We cannot judge our peers without our past. The genesis of all of the ego’s judgment-centered programs reside somewhere hidden beneath the dark shadows of the past. The present moment as an expression of the Love and Light of God is free from our past judgments. It is within the eternal now where the peace of God forever resides. The state of peace is a sign of one who is living fully present within the now. To live fully present within the now you must be willing to forgive and release your past judgments and see your brothers and sisters only as God created them. Today, forgive the past, place the future fully in God’s hands, and return to the now. The past is gone. Only you can retrieve, revive and relive it by choosing to drag it onto the present moment. When you do, the past acts like a wall that is placed between you and your true nature. This wall blocks you from seeing the now as God created it for you to see, experience and enjoy. When you don’t see the now as what it is, you miss the gifts of growth and opportunities for healing that God is forever, in every moment, presenting to you. 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, place the future fully in God’s hands, and choose to see the present only as the gift that it is. By doing so they become free to experience the now as it truly is. How much longer do you desire to carry the weight of your past judgments on your shoulders? Carry the cross no longer. The cross, along with all that the ego’s world represents, has long ago been overcome. That battle has already been fought and won. The enemy has already been defeated. Trust this truth to be true, and place all those heavy burdens that you have been programmed by the ego to carry, confidently down. Do so, see others only as they were created to be, and experience 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. When you judge self 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 has you thinking: “Well, if I judge and can feel guilt, then how could I possibly be a part of a perfectly loving God?” “If I am not part of God, then I must be 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 your judgments fuel the ego’s mindset of separation. If the ego can make you feel separate from God and others, then it can make you feel like you judge or attack them without such an attack have a negative effect on you. You attack through the act of judgment, which in turn fuels the ego, making it a bigger and more important part of you and your life. The more you judge, the more you will feel at one with the ego. The more you choose forgiveness over judgment, the more you will feel One with your All-Loving Source. You have already judged enough times to note that this behavior chains you to the past. Are you not tired of having to carry the ego’s chains of judgment and guilt? Have you not tired of the endless battles, the back and forth and back and forth again? Are you not ready for a better, gentler, more productive and loving way?
Today, let us look away from the ego’s past programs and instead focus only on our peers’ eternal loving essence. If in the present moment we only focused on others’ eternal loving essence, what need would we ever again have for judgment and guilt? This is what the present moment forever offers us, the opportunity through forgiveness and compassion, to release our past pain and return to being One with God. Today, let us start to prepare ourselves for this more gentle and peace producing path. Today, when you see, think of or meet any male, practice your first thought being: “This is God’s son, and my brother.” When 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. Being all One, the more you consciously place your focus on your brother’s and sister’s truth, the more you will reinforce and strengthen the love and light in you. The more secure you feel in your true nature, 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 conscious connection to God will be. Spiritual vision occurs when, within the now, you choose to focus on and see a person’s soul instead of their shadows. You focus on and see their eternal loving essence instead of what their body might say or do. You and your peers are not your bodies. We are not our so-called errors, sins or past mistakes, that in some seeming frozen moment in time our bodies produced. We are all the eternal loving creations of God. We forever are what God is. God is eternal Love and Light, thus this is who we must also be.
Today, in order to see our peers as God created them, we let go of our past judgments and future imaginings. By doing so we return to the eternal now, the present moment, where the Love of God forever resides. When we are in the now, we are in alignment with the Mind of God. We align with the Mind of God by replacing judgment with forgiveness, and worry with trust. We forgive and drop all our past judgments, and trust and place the future fully in God’s hands. In doing so we return to the now and see all others through the lens of non-judgment and peace. Non-judgment and peace, just like all of Love’s expressions can show us when we are seeing others as they truly are. Today, let us allow any of Love’s expression to show us when we are residing within the present moment, and thus seeing all others as God sees us.
