Daily Inspiration: January 16. Our Physical Experience is a Reflection of Our Internal Condition

The ego is always having you look for an outside target to judge, blame, and criticize. By blaming everything outside of ourselves, the ego is unconsciously programming us to believe that everything outside of ourselves has power over us. Thinking that everything outside of us has power over us, only increases our levels of defense, anxiety and stress, and reduces our sense of safety, peace, and control. Imagine, yourself against seven plus billion people, not a very secure environment according to the ego’s mindset, that is focused on making us feel separate from each other, so that it can have us all to itself and under its control. Now, imagine you at One with those seven plus billion people, all your brothers and sisters, knowing that you all come from the same Source, and that Source is Love, what would you have to fear in them, if everyone shared in this One Truth, which is Love? What if you understood, that Love and Love’s expressions, are all that the truth in others, would ever see in you? What need for concern, stress or anxiety, would you ever experience, if you knew that everyone’s truth only desires to see the truth in you, only desires the best for you on your sacred journey. These awaken beings would know that we are all One, and so logically, they would want what is in your best interest, because it would also be in their best interest. All that is separating us from seeing this truth as true, is a lack of faith in the sacred nature of the journey, that each one of us has co-created with an all-loving God. When you start trusting in God’s plan, which is also your highest-will plan, instead of trusting in the ego’s plan for your life, peace results. Yes we are all One, but at the same time, each one of us has a very specific and necessary part to play, trust this, and as you do so, your judgments of self and others will begin to dissolve before your light and understanding.

In reality, the outside world is simply a reflection of our internal condition. If our minds are chaotic and stressed out, the outer world will appear more chaotic and stressful. Equally so, the more peace we have within our minds, the more peaceful our world appears. In either case, nothing truly changes in the outer world, other than our perception of it, our internal interpretation and condition. Regardless of how the world and those in it choose to grow and express themselves, if we are constantly supporting a state of peace within our minds, this world and those in it, will be experienced and seen in a more peaceful light. Thus, the true power to experience a peaceful life resides within us, not outside of us. Just imagine, what a relief it will be when you finally realize and believe, that how you experience this world, is not up to seven plus billion people ‘out there’, it’s up to the way that you view, interact and experience this world within your mind, and so you, after all is said and done, are responsible for your level of peace. We and only we can control what is within us, our internal condition, our level of peace, and so the true power to see and experience a peaceful world resides within us, not outside of us. Let us no longer go on an endless journey trying to change everyone around us, just so that we can feel more peaceful and joyful, instead let us go within, and see how we are blocking ourselves from experiencing peace and joy. Then let us consciously realign our internal condition with God’s Love, who He created us to be. When you are aligned with the energies of forgiveness, compassion, peace and joy, you are aligning with Love and viewing this world through Love’s eyes.

Today, let us, as often as we can remember to do so, remind ourselves that it is we who have the power to see and relate to this world as we so choose. We remember that it is we, and only we, who hold the key to our peace of mind. Today, when the ego once again demands you judge, blame, and criticize another and thus lose your peace of mind, let us instead stop, recall where the ego’s mindset has taken us before, recall that the ego simply wants us to give our power away to it, and then let us choose another more loving, peaceful, and productive direction. Today, let us say to ourselves: “Above all of the ego’s demands, today my goal is to take personal responsibility for my own thoughts, and thus for the way I see this world. I trust that I am in God’s caring hands, and that His Will will be done. I trust in the sacred and perfect journey that God and I have co-created together. I trust in the perfect and sacred journey that He has co-created with all others. All that occurs today and everyday, is always, in some way, shape or form, serving the highest good. I now know that when I align my internal condition, my mind, with God, and trust Him completely, stress and anxiety dissolves, and the state of peace results. Today, I acknowledge and support that Love created me lovingly, and so my truth is Love and only Love. If my truth is Love, and we are all One, then everyone’s truth must be Love. Understanding this, I rest at peace, assured because God is perfect, assured because I have created my journey with Him, assured because God can only create perfectly. Aligned with Love, each one of our seven plus billion journeys are all perfect and sacred, and will in one way or another, always help us all grow, heal and awaken to who in truth we are, to what we came here to do, and to who we came here to be and share with others.”

