We do a lot more ‘acting’ during our day than we realize. In fact, every time we react with anger, judgment, stress, envy, jealousy, resentment or hate, we are acting. It is tiring trying to be who we are not. All that we are not, yet who we have been programmed by the ego to think we are, is a giant learning feat. Once we begin to recognize what we have taught ourselves, we will never again question our power to learn any part we choose to play. We have put on masks, have lost ourselves in an actor’s part within the ego’s play, and have forgotten who we truly are. We have for so long played the ego’s fantasy role, that we now don’t even question or even recall that it is a fantasy, written by a fake playwright that has never understood our true nature. The ego’s fairy tale directs those who have lost their way, those who have forgotten who in truth they are. The more we act a certain way, the more real this way of being becomes. The more real it seems to be, the more we come to its defense. Just as an actor becomes more comfortable the more he rehearses his part, so to do we become more comfortable with the behaviors, actions and reactions, that we support as real. We have practiced the ego’s part endlessly, until we made “truths” out of illusions. Do not underestimate what you and your ego have fabricated. Anytime that you are not at peace, joyous, compassionate, forgiving and loving, it is because you are buying into the part that the ego has designed for you. The world you see is the world that you, through your learning, acting and reinforcement, have made. It is the world as you have taught yourself that it is. How difficult is a world where anger, judgment, stress, envy, jealousy, resentment or hate, are supported as real parts of your character? How much longer must you act in the ego’s destructive and self-destructive play? Have you not tired of the ego’s role for you?
Always remember, that free will, is your way out of any part you are currently playing, that you no longer desire to play. Free will was gifted to you in your creation. It is a gift that was given to you way before you put on the ego’s mask and started acting. You never, thanks to free will, need to continue playing a part that is only hurting you and those around you. If you are not offering to yourself and others peace, joy, kindness, forgiveness and love, then know that you are, in one form or another, acting. You are your Creator’s loving creation. Love is the truth in you. Anytime you are not radiating and expressing this love, in any of the numerous ways Love manifest itself, then you are playing the ego’s role for you. No longer put yourself or others down for being anything other than loving. Instead, calmly realize what is truly happening. You have for a moment in time, fallen into the ego’s trap. You have bought into the part that the ego has programmed you to play. Now, recognize how out of alignment that part is with the loving truth in you. Recall who you in truth are, God’s loving creation. Recall that God is All, and thus that only the love in you is real and true. If the part you are playing is not in total alignment with the loving truth in you, then it is you, who through free will, who must make the conscious decision to exit the ego’s stage. You exit the ego’s stage, not by dying, but through the death of your character. Exit, leave behind all that is not supportive and in alignment with your truth, with your eternal loving essence and nature. Do so, and your unconscious need and desire to continue to play the ego’s role, will mercifully end.
Today, go ahead, take your final bow. You have played the ego’s part long enough. Support the lie in you no longer. This lie is your ego, the false-self, an illusionary concept of yourself that you have been programmed to believe is real. Choose to no longer support your false-self as real. Only the false in you needs the ego’s part and play. The truth in you simply needs to be allowed to be who he or she was created to be. Truth is already All, and what is true in you has always been true, is true now, and will forever be true. The truth in you is simply awaiting you to make the conscious decision to choose it. Your truth will lovingly and patiently wait for however long you choose to act in the ego’s play. Today, let us make the conscious choice to act no longer. Let us finally put down our masks, take a bow, exit the stage, and become the loving light filled beings that we were created to be. This choice is our true gift to this world. The choice to become the physical examples, expressions and representatives of Love, of our Creator. We are here to light the way for all those who are also desiring to put down the ego’s mask. We are here to help those who want to find the eternal light within. Be patient, compassionate and understanding, with yourself and others, knowing the your final bow is near. As you do, peace, love and joy, will begin to radiate from you, creating a beautiful and ever increasing circle of compassion. Your circle of compassion will then grow until it begins to encompass all you see and meet. As your circle grows to include all, you will begin to recall that in truth we are all One. We are One with each other and our Creator, and that neither God nor anyone else has ever, nor will ever, leave our side.
Today, let us practice recognizing when we are on the ego’s stage. Anytime we are being judgmental, angry, worried, stressed, envious, jealous, resentful or hateful, we are acting, playing the ego’s part. Anytime that we are not offering the truth within us, our peaceful, joyous, compassionate, forgiving and loving nature, let us simply recognize that we are on the ego’s stage. Why continue to play a part, that we now know, we no longer want? Why continue to work for the ego, who only brings us judgment, suffering and pain? God has gifted us free will. We can step of the ego’s stage anytime that we so choose to. All we need do is to recognize that we are aligned with a mindset that does not represent the truth in us. This is what our interactions with others are helping us see, when we are playing someone we are not. Today, let us take off our masks, and thank all those who are offering us the opportunities to finally exit the ego’s stage.
