Daily Inspiration: September 2. Viewing Our Peers Through the Present Moment
We cannot judge our peers without our past. The genesis of all of the ego’s programming reside somewhere hidden beneath the dark shadows of the past. These false programs, that we have accepted about ourselves or others as true, can only reside within the past, for the true present moment is free from past judgments. It is within the eternal now, where the peace of God forever resides. To truly experience the present moment, to experience true peace, look upon your peers without dragging their or your past into the present, and make the conscious choice to place your imagined future, fully in God’s hands. The past is now forever gone, it is no more, yet only you can choose to retrieve, revive and relive it, by dragging it, into and onto, the present moment. When you do, the past acts like a wall that is placed between you and your true nature, blocking your view and understanding, of what is really going on. It is only when your view of the present moment is blocked, that you will fail to see what is really going on. When we don’t see what is really going on, you miss the gifts and opportunities for growth and healing, that God is forever, within the eternal now, presenting to us. Do you desire to be right or happy? Only those who demand to be right, have the need for judgment. Those that simply desire to be happy, forgive the past and place the future in God’s hands. By doing so, they become free to experience the present moment, as it truly is. How much longer do you desire to carry your past judgments with and within you? How much longer do you think you need to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders? Carry your cross no longer. The cross, along with all that the ego’s world represents, has already been overcome. That battle has already been fought and won. The enemy has already been defeated. Trust this truth as true, place all those heavy burdens that you have been programmed by the ego to carry, confidently down, walk away from them and the mindset that supports them, and finally find true rest and peace.
The ego has programmed us to immediately judge our peers for what they look like, say or do. If you have bought into this way of thinking, your peace of mind and your sense of Oneness with All, diminishes with every superficial judgment you make of them. When you judge yourself or others, this act unconsciously produces guilt. The ego has you think in this manner because if it can convince you of your guilt, then it has a better chance to convince you that you can not be One with a perfect God. The ego unconsciously is trying to have you think: “Well, if I judge and can feel guilt, then how could I possibly be a part of a perfectly loving God?” The ego is also trying to have you think: “If I am not part of God, then maybe I am a part of the ego and the ego is a part of me.” The ego, in order to survive, needs you to think that it is on your side, and a part of you. The ego needs your judgments, because judgments fuel the ego’s mindset of separation. If the ego can make you feel separate from God and others, then you will feel like you need the ego to defend yourself against them. You defend yourself through the act of judgment, which in turn fuels the ego, making it a more important and bigger part of your life. The more you judge, the more at one you will feel with the ego. The more you choose forgiveness over judgment, the more you will unite with your All-Loving Source. You have already judged enough times to see how much this behavior truly chains you to the past. Are you not tired of having to carry the ego’s chains around with and within you day and night? Have you not tired of the endless battles, the back and forth and back and forth again? Are you not ready for a better, more gentle, forgiving, understanding and loving way?
Today, let us look away from the ego’s past programming and future imaginings, and instead focus on our peers’ eternal loving essence. If we only decided, within the present moment, to fully focus on our brothers and sisters’ eternal loving essence, what need would we ever again have to judge them and to experience guilt? This is what the eternal present moment offers us, the opportunity, through forgiveness to release the past, and through our trust in God, place the future fully in His hands. Today, let us start to prepare ourselves for this gentle and peace inducing way. Today, whenever you see, think of or meet any male, practice your first thought about him being: “This is God’s son, and my brother.” Whenever you see, think of or meet any female, practice your first thought being: “This is God’s daughter, and my sister.” Then throughout the interaction, stay focused on this truth. We are all One, the more you consciously place your focus on your brother’s and sister’s truth, the more you will reinforce and strengthen this truth within yourself, and thus the more at One and at peace you will feel in his or her presence. The more you practice doing this, the stronger your “spiritual vision,” and alignment with The One will be. Spiritual vision is the choice to consciously see, within the present moment, a person’s true loving eternal essence, their spirit/soul, instead of using the ego’s sight that specifically focuses on their temporal nature and actions of the physical body/shell. You and your peers are not your bodies. We are not our so-called past mistakes and programs or future worries that these bodies in a moment in time produced. We are the eternal loving creations of God, all One, all worthy of being seen, as who God created us to be.
Today, in order to see our peers as they truly are, let us let go of the past and future, and return to the eternal now, the present moment, where only the Love of God resides. We do this by replacing judgment with forgiveness, and worry with trust. Forgiving and dropping all our past judgments, and trusting and placing the future fully in God’s hands. Today, when we view our peers through the lens of peace, let that be a symbol to us, that we are in alignment with the now. When we lack peace, let that be a symbol to us, that we are either attached to the past or worried about the future. Peace is simply an aspect of Love Who Is God, and thus anytime that we are viewing others through any of Love’s numerous expression, let that be symbols to us, that we are in alignment with the present moment, seeing and experiencing all our brothers and sisters as they truly are, and were created to be. Let us also take note, that anytime we are viewing our peers with anything other than Love’s expressions, then we are stuck in the ego’s mindset, and viewing them through our past programming.
