Daily Inspiration: December 19. Turning Condemnation Into Compassion
Today, let us elevate, by making the past targets of our condemnation, the present recipient of our compassion. In this time of Christmas, let us be charitable enough to offer ourselves the opportunity to find peace in areas of our lives that are asking to be blessed and healed. Are you not worthy of peace? Are we not all One? Would it then not make sense to offer peace to all others that we have been withholding peace from, so that we may also experience the state of peace? This opportunity is being offer to us by God, helping us practice forgiving condemnation and offering compassion, so that we too may experience a re-alignment with our Source Who Is Love, and peace which is one of the numerous expressions of Love. You are worthy of God’s Love, and it is this memory that you are, through your thoughts, words, and actions, being reminded of today. Would you not be grateful to those, who through their presence in your life, are offering you the opportunity to recall that you are worthy of peace, and thus are worthy of God’s Love? Today, whoever or whatever we believe is robbing us of peace, let us wholeheartedly offer them the peace that we ourselves desire to experience. What do we truly have to lose by shifting our thinking from a mindset that is based on condemnation, anger, and revenge, to one that is based on compassion, forgiveness, and peace? Sure the ego may have so deeply programmed us to believe in its mindset that offering compassion and forgiveness to a specific someone, may seem unappealing or even impossible to do, but ask yourself, are your thoughts of condemnation, anger, and revenge, nourishing or poisoning you? What kind of example are we setting for our children when they see us poisoning ourselves by reacting with condemnation to condemnation, with anger to anger, and with revenge to revenge? Today, let us rise above the ego’s battlefields, and offer all others, what we would want our children to experience and be nourished by.
How many more times must we react with anger, condemnation and revenge, in order to see and understand that those types of reactions are offering us nothing that we truly want? If they are offering us nothing we truly desire, would not their opposite maybe offer us what we want? If anger and condemnation offer us nothing we truly want, would forgiveness and compassion not offer us what we want? Being that we are God’s creations, and God is Love, would we, as His creations not want to be in alignment with Love? Why would we ever consciously not want to align with Love? And so when you find yourself not aligned with Love, do not put yourself or others down for this, simply see that you are in this state of mind, because you are in an unconscious state of mind, aligned with the ego’s programs and mindset. Now, when you find yourself in alignment with the ego’s mindset, simply use this as a trigger mechanism to help you go from the unconscious state to the conscious state. Simple ask yourself: Does anger and condemnation bring me in alignment with Love, or does forgiveness and compassion do this for me? If forgiveness and compassion gets you closer to Love, would it not seem rational to be offering them, instead of anger and condemnation? Today, no matter how hard the ego demands that we become angry and condemn another, let us remember that what the ego demands is not going to offer us anything that we want. Let us then decline its request, and instead choose to offer others the thoughts, words, and actions that will most closely align us with Love. The more we offer forgiveness and compassion, the more natural this way of being will become. By offering forgiveness and compassion, both expressions of Love, we will be allowing God to flow through us and throughout our day.
Let us today remember that we are all One, and so what we offer others, we will get to experience ourselves. Let us ask ourselves, do we want condemnation flowing through us and throughout our day, or would compassion seem like a kinder and more nourishing companion? Today, let us with our heads held high, practice declining the ego’s demands to keep on fueling its judgment based mindset. Let us remember that every time that we get to practice overruling the ego, we will achieve greater and greater control over our thoughts and minds. Today, allow your compassionate response, when the ego demands condemnation, to be a symbol to you are awakening to the fact, that as Love’s creation, you are indeed worthy of the state of peace. What if for just one day we had the courage to dive into the deepest parts of our hearts and souls to find those remaining pearls of mercy? Today, if we can’t find these pearls within ourselves, then we invite God to find them for us, to forgive our brothers and sisters for us, until we find the wisdom to align with His thinking. Today, let us ask Love to lead us, lighting the way back to the state of peace. Yet, if we feel that we not strong enough or ready to forgive another, let us not despair, instead let us say to our Creator: “Today, I am consciously surrendering to You, that illusionary part of me, that sees any gain in condemnation, anger, and revenge. Today, I am making a conscious decision to place my complete trust in Your Mercy and Grace. I now ask You, from the deepest part of my heart and soul, to forgive my brothers and sisters for me, and to filled my all my thoughts of them with Your Compassion, Peace, Mercy, Love, and Understanding.”
Today, anytime that the ego tries to have you condemn yourself or another, let that trigger in you the memory that today’s goal is to offer compassion to all who you think of or meet. The more you make the conscious choice to offer compassion over condemnation, the more natural this choice will become, and the more peace of mind you will experience from your choice. Would the appropriate response to someone who is, through their presence in your life, offering you to opportunities to practice aligning with the state of peace, not be one of gratitude? And so every time that we are being offer the opportunity to practice choosing compassion over condemnation, let us offer our brothers and sisters gratitude for helping us awaken to who in truth we. We are God’s creations, Love’s creations, and peace is an expression of Love, and so when we align with peace we are allowing God to flow through us and throughout our day, for this, let us offer all those who are participating in our awakening process, our gratitude.
