Daily Inspiration: January 6. Turning Hopelessness Into Hope.
When we are buying into the ego’s false concepts as true, unconscious as it may be, we are choosing hopelessness over hope, darkness over light, and a fear based mindset over God’s Love. This choosing can manifest itself in numerous forms, such as those of choosing judgment over forgiveness, anger over peace, condemnation over compassion, sadness over joy, or worry over trust. Today, if we find ourselves entertaining the ego’s mindset, let us not put ourselves or others down for being in this state of unconsciousness. Instead, let this trigger in us, the desire to take our thinking, and thus minds, back from the ego. The more we get to practice making the conscious decision to turn away from ego’s mindset, the more in control we will feel over our own thoughts, and thus of over the life we live. When stuck within the ego’s mindset, do not despair, simply recall the gift of free will, and use it to leave the darkness and return to the light. Hopelessness in not our Home, hope is. Every moment, thanks to God’s gift of free will, of mercy and grace, can bring hope back into what the ego’s has tried to convince us is a hopeless situation or relationship. All that God, Love is, leads us to hope. To move in the direction of hope, align with God, and do what Love would do. Only because the ego has programmed to ‘act’ a certain way, does not mean that we have to keep on allowing the blind lead us. Peace of mind, joy, compassion, hope, forgiveness, gratitude, all these are concepts that fill the mind of one, who has regained control over his or her own thinking, and thus is in tune with their loving nature. When feeling lost, hopeless and in despair, stop that line of thought, breath deeply and recall, that thanks to free will, the final choice of what thoughts we entertain and thus experience, are ours and ours alone to make. No one other than you, holds the key to your peace of mind, hope and joy.
Today, let us practice paying close attention, enough to realize, when we are, or are not, in control of our own thinking, and thus of our minds and life. When our minds are not aligning with loving thoughts, it is the ego and its programs, who is in control of our thinking, and thus of our lives. When our thoughts are aligned with Love, it is we who in alignment with our Source, are in control of our thinking. Nothing other than the Love that created us is true. Hope, is an expression and extension of Love. Hopelessness, is a sense of homelessness, an expression of one who has forgotten their true Source, Home and foundation. Hopelessness, just as other ego-centered false concepts, such as those of judgment, anger, condemnation, sadness, worry and hate, are not our truth. Only when we place our time, focus and energy, on them, do they appear to be real. Focus fully on your truth, on your loving essence, nature and understanding that we are all One, and they cease to exist. Do not despair, your time in the ego’s grip will not be long. The ego is self-destructive, and thus more we use it, the more we realize its useless nature. This is its gift to us, to use its mindset long enough to realize its lack of utility. God “allows” us to experience the ego’s tools and mindset enough times in order that we get, how unlike and unaligned to the truth in us they are. Once we realize their illusionary and useless nature, we let them go, and become an example to others, that false concepts such as hopelessness, need not rule over us. This understanding helps return us back into alignment with hope, with the light in us. Still, know that the ego will not go quietly into the night. When it again tries to have you buy into one of it false concepts as true, simply remember where the ego’s “advice” has led you, then take back control of your mind and thinking, and aligned them with The light.
Today, let us awaken to the realization, that we no longer need to buy into the ego’s false concept of hopelessness, as true. Today, let us see that feeling of hopelessness, not as a way to put yourself or others down, but as a gift, an opportunity to truly feel and experience, how different it is to the loving truth in us. It will be by bringing our misperceptions up to the surface light, where we will be able to see it for what it really is, not Love, not hope, not us. Let us remember, that a sense of hopelessness, must always begin with just one thought. Let us recall that we, thanks to free will, always have control over that thought. If we make the decision to stop supporting, feeding and thus strengthening the thoughts that support the delusion of hopelessness, then hopelessness must begin to dissolve back into the nothingness from which it first came. Hopelessness could never exist within one who is fully aligned with Love, who trust that there is One whose true desire is our peace, joy and well-being. Hopelessness could never bring joy to the joyless, peace to those who are worried and anxious, and light and understanding to those lost in the dark, only Love, only the Truth in us can. Today, let us make the conscious decision to no longer feed hopelessness with our time, focus and energy. Let us instead use such opportunities to practice choosing and aligning with our All-Loving Source. Let us allow Love, through our support of it, to grow in us and guide us. As we allow Love to guide us, as we learn to choose with Love, our light will shine brighter and brighter each day. Let us pray that this light will reach those who are feeling hopeless, those who have yet to recall their true and eternal, essence, nature and home.
Today, if a sense of hopelessness comes knocking at your mind’s door, use it, but not to put yourself or others down, but instead to trigger in you, the memory of the gift of free will. You no longer need to feed and fuel thoughts that do not lead you to the life you want. End your support for the thoughts that fuel the false concept of hopelessness, place that same time, focus, energy and emotion, into thoughts of hope, and begin to watch your despair vanish before your light and understanding. You are your Creator’s creation, love in physical form. Do you not desire the most beautiful, fruitful and hope filled life for your children? Do you not think that your Father is at least as generous and loving as you? Today, accept God’s inheritance, say yes to Love and all of its expressions, such of those of peace, hope and joy. Peace, hope and joy, being Love’s expressions are your brothers and sisters. Invite your family to bring healing to your life, and offer this same gift of healing and hope, to all of God’s children, to all that He today, sends your way.
