Daily Inspiration: August 12. You Need Not Defend Yourself Against Illusions
God is Love and All, yet in this world of duality, the ego has programmed us to believe that there can be an opposition to All, Love, God. Thus, it is our programmed belief that opposites to All are real, that makes us feel like we need to defend ourselves against illusions. When Love is All, then All that you are is love, thus any thought, word, emotion or action, that you think or take, that is in opposition to love, must not be real nor a real part of you. And so, you may have been programmed to judge, be angry, anxious or hate, yet because all these are in opposition to Love, none of these are the truth in you. The more you use the ego’s tools, such as those of judgment, anger, anxiousness and hate, the more you will see, realize and feel, how unlike they are to the truth in you. It is only when you are viewing this world through the ego’s mindset, that the opposite of All can seem to be true. When such a world is bought into, Love’s expressions such as compassion seems to have its opposite, let’s call it indifference, for peace let’s call it chaos, for joy let’s say its sadness, for hope its hopelessness, and so on and so forth. The ego strongly supports the opposition to Love, because if it did not, then it would cease to exist. The ego only exist within the fairy tale that it has created. Once we awaken to our true nature, we will no longer have a need for anything that places itself in opposition to Love. When you stop supporting the false as true, when you stop investing your time, focus and energy on it, your programmed false concepts will begin to fade away before your light and understanding. Awaken beings, do not need to defend themselves against false concepts. Awaken beings, do not defend themselves, not because they are not brave, wise or strong, but simply because, they know that false is false, and that only their loving truth is true.
We have all played with the ego’s false concepts long enough. We have all blocked God’s loving light from ourselves long enough. These blocks or false concepts, are supported by the ego as real, in order to keep itself from dissolving into the nothingness from which it came. In every moment, it is we who can slay the dragons that we have bought into as real. We all have our own individual dragons or demons to slay, that we have come here to better understand their illusionary nature, work through, conquer, overcome and share our victory with others. The more time, focus and energy, we have invested in our dragons, the bigger part of our life they seem to become. The more we have invested in them, the stronger and more in control of our life these dragons appear to be. The less time, focus and energy, we give to our dragons, the quicker they begin to starve and die off. In every moment, we can either feed or starve our dragons. In every moment, we can allow them to take a greater or lesser role in our life. Every moment, remember that it is you, who give your dragons their power. Remind yourself, that all your dragons do, is simply take you to a darker, less inhabitable, angrier, more confusion, depressing and chaotic place, within your heart and mind. Feed the dragons, the darkness in you no longer, and recall that you are the son or daughter of The Light. Begin to notice that when consciously aligned with The Light, that the darkness dissipates. Darkness can not be where The Light shines bright. The more we practice consciously, in every interaction possible, aligning with The Light, the less of the darkness, we will attract, encounter and experience.
Today, let us begin to recall, that we need not defend the truth in us, not because it is not worth defending, but because there is truly nothing to defend against. Be it through thought, word or emotion, no ones truth would ever attack you, because everyone’s truth is only love, and love only loves. Only what is false in another, the fairy tale that they believe of themselves and you, can seem to attack. But being, that it is only their false or sleeping self attacking you while they dream, they cannot affect you as long as you can see and understand, that all they are really doing is dreaming. Truth would never attack others or itself. Illusions, because they are nothing, can never affect truth when it attacks it. Today, whenever another does or says something that strokes the embers of your illusionary ego, when thoughts of judgment, anger, resentment or revenge, begin to burn within and threatening to erupt, stop, and recall that the everlasting truth in you, cannot be hurt, extinguished, disturbed, agitated nor attacked in any way, shape or form. Does the eternal need to defend itself against any little silly games that the ego plays within time? Does the indestructible need defense itself against some imaginary pebbles that are thrown its way? Does the sun defend itself against the clouds that attempt to block its light? Do not give reality to illusion, nor become a witness to the shadows in your dreams. Do not give the powerless a power they can not have. No longer buy into the lies of you as true. You are Love’s perfect creation, the energy of Love in physical form, this has been true since your creation, is true now, and will forever be true.
Today, let us practice, recalling and thus reinforcing, that only the truth in us is true. First, as often as we can throughout the day, let us practice recalling that we are Love’s creation, and thus that only the Love in us is true. Second, let us recall that we are all One, and thus what is true in one of us, is true in all of us. Third, let us recall that Love only loves, and thus when we are aligned with our true-self, we are offering only love to ourselves and others. Fourth, let us not judge but simply learn to recognized, when we are asleep or awake, dreaming or expressing our true nature, aligned with The Light or lost in the darkness. Those aligned with Love are awake to who in truth they are, those align with the darkness, are simply asleep and dreaming. Fifth, let us remember that when those who, through thought, word or emotion, attack us, it is not the truth in them doing so. Sixth, let us practice simply overlooking or forgiving their dreams of us, by reminding them of how one who is awake, acts, reacts and behaves, through their loving nature.
