Daily Inspiration: October 14. We Cannot Achieve Peace Through Punishment
We cannot punish others or ourselves into 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, and expect anything other from them than adding more pain and suffering to this world. Those who are in pain and suffering, lack healing and compassion, those who lack healing and compassion need healing and compassion, not a deferment of them. You do not have to look far to see that this punitive way of thinking is not truly working for us, is not bringing us greater levels of peace of mind, love, and joy into our lives. When here in the USA we have 5% of the world’s population and 25% of its prisoners, this tells us that we must first heal our own back yard before trying to be an example of peace and compassion to this world. The way we begin to heal this pain, is not somewhere out there, it is within our own hearts and minds. The more peaceful, loving and forgiving thoughts and words we as Americans, begin supporting in our own families and lives, the more this peaceful, loving and forgiving mindset will manifest into the physical form, into our laws, our correctional, legal, and political systems.
We are all One, today when we look upon those who are in pain and suffering, or are putting this world through pain and suffering, and if we cannot, or do not have, the self-awareness to think of them and directly offer them healing and compassion, then let us focus deeply on those we do love, and then offer this love to them. We use the feeling of love we have for those that we do love, and offer this feeling of love to those we are having a hard time loving. At first this may seem like a symbolic gesture, yet the more you practice yourself feeling love for all, the more your mindset will shift to a higher vibrational frequency, and the more you will see and understand how aligned this act is with your truest self. The more you feel and experience this alignment with your truest highest self, the more natural and honest these healing, compassionate, and loving thoughts, words, and expressions will be. The more natural this way of feeling and thinking of others becomes, the more in alignment with God you will be. This alignment with God will bring you the states of peace and joy.
Today we remember that we are not slaves to the ego’s past programming. We do not need to punish others simply because we have been programmed to believe that certain ways of being need to be punished. Today let us remember that we are all One, and so there is nothing that we think of or offer others that we will not get to first experience and hold within. Those who punish others will inevitably have to carry the heavy burden of judgment and punishment. As God’s creation you are worthy of peace and joy, but peace and joy cannot be truly experienced as long as you are valuing judgment and punishment more. Offer peace and joy to others and it is peace and joy that you will be having flowing through you and throughout your day. Today we recall and make the conscious choice to offer healing, compassion, and love to those the ego insist are only worthy of pain and punishment. As we start taking back control from the ego’s mindset, because we are all One, we will start to notice how our offerings of healing, compassion, and love not only blesses and restores those brothers and sisters who are in pain and suffering, but also these offerings will bless, restore, and strengthen our own connection to our true nature and the states of peace and joy.
Today, each and every time someone you dislike pops into your mind, instead of poisoning yourself through negative thinking, offer them wholeheartedly a blessing, pray for their health, happiness, peace and awakening. Do this each and every time, and please share with us how this shift in mindset is making you feel.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
