Daily Inspiration: October 14. We Cannot Achieve Peace Through Punishment

We cannot continue to punish ourself or others, then wonder why we have not achieved the state of peace. If we desire peace, we cannot have a brother or sister who is in pain and suffering, give them more pain and suffering, then expect anything from them other than to add more pain and suffering to this world. People who are not being kind are in pain and suffering on some level. They lack healing and compassion. Those who lack healing and compassion need healing and compassion, not a deferment of them. We do not have to look far into our past or deep into our heart to see that this punitive way of thinking and behaving is not working for us. This mindset is not bringing greater levels of peace, love and joy into our life.

The USA has 5% of the world’s population and 25% of its prisoners. This is telling us we must first heal our own back yard before trying to be an example of peace and compassion to this world. The way we can begin to heal this pain is not somewhere out there it is within our own hearts and minds. Today, let us support only peaceful, loving and forgiving thoughts and words within our own minds, hearts, families and lives. The more we align with this way of thinking the more this mindset will manifest into the physical form. This will manifest in the forms of our laws, and our correctional, legal and political systems. It is in our hands to undo what we ourselves have done. Rejoice that the power to change resides within us. Today, we can begin to lay the groundwork for this much needed change by deciding in each moment to allow only our loving essence to lead us. Let us decide that in every interaction we will align our thoughts, words and actions with who in truth we are, the love that God created us to be.

Being all One, today let us look upon those who are in pain and suffering, or are putting this world through pain and suffering, and do our best to love them. If we find we do not have the love within us to offer them, then let us take the love that we do have for those we love, and offer that love to them. Being all One, we can indeed borrow the feeling of love we have for others and let that love open the door to loving those that our ego refuses to love. With this borrowed love let it lead the way and guide us to becoming more forgiving and compassionate. Today, we deny the ego’s demands to judge and condemn and instead offer only forgiveness and compassion. Do so and begin to see how natural and right forgiveness and compassion feel to your heart and mind. Each and every time the ego’s judgments come knocking at our mind’s door, now we will recognize the opportunity to heal and forgive instead. Now we offer that expression of love that our brothers and sisters have been yearning for. At first, this may on the surface appear to be a symbolic gesture. Yet, the more you practice replacing the symbols of fear with those of love the more your mindset will shift to a higher vibrational frequency. The higher your frequency, the more loving you become, the more you will feel that this is who in truth you are. The more you experience this alignment with your highest self, the more natural and honest these healing expressions of love will become. The more natural this way of feeling and thinking about others becomes, the more in alignment with God you will be. This alignment with our All-Loving Source will bring you back into congruence with the state of peace.

Today, let us remember that we do have free will. We do not have to continue to be manipulated by the ego’s past programming. We do not need to punish others simply because we have been programmed to believe that punishment is the appropriate response. Today, let us recall that being all One there is nothing we think of or offer others that doesn’t first reverberate through us. It is we ourselves who must begin to take personal responsibility for the thoughts we think. It is we who must understand that our thoughts either poison or heal us. Those who punish others will inevitably have to carry the heavy burden of judgment, guilt and regret. As God’s creation you are forever worthy of the state of peace. But peace cannot be truly experienced as long as you  value punishment, judgment, guilt and regret more. Offer peace to others and it will be peace that you’ll have flowing through you and throughout your day. Today, let us decide to offer forgiveness, healing, compassion and love to those the ego insist are only worthy of being judged and punished. Having free will you can always override the ego’s judgment centered programs any time you so desire. As we start taking back control from the ego we start taking back control of our own minds and lives. Today, our offerings of forgiveness, healing, compassion and love, blesses and restores those who have been in pain and suffering. These loving actions, being who we were created to be, will begin to more closely and consciously united us with our Creator. Aligned with our Creator, safe in His Loving arms, we ourselves will be embraced by all of the peace, compassion, mercy and grace of God.

Today, note that when you are trying to judge and punish another it is the ego who is in control of your thinking. Recall being all One that you poison or heal yourself with every thought you think. Today, when you find the ego trying to poison you, stop your thoughts right there and then. Then shift your thinking to align with your loving nature. Shift to thoughts that will help heal your heart and bring peace to your mind. Offer all others the opposite of what the ego is demanding. If the ego demands judgment, offer forgiveness instead. If the ego insist you judge and punish another, offer them instead your blessing. Then pray for their peace of mind, healing and awakening. Do so and note how it is always what you offer others that you will feel  flowing through you and throughout your day.
