Today, when the ego once again demands that you act and react by judging self and others, with anger and resentment, do not despair, do not continue to swim in the ego’s swamp, simply stop that line of thinking, take a moment, and ask yourself: “What has blindly following the ego’s mindset ever brought to my life? How does the ego’s thought system truly make me feel when I use it? How much longer am I going to support a thought system that only poisons me with my own thoughts?” Today, it is by first making the conscious decision to stop and question the ego’s thought process, that we begin to remove its experience from our existence. Anytime that the ego demands judgment, anger and resentment, but we instead make the conscious decision to decline such requests, and offer the opposite of its recommendations, such as those of forgiveness instead of judgment, compassion instead of anger, and understanding instead of resentment, we are participating in dismantling the ego’s programming. When we begin to dismantle the ego’s programs, what we are doing is taking our power back, taking back control of our own minds. The ego itself, being in opposition to God Who Is All, is in truth nothing. The only power that the ego can ever have over us, is the power that we ourselves have, unconscious as it may be, given to it. Anytime we are acting from a place of fear, we are doing what the ego has programmed us to do. It is by us spending our time, focus and energy, on doing what it demands, that gives the ego its power over us. The good news in this is, that if it is we who have given away our power, then it is also we who can take it back. We are no longer children, we need not support the ego’s fairy tales as more real and valuable than God’s Love. Today, when in doubt about what to do, choose to place your bets on Love instead of fear, and it will be such a conscious choice, that will lift you above and beyond the ego’s battlefields.
We have unconsciously dedicated a large part of our lives to learning the ego’s thought system, its mindset. We have fought and defended this mindset as true, as us, over and over again. We have lost family, friends, relationships and maybe even part of ourselves, to it. We have been hurt, punished, ridiculed, for putting it on a pedestal. But now, up there on the pedestal, it stands alone, and in this loneliness and sense of separation from others, we are starting to see how truly unlike it is to our hopes, desires, passions, and dreams. We are starting to see that it brings us no peace to keep trying to defend it and its tools of judgment, anger and resentment, as proper, natural and normal behaviors. No, there is nothing proper, natural and normal, about the ego’s mindset. We are starting to notice, that its need to be right, is now not as important to us, as our desire to be happy. We are starting to truly feel the difference between, its judgments of self and others and forgiveness, and we are finding forgiveness more and more appealing each day. We are noticing that the ego’s anger brings us nothing but pain, and that compassion, which is the opposite of anger, is what we truly desire to experience. We are noticing how corrosive our focus on resentment is, and we no longer desire to have this feeling destroy us from within. All this is helping us see, that the undoing of the ego’s thought system, can and is occurring. Do not despair when your progress towards peace seems slow, for we are indeed in the process of letting go of the ego’s illusionary mindset. The distance to the finish line is not far from here. All you now need recall is, that you desire to be an example to others of God’s truth, instead of the ego’s lies. All you need now do, is to remember that your Creator being Love only creates lovingly, and then choose to create as Divinity does.
Today, let us see all our brothers and sisters as allies, not adversaries, in the undoing of the ego’s thought system, and thus in our awakening process. It is thanks to their participation in our experience, that we are getting to see, what areas of our lives, we have given our power away to the ego. Any and every time we use judgment of self and others, anger and resentment, we now know that these are all symbols, that the ego’s programs are in control. When we find ourselves using any of the many of the tools of the ego, let us recall, that it is we, our loving nature, who should be in control of our minds, and not the ego. The more we get to practice catching ourselves when we are unconsciously allowing the ego to rule over us, the sooner we can start stepping away from and disavowing this behavior. Today, let us be grateful to all those in our lives, who are helping us see, when we are lost in ego’s fear based fairy tale. Let us thank them for helping us realize how different the ego’s mindset is to our true loving nature, and with this wisdom, knowledge and life experience, by our side, let us consciously choose the fairy tale no longer. Now, understanding the role that our brothers and sisters are playing in our awakening, let us offer them, before any interaction, this thought and prayer: “From the bottom of my heart, from deep within my soul, thank you for helping me, through our interactions with each other, practice undoing the ego’s thought system, and thus reminding me of who I truly am. Today, together, we heal. I now, above every fear base thought that I have been programmed with, consciously choose to offer and align with forgiveness, compassion and understanding. I now consciously choose to take back control of my thoughts, words and actions, by supporting, with my time, focus and energy, the Love that created me. I now only offer God’s Love to you, because both you and I are worthy of experiencing it, and having it bless and embrace us, throughout our days and lives. Thank you my brother and sister for your presence in my life, thank you God. Amen”
Today, let our goal be threefold: First, to catch ourselves when we are supporting the ego’s thought system as real. Second, to stop fueling it with our time, focus and energy. Third, to consciously switch to a Love based mindset. Judgment, anger and resentment, or any other thought, word, emotion and action, that places itself in opposition to Love, these we now know as symbols of the ego’s mindset. When the symbols of the ego’s mindset are what we are using to interact with self or another, let us now understand, that it is the ego who is in control of our thinking, not us. If the ego is in control of our thinking, then it is in control of our lives, in essence living our lives for us. We will know when we are in control, because our thoughts, words emotions and actions, will be aligned with the Love that created us. Let us also not put ourselves or others down when Love seems not to be leading us, instead let us use such opportunities, to recognize that it is not our Truth who is in control, and then gently, by aligning with Love, start to take back control of our own minds.
