Daily Inspiration: January 9. What is the Opposite of Love?
God is Love and All, therefore Love is All. The opposite of Love, in the world of duality is fear, but in truth, the opposite of Love, is nothing. Today, instead of once again reacting to nothing as something, and losing our peace of mind, let us make the conscious decision to simply overlook or forgive anything that is not real. By doing so, we symbolically turn the other cheek. Today, let us not defend, but not because we are not worth defending, but because there is truly nothing to defend against. For if only Love is real, what could anyone ever say to you that is real, that you would need to defend against? If only Love is real, then others can in reality only offer you Love or nothing. If only Love is true, then anything they say to you that does not come from Love, is not true. Why would an untruth, have any effect on you? An illusion, can only have an effect on you, if you believe it to be real. Recognize the illusion for what it is, and it will have no effect on you. Illusions being nothing, cannot affect you. Illusions being the opposite of Love, are nothing. Illusions being nothing, cannot affect one, who understands himself or herself as part of All. Today, let us recall that because God is Love and All, everything and everyone, in their own ways, are here only to help us recall and reinforce our true essence and nature. They are here to help us recall, that only the Love in us, is real. Today, all we practice doing is, seeing the true as true and the false as false, and no longer buying into the false as true. How much less judgment and more peace of mind would you experience, if you saw things only as they truly are? Today, no longer blame the world for your lack of peace. Instead, allow this lack of peace to become a symbol to you, that you are seeing and reacting to the false as true.
The only power that illusionary fear based thoughts have over us, is the power that we give to them. Only we, can give nothing, its power. But do not despair, for nothing, no matter how many times you multiply it by whatever power you choose to give to it, is still, and will always be, nothing. It is only the false power we provide to illusions or fear, that makes them appear to be real. The more power you give to them, through the time, focus and energy, that you invest in them, the more real and a bigger part of your life, they will appear to be and become. Within duality, fear may appear to be the opposite of Love. But, as we begin to awaken within duality, we begin to see that fear, is really just a call for Love, which is also a call for help and healing. Yes, the opposite of Love within duality, is a call for Love. Within duality, a call for Love, will always be answered by the awaken being, with Love and nothing else, because nothing else is truly real. Love then becomes the proper response to Love, and also the proper response to a call for Love. Yes, all those people who the ego has programmed you to judge and condemn, are really just lost and calling out for Love, for help and healing, in the best way they currently know how. These people are simply lost in a world that was made by the ego for the ego, and not for us. Allow me to ask you, if a child was lost, and asked you for directions, would you defend, judge, fear and condemn that child, or would you look to help, guide, heal and love, that child? Today, remember that anytime any of God’s children are doing anything other than loving you, what they are in truth doing is, asking for help and healing in the most rational way they currently know how.
Today, let us remember who our brothers and sisters truly are, Love’s creations. There can be no opposite to God’s creations, because there can be no opposite to All. God’s creations, no matter how lost and invested in the ego’s fairy tale they may appear to be, can only ever be, love, who God created them to be. Yet still, when we dream, we believe ourselves to be someone who would judge God’s creations. To judge God’s creations, is to judge God as wrong. You can never achieve true peace or joy, as long as you are unconsciously judging God as wrong. When we awaken, we will again see things as they truly are. When we see all others as Love’s creations, as who in truth they are, judgment will no longer be needed. Because judgment will not be needed, neither will we have a need for forgiveness. Today, let us remember, that it is not others’ actions, but our reactions to their actions, that give those actions their power. Today, simply choose to see Love’s creations as Love’s creations, and you will have peace. Let us practice seeing in all others, only their true nature, the peace that we ourselves desire to experience. It is we, who in the end, can buy into the ego’s programming, and see their actions through fear, as some sort of attack that we must defend against, or as a call for Love, as an appeal for help and healing. Today, let us all begin to awaken, for we have all slept long enough. Let us recall, that the only logical and appropriate response to our lost brothers and sisters calls for love, help and healing – is love, help and healing. Today, let us recall, that all that separates us from the state of peace, is our own perception. No longer put yourself down for reacting to illusions as real. Simply practice catching yourself when you are doing so, forgive your misperceptions of self and others, and return to peace.
Today, let us practice forgiving or overlooking anything that tries to place itself in opposition to God, Love, All. Anything that tries to place itself in opposition to All, is not true, an illusion and nothing else. The only power that any illusion can have over you, is the power that you give to it. Today, simply smile at the illusion’s attempt to blow our house down. Choose to see only the Truth, the Love in your brothers and sisters as true, and your judgments of them will begin to dissolve away before your light and understanding. Peace of mind results from seeing your brothers and sisters as who they truly are. A lack of peace results from seeing them as who they are not. If you lack peace, it is not they to blame, it is your belief, that the false in them is true, that removes you from being in alignment with the state of peace.
