Today, let us start paying close attention to what is, and what is not, helping us become who we desire to be. Let us single out thoughts, words, emotions, and the ways we interact with others, that are not lifting us to a higher level of consciousness, to a more peaceful, loving and joyful life. By doing so we take a stand against what is not working for us. Let us no longer allow and give a free pass to the thoughts, words, emotions or actions, that put us or others down. No longer will they be a conscious part of our experience. Today, let us stop placing our time, focus or energy on what is not fueling our growth, healing and awakening process. Let us sacrifice no more of our life to false idols and concepts that are not helping us become the loving beings that we were created to be. Now, when dark thoughts, words and actions come into our awareness, let us take a good look at our own balance sheet, and finally clearly see that we are receiving nothing in return for our investment. Nothing except steps toward further darkness, misery, pain and a loss of peace and joy. Throughout our past, we were programmed by the ego not to act in our best interest, but instead to act with the ego’s best interest in mind. The ego’s main fuel source is judgment, so anytime we are behaving in a way that brings about judgment, we are working for the ego, not for us. It is important to start recognizing what is in our best interest, or in the ego’s best interest. More often than not, they are opposites of each other. The ego desires and is fueled by judgment, separation, confusion, despair, pain and chaos. We, the truth in us desires and is fueled by forgiveness, union, love, joy, peace and understanding.
Today, let us search our hearts and minds for a kinder, gentler, more peaceful, loving and joyous way of growing and participating on this planet. Let us also begin to consciously define and let go of behaviors that do not have this better way in mind. Today, if we find ourselves reciting once again from the ego’s playbook, using judgment and anger as some sort of solution to our confusion, let us recall that we are now looking for a better way. Now, when the ego demands judgment and anger, why should we continue to support such self-defeating behaviors? Why accept the ego’s advice, and respond with judgment and anger, when we know that doing so does not bring us the peace of mind or joy we want? When the ego insists that we must stress out and worry, why do we accept its request, and stress out and worry? We have already reacted in this manner hundreds of times before, and yet it has never brought us the peace of mind and joy that we wanted. When will we, as a people begin to recognize that our thoughts and reactions should not be controlling us, that we should be controlling them? When our thoughts and reactions are led by and align with the loving truth in us, this is a symbol that it is we who are in control of our thinking. When they are helping us reach a deeper sense of self-awareness and a higher level of consciousness, these are signs that we are in control of our thoughts. If our thoughts, words, emotions and actions, are not bringing us love, joy, peace and understanding, then let us today look to consciously shift our focus, time, energy and effort, away from them. We, as Love’s creations, are forever worthy of a joyful and peaceful life. If we are not experiencing such a life, then know that it is not the truth in us that is currently in control of our thinking.
Today, let us no longer allow the ego to unconsciously manipulate us. Let us instead take a stand against the illusionary responses that the ego has programmed us to think. The free pass that we have given to the thoughts, words, emotions and actions, that only serve the ego, are now pass due, invalid, and will no longer work. Today, when the ego demands condemnation, we will instead offer compassion. When it insist we must roar with anger, we will quiet our minds through forgiveness. When stress and anxiety are deemed obligatory, we will stop this world’s madness, take a deep breath in, breathe out, and trust that because God is Love and All, that all will be alright. Today, when the ego tries to once again to move us in its direction, it is we who hold up the stop sign. Today, when the ego once again comes calling, let us recall where its directional system has taken us before. Let us lift our symbolic stop sign way up high, and from this place of greater self-awareness, begin to instead look for a peaceful, loving and joyful way. We now, thanks to our life experience, know what will not work for us, and thus what roads not to take. Now that we know this, our way home will not be hard to find. We have travel blindly down the ego’s darken tunnel long enough. Today, let us choose to finally awaken to the fact, that we do have free will. We can disagree with and even deny the ego’s demands and programs, and thus by doing so choose a better, more loving and gentle path. Imagine, finally being able to consciously say no to what is not working for you. This is what we will practice doing today, saying no to the ego’s desire for judgment, anger, anxiousness, confusion, chaos, and pain. And saying yes to forgiveness, love, joy, hope, peace and understanding.
Today, when life seems to not be going your way, do not despair. Simply recognize that you are feeling this way because you have been programed to serve the ego, and not the truth in you. Today, let us learn to recognize when it is the ego, or the truth in us, who is in control of our thinking. We know when the ego is in control of our thinking when judgment, anger, confusion, anxiousness and chaos become our first response. This first response seems to be instinctual, but it is not. It is simply a program that the ego has successfully downloaded into us in order to serve it. The ego is not our instinctual response, Love is. The ego and its mindset are simply lies that have been taught to us as true. Today, let us practice taking back control of our own thoughts and minds. Being loving, joyful, forgiving, peaceful and understanding, are all symbols that the truth in us, our eternal loving essence and nature, is back in control of our thinking.
