In so many ways, throughout the day, the ego’s world tries to have us judge ourselves or others. We then end up picking up and buying into its way of thinking, and make the ego’s mindset ours. As long as we continue to buy into its mindset as ours, our judgments, conflict and chaos will increase while our peace of mind and joy will decrease. Yet still, let us not despair, for this way of thinking does not reflect the truth in us, and thus being unnatural, it can not last. Let us recall, that the ego and it’s mindset are self-destructive. The more time we spend entertaining it and its false concepts, the more we will get to see how unlike it is to the truth in us. The more we see this, the more we will desire to depart from its way of thinking. Our capacity to suffer may be high, but it is not without limit. There is only a certain amount of time that we can spend in a chaotic mindset before we start looking for a better way. It is when we get tired of the way we are treating each other, that we will start looking for a kinder, gentler, more compassionate, understanding and loving way. Today, if you find yourself once again traveling the ego’s chaotic and unstable path, do not despair. Know that a change for the better is coming. Every step along your journey, every thought you have ever had, no matter how much the ego has chosen to judge it and you for it, will be used by God to help release you from the ego’s mindset. You will get through the ego’s storm. Your life experience will then become the teaching tools that you will have hanging from your tool belt. It will be the tools on your tool belt that you will then end up using to help liberate others from the ego’s judgment centered mindset. You will become to them, a shelter within the storm. You will help guide them back to a place of peace. Then you will see and understand that it was only because you yourself went through and overcame the storm, that you can now help guide others out of it.
Today, let us practice not judging others or ourselves for simply being a part of the human experience. Many times, the best way to learn that we no longer want to live in this judgmental state is to experience it long enough, or enough times, to get that this is not how we want to go through life. In the end, all those experiences where we judged ourselves and others as not good or worthy enough, were just stepping-stones on our way to “getting it.” Getting that we deserve a better way. Getting that light can come out of the darkness. Getting that the storm does not last forever, and that we can hold on until a break in the clouds appear. Getting that no matter how much we have been programmed to judge ourselves for our life experience, that it all, in the end, does get used by God for good. Today, let us understand the clarity that our accumulated judgment-centered life experience has provided us. Thanks to it, we have a clearer picture of who we no longer desire to be. Let us now thank it and those who were a part of it, for helping us choose and become a more kind, gentle, loving, understanding and compassionate person. Now from this higher conscious state of mind we can see the useful nature of our storms. For this we thank, not judge, our past and those who were a part of it. Let us thank them, for in their own ways helping us see, that there is a more respectful, kind and generous way, of living in this world. You have come far my friend. It is your courage and determination that has brought you to this place on your journey. No longer dismiss your inner strength. No longer dismiss Whose child you are. No longer doubt your Creator nor the creative process. No longer doubt the love that you are and were created to be.
Today, let us practice looking upon our storms, and the life experience that we accumulated from them, with gratitude. Let us thank them for helping us become more balance, peaceful, loving and understanding. It is in these states where we, as God’s creations, truly belong. It is these states that we were created to be, reflect and share. Today, let us recall that God uses each moment, each storm in our journey, to strengthen us. Such experiences offer us the tools we need to help us accomplish what we have come here to do. We may, in any moment judge ourself or others because we are not able to see or understand the growth that is occurring. Yet, the more we look back at our life, the more we will realize the gifts that our past provided us. Your path, your journey, is a sacred co-creation with God. Every step along that path is in some way, shape of form, a gift from God to you, and from you to this world. Align with this memory as true, and trust that everyone else’s journey is equally deserving of this same understanding. It is this understanding that will reduce your need to judge self and others. The more this need to judge is reduce, the more peaceful, loving and joyful your journey will become. Judge yourself no longer for being human. Being human, existing in this physical form, is an act of courage. Every confusing emotion you have experienced, every challenging situation you ever faced, every difficult relationship you had, has made you the stronger and wiser person that you are today. God knows your strength and needs you here right now, exactly as you are. You, just being who you are, is a gift and service to humanity. Today, do not in any way, shape or form, allow the ego to tell you otherwise.
Today, let us practice no longer judging ourselves for simply being human. All your difficulties, challenges and life experiences have made you the stronger, wiser and more compassionate person that you are today. In any specific moment, you may not realize that you are being formed into this stronger, wiser and more compassionate person. That’s where judgment enters. If you do not yet see your courage, strength and determination, know that God does. That is why He has you here, to help others overcome what you have, or are in the process of overcoming. To judge yourself as weak or unworthy is to judge God as an inadequate Creator. God is Perfection and only creates perfectly. Today, choose to no longer place your faith in doubt. Instead, fully trust that the Creator of the Universe knows what He is doing. Trust that He created you in the exact form that this world needs now.
