware? Would this understanding and conscious shift in perception, not begin to raise you to a higher level of consciousness? God being Love and All, each and every experience, is here for your good, and being used by God to help you heal and awaken. Trust this one thought as true, and begin to shift your mindset, from one of being a victim of the world you see, to one of being a conscious co-creator of it. If in any moment, your response to it is gratitude, know that you are awakening to its true nature. When you understand the moment for the gift that it is, you stop asking “why” or “why me,” and start answering the moment with “Thank you”. When you are grateful for the moment, let this be a symbol to you, that your trust in your Creator is growing. Peace of mind and joy are both expressions and result from, your trust in your Creator.
What if, instead of going into the present moment, in a typical ego defense mode, we went into it with wonderment and a complete trust in God? What if, we went into it saying to ourselves: “What is occurring right now, in this very moment, is here as a gift from God to me, here to help me reach a higher level of consciousness.” We may also say to ourselves something like: “How can I, right now, consciously choose to shift my perception, so that I may see this very moment and experience, not through the ego’s eyes of fear and scarcity, but with God’s eyes of love and abundance?” Let us today remember, that because of free will, it is we, and only we, who have the final say of how we will interpret, react to, and participate in, the present moment. We will always reap what we sow. If we consciously or unconsciously choose to participate in the present moment through the fear and scarcity mindset, then those will be the emotions that will color our experience. Yet if, in that very same situation, we consciously choose to see, and participate in it, with the energies of love and abundance as our guides, then they, will be the energies, that will color our experience. What else but gratitude could you have to God for the gift of free will? Free will allows you to experience your life, exactly as you think that you need to. Do not concern yourself with comparing your growth to others, for we will all reach our destination at the appointed hour. When you choose not to judge others’ experiences, what you are really saying is: “God, I trust You with the way my brothers and sisters are choosing to grow. I trust You, and in doing so, I find peace. It is this alignment with the state of peace, that will help awaken me to who I truly am.”
Today, let us make the conscious choice, to start noticing how many times during the day, we are given the opportunities to lift ourselves up, to a higher level of consciousness. As we begin to notice, how basically all experiences, in one way, shape or form, are inviting us to awaken to who we truly are, our gratitude for each of these moments and people involve, grows. As our understanding grows our gratitude towards our Source grows. For example, when another acts out in a manner that the ego has programmed you to think is worthy of judgment, and thus loss of peace results, no longer accept this as a proper response to God’s child. Instead, stop and remember, that you have traveled judgment’s dead end roads a hundred of times before, and you already know that they take you nowhere that you desire to be. Then, understanding that each moment is a gift from God to you, look for the gift in that moment, until you find it and are grateful for the opportunity. The opportunity will always help lift you to higher level of consciousness. Imagine, what a gift each moment can become, when you remember that the ego’s fear base responses are not in alignment with your true loving nature. Today, make the conscious choice to align with your loving nature and lift yourself up above the ego’s battlefields. By doing so, you will serve as an example to others, that achieving a higher level of self-awareness, is always just a choice away. Today, let us become an example of our loving nature. Simply by becoming who we were created to be, we will provide a great service to humanity. We will help bring light back into the darkness, and peace back to those who have for so long, suffer in unawareness and pain.
Today, let us practice viewing each moment, not as some random event that has nothing of true value to offer us, but as a gift from God, created to help us become more self-aware, and lift us to a higher level of consciousness. Let us also look upon all our brothers and sisters, not as some separate beings that are in our life by coincidence, chance or accident, but as courageous volunteers who have come into our experience, with specific tasks in mind, that will help us realize who in truth we are. Let us practice responding to every moment and everyone involved in those moments, with these two words: “Thank you”. When we respond with appreciation to the present moment, let that be a symbol to us, that our minds are in alignment with the Mind of God. When our minds are One with God’s Mind, that shows us, that we have lifted ourselves, to a higher level of consciousness. It is this higher level of consciousness, united with the energy of Love, where we forever belong, and have come here to help lift others towards.
