Today, let us leave the harden, desolate and lonely world that the ego has taught us to judge and fight, and like little children return to the hidden playground within our hearts and minds. Today, let us remember that this world is, in every moment, but a creation of our mind, a reflection of what we choose to value, focus on and support. Choose to see a playground, and you will play and make dear friends of all those who you meet alone the way, or choose to see it as a war zone, and you will fight and defend yourself till your last dying breath. Today, no matter how much war the ego demands, let us like little children, laugh away and overlook its silly requests to judge and fight our brothers and sisters, and instead make the conscious choice to play with all those that God has brought into our presence. If we, in every moment, thanks to God’s gift of free will, have the choice between war and play, why would we ever not choose play? Maybe it’s because, we have actually forgotten that play is a choice we can, in every single moment, make. Maybe it’s because we have forgotten that God is Love and All, and thus that the choice to play, is always available to us. Are peace, joy, love, forgiveness, compassion, kindness, generosity, trust and charity, among many others, not all symbols of the idea that we can always choose play over war? Imagine, the type of world that you would begin to create, not only for yourself, but also for your children, if you allow yourself the possibility that God’s playground is always but a simple choice away. Imagine, teaching your children to simply play nice with everyone they encounter, and then your children, perfectly understanding the idea of play, simply doing what they naturally do, play. Play, and all of Love’s expressions, when we align with them, are all symbols that we are choosing God’s playground over the ego’s battlefields.
We have been given free will by our Creator, and thus we can always choose what kind of game we choose to play. Today, let us choose to play the games of peace and joy, of hope and healing, for all these, as extensions of the game of Love, are what we were all naturally created to play. Today, when the ego tries to take away our joy filled game time, and in its place demands that we declare war on a playground friend, we will overlook the silliness of such a request, and continue to play with our friend. Today, everyone we meet is our friend. Today, everyone we meet, is one that God has brought to us to play. Today, let us understand that everyone we meet, is here to show us how peaceful, loving and joyful, this world can be. Today, with a childlike innocence, we leave the door open for the possibility, that we do not fully comprehend, nor can truly interpret or appreciate, the wholeness of creation, nor what exact part we and others have come here to play. What a relief, not to have to carry the heavy burdensome weight of judgment, not to have to make sense out of the seemingly senseless, while still knowing that there is Someone, a Mother/Father figure in our corner, who truly cares, loves and protects us, and whose only purpose is our good. Trusting this, we release the thousand ways we have been programmed by the ego to battle each other, and instead place the present moment fully in His hands, and play. How easy today becomes, when we place the present moment fully in His hands, trust that He is taking care of us, and that all we need do is play. Imagine, choosing to practice aligning more and more of your day with this child-like mindset, what kind of life would you begin to shape, create and experience?
Today, anytime we catch ourselves seeing God’s children through judgment’s eyes, through anything other than with peace, joy, love, forgiveness, compassion, kindness, generosity, trust and charity, we simply make the conscious choice to hand over all of our imaginary weapons of judgments to our personal Guardian, and continue our play. In doing so, the thousand false pictures of who the ego has tried to replace God’s children with will dissolve, and in their place our sisters and brothers will once again stand, becoming our joyful playmates in this game call life. Oh, what a precious gift we have been given today, a chance to return to the playground that God has created for us, to play and play, until finally, fully exhausted, we fall back asleep in our Father’s arms. Imagine, truly believing that the decision to play is always but a simply childlike choice away. Imagine, no matter the battlefields that the ego places before you, that God’s playground, is always available to you, and forever just a choice away. Today, let us choose to play, because in truth there is no other more normal, fun and desired choice for the children of God. Your child-self, that part of you that has not been corrupted by the delusions of the ego’s world, is who you in truth are and have always been. This is who in truth all your brothers and sisters are, God’s children, playing in the playground that He created for them. Today, let us make the conscious decision, that we will no longer judge, nor battle against, God’s children. Today, no more tears need to ever again fall on a playground, that you have so lovingly co-created with God, and with all of His children.
Today, how hard can a day like this be, if all we are being ask to do, is play. Play with the children that God has brought to the park for you to play with. Today, anytime that the ego demands that you judge and battle with your friends instead of play, simply overlook the silliness of such a request, and continue your play. Let us remember, that thanks to free will, the moment is ours to do what we will, and not what the ego demands. Our natural way is to play, for as Love’s creations, being loving is our most natural game. Today, do not take so-called mistakes so harshly. If you forget your goal for the day, if you unconsciously allow judgment of self and others to enter your mind, laugh at such a silly thought, simply see it as a sign that you are forgetting to play, and then get back to playing, to being God’s child, to being who you were created to be.
