Imagine the love, peace of mind and joy, you could experience if you forgave the past, placed the future in God’s hands, and chose to once again return to the now or present moment. The now is the holy instant, a moment that is free from past judgments or future imaginings. How would breaking yourself free from the chains of your past programming and the worries about your future make you feel? Imagine, the past and future no longer pestering you simply because you are only fully focused on the now. Such a Heavenly state of mind, through the gift of free will, is always just a simple choice away. Anytime you align with any of Love’s expressions, you align with the now. It is in the eternal now where all of God’s gifts forever reside. It is the present moment that is your true home. You are not meant to live in the past nor in the future, for if you did, then that is where you would be. You are meant to live right here right now, because this is where God and we need you. It is only right here right now, that you can exercise true choice. No longer choose to drag the ego’s past programming onto the present moment, for this only obscures what is really going on. All that the present moment is – is God’s Love, and so that all that you can in truth do within the now, is to be and express your loving nature. If you are expressing anything other than your loving nature, then let that be a signal to you that you are either being held hostage to the past or worrying about the future. Today, notice that when you are not at peace, being loving and joyful, it is usually because your mind and thinking are stuck somewhere repeating the past patterns, or fretting about the future. Today, forgive the past and place the future in God’s hands. Do so, and the now, the state of peace, will once again become your home.
Today, if you once again find yourself somewhere other than within the now, do not despair. Do not judge yourself or others as less than, not wise or spiritual enough. Simply realize that your feelings of frustration and resentment result from being focused on the past, and your anxiousness and stress result from being focused on the future. Now learn to catch yourself in such instances, and use them as signaling devices, that alert you that you are out of alignment with your desired destination. Use such times when you feel chained to the past or are fretting about the future, as your own personal alarm clock. Now, such instances are in essence alerting you to awaken to the realization that where you are you need not be. Today, listen when the alarm clock sounds, and when it does, awaken, and return home to the now. Simply forgive the past, place the future in God’s hands, and return to the now. When you forgive another, you are in truth only forgiving the programming that taught you how to judge in the first place. You are in essence forgiving yourself for your misperception of God’s creation. Your brothers and sisters can only ever in truth be the love that God created them to be. Love never needs to be forgiven, for forgiveness is itself an expression of Love. Forgiveness is the understanding and realization that only the love in another is ever true or real. By forgiving, you break the chains that hold you captive to your past programs. Forgiveness is a way of saying to and sharing with another, that you have awaken to the realization that only the truth in them is true, and that because we are all One, that only Love in all of us is true.
Today, let us dedicate our time to practice returning back to the now. The past is forever gone, unless of course we through free will, choose to drag it onto the now. The future is also but forever only in our imaginations, and thus again only obscures the now, when we through free will, choose to value it’s fairy tales more than the present moment. When we are in the present moment, we are activating our free will, because we have placed aside our past programming and future imagining. It is then that we are truly free to be who we came here to be. When we are not in the present moment, we are unconscious within consciousness, zombie like or robotic in nature. We are in essence only doing what the past has programmed us to do, or thinking about a future that does not exist. Today, let us practice using free will, to let go of past judgments and future imaginings. Just as forgiveness, is the tool that frees us from the past, so to is trusting in God’s plan, the tool that will free us from the future. Today, let us use these tools to return to the present moment, so that we may fulfill our function here on Earth. When we are in the now, a sense of fulfillment will be felt, because we are in essence focusing on and doing, what we have come here to focus on and do. When we are not in the present moment, a lack of fulfillment will be felt, because we are focusing on and doing the ego’s will, not ours which the One that we co-creation with God. We need not put ourselves down for choosing the ego over God. All we need do is, without judgment realize what we are doing, gently correct our course, and return our focus to the now.
Today, let us practice returning to the now by doing two things: First, let us learn to forgive the past. Second, let us learn to place the future fully in God’s hands. When we learn to use these two tools, the past and future are gone, and all that then exist is the eternal now, the present moment, where God’s gifts forever reside. The now is your true home. The present moment is, through your loving nature, what you have come here to return others to. You have come here to through forgiveness, free those who through judgement, are chained to their past. You have come here to help and teach those who live worried and stressed out, that by trusting in God, they can find their way to peace. You are here as the light of the world, that is your function. You are here to help others see the world as God create it for them to experience, one where freedom, peace and joy, reign supreme.
