Daily Inspiration: April 17. Overcoming the Idea of Death
Your birth was not your beginning, and neither shall your death be your end. As God’s creations, extensions and expressions, we are what He is, and thus if God is eternal, then so to are we. God is Love, and thus this is who we are, this is our eternal essence, and the more we make the conscious effort to align with our eternal essence, the more we will realize that this is truly so. Today, let us make the conscious choice, to begin to overcome the idea of death, by first setting aside the ego’s illusionary old paradigm. Our eternal essence, our true nature, has nothing to do with dust, and so the truth in us will never return to dust. Our eternal loving essence, was long before it chose to be in a physical body, and it will be, long after it chooses to leave it. But we need not wait to die, to leave the ego’s world behind. We need not die, to start reflecting the presence of Heaven on Earth. All we need do, is to begin consciously choosing Heaven’s expression, which is Love, over the ego’s judgmental mindset, in order to remind us of and reinforce, our eternal nature. The more we choose love over judgment, the more of a Heavenly symbol we will become to those still stuck, mired in the ego’s mindset. Yet, no matter how attached to their illusions others may be, they naturally desire to experience and become an example of, the Heavenly state, of their true Home. Any time you are acting through Love or any of its expressions, you are reminding others of their true Home. Today, let us become a physical symbol of our true Home, it is by doing so that we will bring peace, joy and understanding, back into this darken realm. Because we are all One, being your light will help remind others of the light in them, and so by just being who in truth you are, you’ll provide a great service to many.
Our physical body is but a communication device for the soul. It is a vehicle that we use to get us from point a to point b in the physical world. Sure, our bodies are to be cared for, respected and honored, as a gift from God that it is, yet in reality, we will simply use the bodies for a while, and after they have served their purpose, we will with gratitude lay them down, and confidently continue on our sacred path. Today, let us not confuse our eternal loving essence with these temporal physical structures that as time passes, slowly crack open and fall apart. Our souls, our eternal truth, as part of The Whole, can have no cracks. Let us no longer allow our eternal loving essence to seem to drip out of some illusionary cracks in our souls. Judgment, anger, stress, resentment, and thoughts of revenge, are all symbolic representations, of these illusionary cracks, showing us when we are using the body for the ego’s purposes. These symbols are but fabrications of the ego, made in an effort to have us believe that we are separate from The Whole, from our brothers, sisters and God. The sooner we stop supporting the ego’s use of the body, the sooner we will begin to let go of the false idea of death. Use the body in service to the ego, and confusion and chaos will result, use it in service to God, and peace, joy and understanding, result. When the ego uses the body, it uses it to separate from others, when God uses it, He uses it to unite you with others. The more we consciously understand how the ego uses the body, the quicker we can stop ourselves from using these bad habits, the less time we will spend in separation, anger, confusion, chaos and fear, and the more time we will thus spend in peace, joy and understanding, at One with everyone and all.
Today, let us begin to overcome the illusionary idea of death, and death is just that, an idea, by making the conscious choice, in every moment, to align with, and become an example and representation of, our eternal loving essence, of eternal life. Today, when the ego tries to use cracks in our memory of who in truth we are, to dictate our words, actions, reactions, and interactions, we simply stop, look at them, and remind ourselves that they are not a representation of the love, that is our eternal essence. Then we let these illusionary cracks be healed, through the realization and knowledge, that what they have to offer us, we no longer want. Today, let us recall, that we are not dust, that we are not some decaying physical structure that last but for a moment within eternity, that we are and will forever be, an expression and extension of the Love that created us. God created you, and God only creates perfectly. Today, stand strong, in the calm and quiet peace, of this ever constant certainty. Today, when we use any of Love’s expressions to communicate with another being, we in essence saying yes to, supporting and reinforcing, the eternal in us, everlasting life. The eternal in us, is all that is truly real, and the more we consciously align with it, the more we will realize, how natural and right for us, this state of being is. We are here, to be representatives of our Creator, of eternal life and love on Earth. We are here, to help remind others, that their true home and eternal light, are always but a simple choice away. Imagine, remembering that the choice between death and eternal life, is always ours to make, and that we are in one way or another, always supporting the symbols of one or the other. Today, recognize the power that you have within you, that you can, through your daily choices, represent eternal life or death. Then ask yourself, whose symbol will I choose to represent?
Today, let us recognize, that in every moment, in every interaction, we make the choice, consciously or not, between being a representative of death or of Eternal Life. Let us today, practice becoming aware of some of the symbols that represent death and Eternal Life.
Judgment of self and others, frustration, anger, anxiousness, hate, resentment, and revenge, all these are symbols of death, symbols of one who has bought into the ego’s mindset. Love and all its expressions, such as those of peace, joy, compassion, forgiveness, and charity, are all symbols of the truth in us, of eternal life. Aligning yourself with the symbols of death, will walk you further into darkness and despair. Aligning with the symbols of The Eternal, will make your light shine brighter and brighter each day. Free-will allows us to choose, in every moment, which road to take. Today, if you find yourself on a road that you do not want to be on, do not despair, simply recall that you have free-will, and thus that you can always, simply choose, once again.
