Daily Inspiration: February 4. Becoming Your Greatest Supporter
On a day in day out basis, there is no one who will judge and criticize, lift you up or pull you down, more than you will. No one in this life will speak to you, advise you, direct or misdirect you, more than you will. It is you who holds the key to how you treat yourself, and because we are all One, it is also you who holds the key to how ‘others’ will, through your reactions to their actions, treat you. Conscious or unconsciously, you teach people how to treat you. What you teach them, will be a reflection of how you treat yourself and what you think you are worthy of. My dear friend, as God’s loving creation, you are worthy of love and being treated with kindness and respect. But to truly remember and understand this, you must first practice treating yourself with kindness and respect, and as you do, others will meet you, and be guided to treating you, by the path that you yourself have craved out. The truth in you is Love, and only the truth in you is true. Kindness and respect are expressions of love, and so when you are aligned with your truth, you are kind and respectful to yourself. We are all One, and so when you are aligned with your truth, you are also equally kind and respectful to all others. When you are not kind or respectful of others, because we are all One, you are not being kind and respectful to parts of yourself. You can not achieve true everlasting peace of mind and joy as long as you are mistreating any part of you. You, as God’s creation, are forever worthy of kindness and respect, but you will never fully understand or believe this until you become kind and respectful of all others. Today, when the ego once again demands that you judge, be unkind or disrespect a brother or sister, remember that we are all One, and so what the ego is doing is just secretly teaching you to be judgmental, unkind and disrespectful to yourself. Today, be thankful to all the brothers and sisters who are helping you practice being kind and respecting yourself more completely, by being kind and respecting them.
Just as with kindness and respect, the degree to which you allow people to love and support you, is directly correlated to the degree to which you have learned to love and support yourself. And so today, when you judge and criticize yourself, consciously catch yourself doing so, stop, and then make the conscious decision to shift your thinking and internal dialogue to one that yes challenges, but always loves and supports you. What a great gift this day can become, if you keep reminding yourself: “Yes, I control my thoughts, my thoughts do not control me. I can be and become my greatest supporter. I can teach others, through the example of how I treat myself, how to treat me. I am worthy of love, kindness, respect and being supported, but to truly and completely believe this truth as true, I must remember to treat all others, exactly as I would want and deserve to be treated.” When you truly learn to become your greatest supporter, because we are all One, you will serve as a light in the darkness, guiding others to remembering, how they could also be treating themselves and all others. Your brothers and sisters, because we are all One, are in reality parts of you, and thus if you are not treating them with love and support, then you are failing to love and support your whole self. You will never find true everlasting peace of mind and joy when you are unconsciously failing to love and support parts of yourself. All you need do, to experience true peace of mind and joy, is to love, respect and support, your Whole Self, nothing more than that is ever asked of you. Today, let us practice loving and supporting all others, let us even thank them for the opportunity to do this, for the more that we do so, the more we will see, how truly worthy we ourselves are, of being loved and supported.
Today, as we awaken, let us look deep into the mirror and say to ourselves “Today, above all else, I will be and become, my greatest supporter. I will practice catching myself quicker and quicker when I am being too self-critical, then I will offer gratitude that I now have the wisdom to know, that it is I who control my thoughts, and that my thoughts do not control me. Thus, I now consciously shift my thinking to one that loves, supports, and encourages me. Equally so, I today acknowledge that all my brothers, sisters and I are One, and so for me to fully understand how to love, respect and support myself, I will make the conscious choice, to love, respect and support, all others, exactly as I would want to be loved, respected and supported.” Respect, support, encouragement, kindness, compassion, gratitude, wisdom, all these are expressions of Love, and Love is our Creator. Our Creator created us in His image and thus we are in the most literal sense, Love in physical form. Today, let us recognize and accept this fact as true, by loving and supporting all those who we meet along the way. When you truly recognize that you are God’s child, and that your brothers and sisters are One with you, you will become your greatest supporter, because there will be no part of you that you will be withholding love and support from. We have already come far in our awakening journey. In order to complete this journey, and return Home with our heads held high, let us take our brother’s and sister’s hand, and guide to a place of perfect peace. Let us, through our words, and by the way we treat them, remind them, that they are all worthy of being love and supported, and not because of anything they have ever done or not done, but because of who they are.
Today, let us see each and every brother and sister as who they truly are, a part of ourselves. If everyone is a part of us, then if we are not being loving and supportive of them, then it is we who are withholding love and support from ourselves. Let us practice letting go of our judgments and criticism by remembering, that God can only create perfectly. The more we practice letting go of our judgments and criticism of others, the more this will symbolize a greater trust in God, and in the plan that God has created with and for them. They, are in essence just parts of us, thus the less we judge and criticism them, the less judgmental and critical we will become of ourselves. In doing so, we recognize the perfect nature of each and every one of us, and because we are all One, we are recognizing the perfect nature of each and every part of us. It is by doing so, by loving and supporting our whole self, that we can begin to become, our greatest supporter.
