When you are expressing your true essence, that of love, and its expressions such as compassion, forgiveness, peace and joy, you will have a flowing sensation, a sense of fulfillment, because in essence, you are doing what you have come here to do. Anytime you are not expressing your true loving essence, you will have a feeling of being stuck, heaviness, confused, passionless and without direction, because in essence, you are diverting from your true path. Yet, do not despair, for as you can see and feel on the side of most of the USA highways, where they now have bumps that are sometimes referred to as ‘rough treads’, ‘asphalt bumps’ or ‘sleeper lines,’ so that if you drift off course, off the main highway lanes, they help you wake up or make you aware that you are off course, so to will you feel it, this sort of wake up call, anytime that you are not doing what you were meant to do, and are out of alignment with your life’s true path. That experience and the emotions that come with them, that you are able to feel when you are out of alignment with your true path, should be considered a blessing, a sort of wake up call, and not a reason to put yourself or others down for, a curse, nor a negative part of your journey. Such opportunities for self-awareness, become times where growth and healing can take place, by unlearning the ego’s programs. We have been programmed by the ego to put ourselves and others down if we are not in some way expressing or experiencing what we think we should be expressing or experiencing. Today, let us become aware of this program, and reject it. Instead, let us see such rough patches in our lives, as wake up calls and opportunities that help us get back on track. Let us see them, as gifts that are being presented to us, in order to unlearn and let go of the ego’s judgment filled programs, that are not serving or in alignment with, our true journey. Today, let us unlearn, but do so gracefully, gently, respectfully, and with the understanding, that all such opportunities are serving our growth, healing and awakening.
Imagine, learning how to place aside or release, all of the burdens that the ego’s world would have you carry. Imagine, letting go all of the judgments of self and others, that the ego would have you make, all the frustration, anxiousness, anger, resentment, hate and pain, that you have been taught to express for feeling like you are not on your true path. Imagine, instead using all such circumstances and events, as learning or unlearning opportunities, and knowing that they are all being presented to you, simply to help you grow, heal and awaken. If you saw your ‘rough patches’ in this manner, how much more peace and joy would you experience on your journey? Imagine, no longer punishing yourself or others for simply being human, and gracefully and compassionately living out the human experience, the ups and downs of every day life. Today, anytime that you feel out of alignment with your true essence or path, that you feel like you are not flowing, know that there is some type of unlearning and releasing of the illusion, that you are being presented with, and then begin to use this new self-awareness, to release and let such thoughts go. Do not curse such moments for having you focus on what you are not, instead offer them gratitude for helping you see them for what they truly are. You are now aware that you have been given the opportunity to unlearn what you no longer want. Today, anytime we find ourselves in the unlearning state, let our first response to that state be gratitude. Gratitude to the situation, the moment, yourself, and everyone else who is involved in it. Be grateful, that you have come to a place in your life, a place of greater self-awareness, that you can finally truly see what you don’t want. Be kind to yourself, and realize that you have become this more self-aware being, aware of this opportunity, because of the growth that you made have, and that through your past, you have earned. Now, look at your past-self with gratitude, for giving you the life experience that has brought you to this place of peace and greater understanding, to this place where you can now consciously, gently and respectfully, correct your path.
Understanding, that these unlearning situations, are actually assisting our growth and awakening process, now we can change that way we look at them. Where we once judged ourselves, we can now feel invigorated by our progress, and appreciative of how far we have come. This shift in the way we look at the way we learn and unlearn, from one of judgment, blame, suffering and pain, to one of peace, gratitude, joy and understanding, will lift a tremendous mental and emotional burden off our shoulders. And so today, let us use these unlearning opportunities, to remove another mental and emotional brick out of our ego’s backpack, take a good look at it, acknowledge that we do not need to carry it, set it down, and with a sigh of relief, gratitude, a wider smile, a wink of an eye, and a lighter step, continue on our sacred path. Yes, each one of the unlearning opportunities, are like a brick that we have been unconsciously carrying within. The more bricks you release, the lighter you will feel. The lighter you feel, the greater and brighter your own light will shine. The brighter your light shine, the clearer example you will set for others who are going through their own unlearning process. You now know, that you no longer need to punish yourself and others for carrying these bricks, because when we carried them, we did so simply because we did not know of a better or more loving way of digesting and processing our growth. Our growth is something to be grateful for. Today, without judgment, let us recall, that we will all carry our bricks until we get tired of carrying them. Then, when the unlearning process is complete, we will, with a heart filled with appreciation for all they have shown and taught us, lovingly release their mental and emotional burden and weight. Now weightless, we will place them on our tool belts, to be used as future teaching devices, and then gracefully keep moving along our sacred path.
Today, let us practice, going from judging the way we grow, to being grateful for our growth. Realizing who you are not, is not a time to put yourself down, it is a time to be joyful and grateful for your greater self-awareness. Once you were blind, but now you see. It is because of everything that we have gone through in our past, that has given us the life experience, knowledge and wisdom, to now truly see and understand. Now, everything that we once judged ourselves and others so harshly for, is understood and used as a learning device, as a way to communicated that we found our way out of the darkness, and back into the light. Thanks to our whole life experience and to everyone who was a part of it, we can now better understand, what we do, and do not, want. Now, we can keep supporting, focusing on and growing what we do want, and unlearn and thus stop supporting everything else that we do not want. By doing so, we spend more time in the light, and less time in the darkness, more time in the states of clarity and peace, and less time in the states of confusion and pain.
