Daily Inspiration: October 30. Forgiving the Past and Setting Ourselves Free
Today, let us, with the assistance of forgiveness, practice smiling upon everyone from our past. It will be our smiles and what these smiles represent, that will begin to make us aware, that the gates of Heaven, even here on Earth, are open to us right now. Let us consider, what a past without the weight of judgment, could truly feel like. Today, no one from our past is left without the gift of peace, that forgiveness has to offer. Today, let us recall that we are all One, and thus as we set our brothers and sisters free from our judgments, we set ourselves free from having to live with and carry, the heavy burdens of our judgments. Today, when you think of an individual from your past, and judgment-centered thoughts pop up, then know that you are still carrying within, the heavy burdens of the past. When such a moment occurs, do not put yourself or others down for it, instead see it as a call from the Universe, inviting you to return, through forgiveness, to a conscious alignment with your Source. Your Source being Love, represents energies such as those of peace, joy, love, compassion and freedom. When it is these energies that you offer all others, it will be then, that you will be able to free yourself from your past. It is we who have imprisoned ourselves through our own judgment-centered thoughts. Yet thankfully, it is also we who can free ourselves of the burdens that we carry. Let us no longer cower back into the ego’s dark and lonely shadows of the past, for if we have brought this post into our lives, then it is the light and all the light represents, that we are here to recall, become and offer. Let us no longer carry a burden that has never been ours to carry. Let us remember that the cross has already been overcome. Today, free yourself from the ego’s mindset, and by doing so, show others how they too can begin to experience the peace that freeing themselves from the past offers.
It is we and we alone, who have to carry and live with the burdensome thoughts of our past. It is we and we alone, who must decide if anger, judgment, resentment and guilt, are really worth the self-harming effect and weight that they have on us. Today, let it be through forgiveness, that we start to clear our past, and thus setting it, others and ourselves, forever free. Imagine, if there was someone in your life, who was part of a process that helped you free yourself from the heavy burdens of your past judgments. Would you not want to offer them gratitude, for the part they are playing in freeing you from the pain that you have for so long unconsciously, silently and secretly, carried and held within? It is not, as the ego would have you think, your brother and sister who are holding you captive to the past. It is only you, who through the choices that you make, and the thoughts that you think about and focus on, that can do that. Today, let us take personal responsibility, for the thoughts that we are supporting within our minds, that are holding us captive to the past. It is only we, who can truly free ourselves, from the thoughts we carry within. It is only we, who can say to ourselves: “Enough is enough. I have held unto these judgments long enough. I am sick and tire of carrying the past. Today, I forgive, and consciously visualize and feel myself handing all my judgments over to God, and watching and feeling them dissolve in His Perfect Loving Light. Today, I finally acknowledge, that in the end, it is only I who can through judgment, hold myself a captive to the past, and it is only I, who can through forgiveness, set myself truly and forever free.”
Today, it is we who finally make the decision, that as God’s creations, we are worthy of the peace and freedom, that the choice to forgive the past, offers us. For so long we have unconsciously felt unworthy of peace and freedom, and thus why we have failed to forgive. For so long we have felt that anger, judgment, resentment, guilt and pain, where just normal and natural. But now we say: “Enough is enough. We have made ourselves, others and this world, suffer long enough.” Once we truly awaken, there will be no longer a need to remain asleep. Only those who remain asleep, would choose to keep on holding unto their judgments, and thus reliving their nightmares. Once you have chosen to awaken, once you have chosen to truly forgive yourself and others, it is then that your nightmares will end, and it is then that their power over you, will begin to diminish and finally fade away. Once awaken, once we have forgiven, we will look back at those nightmares, that we once suffer so long under, and see them for what they truly were, just a dream that we no longer need to dream. Today, let us awaken, we have slept long enough. It is now time that we help, through forgiveness, to remind our brothers and sisters of their true everlasting loving nature. It is now time that we invite others, through forgiveness, to remember what they, as God’s creations, are here to become and share. We are all here to be and share the Love that God is. We are here to be, share and show, that all of us are worthy of experiencing all of Love’s expressions. We are here to represent God, to remind others that creating a Heaven on Earth is indeed, once we awaken, possible for all of us together, to achieve.
Today, when the ego once again demands that we judge someone from our past, let us recall that unproductive thought process, has never taken us to the state of peace. Let us then do the opposite of what the ego demands, and forgive. Let us notice that as we forgive we heal, and as we heal, peace results. Today, those people who the ego had you judge and blame, are the same ones that through forgiveness, will help you heal and find peace. Imagine, thanks to forgiveness, no longer having to use or carry the ego judgment-centered tools of anger, resentment, hate or revenge. Today, let us take personal responsibility, and realize, that it was through our own thoughts that we became imprisoned within the ego’s mindset. Yet, let us also not despair and recall, that it is also through our own forgiving thoughts, that we will be able to set ourselves and others forever free. Today, forgive, hand all your judgments, pain and suffering, over to God. Feel them lifting off your shoulders and watch them dissolve before His perfect loving light. Do so and experience the peace, that as God’s children, we are all forever worthy of.
