Daily Inspiration: July 12. The Ego’s Imaginary Childish Games
As you become more and more aware of people unconsciously participating in the ego’s illusionary mindset, you will notice that their performance is like that of children playing imaginary games. When you see them as children playing games, this does not come from a sense of superiority, but from a deep understanding of their eternal innocence. When they judge you, now you understand that you need not judge them back, because that would be like you defending yourself against a child’s imaginary game. If they shape their little hand into an imaginary gun, regardless of how many illusionary bullets they shoot your way, they cannot hurt you. Your choice to not defend yourself is thus not a sign of weakness, but of clarity, knowledge and strength. Your inner strength comes from knowing that you remain always as God created you, and that there is nothing, no illusionary thoughts or words within the ego’s fairy tale, that can change the changeless in you, or replace the irreplaceable in you. You understand that you do not need defend yourself, not because you are not worth defending, but because there is truly nothing to defend against. Imagine a world, where you no longer need to defend yourself against the shadows in your dreams. Imagine a world, where you can forgive or simply overlook the little games that those who remain asleep wish that you join them in. Imagine a world, where peace of mind, clarity, joy and understanding, are your constant companions. This world is always available to you, even while you sleep. Yes, even if you have forgotten that you are dreaming and buying into the ego’s mindset as real, even then, God patiently and lovingly awaits for you to awaken. Awaken my dear friend, and when you do, you will realize, that you have always been in God’s arms, that you have never in truth left Him or Him you.
How much more of our lives do we need to continue to waste away and sacrifice to, defending ourselves from others imaginary judgmental bullets. If we decide to duck when such an imaginary bullet is fired our way, let us duck, but with a smile, knowing that no matter how much the child likes such games, that sooner or later they will get tired of playing it, and go unto something new. We do not need to condemn that child for the game they are choosing to play. We do not need to become angry or resentful of the imaginary bullets that are flying our way. We do not need to punish ourselves for thinking that the child shot us because he or she thinks of us as less than or worth injuring. In truth, when we remember that one of their shots is imaginary, false and not real, so too will we get, that all of their shots are imaginary, false and not real. Today, simply smile at the illusions that come your way, and at the children as they play their seemingly important and imaginary games. Allow your smile to be a symbol, that says, that you have indeed awakened, and are now an adult. Adults know when they are playing a child’s game, and they will act appropriately, compassionately, respectfully, and lovingly. They will set, through their example, the tone for the game, and through this tone the child will feel safe, secure, joyous and loved. Today, let us be the adults, but again not because we are better than, not because we feel superior, but from a place of love and understanding. Today, our forgiveness of other people’s judgment filled dreams, will symbolize to us, that we are adults, awake and being the love that in truth we are. Let us today, set an example for our children, for those brothers and sisters that remain asleep, and by doing so, help guide them back to a place of perfect peace.
Today, let us remember, that when we consciously choose to not defend ourselves, when we turn the other cheek, we are actually reinforcing our clarity, knowledge and strength. When there is no longer judgment, self-judgment, or the endless need to protect ourselves against illusions, the state of peace, our natural state, results. Today, let us check ourselves throughout the day and ask ourselves: “Am I at peace.” If you are at peace, give yourself a mental pat on the back, and continue to serve as an example of who we, as consciously aware adults, can be. If you are not at peace, do not punish yourself by judging yourself or others, instead remember that you have simply bought into the ego’s childish games, correct your behavior, align with your loving nature, and from there return to the state of peace. We are all, no matter if we are awake or asleep, non-judgmental or judgmental, equally the perfect and sacred children of God. Sometimes we may take that child part too seriously, but that is ok, a child is just a child for a little while, and most children do desire to some day become grown ups. Children will indeed grow up, be patient and kind, be generous and loving, for in the end we are all One, and so how we choose to experience them, can serve to remind us, that we all indeed are worthy of God perfect Love and understanding. God is Love and All, God loves All because He is Love, would it not seem wise to at least try to follow God’s example as closely as we can? Let us today, take seriously, the opportunity that we have, because we are awake, to represent God on Earth. There is no greater gift that we can offer the children of this world, then to be an example of our loving light, and share this light with them. Let us today, share the light with them, not because of what they do or do not do, not because of what they say or do not say, but simple because, of who they are, God’s children, our brothers and sisters.
Today, let us practice seeing those who judge us, not as mean, bad or evil, but simply as asleep to who in truth they are. If we judge those that judge us, that simply means that we too are asleep. Let us awaken from the ego’s dream, and choose to no longer sacrifice our time, energy, peace of mind and joy, to judging those who are unaware of their loving nature. Instead, let us use those moments, when judgment comes at us, as a call from the Universe, asking us to become a symbol of the awaken mind, and forgive them their fantasies of us. When we forgive or overlook others dreams or fantasies of us, and align with our loving nature, what we are in essence saying, is that we are worthy of peace of mind and joy. It is when we stand steady and hold up the lantern of worth, peace and joy, before their judgments, that they will begin to see, that there is indeed a way out of the darkness and back into the light.
