Daily Inspiration: August 10. Judgment & Not Forgiving are Forms of Self-Abuse
Both judgment and the choice not to forgive, are forms of self-abuse. For we are all One, thus what we do and think of ‘others,’ we will feel and experience ourselves. Does the burden that you carry, of your judgments of others, not weigh you down? Does your inability to forgive others, not come chained to a lack of peace? Does this way of thinking, behaving, being and existing, not increase your daily levels of stress, anxiety, and guilt? Does carrying these thoughts around, and being in a bad mood because of them, not hasten your anger? When in this mental and emotional state, does your patience not fade quicker, even with complete strangers? Do these judgments, and your lack of forgiveness, not keep you tossing and turning at night, and leave you still tired the next morning? How much longer will you insist on punishing yourself with your own thoughts? If you have come to this message it is because the time for judgment, punishment and pain are over, and the time for forgiveness, healing and peace, have come. You are God’s creation; you are forever worthy of forgiveness, healing and peace, because the Father of forgiveness, healing and peace, is your Father. Today, remember that we are all One, and so offer others everything that you yourself would desire to experience. What is truly worth more to you, your ego’s need to be right, or your right to be happy? It is not who is so-called ‘right’ who ‘wins’ any argument. It is the person who is happiest and at peace who truly succeeds. They succeed, not because they won or did not win, but because they have made the conscious decision to value their eternal loving nature, more than a silly little ego centered game. Peace and joy are your birthright, but you also have been given free will, thus it is you who must decide, if you indeed value peace of mind and joy, more than the ego’s judgments and resentments.
The ego has programmed us to believe that when we judge, or do not forgive someone, that it is we who are winning, and that it is we who hold a power over them. But ask yourself: “Is this so-called winning, and power I’m supposed to be holding over another, bringing me any true sense of victory, in the form of peace? How can it be, that if, according to the ego, I am doing everything right, that this confusion, sorrow, guilt and burden, don’t release me from their grip? How come I keep tossing and turning at night, and can’t fall asleep, if it is I who is winning, victorious and holds all the power?” But do not despair, for the opportunity for healing, peace of mind, joy and true victory, are always within reach. It is actually the same people who the ego has taught you to judge, blame and punish, that by making the conscious choice to forgive them, can bring you back into alignment with the energies of healing, peace, joy and thus a sense of true victory. And so there your brothers and sisters are, awaiting for you to decide whose advise you will follow. You can either, follow the ego’s advise, and end up traveling down the same judgment centered dead-end roads that have never lead you to your desire outcome, or you can follow God’s guidance, which is to love others as yourself, and by doing so naturally align with and experience love’s expressions, such as those of forgiveness, healing, peace of mind, and joy. When you make the conscious choice to align with Love, over the ego’s judgments, that is your true victory. Aligned with your Father, and step onto the true victor’s podium. Your Father desires you to have true victory, and that is why, through free will, the choice to pick His Love over the ego’s programs, forgiveness over judgment, peace over pain, and joy over guilt, are always, in every moment, available to you.
Today, look deep into the mirror and ask yourself: “Who am I really punishing by holding on to these thoughts, judgments and resentments, within my own heart and mind?” Today, when the ego once again demands judgment, or you to not forgive another, remember the dark and sorrowful places that the ego’s so-called advice takes you, and instead forgive and experience the healing, peace of mind and joy, that as God’s creation, you are forever worthy of. Today, use the moments when the ego is demanding judgment, to instead trigger in you ‘a call to action’ from your highest self, to forgive that part of yourself who you have been programmed to call ‘another.’ Offer what you desire to experience, that is all that is truly being asked of you today. Keep reminding yourself, that we are all One, and so what you offer ‘others,’ you will get to experience yourself. Keep reminding yourself, that you have already traveled the ego’s roads hundreds of times before, and they have never brought you to a place of healing, peace and joy. Today, keep reminding yourself throughout the day, that you are worthy of healing, peace and joy, and so to experience them you must offer them to all those the ego would have you condemn. Before any interaction remind yourself: “Judgment and the desire not to forgive, are both forms of self-abuse. By following the ego advice, I have ended up abusing and disrespecting myself over and over again. When will enough finally be enough? Today, above any so-called victory that the ego will insist I can obtain, I am instead making the conscious decision to align with Love. Today, I allow Love and its expressions, such as those of compassion, forgiveness and understanding, to guide me to a place of healing, peace and joy.”
Today, let us practice respecting ourselves. We do so by recalling, that we are all One, and so the thoughts, words and emotions that we use towards others, have to first flow through and affect us. It will be these thoughts, words and emotions, that will either poison or heal us. And so if our thoughts, words and emotions, are aligned with the ego’s judgment centered mindset, and its desire to hold power over others by not forgiving them, then let us recall that it is ourselves who will suffer, and carry the heavy burden of a mindset, that is out of alignment with our true goals. Still, let us also not despair, for thanks to free will, our freedom from the ego’s mindset is always just a choice away. The choice that frees us from the ego’s mindset, is the one that aligns us with the Love of God. God is Love and All, and so all we need do today, is recall that we are all One, and love all. In doing so, we will reap what we sow, and begin to realize, that there is truly nothing more self-loving and self-respecting, than to love and be respectful of, everyone and all.
