Daily Inspiration: August 24. The Illusionary Nature of the Unforgiving Mind
The unforgiving mind is asleep to its true nature. Having been programmed by the ego to believe in an illusionary world as true, it feels lost, wounded, broken and burden, by the weight of its own judgments. Unconsciously valuing chaos more than peace, it wallows stewing in the turmoil of its fictional world. Sad and without hope, it perilously peers into the deep darkness just waiting to be attacked. Confused, angry and afraid, it believes its two choice are either to strike, or to be victimized. Never dropping judgment’s sword, its body tires, feels stressed, and weakens. Yet no matter how the unforgiving mind acts, what it secretly desires most is to find rest, put down the sword, and finally experience peace of mind and joy that deep down inside it knows that it deserves. This is why today you have been placed on its path, to offer hope to the hopeless, rest to the weary, and peace to those who know only of the pain of the sword. You have been placed on the path of the unforgiving mind, to help it see, that there is indeed another way, a better way, a way that can lead it from sleep to awakening, from confusion and chaos to clarity and calm, and from pain to ever lasting peace. Today, whenever an unforgiving mind crosses your pass, promise yourself not to judge those that sleep for dreaming. You my dear one, you who are constantly making the conscious choice to see only the loving eternal nature in your brother and sister, are here as a light within the darkness, as a spring in a desert world dried out by its beliefs in isolation, anger, resentment, revenge and regret. You my dear one, have been chosen to bring peace and understanding to those led astray by the ego’s program. Today, when the unforgiving mind confronts you, smile, and know that God would have not place you before it, unless He knew that you would comfort and show compassion to His lost child.
We have all, walked the path of the unforgiving mind. We have all fought within the emotionally bloody battles of the ego’s judgment filled wars. We have all been wounded time after time because we had put our faith in a fictional tale that has never had our best interest in mind. We all within us carry the memory of the carnage, left behind by those trained to only see the dark and false as true. All the unforgiving mind does is strike at the shadows in its dreams, and then confusingly and in fear, wonder why they don’t die off. The unforgiving mind does not know that it is in the dream state, blindfolded before its loving light. Judgment of self and others, as long as you choose to fight the ego’s fight, through the programming of the unforgiving mind, within a fairy tale only real within the ego’s mindset, will always appear to be real, so long as you unconsciously insist on spending your time, focus and energy, fighting and defending yourself against the fear based shadows in your dreams. How much longer will we allow the unforgiving mind, the unenlightened mind, to try to lead us in the darkness? How many more of its battles must we fight in order to finally feel safe, secure and at peace? How many more wounded victims must it leave behind on its war path before it finally cries out for help, healing, freedom and peace? Have you not tired of the constant battles, the back and forth, the back and forth, and back and forth again? How much longer will you support and feed with your time, focus, and energy the unforgiving mind’s soldiers of anger, resentment, revenge and regret? How much more of its suffering, pain, confusion, darkness and chaos will you allow into your life? When will enough, finally be enough?
Today, let us return to the light, accept the path of peace, and thus bring clarity and healing to the unforgiving mind. To do so you must consciously choose to lay down your own sword of judgment, and enter the battlefield with your arms wide open and your head held high. You enter the battlefield with the knowledge, absolute trust, and certainty, that only the love of God in you is truly real, and because we are all One, only the love of God in all others is truly real. You enter the field knowing that the ego’s illusions are but illusions, its nightmares are but dreams, its darkness is but a lack of light, and that the eternal truth in you can never, nor will ever be, struck down by the ego’s fictional sword of judgment. You enter the field with the knowledge and certainty that the unforgiving mind can never strike down, nor even touch, your truth, the eternal and eternity in you. Your truth is an expression of the Love that God is, and the Love that God is, is All. The opposite of All is nothing, and therefore nothing, no matter how many ways, through the unforgiving mind, the ego tries to disguise it, can’t never hurt, confuse or darken, the love that is your true eternal essence. It is with this understanding and mindset that you are raised above and beyond the battlefield. Above the battlefield, you will look upon all those still buying into their fear based dreams as true. Above the battlefield, you will no longer have the need to judge those that are unaware and asleep to the truth in them. Just as you watch the beauty of your child while he or she sleeps, so to will you view all your brothers and sisters in this same light. As they toss and turn, defend and fight, unaware of their true nature, lost, confused and afraid within their dreams, you will gently and lovingly place your hand upon their head, caress their scalp, move your fingers through their hair, and whisper to them that it is now time to awaken, time to leave their dreams behind, time to encounter, experience and enjoy the light of a brand new day.
Today, let us help the unforgiving mind to awaken from its judgment and fear based dreams. Think of a person or situation, within the unforgiving mind’s dream, that you have yet to bless with your forgiveness. Then ask yourself, that part of you that is awake, does it desire to be happy or to be right, to experience the light of a brand new day or to remain imprison within a darken mindset asleep to its true nature, to be free from having to continue to carry the burdens of its judgments or to continue to endlessly toss and turn at night and thus never experience true rest or peace? Has the unforgiving mind not made you suffer long enough? Is it not your own judgments that are holding you chained up and thus a prisoner to your past? When will you finally decide that enough is enough? How many more internal mindless battles must you fight to realize that as long as you see your dreams as real, that you will not escape from them? Forgive, what do you truly have to lose by ending your own nightmares? Forgive, and awaken a mind asleep. Forgive, and finally find true lasting rest and peace.
