Daily Inspiration: September 4. Forgive Another and Set Yourself Free
Today, those who we have judged and cursed, are the ones who will help set us, finally free. Think of a person that you have judged or have yet chosen to forgive. Now, become aware of that momentary unit of time where your frustration and anger towards that person first surface. Admit to yourself that the units in time where your anger first surface was in the past. Notice how, if you did not bring the past into the present, you would not be experiencing the pain and resentment that you now feel. Admit to yourself that, it is in the end only you, who can drag, through the thoughts that you think, the past into the present. If it is only you who can, through your thoughts, drag the past into the present, then it is only you who can make yourself mad now, in the present moment. If it is only you who is truly making yourself mad now, then it is only you who can choose to forgive, set yourself free from your own judgments, and find peace within the eternal now. Let us remember that there is indeed a difference between a unit in time that has passed, and the love that is our and their eternal changeless essence. Let us remember that we are all One, and so it is what we offer “others’ in any situation, that we ourselves will get to experience. In the end, you will experience what you consciously or unconsciously believe you need to, and are worthy of, experiencing. Today, remember that as God’s creation; you are forever worthy of experiencing forgiveness, freedom and peace. Today, when you think of them, instead of dragging the past into the present, once again judging them as the ego demands, and hitting another emotional dead-end road, enter fully the eternal now, and send them a silent prayer and blessing straight from your heart. Wish for them health and happiness, peace and understanding. Truly feel yourself blessing them, notice the difference in feelings, between judging them and blessing them, between dragging your past judgments into the present, and the peace, that through forgiveness, the eternal now forever offers you.
We have all had individuals in our lives that, when they came to mind, we held our judgments of them as more sacred and valuable than our own peace of mind. We have all felt the corrosive nature of what carrying our judgments of self and others around does to us. We have all already sacrificed enough of our peace of mind at the ego’s altar. Peace of mind, thanks to God’s gift of free will, is always just a choice away. Today, let us practice simply choosing to value our peace of mind more than our judgments of others. When we truly do so, then it will be peace that we will experience. One of the main tools that we have been offered to help release us from our own condemnations of others, is forgiveness. Forgive another and you will set yourself free. Forgiveness overlooks the false, the past, what no longer is, and sees and only focuses on the now, on our loving eternal essence, who God created us to be. Gratitude is also another very useful tool in helping us release the false, the past, what no longer is, and focus on the truth, the now. Let us offer those we once judge and condemn our gratitude, because they are helping us, through their participation in our life, practice letting go of who we are not, and aligning with who we were created to be. Today, each and every time they come to mind, first practice offering them forgiveness, then practice sending them a blessing or prayer of peace and gratitude, and then truly feel that peace and gratitude flowing through your body, mind and soul. You no longer need to hold unto your judgments, anger, resentment or thoughts of revenge, all these false concepts are unworthy of the truth in you. Holding unto these concepts will not make you stronger, that is a false narrative perpetuated by the ego, in order to keep itself alive through you. You are not the ego, not some unit in time, you are God’s creation, eternal, Love in physical form, and we are all One.
Today, whenever the ego tries to have you judge another, remember that the ego is doing this for its benefit, not yours. Judgments fuels the ego and your relationship with it, and so the more you judge, the stronger the ego’s relationship with you gets, the bigger part of you it becomes, and the larger part of your life it gets to live. Today, we have decided that enough is enough, and that we will no longer punish ourselves and others through our own thoughts. Today, let us say to those the ego would demand we judge: “My sister and brother, today I have consciously chosen, my independence from the ego. Please forgive me for the negative things I have thought and said about you. That was not my truest nor highest self. Sister and brother, from the deepest part of my heart, from the birthplace of my soul, I now choose to see you exactly and only, as God created you. I now make you a sacred promise; I will never again allow a judgmental thought of you to remain unchallenged within my mind. I will never again utter another negative word about you without immediately asking our Creator for forgiveness, and for assistance in allowing me to see you through His Eyes. Sister and brother, I was once blinded by judgment, but now thanks to forgiveness, I can truly see. Father, I thank You for offering me another opportunity to once again choose peace. I thank You for offering me another chance to see my sister and brother through Your Eyes, love them through Your Heart, hold them with Your Arms, and finally find and accept the forgiveness, freedom, inner peace and joy, that You have for so long, patiently and lovingly, held for me. Thank you Father, thank you sister and brother. Amen.”
Today, let us practice freeing ourselves from the ego’s grip. We begin to do so by making the conscious decision to offer those the ego has programmed us to judge, our forgiveness. We continue to do so by making the conscious decision to offer those the ego insist that we, through our thoughts of anger, resentment and revenge, hold prisoners within our minds, total and absolute freedom. We free them, just like we imprisoned them, through our own thoughts. Now, every single time we think of them, we offer them only our blessing, thoughts of compassion, peace, healing, gratitude, joy, love and understanding. These will now be the energies that they will bring up in us, each and every time we think of them. We complete this shift in consciousness, by offering them our sincere gratitude, gratitude for helping us practice becoming who we came here to be.
