We have tried to deal with our problems in dozens of different ways. Then, as soon as we do, dozens of other problems pop up insisting that they also must be solved in order for us to have peace of mind and joy. Is it any wonder why the ego’s “solutions” to our confusion make us feel frustrated, tired and stressed out? Feeling frustrated, tired and stressed out are all symptoms of one who believes that an illusionary set of tools can solve our delusional thinking. There is no need to judge and punish self and others for thinking that the ego’s dream is real. That behavior would only feed and fuel the dream. Instead, let us realize that those who feel this way do so because they have been taught to see, interact with and participate in the ego’s fairy tale as real. Once you close the book on the ego’s fairy tale, all its symbolic dragons will fade away back into the nothingness from which they came. The ego would have you buy into dozens of different reasons why judging yourself or others is the right, proper and appropriate response. Yet what the ego hides from you is that none of its reasons and ‘solutions’ will ever bring you the true everlasting peace of mind and joy you seek. The ego, its tools and mindset, can never bring you true everlasting peace of mind and joy, because the ego being nothing, can only offer you what it is. Peace of mind and joy are both aspects and expressions of Love, and thus to find and experience them you must head in Love’s direction. When you place your faith in the ego instead of God, what you are saying is: “I do not trust in the journey that I or others have co-created with the Creator of the universe.” In essence you are saying: “I do not trust God.” You will never find true peace of mind or joy as long as you mistrust the plan you yourself have co-designed with God. Your mistrust of God is the birthplace of judgment. It is from this state of mind where stress, anxiety and anger, are projected from.
How much longer will we allow the blind to lead us, and then complain that we have fallen into the same ditch as them? How much longer must we keep running away from the monsters in our dreams? How much longer must we afraid, hide under the covers, and then complain that it is too hot and stuffy in there? When will enough finally be enough? When will we stop using the ego’s delusions of judgment, stress, anxiety and anger, and then wonder why they don’t bring us the real peace and joy we want? When will we decide to stop using what is not working for us? If you are here now reading these lines, then know that the time to stop reacting to the ego’s nightmares has come. If you had not chosen to awaken, then you would not be here, reading this now. Let us together awaken my friend; we have all slept long enough. It is now time to begin creating lives where forgiveness, not judgment, is our foundation. Lives where our trust in God overrules any of our stresses and worries. Lives where peace of mind and joy are valued more, and chosen over, anger and pain. Have you and those around you not suffered long enough under the ego’s rule? When will you awaken to the realization that every ego response, no matter how logical it in the moment says it is, is a delusion, deception and a lie? How much longer do you need to punish yourself for valuing the ego’s tools and mindset over God’s love for you and for all His children? Have you not tossed and turned long enough at night? No longer despair, for it is now time for all of us to awaken. It is now time to close the book on all that you have tried that has never worked for you. It is now time let go of the childish judgment centered games that have kept us imprison within the ego’s delusional world.
Today, let us decide to play the ego’s childish games no longer. Today, when the ego tries to have us paint judgment with dozens of different faces, let us decline such silliness and recall that there are not dozens of different solutions for judgment, there is only one, forgive. When the ego has us form dozens of scenarios where stress and anxiety bull their way through our life, let us recall that there is only one way up and out of the ego’s maze, and that is to trust God more. When the ego has us write dozens of different scripts that play within our minds, that have anger, hate, resentment and revenge, as its actors, let us recall that there is only one way out of its fantasies, and that is to awaken from them. Today, there is only one true and peaceful ending, one happily ever after, and that is to learn to love our neighbors as ourselves. If you desire true clarity, peace of mind and joy, then you must turn towards the Light, and not away from it. Clarity, peace of mind and joy, are signs of one who is in alignment with their eternal essence and nature, with the truth in them. The true treasure and freedom resides within you, and not in the ego’s dreams, delusions and fantasies. Let us no longer be willing to waste away our lives worshipping and laying sacrifices at, the ego’s altar. Let us finally close the book on the ego’s fairy tale and begin to focus on what we have come here to do. We are here to be a way-shower, a light, a walking physical expression and representative of the Love that is our Creator. This is our true mission. How we achieve our mission will be unique to us, and to the individualize gifts we hold within. The more we focus on and share the expressions of the Love that lives within us, the sooner the ego’s so-called solutions will begin to dissolve before our light and understanding.
Today, let us put an end to trying to rationalize our judgment, stress, anxiety and anger. Today, no matter how many times the ego tries to convince us that ‘now,’ ‘in this situation,’ ‘with this specific person,’ is the time to use its tools and mindset, let us no longer blindly take the ego’s bait. Today, let us no longer allow the blind to continue to lead the blind. Today, let us stop traveling the ego’s dead end roads that we now know, thanks to our life experience, only lead us to more confusion, pain, chaos and regret. We have the scars to prove that we have fought in the ego’s battlefields long enough. It’s time for peace. It’s time to place our lives fully in God’s hands and trust that His plan is perfect, and perfect for us. Now, understanding God’s plan as perfect, what further need would we have for judgment, stress, anxiety and anger, of any kind?
