Daily Inspiration: September 18. Exchanging Judgment for Forgiveness and Gratitude
Today, every time that a judgmental thought tries to enter our mind’s gate, instead of feeding and fueling it with our time, focus and energy, let us offer it our forgiveness and gratitude. Forgiveness, because what this judgmental thought is really doing is, offering us the opportunity, to see what false concepts about ourselves and others, we are still holding unto. By getting to practice releasing these false concepts, we can more quickly become consciously aware, of when a judgmental thought, and thus the ego’s mindset, is in control of our thinking. This helps us practice begin to more quickly take back control of our own minds. The more opportunities we have to become self-aware, and take back control of our thinking, the more quickly we will see that the ego’s judgment-centered thoughts, have nothing to offer us, other than frustration, anger, resentment, regret, and thoughts of revenge. Why would we, when in our right minds, continue to support a mindset that only brings about confusion, pain and suffering? Today, let us also offer those judgmental thoughts our gratitude, because they are showing us where, within our hearts and minds, we still believe that the ego’s mindset is more real and valuable than God’s forgiveness, peace and Love. Imagine, no longer having to invest your time on thoughts of frustration, anger, resentment, regret, and revenge, how much more of your life would you have to enjoy? Why continue to throw away your precious time into the ego’s dark bottomless pit? When will you decide to finally cut your loses, turn away from the ego, and start walking back to God, who is your true Source and Foundation. When will you consciously say to yourself: “Enough is enough, what no longer serves me has served its purpose. I now choose to stop supporting thoughts, words, actions and reactions, that don’t serve nor support me.”
You have co-created your journey with God, with Perfection, and so there is no true need to ever have to judge and punish yourself for your past. Your life, your past, no mater how much the ego has programmed you to judge it, was and is a sacred co-creation with God, and perfect to lead you to a higher level of consciousness. Trust this, turn away from judgment, pain and anguish, and towards forgiveness, peace and understanding. Our soul, being love, always desires a conscious alignment with forgiveness, peace and understanding, and thus when it does not have it, it calls out to the Universe for it, for help and healing. The Universe then brings into the physical form, situations and individuals who will best be able to assist you in bringing about this shift in perception. Anytime you have an illusionary judgmental thought within you, your soul or higher-self knows that it does not belong in you, and so a call out to the Universe for help and healing is made. Those who can best answer this call volunteer to come into our life, so that we can project unto them our illusionary thinking, which then better helps us see and understand, what is separating us from being One with our eternal loving essence. If we have ego thoughts polluting our minds about others, then know that they are actually here to help us. They are here to help us see that we can indeed choose forgiveness over judgment, compassion over condemnation, and thus peace over pain. Our illusionary thinking, gets projected unto them, so that we can better physically see and understand, what is separating us from the life that we truly desire. It is thus thanks to their participation in our lives, that we heal. When we do, we will, thanks to our knowledge and life experience, help others heal. This assistance to others, will then give meaning, to our past struggles and pain.
Today, let us ask ourselves: “Is a person, situation, thought or emotion, that is helping us heal and free ourselves from the ego’s mindset, from frustration, anger, resentment, regret, and thoughts of revenge, worthy of punishment and pain, or of gratitude and peace? Is a person, situation, thought or emotion, that is helping us find clarity, forgiveness, compassion, peace and understanding, deserving of being judged and resented, or of being forgiven and thanked?” Today, let us understand, that everything the ego has programmed you to curse, is actually a gift from God to you. A gift that is being offered so that you can free yourself from what still chains you to the ego’s world. How much more peace, compassion, understanding, joy, gratitude and love, would you experience, if you but made the conscious choice, to believe that God indeed uses all your life experience, every step along your path, for good? What do you truly have to lose, by making the conscious choice, to trust God instead of the ego? Just do it, unreservedly for one whole day, trust that everything that you are experiencing, and everyone you are interacting with, is here as a gift from God to you, to help you learn about forgiveness, to help you find peace of mind and joy, to help you heal and awaken. God is forever One with you. God is forever flowing through you. Forgiveness, healing, peace of mind and joy, are all symbols of God’s presence in you. Yes, the ego may have, for a moment in time, blocked this awareness from us, but do not despair, God forever patiently awaits for you to look His way, so that you may consciously join Him, on this sacred journey.
Today, our goal is fivefold. First, let us catch ourselves as quickly as we can when we find ourselves aligned with the ego’s judgment-centered mindset, and stop investing our time on it. Second, let us forgive these thoughts and all those involve with these thoughts. Third, let us offer gratitude to everyone involved in these thoughts, for helping us practice seeing, feeling and understanding, that we do not belong aligned with judgment-centered thoughts. Fourth, let us then practice reminding ourselves that we as God’s, Love’s creations, are worthy of the peace of mind and joy that forgiveness has to offer. Fifth, let us thank our life experience, that same life experience that the ego had programmed us to judge ourselves and others for, that we can now consciously spend less time in the illusionary and pain-filled state of judgment, and more time align with God, in the states of forgiveness, peace, gratitude and joy.
