The value and gift of any illusion, of anything that seems to be in opposition to God’s Love, to All, is to experience it long enough to realize, that it is not in alignment with your true loving nature. When we learn to see and recognize the illusionary nature of the ego’s world, its power over us begins to diminished. The more we experience the ego’s illusion, the less return we will get for our investment, and thus the less reliable we will figure out that it is. Any spiritual teacher or guru can tell you that to find peace you need to forgive in order to release your anger and resentment. Yet, it was only because you held unto anger and resentment long enough, that you can now truly appreciate, acknowledge and understand, their full weight, their energy drain, the worthless nature that such energies and emotions bring to your life, and thus the wisdom of the teacher’s teachings. Herein resides illusion’s gift to us, to experience them long enough to finally get, that we do not want them or anything that they seem to have to offer us. Each illusion, error, mistake, ‘sin,’ is simply a step on a sacred ladder, that helps you get closer to popping out of the ego’s fairy tale. Many times, it is only by repeating our so-called errors over and over again, that we start to notice how little they have to offer us. It is exactly this dissolution with the illusion, that helps you begin to let go of it. Imagine, if you no longer decided to put yourself or others down for experiencing what the ego’s world calls errors, mistakes or sins. Imagine, instead choosing to see them all as perfect steps on a ladder out of the ego’s delusional mindset. Today, simply recall, that the journey that you are now on, you have co-created it with God, and God being Perfect, only creates perfectly.
How much of our life have we sacrificed to the ego’s false idol of judgment? How much of our life have we sacrificed to judging our past, judging ourselves and others as bad, not good or loving enough, not spiritual or wise enough, not worthy enough? What if we could, use our life experience and personal example, not to judge self and others, but to save others days, weeks, or even years of judgment, suffering, pain, guilt and regret? This is what we can begin to do, by choosing to trust God, recall that He uses all for good, and that The Divine only has our best interest in mind. Let us begin to do this by simply looking at our past, and seeing how all those so-called bad days, difficult relationships, errors and mistakes, turn out to be some of our best learning experiences, knowledge and wisdom. If all we have been programmed to see as bad, sad, hurtful, and emotionally painful, is in reality, only helping us become wiser, more knowledgable and compassionate beings, where those “bad” experiences ever really bad in the first place? Once you are able to truly see and understand, how one so-called mistake or bad thing, can turn into wisdom and a blessing, then you can begin to conceptualize, how we turn all judgment-centered illusionary false concepts, into gifts of growth, from God to us. Imagine that, being able to retrain your mind, to see all so-called difficult and tiring times as blessings, as opportunities offered to you, to help you become a more compassionate, knowledgable and more awaken being. Just imagine, recalling the gift that each moment truly is, how you can use that clarity and understanding, to help lift others out of the darkness and back into alignment with The Light.
Today, let us no longer waste our time judging our past. Instead, let us realize that it was because we held onto our illusions, and got to fully experience them over and over again, that we can now see and understand their illusionary nature. Now, we thank, not judge, our past or those in it for helping us better see and understand what is true and not true about us, God’s loving creations. Now, thanks to our understanding, we can find peace in areas of our lives where we once were programmed to believe that peace was not available to us. Today, thanks to your past, you can serve as a reminder to others, of what is and is not true about them. Now, thanks to your life experience and greater self-awareness, you can offer gratitude to all who you were once programmed to curse. Now, you can look back and understand, that all those in your past, were simply helping you become more self-aware and align with your true loving essence. Is gratitude, not the appropriate response to those who have helped you, through their participation in your life, close the book on the ego’s fairy and reach a higher level of self-awareness? Today, allow looking at your past and those in it with compassion, understanding, gratitude, peace and joy, to symbolize to you, that you are seeing your past, as it was created by God for you to experience. Today, trust God, and recognize that because you have co-created your journey with Perfection, that every step along your path, even and especially those you once condemn yourself and others for, were all simply gifts from The Divine, to you.
Today, let us practice looking at our past with gratitude, instead of judgment. Let us see and think about, how much we have matured, how much wisdom, knowledge and life experience, we have accumulated, thanks to it. With this understanding at hand, begin to forgive yourself and others, and then offer them gratitude for the part that they have played in your awakening. Let us recognize, that we would not be who we are today without our past. Every single step on the ladder of our life, has helped us reach, this higher state of mind. Today, forgive yourself and others for everything that you think we did wrong, and thought ourselves guilty of. Have you not learned from your experience? Is that not why we are really here, to grow, learn and awaken to who in truth we are? Are we not here to teach others what we have, thanks to our past, learned? When you begin to teach others what you have learned, and you will start to see and understand, the true gifts within the circle of life.
