Daily Inspiration: February 1. The Thoughts You Support Shape the Life You Live
Today, when our minds temporarily yield to judgment of self or others, stress, or pessimism, let us remember, that thanks to free will, the amount of time that we spend in those states is purely up to us. Let us choose not just to unconsciously dwell in them, instead we remember that God is Love and All, thus this moment, as in all moments, when properly perceived, can use for our own growth, healing, and awakening. And so instead of sulking, treading water or even sinking into the ego’s swamp of negativity, let us take an honest look at the thoughts and emotions that we are thinking and experiencing, look for ways we can use them to heal, thank them for reminding us that what they offer us we do not want, and then with a tip of the hat, let them go on their way. Let us always keep in mind, that it is we who should be controlling our thoughts, it is not our thoughts who should be controlling us. If our thoughts are not taking us to where we desire to be, then through free will, we have every right to stop supporting them. Let us also recall, that because we are God’s, Love’s creations, only the loving thoughts in us are truly real and thus truly worthy of our support. In this world of duality, unloving thoughts, like those of judgment, stress and pessimism, are not in truth real. Yet, if we allow the ego to rule over us, to be thinking for us, then of course it will want to feed, fuel and focus on its illusionary thoughts, so much so, that they become a greater part of our lives, and the bigger part of our lives they become, the more real they will seem to be. But do not despair, for even if a large part of our life is supporting, through our focus on them, illusionary thoughts as real, that still does not make them real, they still and always will remain a fairy tale, that we can, when we begin to awaken, through free will, undo and unlearn.
Today, let us acknowledge and reinforce, that the time we spend with any specific thought or emotion, is up to us and us alone. And so today, when the ego once again demands judgment of self or others, we will simply smile, remember that kind of thinking has gotten us nowhere we desire to be, and instead we forgive. When it tells us we must bow down to anxiousness and stress, we will instead remember that God being Love and All, is always in our corner, and trust that things will turn out just fine. And when pessimism tries to place a dark cloud over our skies, we will remember that clouds may come and go, but the sun will always shine. Let us pay very close attention and watch how it is you, who has control over the magnifying or eliminating, of the thoughts you think, and thus of how you are, in every single moment, shaping your own life. It is truly incredible to think that every thought that you have and support, is in essence a brick that you are laying on the foundation of the life you are creating. Would you not find it logical and wise that it is you, and only you, who should have control over your thoughts, and thus over the life you live? Understand that when you are in alignment with the truth in you, the love that you were created to be, this shows that you do indeed have control over your thoughts, thinking, and mind. When your thoughts are of an unloving nature, when they are filled with such things as judgment of self or others, stress, anxiousness or pessimism, this shows that you are not in control of your thoughts, thinking and mind. Yes, you could think that you are in control, but if your thoughts are unloving, then it is your ego, your past programming, that is in truth controlling you, and thus shaping the life you are living. Yet do not despair, for now you have clear guidelines showing you when you are, and when you are not, in control of your thoughts.
Today, let us keep practicing, moment by moment, taking greater and greater control over the thoughts we are thinking, and thus the life we are shaping and living. We are blessed now to have remembered enough to understand that when our thoughts are of a loving nature, they are an expression and extension of the truth in us, and thus shows that it is we who are in control of our thoughts, thinking and mind. We now also understand that when our thoughts are of an unloving nature, it is our programmed self that has the wheel, that is driving our car, that is shaping our life. Understanding this is the first step in undoing the thoughts and life we do not want. Understanding this, we can then start consciously supporting and placing our time, focus and energy, on the thoughts that will indeed support the life that we desire. As God’s loving creations we are here to create as He created, through love, and through our example, show others that they too can do the same. What else but gratitude could you have for your Creator, when you remember that it is you who are ultimately in charge of what you create and thus of how you feel, participate in this world and live your life. Today, let us notice, that the amount of time that we spend in any negative or unloving state is, after all is said and done, purely up to us. Let us also note and be grateful that, through free will, we can in any moment, choose forgiveness over judgment, trust in God over-anxious stress filled thoughts, and optimism over pessimism. What a gift it is to know that we can let go of what no longer serve us, and that the life we want is always, just a simple choice away.
Today, let us remember, that it is we, not the ego, who should be in control of our thoughts, and thus of the life that we create. When we align with our Creator, we align with Love, and so let loving thoughts become a symbol, that we are thinking for ourselves, creating as we were meant to create. Equally so, let us be aware, that when we are thinking and acting out unloving thoughts, it is truly not us who is in control of our thoughts, thinking, and mind, it is the ego, the programmed self. Our mission on Earth, is to create as He created, through love, and in whichever ways are most specific to our individual gifts, passions, hopes and dreams. How blessed are we that the Creator of the Universe, has so much trust in us, that He is allowing us to create the life we want? Let us take this immense responsibility to heart, and start taking greater and greater control over the thoughts we think, by aligning them more and more with the love that is a reflection and representation of our true nature. As we bless this planet though our love filled thoughts and creation, because we are all One, not only do we bless ourselves, but also have the honor to bless our brothers and sisters, and even bless our Creator, our Source, Love Himself.