Today, when we are not at peace, let us not blame anything or anyone outside of us, instead let us take personal responsibility for how we are choosing to feel, and remember that how we define and experience the outer world, always begins as a thought within our own mind. Peace is a symbol that our minds understand that our journeys are a sacred co-creation with God, and thus perfect. Understanding this, we rest assured and in peace, knowing that all will always turn out all right. God being Love, only has our best interest in mind, and so a mind aligned with this way of thinking knows, that everything is working for our highest good, to help us grow, heal and awaken. A lack of peace is a symbol that shows us that our internal condition is not aligned with the Mind of God, that instead we are placing our faith in the ego, and because the ego itself is not real, it is nothing. When we place our faith in nothing, then fear, confusion and chaos result.

    I have been a student of A Course in Miracles since it’s inception and what you
    say in You have Chosen to Remember appears to be aligned with the Course. I call
    these Universal Truth. I know what my purpose is and try daily to be a ” living
    example” of these truths.

    I wish that my health is as simple as this. I am 65 and a Reiki Practioner. I have had 3 surgeries on my left knee for a knee replacement. I will be going in for my 4th surgery next week. After that I will need my right knee worked on I had/have no cartilage in either knee, and walking was so painful it brought tears to my eyes. I constantly feel guilty that I can not keep myself healthy and happy. I pray that my surgery goes well, the doctor has told me I will “max” out at 4 surgeries I try to keep my mind away from the final alternative. I really need a way of being safe and spiritually stable when a depression is so easy to fall into with my health playing tricks on me, Any serious ideas will be explored.
    Thank you,

      Thank you Jacque for being a part of our community. When it comes to helping you reduce pain, my recommendation would be to go to Robert Morse N.D. you tube channel, listen to what he has to say on health and healing, and make your own choice of what to do. I would imagine he would put you on a 6 month diet of fruits, berries and melons, with some herbs to help get rid of the inflammation in your body from lifestyle and all those surgeries. This type of diet should help ‘naturally’ alleviate a lot of the pain you are feeling. Peace. JBC

    Good Morning James, this piece really resonated with me. I subscribe to a website called Mercy for Animals. I try to carefully let others know how animals are treated before the are eaten, and all the steps in between. The treatment of animals that go to slaughter especially are upsetting to me! It’s disheartening!! I read the news online and see atrocities on children (especially difficult), women, men and animals. Please help me to understand why I feel too much compassion, that I break down, cry and feel sad. I wish I could do more to help others. Everyday I volunteer to pick up leftover food and take it to various shelters. When folks are asking for money, I offer to buy them food (sandwich, soup, fruit and a coffee/tea). I don’t have much, but I care about others (including animals) and their well being. During the cold we’ve had in Ontario, I put out black seed oil sunflower seeds and bird food for the animals that frequent the parkette next to me! I could say it all boils down to me not liking the mistreatment of animals and people. Or if I see an animal hit on the road. I will stop and move it to the side of the grass. I have only found a few dead animals (likely hit by vehicles). But I can’t stand the thought of others just running them over, and over, again! I have respect for ALL living things! I totally get that our thoughts create our reality!! So when these things upset me, I can ask, “What I am thinking right now?” But how can I stop from feeling these feelings? So what is it about me and my beliefs that causes me this grief? What I am not getting? Why do I feel sorrow, pain and sadness for all the things I mention above? Any comments are greatly appreciated!
    Warm Regards

      Georgina, thank you for your question. Let us remember that this life is but a blink in Eternity’s eyes. Let us remember that each one of our journeys is a sacred co-creation with God, and so do what brings you peace, but also know that we have all come down here, both human and animal, with a basic knowledge of what we were going to experience. Peace results when you are trusting in the journey that they have co-created with God. A lack of peace results when you are trusting in what you ego says that their journeys should look like. Yes, if ending slaughter houses is what you feel passionate about, then work towards that effort, but do so with purpose and passion leading your way, not anger and sadness. Your journey and exactly how much you are helping is always perfect for you, for God is Love and All, and so every step along your path is perfect. When you trust this, peace results. When you question the journey that you have co-created with the Source of the Universe, confusion, sadness, pain and inner conflict result. If you find a dead animal on the street, do not be sad, instead rejoice for they are now in Heaven, a place a million times more love filled then Earth. Grief results from a lack of trust in God. Grief is a way the Universe is calling out to you asking you to trust God more. Anytime that you find yourself in sorrow, simply know that you are trusting in the way that the ego has programmed you to see the world, instead of trusting in God. And so now, each time that the ego is trying to convince you of sorrow, pain, and sadness, do not put yourself down for this way of thinking, instead be grateful, thank the Universe that It is giving you the opportunity to trust in God more, and thus to experience greater peace of mind and joy. Remember, you are God’s child, you are forever worthy of His inheritance, and His inheritance is Love, and all of Love’s expressions, such as peace of mind and joy. Peace. JBC
