When this world tries to imprison you in anger, hold you captive with resentment, and punish you with the burden of revenge, recall that this world is simply a reflection and physical representation of the thoughts you think. Thus, it is not this world, but the thoughts that you hold about this world, that are holding you hostage. In the end it is only you, through your own thoughts, who can hold yourself hostage or set yourself free. The external environment itself is neutral. Its neutrality is broken by how you choose to define it. Your perceptions and reactions to your environment are simply compositions and combinations of beliefs that you have consented to as being normal, real and acceptable. Nothing or no one that is “outside” of you can make you feel angry, resentful, regretful, revengeful or disheartened without your permission, without your decision to become so. It is you who holds the power to see pain or peace in all things. Today, recognize the power that you have over your own thoughts. Do so and you will start to see, feel and understand, the true power you hold over the world that you see and experience. Be no longer a slave to the ego’s judgment centered fear based past programming. That past programming that has brought you nothing but disappointment, regret, anxiousness, punishment and pain. Today, let go of your programming by recalling that you are God’s creation, and that we are all One. Being all One, all Love’s creations, we are all worthy of a non-judgmental, peaceful and joyful, experience on this planet. This Love is who in truth you are, this is who in truth your brothers and sisters are. Think about how you would want your children to be treated, remind yourself that we are all God’s children, and then treat all His children as yours.
Today, when you are failing to see the power you have over the world you see, ask yourself: “Whose truth am I following?” Only truth is true, and there is only one truth, that God is Love and All. If you are not seeing, sharing and experiencing Love, and Love’s expressions in this world, such as those of forgiveness, compassion, joy and peace, then know that you are not aligned with Truth, which is the truth in you. If you are not aligned with the truth, it is simply because you are seeing things as the ego has programmed you to see them. You are in essence seeing this world through the ego’s eyes and mindset, not yours. Is it any wonder why you may be feeling confused, off balance and out of place? Everything that you are seeing that is not in some way, shape or form, Love, is a mirage. You need not judge yourself or others for thinking the mirage is real. You simply need to experience it long enough to see and understand, that what you think you are seeing, is not really true or real. Your true eternal beauty, your radiance and loving essence and nature, is all that is in truth real. Make the conscious decision to see only your truth as true, and the light of clarity will begin to shine from within you and unto all you see. Every single interaction that you have with a fellow human being, is an opportunity that you are being offered, in order to recall and radiate, who in truth you are. Let us be grateful that everything and everyone that is place on our path, is there to help us recall who in truth we are. Every moment this world is reflecting in a million different seeming forms. Yet they are all here to help us release ourselves and escape from the ego’s fairy tale, and awaken to the truth within. Today, let us through every interaction we have, offer only our light. By doing so, we will help others begin to recall the truth in them, the power that they also have over the world they see.
Today, when you think you see an adversity that seems to bring you down, or imagine you hear a negative voice within your head or in the outer world that takes away your peace, do not judge yourself or others. Instead, simply and gently realize that you are experiencing the world in this manner because you are allowing the ego to think and see for you. You are in essence allowing the ego to live your life for you. Today, take your life back from the ego by saying to the ego’s delusions: “That is a lie! I am and will always be God’s perfect loving creation, and because we are all One, so too are all my brothers and sisters perfect. We are all perfect because Perfection created us. God, being Perfection, does not create imperfectly. I now make the conscious decision to wholeheartedly trust in God’s creation. By doing so, I now know that all that I am experiencing, thinking, feeling and seeing, is for my highest good. All of my experience is my co-creation with God, is here to help me grow, heal and awaken. I today thank my brothers and sisters for helping me recall who in truth I am. I am and will always be who my Creator created me to be. I am now, and forever will be, the Love that God is, the Love that God created me to be.” Then visualize and fill yourself with God’s loving white light. Feel this light overflowing from within you, and lighting and loving everything and everyone you think of or look upon. Any negative thought that now pops up in your head, stop it and recall, that you control your thoughts, your thoughts should not be controlling you. Then thank the ego for the opportunity to recall that it is you, not it, who is in control of your thoughts, and thus of your experience. It is you who can stop negative thoughts. It is you who can correct and forgive your misperceptions. It is you who can set yourself free from a delusional mindset that no longer serves you.
Today, let us recall that God is Love and All. If we ourselves are not being loving, then it is not the truth in us who is living our lives. It is actually the ego and its judgment and fear based mindset that is living it for us. If the ego is living our lives for us, then we have no true power or control over the world we see. This is why we feel off balance, fearful, powerless and out of control. Today, if you feel this way, choose to no longer judge yourself or others. Instead, realize what is really happening, and start taking back control of your thoughts, mind and life. You do so by first forgiving ‘your’ misperceptions of the world. Aligned with non-judgment you remind yourself that only the Love in you, and because we are all One, all others, is real. Then share the truth in you, Love and its expressions, in whatever ways the moment is requesting it.
