Today, those who we have judged and cursed are the ones who will help set us finally free. Think of a person you have judged and not yet forgiven. Now, become aware of that moment in time where your frustration and anger towards that person first surface. Admit to yourself that moment was in the past. Now notice that if you did not drag the past onto the present, you would not be experiencing the pain, anguish and resentment you now feel. Admit to yourself that it is only you who can drag, through the thoughts you think and emotions you support, the past onto the now. If this is true, then it is only you who can make yourself mad and lose your peace of mind now, in the present moment. If it is only you who is now making yourself mad, then it is only you who can choose to forgive, set yourself free from your own judgments, and find peace now. Let us recall that there is indeed a difference between a unit in time that has passed, and the love that is our eternal essence. Being all One, it is what we offer “others’ in any situation, that we ourselves get to experience. After all is said and done, you will experience what you believe you need, to help you grow, heal and awaken. As God’s creation you are forever worthy of experiencing forgiveness, peace of mind and freedom. Today, when you think of others, instead of dragging the past onto the present, enter fully into the eternal now. Do so by sending those the ego would have you condemn a silent prayer and blessing straight from your heart. Wish for them health and happiness, peace and understanding. Truly feel yourself blessing them. Note the difference in feelings, between judging them and blessing them. Feel the difference between dragging your past judgments onto 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 holding onto these judgments does to us. We have all already sacrificed enough of our peace of mind to these judgments. Peace of mind, thanks to God’s gift of free will, is always just a choice away. Today, let us very simply practice valuing our peace of mind more than our judgments of others. When we do, peace becomes our experience. One of the main tools we have been given to help us let go of our judgments of others is forgiveness. Forgive another and you will set yourself free. Forgiveness overlooks the past, what no longer is, and sees and only focuses on the now. Our loving eternal essence always resides within the now. Gratitude is also another very useful tool that helps us release the past, what no longer is, and focus on the now. Let us learn to offer those we once judged and condemned our gratitude. We offer them our gratitude because we now know that they are helping us, through their participation in our life, practice letting go of who we are not, and align with who we were created to be. Today, when they come to mind, instead of once again judging them, practice your first thought of them being forgiveness. Then send them a blessing or prayer of peace and gratitude. Feel this peace and gratitude flowing through your veins, heart, mind and soul. You no longer need to hold unto your judgments, anger, resentment or thoughts of revenge. All these 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 to keep its mindset and way of life flowing through you. You are not the ego. You are not some frozen unit in time. You are God’s creation, eternal. You are Love flowing in physical form, and we are all One.
Today, when the ego tries to have you judge another, recall the ego does this for its benefit, not yours. Judgment fuels the ego and your relationship to it. The more you judge, the stronger the ego’s relationship with you gets, the bigger part of your life it plays and becomes. Today, let us decide that enough is enough. Let us no longer punish ourselves and others through our own thoughts. Today, let us say to those the ego would demand we judge: “My dear sister and brother, today I have consciously chosen my independence from the ego’s rule. Please forgive me for the negative things I have thought and said about you. That was not my truest nor highest self. Dear sister and brother, from the deepest part of my heart, from the birthplace of my soul, I now promise to see you only as God created you. I will never again allow a judgmental thought of you to go unchallenged within my mind. I will never again utter another negative word about you without immediately asking our Creator for forgiveness. I will now always humbly ask God to allow me to see you through His Eyes. Dear sister and brother, I was once blinded by judgment, but now thanks to forgiveness, I can truly see. Father, I wholeheartedly thank You for offering me another opportunity to once again choose peace over pain. I thank You for offering me another chance to see my sister and brother through Your Eyes. Thank You for helping me love them through Your Heart, and hold them with the steadiness of Your Arms. Thank you Father for opening me up to forgiveness, freedom, inner peace and joy. Thank you God for your patience, mercy, perfect love and grace. Today, may I offer all You offer me, to all Your children. Thank you Father, thank you sister and brother. Amen.”
Today, let us practice freeing ourselves from the ego’s judgment-centric grip. Let us do so by choosing to offer forgiveness to those who the ego has programmed us to judge. Let us offer those the ego insists we hold prisoners within our minds (through our thoughts of anger, resentment and revenge) total and complete absolution. In doing so, being all One, we free ourselves. Now, every time we think of them, we offer them only our blessing. From deep in our hearts we ask God to fill their lives with the energies of peace, healing, joy, love and understanding. These energies now become our first responders, what we now choose to focus on and support every time we think of them. We complete this shift in perception and consciousness by offering them our sincere gratitude. We thank them for helping us, through their participation in our lives, practice freeing ourselves from the ego’s grip and mindset.
