Today, when the ego’s programming wants us to critic others or ourselves, let us instead be grateful and remember, what wonderful growth opportunities, such moments have to offer us. Imagine, being given the opportunities to practice releasing, letting go, and no longer carrying the burden, of who you are not. Imagine, spending less and less time supporting thoughts, words, emotions and actions, that you now know don’t support you. Imagine, finally being able to, because of these opportunities, become self-aware enough to more consciously align with the states of peace and joy, and thus to become this peaceful and joyful example for others. What else but gratitude, could you feel for such opportunities? What else but gratitude, could others express to you, for showing them a way out of the misery and chaos that the ego’s judgment based mindset has programmed into them as true. It is not hard to see and recognize when we are stuck in the ego’s program, being our programmed-self. The ego’s program places itself in opposition to God, to Love, and so anytime you are experiencing or expressing something that seems to be in opposition to love, then know that you have bought into your programmed-self as true. Your true-self will always be a reflection of the Love that is your Source and Creator. Your Source is Love and All, thus love is all that your true-self could ever be. There can in truth never be an opposition to God, to Love, therefore in truth you could never be anything other than the Love that you were created to be. Thus, anytime you are experiencing anything other than love, you are simply experiencing the false as true. It is when you have bought into the ego’s program, that the false is true, that you will become confuse and not truly understand, or be at peace with, what is really going on.
Our programmed-self critics and judges others and ourselves, not because we are less spiritual or bad people, but because it has become a bad habit. We have bought into a false behavior, repeated over time, and now think of it, and see it, as a natural way of being. Equally so, when we react with anger, resentment, and hate, it is again not because we are selfish or evil, but because we have been programmed to believe in the ego’s lies about ourselves and others as true. Our programmed-self makes us feel anxious, worried, and stress out, not because we are not peaceful beings, but because it has convinced us that we can not fully trust in God’s plan for us. The ego wants us trusting in it, not God. This gives the ego control and power over us. Our programmed-self is not vicious by nature, it is simply forgetful; it simply desires to live, and its main weapon to keep itself alive within us, is to try to make us forget who in truth we are. No longer waste your time judging yourself or others simply because you have forgotten your true nature, instead be grateful and take such opportunities to help you better understand what the ego’s con games are. The more aware we can become of the ego’s con games, the quicker we can stop them when they are trying to convince us that its lies are true. The less time we spend in servitude to the ego, the less power our programmed-self will have over us. As the power of the programmed-self diminishes, cracks will begin to appear in its mindset. It is through these cracks that our light can begin to once again seep through. The more light seeps through, the greater our understanding and self-awareness. The more self-aware we become, the less need we will have for our programmed-self and any of the ego’s con games.
Today, let us use all opportunities that the programmed-self offers us, not to judge ourselves or others, but to practice consciously stopping it and letting go of hurtful, painful, and unloving habits that no longer serve us. The more we are able to let go of what is not serving us, serving our healing, growth and awakening, the more we will heal, grow and awaken. Today, when the con games of the programmed-self pop up, such as those of doubt, anxiousness, or worry, and they once again try to deceive and consume us, let us no longer sacrifice our time to the ego’s useless mindset, in feeling fearful or in distress, instead let us, with compassion, trust in God and gratitude, see our beliefs in these con games as a bad habit that needs to be corrected, that and nothing else. Today, let us not curse ourselves, nor get upset by our bad habits, let us simply smile at the ego’s deceptive efforts, gently and lovingly correct our misperceptions, and continue on our sacred way. Today, when a bad habit pops up, instead of judging ourselves, let us say to ourselves: “I no longer support the ego’s programming and lies as my real-self. My real-self is not confusion, but clarity. My real-self is not judgment but forgiveness; my real-self does not desire to become an example of pain but of peace. I today thank every single moment that offers me the opportunities to practice remembering my true nature and releasing the illusions that I hold of myself and others that hold me a captive within the ego’s mindset. Today, I set myself free, because I have remembered that I was created to be free, from Freedom Himself. Freedom Who Is Love, desires that I only offer others who in truth I am. I am His child, His creation, extension and expression, His love, hope, joy, peace, and understanding.”
Today, let us practice becoming more consciously aware of the difference between our program-self and our true-self. Our program-self or ego-self is the opposite of our true-self. Our true-self is the Love that God created us to be, it is who we have in truth always been, are now, and will always be. Our programmed-self is the false-self, false because it tries to stand in opposition to The Truth, to Love who is God and All. Our programmed-self being in opposition to All, is nothing, not real, and only appears to be real within the mindset of the ego’s fairy tale. The ego’s fairy tale supports anything that seems to be in opposition to our loving nature, to Love and all of its expressions. Today, let us no longer support and thus reinforce the false in us as true. We do so, by only supporting, with our time, focus and energy, our loving expressions, our truth as true. Everything within our minds, that supports the program-self, that believes it is apart from Love, is what we look to starve off today, for what is not Love is not us, is not real, and we are forever real because Reality Himself created us.
