Daily Inspiration: May 11. Our Journey to the Present Moment

The journey we will be making today is not so much an external one, as it is an internal one. It is a journey to a place we may have temporally forgotten, but have in truth never left. The present moment, the state of peace, a place freed from past judgments or future imaginings, is our destination. Free will is one of the main navigation tools that we have been gifted to help us reach our destination. When we are focused on judgment or anger, it will feel like we are heading against the current, one that is in opposition to our true nature. When we are in alignment with the Love that God is, with peace guiding our decisions, we will feel like we are headed in the right direction with the wind at our backs. One focus will weigh us down, blow us off-center, and have us get lost. The other choice will lift us up and help guide us to our desired destination. The present moment is where God needs us. It is the reflection of the now that He needs us to share with others. Peace is an energetic representation of His Love and Light. Today, allow the state of peace to energetically show you when you’re in or out of alignment with the now. When your decisions come from a place of peace, know that you properly representing your Creator. When you are properly representing God you will feel fulfilled, because in essence you are doing what you were created to do. When you find yourself lacking peace, let this be a signal to you that it is the ego and its past programs that are captaining your ship. Today, if you do not find yourself at One with the state of peace, do not despair. Simply recognize that you have chosen incorrectly, and then gently and without judgment or hesitation, choose with Love and correct your path.

The more aligned with the now we are, the more we will notice our judgments being replaced by forgiveness, our worries being replaced by a greater trust in God, and our anxious minds being replaced with minds that are at peace. When in the present moment, you are reflecting any of Love numerous expressions. You will be fulfilling your function, and by doing so helping others recall who in truth they are. When you find yourself out of alignment with the now, do not despair. God is All, and so any direction you choose to take, will in some way, shape or form lead you to God, to being who you were created to be. If God is All, then the gifts of the present moment are always available to you. Yet, within the ego’s illusionary dualistic world, there appears to be opposition to All. It is when we are aligned with this delusional state of mind that judgment, anger, worry and anxiety can on many occasions, appear to be real. They can seem like the right and appropriate decisions and responses to God’s creations. Today, let us not judge ourselves when we once again fall down the ego’s dark rabbit hole, and start buying into the false as true. Instead, let us use these behaviors as triggers that help awaken us to the understanding that we are headed in the wrong direction. The more we practice using the ego’s mindset and tools to lead us out of the darkness, the less time we will spend supporting a delusional state of mind as real. Now, energetic and emotional expressions such as judgment of self and others, anger and resentment, can start to help us see, that when we choose them, we end up somewhere we do not belong. The more we understand where we desire to no longer go, the clearer the path to our true destination will be. 

Today, in order to practice returning to the present moment, let us forgive the past and place the future fully in God’s hands. Both the past and future are for the ego to speculate on, not us. The past is gone. It can no longer affect you unless you choose to drag it into the now. The future will forever be only in your imagination, and so it will never exist. All that in truth exist is this moment, right now, the now, and it is in the present moment where our destiny is shaped. All we need to focus on today is returning to the present moment, and by doing so represent and share with others who in truth we are. Today, we are in truth giving away nothing, the past and the future. In return, we are receiving everything, the present moment, God’s eternal gift to us. We have travel far, but truly no distance. We have travel from a state of forgetfulness, through the ego’s delusional fairy tale, to the present moment, back to our true nature. Today, let us use our understanding of the ego’s delusions, our focus on the past or future, not to keep us trap there, but instead to free us to return to the now. Today, do not allow judgment of self and others, anger, worry and anxiousness, to walk you further into the darkness. Instead, use your understanding of what they are to act as a gentle light, reminding you that you are heading somewhere you no longer desire to go. Then thank these delusions for reminding you who you are not. After you have done so, return your mind into alignment with your loving nature, and from there continue on your sacred path. The more we make the conscious decision to stop, recognize and turn away from the darkness, the closer to the Light we will be. The Light, Love, peace, the present moment, all are symbols of God. The more we align with the Light, the more we will feel that it is indeed in and with the Light, within the eternal present moment, where we forever belong.

Today, let us practice recognizing the signals that show us when we are in or out of alignment with the now. The present moment is an expression of Love who is God, thus anytime we are aligned with the now, we are aligned with Love’s expressions. Feeling peaceful, joyful, forgiving and kind, are all symbols of one who is in alignment with Love, with the present moment. Feeling judgmental, anger, sadness, stressed out, anxious, revengeful and hateful, are all symbols of one who, having bought into the ego’s past programs as true, is out of alignment with the now. Today, let us not condemn ourselves or others if we find that we are out of alignment with the now. Instead, let us learn to recognize the signs of one who of is out of alignment, stop that line of thinking, align our minds with Love, and correct our course.

Alignment has been my key word for a while now.. as in my car when out of alignment keeps pulling to one side or the other and often seems to have a vibration in the steering wheel. That image helps yo pull me back into the present moment. I’d what I’m feeling and thinking Of the now or have I drug a judgment into my thoughts.. a judgment of my past? Or a fear into my moment, a fear of something I’ve projected into the future? Neither is now and Then what is happening Now? Usually when I let go of judgment and fear I return to the Peace and Presence of God~

Thank you Shirley for your comment and for being open to the message.

A useful tool that helps when one is stuck in the past reliving the ego’s programs and judgments, is forgiveness. A useful tool that helps when one is lost in their imagination, worry or stressing out about the future, is the practice of trusting God and placing the future fully in His hands.

A symbol that shows us that we are in the now, is the state of peace. A symbol that shows us that we are stuck in the past or fretting about the future, is a lack of peace.

Today, let our forgiveness, trust, and peace, help lead us to create a world that we would be proud for our children to inherit.

Peace. JBC
