Daily Inspiration: September 14. Choosing to No Longer House Judgmental Thoughts
Today, let us dedicate this day to taking greater personal responsibility, for the judgmental thoughts, that we are thinking about and housing within. After all is said and done, it is only we, who can allow a thought to be housed within us. It is the thoughts that we house within us, that end up painting the picture of the world we see. If you do not like the picture of the world that you are seeing, today choose to no longer blame the world for this, instead go within, and begin to challenge and change the thoughts that are coloring your world. Today, let us notice that the more we feed a thought with our time, focus and energy, the bigger part of our life it becomes. Equally so, that same exact thought, can be starved by us, by taking our time, focus and energy, away from it. By doing so, it becomes a smaller part of our life, and thus of the picture of the world we see. For example, if our time, focus and energy, are placed on peace-centered thoughts, then the picture of the world that we will create, will be of a more peaceful place. Equally so, if we are placing our time, focus and energy, on judgment-centered thoughts, then the world we see and experience will be darker and more painful place. If we are currently housing judgment filled thoughts, and are now wise enough to recall that they are offering us nothing we want, then let us no longer blame the world for this, stop feeding them with our time, focus and energy, starve them, allow them to die off, and consciously replace them with thoughts that will begin to paint a picture, of the world we want. It is important to note, that the world we end up experiencing, is created and seen through, the thoughts we think. Therefore, if we are not pleased with the world we are experiencing, then let us change it, by changing our thoughts.
The ego has tried to convince us, that others are responsible for the thoughts we think. It does this because if you blame the outer world for how you feel, then you give your power away to it. The ego wants you to feel powerless, for the more powerless you feel, the more subservient to it you will be. Today, let us stop giving our power, our free will away. Today, anytime we find ourselves starting to fall into the ego’s blame trap, let us stop this mindset from growing, and take personal responsibility for the judgments we are making. It is important to start confidently challenging the thoughts that we are housing within, that we no longer desire to experience. Today, ask yourself: “Are these thoughts that I am housing within, helping me heal and raise my level of consciousness, or are they hurting me, and like parasites, just slowly eating away at me, their host?” The more we can become aware of the thoughts that we are thinking and hosting, the more control we will have over the life that we are living, and thus of the world that we are experiencing. It is always the thoughts that we are focused on, that are defining the world that we are experiencing. If we are hosting kind, gentle, compassionate, forgiving and loving thoughts, then these are the colors that we will use to paint the canvas of the world we see. Equally so, if we are hosting angry, judgmental, hurtful, condemning and hateful thoughts, then the darken and chaotic world we see, is also simply a result of these thoughts. And so you see, in the end, it is us and us alone, who must allow or disallow the thoughts that are the building blocks of the world, that through them, we are creating.
Today, let us practice becoming more consciously aware of the thoughts we do, and do not, desire to house within. If we desire to experience a less judgmental world, let us consider doing the following:
1) – Let us practice stopping and identifying any judgmental thought that comes knocking at our mind’s gate.
2) – Let us ask it, what does it want for us? Does it want to weigh us down with stress and worry, surrounded us in sadness and anxiousness, hold us a prisoner to pain and regret, and ravaged us with resentment and revenge? If so, we consciously decline its entry.
3) – Let us release that thought and everyone else involved with that thought, with forgiveness and compassion. By doing so, we set ourselves free, from having to carry it. We know when we have forgiven and release it, because peace results.
4) – Many judgment-centered thoughts don’t give up the first time around. Thus, every single time they pop back up, we once again forgive them, and everyone involved with them. By doing so, we let them go and return to the state of peace.
5) – Let us then offer God our gratitude, for given us the wisdom to recall, that it is we who have final say over the world, that through our thoughts, we are creating.
6) – Finally, let us become an example to those, who are still blaming the world, and thus giving their power away to it. Let us remind them, that through forgiveness, they can free themselves from these conflict-inducing thoughts. By doing so, they can change the world they are creating, from a place of pain, to a palace of peace.
Today, let us practice, no longer allowing judgmental thoughts, to go unchallenged. Today, when a judgmental thought comes knocking at our mind’s door, let us recall what investing our time, focus and energy on them, has brought to us. It has brought us nothing but conflict, inner confusion, pain, anger, chaos, resentment and regret. Then, let us recall, that we are all God’s creations, all on perfect, individualized and sacred paths, that we ourselves have co-created with God, and that are always, in one form or another, in our best interest. Because of this co-creation, when we are judging others or ourselves, we are judging God. We will never attain true peace of mind and joy, as long as we are unconsciously judging God. Today, when a judgmental thought tries to enter our mind’s gate, we stop it, decline its entrance, forgive it, place it in God’s hands, let it go, and return to becoming an example, of the state of peace.
