Daily Inspiration: August 11. Forgiveness is an Act of Love and Self-Love
Forgiveness is a form of love and self-love. When you forgive a sister, you remind her that it is not her body, words or actions, that are the truth in her, her truth is her changeless eternal nature, light and love filled soul. The body is just a temporal communication device for the eternal soul. If we decide to align with the temporal, we will experience what the temporal world has to offer, but if we keep our focus on the eternal, then all that is aligned with our true Source, is what we will surround and embrace our hearts and minds. In every moment we have that choice, to align with the temporal in us, the person that we have been programmed by the ego to believe that we are, or to align with our eternal essence and nature, the love that God created us to be. We are all One, Love, and thus our truth desires to create through and share this Oneness, Love, with all. If you desire to experience this love more fully, simply choose to overlook or forgive the illusionary nature of people’s programs, and instead focus only on their eternal nature. Forgiveness, which is an expression and extension of Love, opens the door from the temporal to the eternal. Today, offer your sister gratitude, for the opportunity to see only the light in her, so that you may remember it as your own. The more you get to practice choosing, seeing and aligning with your eternal essence, the more fulfilled you will feel, because in essence you will be doing what you came here to do. Imagine, knowing that no matter how the ego has programmed you to see and react to a situation or another person, that thanks to free will, the choice for forgiveness, and thus peace, is always available to you. Imagine, the gratitude and joy you could feel, once you recall that all of Love’s expressions, are always just a simple choice away. This is the gift that forgiveness, in every moment offers us, the opportunity to rediscover and align with our loving nature, and thus experience the peace and joy of God.
We have all wasted away enough of our lives trying to support the judgmental mindset that places itself in opposition to forgiveness. But now, we are coming to a place in our awakening process, that we are starting to really pay attention to what both choices have to offer. One choice chains us to the past; the other choice sets us forever free. One choice puts us in a bad mood during the day, making us quicker to anger, and the other one brings a kind, warm and inviting smile to our face. One choice robs us of our nightly rest, as we toss and turn thinking negative thoughts about others or ourselves, and the other lets us lay our heads gently on our pillows, and allows us to fall into a deep and healing sleep. We have come far on our journey to awakening, and so now we are beginning to realize, what it is that we are truly worthy of experiencing. We, all of us, even and especially those who still are asleep to the truth in them, are Love’s children, and thus are forever worthy of His Love and all of Love’s expressions. If God forever sees us as worthy of His Love, would it not be wise to make a serious attempt to follow His example, and see ourselves and others, as He sees us? His example will lead us to a place of peace, joy and understanding, when we decline His example and align ourselves with the ego, we end up in an judgmental, angry, and resentful place, basically a Hell on Earth. The choice, and thus creation of a Heaven or Hell on Earth, is made in every moment. Today, let us remember, that our choices will create the world that we experience, and that our children will inherit. Today, let us make the conscious choice to only see God’s creations, as their eternal essence, and not as some temporal illusionary character within the ego’s fairy tale.
Today, let us consciously practice feeling how deeply loving and self-loving it is to forgive ‘others’ and ourselves. As we do so, we will once again begin merging back into the Love that is our eternal essence. As we do so, we will return back to, and align with, the Light that is a reflection of our true Home. Today, let us gladly shine our true eternal loving essence upon all those that God brings before us, and as we do, we will see this loving light reflecting back from everyone we meet. This way of being and interacting with our fellow brothers and sisters, will bring us the peace of mind and joy that we have for so long looked for and desired. We are worthy of all that God is, and peace of mind and joy are just two of His many loving expressions. As we achieve that states of peace and joy, we will begin to understand, that these states have always been within us, and that all we ever truly needed to do, was to choose to look their way. And so today, let us use every opportunity that is being presented to us, every interaction that we have with a fellow being, to represent Love’s expression of forgiveness on Earth. Each forgiving step that we take and choice that we make, thanks to our brother’s or sister’s participation in our life, will bring us closer to our natural states of peace and joy. Today, let us with honor, and walk hand in hand with all those who we are blessed to be experiencing. Let us gladly help guide them, through forgiveness, to this place of perfect peace, joy and understanding. This place of perfect peace, joy and understanding, is our true Home; this is a place that we have, but for a moment in eternity, temporarily forgotten, but a place that in truth, we have never left.
Today, let us offer our sincere and deep gratitude to our brothers and sisters for every time they offer us the opportunity to forgive them. When we forgive those who the ego demands we judge, we begin putting in place the building blocks that will create our own Heaven on Earth. This is the opportunity that our brothers and sisters are offering us, the opportunity to accept Heaven and reject a Hell of our own making. If we are reading this message, then it is a symbol that we have come to a place on our awakening process, that understands, that it is the seeds that we plant today, through the thoughts, words, emotions, actions, reactions and interactions, that tomorrow become the source of nourishment for our children. God, today is entrusting you with His children, and all He is asking you to do, to begin building and experiencing a Heaven on Earth, is to forgive them their trespasses, as He has forgiven yours.
