When this world tries to imprison you in anger, hold you captive with resentment and regret, and punish you with disappointment and thoughts of revenge, recall that this world is simply a reflection and physical representation of the thoughts that you value, support and entertain as real within your own mind. Thus, it is not this world, but the thoughts that you hold about this world, that are truly holding you hostage. In the end, it is only you, through your own thoughts, who can hold yourself hostage, and thus it is only you, who can set yourself free. The external environment itself is neutral; its neutrality is broken by your perception and reaction to it. Your perceptions and reactions are simply compositions and combinations of beliefs that you have consented to as normal, real, and acceptable. Nothing or no one that is ‘outside’ of you can make you feel angry, resentful, regretful, revengeful or dishearten, without your conscious or unconscious permission. It is you who holds the power to see the truth in all things, by first recognizing it in yourself. As you recognize the power that you have over your own thoughts, you will start to see, feel and understand, the true power you hold over the world you see. Be no longer a slave to your past programming, that past programming that has brought you nothing but sadness, regret, punishment, and pain. Recall that you are God’s creation, that we are all One, and so start making the conscious decision, in every moment, to treat yourself and others, as the perfect and loving creations, of a Perfect and Loving God. This is who in truth you are, this is who in truth your brothers and sisters are, overlook all other lies and deceptions of the ego, and begin creating the world, that you have come here to create.
Today, ask yourself “Whose truth do I now choose to follow?” Only truth is true, and there is only one truth, that God is Love and All. If you are not seeing and experiencing Love, and Love’s expressions in this world, such as those of forgiveness, compassion, joy and peace, then know that it is not because they are not right now available to you, it is because you have been programmed to see, value and support, something that is in truth not true. You are seeing this world as a desert, and 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 there. Your true beauty, your radiance, and loving perfection is all that is in truth real, make the conscious choice to practice seeing only this, and forgiveness, compassion, joy, peace, clarity and light will begin to shine from within you and unto all you see. Know that every single interaction that you have with a fellow human being, or for that matter, any living or non living thing, is an opportunity that you and this universe are offering you, in order to remember and radiate, who in truth you are. Be grateful today, that everything and everyone that is place on your path, is there to help you grow, heal and awaken. Be grateful today, that this world, being a reflection of God, loves you in such a manner, that every moment its reflections are occurring, in a million different seeming forms, to help release you from your illusions, and awaken you to your true nature. Today, let us make a conscious choice to brighten our light, so that all others who meet and interact with us, may also, again begin to see and recognize, who in truth they are, have always been, and will always be.
Today, when you think you see an adverse imagine that seems to bring you down, or imagine you hear a negative voice within your head or in the outer world, judging yourself or others, remember that this is occurring because you have delegated your responsibility of seeing and thinking to the ego. You are in essence, allowing the ego to live your life for you. Today, take your seeing and thinking back from the ego by saying: “Today, anytime I think I hear the ego trying to convince me that its negative judgment filled thinking and fear based mindset is true, I will answer in this manner: That is a lie! I am and will always be God’s prefect loving creation, and because we are all One, so too are all my brothers and sisters perfect, because that is how their Creator created them to be. I now make the conscious choice to wholeheartedly trust in God, and remember that all that I am experiencing, thinking, feeling and seeing, is for my highest good, it’s for my growth, healing and awakening. I today thank you, my brother and sister, for helping me remember who in truth I am and will always be. 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, everyone and all. Any and every time negative thought or voice pops up in your head, stop it immediately, and passionately correct it. You control your thoughts; your thoughts should not be controlling you. Then thank the ego for helping you practice, remembering and thus reinforcing within, that indeed it is you, not the ego, that is in control your thinking, seeing and life. It is you who can stop the negative thoughts, it is you who can correct your misperception, it is you who can forgive your illusions, it is you who can forever set yourself free from the ego’s deceptive mindset and grip.
Today, let us recall that God is Love and All, and so if we ourselves are not aligned with loving thoughts, then we are not in our right state of mind. If we are not in the right state of mind, then that means that we are following the ego’s judgment and fear based mindset. If we are following the ego’s mindset, then that means that we are unconsciously allowing the ego to think for us. If the ego is thinking for us, then it is the ego who is in control and living our lives for us. If the ego is living our lives for us, then we have no true control over the world we see. We have no control because we are simply reacting to this world as the ego has programmed us to do, through judgment and fear. Do not put yourself down if you find yourself once again suffocating in the ego’s swamp. Simply realize what you are doing, and start taking back control of your thinking and seeing. Forgive your misperceptions of this world, realize that anything other than Love is not real, is not you. Then once again take back control of your mind and thus of your life, by dismissing the ego’s lies, and shining, reflecting, being and sharing, only the love that you in truth are and were created to be.
