Daily Inspiration: September 23. We Are Not Upset for the Reason We Think
When we are upset, it is not really the picture of the outside world that is upsetting us, it is how we have been programmed to see, react to, interact with, and interpret that picture, that is upsetting us. It is not really the present moment that we are experiencing, it is our past programming that we have dragged onto the now, and are seeing in its place. Our Creator is Love, and Love is All and Eternal, therefore Love is all that is real within the present moment, within the eternal now. The past is gone and the future is but imagined, and thus it is only the eternal present moment that is forever truly available to us. Anything we have learned from the so-called past, that is anything other than the Love the we are, is not true. Anything that we have been taught or programmed with, that is not a part of our eternal loving essence, comes from our past. When we are upset, it is actually our relationship to the past, our past programming, not the present moment, that we are upset about and experiencing. We are seeing the present with the eyes of the past. That is why we become frustrated and confused, because we don’t really understand what is happening right now. We will not experience true peace within the present moment, as long as we choose to experience it through our past programming. Today, when our past programming pops up, let us not use it to judge ourselves or others, instead let us use forgiveness to practice unlearning it and thus as a way to deprogram ourselves. Let us let it go, and by doing so, return into alignment with our eternal loving nature. Why carry the burdens of a time that no longer exist? Why look at and react to the present moment through eyes and a mind, that are no longer yours? Today, let us awaken to who in truth we are, see things through love’s lens, and enjoy the gifts that the present moment offers.
The ego has programmed us to see this world through its judgment and fear based mindset. The ego has only taught us what fuels it, and so when we are reacting through the ego, it is for the ego’s benefit, not ours. As long as we continue to see and react through the ego and fuel it, it remains a large part of our experience. Because of this, it is very often confusing to distinguish between us and the ego. The ego wants this confusion to exist because it wants to convince us, and have us believe, that it and us are one, one mindset. If we believe ourselves to be one with the ego, then we will continue to protect it whenever it seems to be under attack. To the ego anything that does not agree with it, attacks it. When others are not agreeing with us, or thinking like we think, the ego through the act of judgment, has us attack our brothers and sisters. Judgment is one of the main fuel sources of the ego. It tries to have us use judgment of self and others as often as possible, again not for our benefit, not to defend us, but only for its benefit, so that it can continue to grow within us and become a bigger part of our experience and internal conditioning. The ego continues to push us in its direction, until one day we become completely unconsciously aligned with the ego, and think it to be us. When we think the ego is us, when we unconsciously defend ourselves, it is the ego and its mindset, not us, that we are unknowingly defending. We, as God’s loving eternal creations, need no defense, but not because we are not worth defending, but because there is truly nothing real that we need to defend against. All that is real is the Love that God is, and there is no need for us to defend ourselves against that.
Today, let us make the conscious decision to no longer lose our brothers and sisters to the ego’s judgment filled wars. We have lost enough of them already, the time for peace has come. Today, let us remember, that when we become upset, it is because we are defending the ego’s mindset, not ours. Our natural mindset is to be at One with the Love that God is. The ego is not us, nor even a real small part of us. The ego is an extremely limited illusionary belief system within our minds, that through our unconscious support of it, we have made it seem like a real and important part of us. Yet, because it is we who have unconsciously made it a larger part of our lives, it is also we who can undo it, and begin dissolving it from our existence. Today, let us no longer become upset and judge ourselves or others as the ego has programmed us to do. Instead, let us take note that when we are not interacting with the present moment with love and its expressions, such as those of compassion, understanding, forgiveness, peace and joy, then we are simply reacting to the present moment, as the ego has programmed us to do. Today, let us allow Love and its expressions to correct our perceptions, and return us to the present moment. By aligning with the love that is our natural state, we will once again experience the peace and joy that is our inheritance. Today, let us undo all that the ego has programmed us to do. Let us no longer view this world through the ego’s muddy lens, and begin to encounter all things as they were created by God for us to experience and enjoy.
Today, whenever we become upset, let us remember that we feel this way, not because the outer environment is deserving of such a response, but because this is how the ego has programmed us to react. It is not the eternal loving truth in us that is upset, it is that sleeping part of us that still believes in the ego’s mindset, its fairy tale as real. Today, let us recognize that this behavior is not who in truth we are, and learn to use forgiveness to help us once again align with our loving nature. Forgiveness helps begin to deprogram us from the ego’s judgment centered mindset. The more we practice choosing forgiveness over judgment, the more control we get over our own thoughts, the less need we have to become upset. Now, thanks to forgiveness, becoming upset is no longer a program that we blindly follow.
