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. Our Creator is Love, and Love is all and eternal, therefore Love is all that is real within the eternal present moment. 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. Thus anything we have learned from the past, anything other than Love, is not real. What we have been taught, that is not a part of our eternal loving essence, comes from our past, and so, when we are upset, it is actually our relationship to the past, not the present moment that we are experiencing. We are seeing the present through the eyes of the past, and that is why we are frustrated and confused as to what is really going on. 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, we do not use it to judge ourselves or others, instead we use forgiveness to practice unlearning it, and in doing so, return to aligning with the love that is our eternal essence.

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 for ours. As long as we continue to react through the ego and fuel it, it remains a large part of our lives and so it becomes confusing to sometimes distinguish between the ego and us. The ego wants this confusion because it wants to convince us and have us believe, that it and us are one, so that we will continue to protect it whenever it is attacked. 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, and so it tries to have us use it 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 and bigger part of us, 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 that ego not us that we are unknowingly defending. We, as God’s loving eternal essence, need no defense, not because we are not worth defending, but because there is truly nothing real that we need to defend against.

Today let us make the conscious choice to lose no more 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. 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. But because it is we who have unconsciously made it a larger and larger part of our lives, it is also we who can undo it and begin dissolving it from our lives. 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 compassion, understanding, forgiveness, peace and joy, then we are simply reacting to the present moment through the ego’s past programming. Today we allow love’s and its expressions to correct our perceptions, return to the present moment by aligning with the love that is our natural state, and once again experience the peace and joy that is our true everlasting inheritance. Today everything other than love, that we have been taught by the ego, we practice unlearning.

Today whenever we become upset, let us remember that it is not us who is truly upset, it is the ego, and so we use such a moment to practice, through forgiveness, compassion, and understanding, undoing the ego’s programming, and thus slowly setting us free from it. Let us try this and in the comment section below, share our personal experiences with undoing the ego.

All glory to God.

Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
