Daily Inspiration: July 19. The Ego and the Illusion of Separation
One of the ego’s main fuel sources is judgment. Thus, for the ego to survive, it must convince us, that it is safe for us to judge others. It does this by programing us to focus on the apparent temporal separate nature of our bodies, instead of the eternal sameness in our souls. It is key for the ego to convince us our separateness, because once we believe this; we can judge “others” without that judgment hurting or having a negative effect on us. The ego’s reward system tells us, that our judgments of others will strengthen us, and weaken them, and thus give us power over them. And yet, as always, the ego’s illusionary thinking is in complete opposition to the truth. In reality, any and all attack filled judgments, regardless how “in the right” the ego insists that we are, only weakens us. They weaken us, because since we are all One, what we are really doing, is unconsciously attacking ourselves through our own thoughts. We will never be able to achieve true peace of mind and joy, when we are constantly unconsciously attacking ourselves through our own thoughts. Equally so, because we are all One, when we attack another, we are in essence attacking God, and this produces in us a sense of unconscious guilt, uncertainty, and fear. True peace of mind and joy cannot be found if we are living our lives in a constant unconscious state of guilt, uncertainty and fear. Today, let us start taking greater personal responsibility for the thoughts we are thinking. Let us notice that when we focus on attack thoughts, we make them a bigger part of our life, and for that, they only seem to bring us guilt, uncertainty and fear. But the good news is this: If it is we who are thinking and focusing on our judgmental thoughts, then it is also we who can choose to end such efforts and behavior. Let us not despair and recall, that it is always we who hold the power over the thoughts we think, thus it is we who in the end, decide our levels of guilt, uncertainty and fear.
Because of our inherent Oneness, there is nothing you can say, think of, or do, to another, that you don’t experience, in some way, shape or form, yourself. In the moment you can either be focused on your truth, which is Love, Who is All, or on your illusionary fear, which is the opposite of All, which is nothing. Thus, in every moment, you can focus on and experience Love expressions such as those of forgiveness, peace and joy, or fear’s expressions such as those of judgment, guilt and uncertainty. One choice nourishes your heart and soul, the other choice poisons you. Which choice do you think will revitalize and fulfill you, and which one will slowly seem to corrode you, and make you sad and sick? You, your sister and brother are One, and thus today let us remember that how we treat and think of them, is consciously or not, how we treating and thinking of ourselves. And to go one step further, how we treat others is what we ourselves unconsciously believe we are worthy of experiencing. Still, no matter the amount of so-call mistakes we make, let us not despair, for God is Love and All, and thus everything that we bring into our experience, will in some way, shape or form, be used by God for good, for our growth, healing and awakening. Thus, what we are bringing into our experience, when seen from a place of Love, is always something that we can benefit from. If we can benefit from all our experiences, what need would there be for judgment of self or others? One who is aligned with this understanding, achieves the state of peace. Peace then becomes is a symbol, of one who understands the perfect and sacred nature of their experience.
Today, let us make the conscious decision to start shining our light, becoming aware, of the insidious nature of the ego’s false concept of separation. Let us notice and feel, how our thoughts, words, actions and reactions, towards others, affects us. Let us notice, that when we are kind and forgiving to others, these actions have a way of bringing us peace of mind, love and joy. Equally so, let us notice, that when we react or act in a judgmental, angry or hateful manner towards ‘others’, this end up darkening our own path, making us feel isolated, confused and guilt ridden. Let us notice, how acting or reacting to others, in a kind and forgiving way, allows us to rest our head on our pillow and fall peacefully to sleep. Equally so, when we act and react with judgment, anger or hate, towards others, its hard for us to fall asleep, as we toss and turn throughout the night. Are you not worthy of feeling and experiencing all of your Creator Loving’s expressions such as those of peace of mind, joy, forgiveness, compassion and kindness? Yes, my dear one, you, as Love’s creation, are forever worthy of all of them. Therefore, offer them to all others, so that these energies may forever surround you in their warm, gentle and welcoming embrace. If God desire all His children to experience and be embraced by all of Love’s expressions, would it not make sense to follow His example, way, path and lead? We are all One, the love that One deserves, all deserve. Today, if you find yourself alone, feeling separate from others, withholding any of Love’s expressions from anyone, then know, that if you place yourself in opposition to your true nature, that you are withholding, all of Love’s expressions and experiences, from yourself.
Today, let us practice deciphering the symbols of Oneness and of separation. When we align our thoughts with Oneness, we support and bring into our experience such energies as forgiveness, compassion, love, peace, joy and understanding. When we align our thoughts with separation, we support and bring into our experience such energies as those of judging oneself and others, anxiousness, anger, resentment and hate. Let us recall, that it is we who have control over the thoughts we think, and thus of the life that we experience. All these energies and emotions, begin simply as a thought within our minds. Only we can decide how much we think and entertain a thought. Thus the thought, energy or emotion, only exist as long as we support it with our time and focus. Today, let us stop blaming the outer world and those in it for how we are experiencing our reality, and start shifting our own thinking, to support the thoughts, state of mind and life, that we desire to experience.
