Today, let us recall that because God is Love and All, even our judgments of ourself and others will be used by the Divine for a higher purpose. Understanding this, there is no need to punish ourselves or others for being less than kind. Instead, let us follow God’s lead by seeing and using our judgment, anger and resentment as signposts on our journey Home. Let us see these energetic expressions as signs that show us when we are heading in the “wrong” direction. When we support any energy that does not help create a peaceful, joyful and loving life, then we are heading away from our true destination. Once we can recognize which energies and behaviors are leading us away from the truth within, we can spend less time supporting them, and thus less time in suffering and in pain. We can then more quickly turn around and choose a more forgiving, loving and supportive path that helps lead us to our true nature. The ability to accomplish this is earned thanks to our life experience. Thanks to our life experience, now when we see these signposts, we do not just unconsciously continue past them on our drive. Now, we know that when we see them, we should pay attention. Anytime you are not being loving or experiencing Love’s expressions such as those of kindness, peace, joy, forgiveness and compassion, you are in essence lost. If we are lost, would we not be grateful to see a sign that can give of some clarity in regards to what direction we are headed in? Today, let us see any expression or experience that seems to be in opposition to Love, as a signpost from the universe, inviting us to make a U-turn. If we can learn to see all such “negative” signs, as simply directional devices, then our need to judge ourselves or others for experiencing them will diminish. When this occurs, when we better understand their useful nature, gratitude will take the place of our judgments, and peace will take the place of our pain.
If you were on a long journey, and someone shared with you that you were actually headed in the wrong direction, would you not be grateful to them? Are they not actually, through their participation in your life experience, helping you get to where you truly desire to go? Understanding this, why would you punish them, instead of offering them gratitude for their assistance, participation in your life, and guidance? How much time, energy, worry, burden filled days and sleepless nights, are they saving you by simply reminding you that you’re headed in the wrong direction? How much less pain, suffering and judgment of self and others, will we do, when we finally learn to detect, pay attention to, and be grateful for, each and every one of these signposts? God is always, in His own way, leading us Home. Home is a place where peace, love, compassion, forgiveness, kindness and joy reside. These signposts are just one of the many ways that He helps us better understand the illusionary nature of our beliefs, and by doing so, redirect our focus and path. The more calmly and consciously we can pay attention to and react to these signs, the better teachers of these life signals we will become. The wiser teachers we become, the less others who learn through our example will need to suffer on their own journeys. We may not now understand how each step, each signpost, has helped us become who we are today. But, the more we understand their useful nature, the more appreciative and at peace we will be with our past experiences and with all those who were a part of them. Today, allow the states of gratitude and peace to signal to you that you are looking at your past and those in it, through Love’s eyes. It is through Love’s eyes that we are meant to see and experience this world.
Today, let us no longer put down or punish ourselves through self-judgment, in regards to our so-called past errors. Instead, let us learn how to be grateful to all of our life experience. It is our life experience that has giving us the wisdom to appreciate, understand and pay attention to, the signposts on our journey. Today, let us offer gratitude, not only for the ‘easy’ parts of our journey, but also for the ‘harder’ parts. The quicker we are able to identify these harder or bumpier parts of our path, the easier we can now navigate through or around them. It is our past experience that now offer us a smoother and more comfortable ride. Today, let us be sure to thank, not judge, our past experiences, and those who were a part of it. Today, let your peace of mind and joy signal to you that you are understanding the useful nature of each step and sign along your path. All the wisdom, knowledge, life experience, sense of peace, ability to forgive and to be more present, you have because of your past. Today, think back to all you have learned, and to all that you can now teach others, because of your past. Recognize the useful nature of your past and offer it your gratitude. If you can do this with your past, then you can do this with your present. You can achieve peace right now, by recalling that everything that you are now going through, is and will serve a higher purpose. Know that your future self will have great appreciation for all your present self is doing to help elevate your level of consciousness. With this understanding, today be a bit more gentle, patient and understanding with yourself, and with those who are participating in your growth and awakening process.
Today, let us practice recognizing everything as helpful. When we recognize everything as helpful, gratitude not judgment becomes our response to it. Love is our true destination and Home, but let us today not judge ourselves or others for seeming to go in Love’s opposite direction. Remember, that God is Love and All, and so even when your ego tries to convince you to head away from Love, in reality you can’t, because God is already all that is real and true. God being Love uses all for good. Thus, He even uses our frustration, anger and resentment, to help us see that where we are headed, we truly do not desire to go. Understanding this, let us thank Him and all those who are helping us, through their participation in our life, better see the dead-end roads that we are taking. The quicker we are able to see these signposts when they are presented to us, the less time we will have to spend going in their direction. The less time we spend in opposition to our true loving nature, the more peace and joy we will get to experience along our way.
