Daily Inspiration: November 17. Emotions are the Compass of the Soul
Today, let us stop judging and putting ourselves and others down for being human and having emotions. If we desire to begin to let go of the ego’s delusional mindset, and of the world that mindset has created, then we must allow ourselves to feel those false concepts, that we have been programmed to defend as real. Being Love’s creations, only the love in us is truly real. Every thought and emotion that tries to place itself in opposition to the love that we are, is illusionary in nature. This, because of our past programming, is many times difficult to believe, and thus why the processing of human thoughts and emotions is a useful way to reach this understanding. The emotions that we desire to heal, we must allow ourselves to feel, process, forgive, and with love, release. This understanding will help us then share with those still stuck in the ego’s mindset, how to begin to release themselves from it. Emotions, are simply the energetic expressions and reflections, of the thoughts we think. Emotions, help show us, and give us a clearer picture of, what thoughts we are supporting as true. In essence, what thoughts we are investing our time, energy and focus on. If we are having emotions that are not in alignment with, or representative of, our loving nature, let us not feel embarrassed into hiding them or ourselves, instead let us bring them to the surface, so that the light of truth and understanding may shine upon them. Let us notice, that our emotions do not really result from what is happening in the outer world, but of how we have been conditioned to view and define what is happening. The great news here is, that the power to change or lift our thinking and emotions to a higher level of consciousness, to a more peaceful, loving and joyful state, resides within us, and not “out there”.
Today, let us make conscious this goal: To not judge but feel our emotions, to process them, forgive them, and then to do our best to work on aligning them with a more peaceful, loving and joyful state of mind. When we make the conscious effort to change our thoughts, to align them more with the expressions of Love who is God, then the less the ego’s mindset will be able to rule over our thinking and thus our emotions and lives. Let us today, allow emotions to become the compass that we use to help guide us to a more peaceful, loving, joyful and productive place in our life. For this, let us be grateful to them, not judgmental of them and us. Today, let us hold, listen and pay attention to, our emotions as we would to our own children, for in may ways, that is who they are, our creations. Let us no longer numb them out or glaze over them with the unconscious noises and distractions of every day life. Instead of judging our emotions as immature, bad or wrong, as the ego has programmed us to do, let us for a moment stop, breathe deeply, appreciate them exactly as they express themselves, and offer them our support, love and gratitude, for enriching our lives. They are here, to assist us, to better see and understand, where we are in our development, in our growth, healing and awakening process. They are here, to give us an external picture of our internal condition. They are here to help us see, feel and better understand, when we are on our true path, and when we are deviating from it. Our true path is the path of Love. Yet still, many times, deviating from our path, only helps us see and better understand, that indeed the path of Love, is the one we want.
Today, when our path, our journey, is supporting the love that we are, in whichever way this love desires to express itself through us, our emotions will be filled with peace, love, joy, passion and compassion, for self and others. When our path, our journey, is supporting the ego’s mindset, our programmed-self, our emotions become energize by selfishness, stress, anger, judgment, hate, resentment and revenge. Let us not attack our emotions for this, let us not “kill the messenger,” instead let us be grateful that we have a messenger, and that this messenger is working endlessly and tirelessly on our behave, to help heal and awaken us. Today, let us remember, that each one of our journeys, and thus each one of our emotions within this journey, no matter how the ego has programmed us to see and react to them, is a sacred co-creation with The Divine. The awaken mind understands, that on a sacred journey, there is no such thing as a wrong step or emotion. Let us stop praising ourselves, taking pride in, the so-called good emotions, and putting ourselves down for the so-called bad emotions. They are both, in their own sacred ways, equally helpful to us. Why should we continue to judge self and others, for emotions that are always, in the end, helpful? Why should we continue to try to hide or run away from, something that is, after all is said and done, giving us greater clarity and self-awareness? Why should we continue to blame or dismiss something that is, in its own sacred manner, helping us reach a higher level of consciousness and thus a Oneness with our Source? Why continue to judge a journey, when that journey, you have personally co-designed, in a sacred partnership with, the Creator of the Universe?
God is Love and All, and uses all for good. Even what the ego has programmed us to call negative emotions, and judge ourselves as immature, bad or not spiritual for experiencing them, will always be used by God for good, to help us grow, heal and awaken us to our true loving nature. Let us remember this today, and offer gratitude to all of our emotions. Today, when a “bad” or “negative” emotion pops into our minds, let us not judge them and ourselves, instead, with peace, tranquility and grace, like a surfer, let us ride each emotion, each wave of our sacred journey. As we do so, let this remind us, to be grateful for the ebbs and flows of everyday life. Both the ebbs and flows, the so-called “good” and “bad” emotions, are here simply to help us understand ourselves better. They are here, simply to show us an external picture of our internal condition. They are here, to help remind us to trust God more, and understand that He uses all for good, and so forgive yourself and others, once again breathe deeply, be at peace, and share your peace with others.
