Daily Inspiration: July 20. Why Do We Keep Repeating Patterns?
One who is truly present has forgiven the past and released the future. It is within the eternal present moment where the Love and Peace of God forever reside. As Love’s creations, when we are actually within the present moment, we become a reflection of this Love. When we see or do anything other than Love, like becoming judgmental or angry, these are symbols that we have dragged our past programming into the present, and thus are simply repeating the past. This behavior covers over the present moment, and thus we end up living only in the past. In this state of mind, we never get to see, experience or understand, what is truly going on. In this state of mind, this extension of the past into the present, then continues unto the future. The future then never becomes what it should have been. The present and future then only becomes a reflection and repetition of our past. Is it any wonder why we then keep on repeating patterns? We keep repeating past patterns, because we have never truly left, forgiven, let go of, or released, the past. If you desire to leave the past in the past, then a useful tool to do so is forgiveness. Each and every time that the ego would have you judge yourself or others, recall, that you no longer desire to drag the past into the present. Instead, forgive it, and all those who were a part of it, including yourself. Let them all go in peace, by blessing them when the ego would have you curse them. It is this shift in perception, that will free you to return back to the present moment, your true home here on Earth. When you return to the present moment, you can begin to experience life, in alignment with God’s vision, through love, as it was truly meant to be enjoyed and shared.
We are in a fog of our own making, and yet we curse the weather for it. We are quicker to anger, feel tire, stressed, carry the weight of the world on our shoulders, which is really the weight of the past on our shoulders, and still we wonder why we are feeling fatigued while our frustration grows. We blame everyone else for how we feel, simply because we have forgotten that we are all One, and thus do not realize, that everyone else is simply an outward reflection of our internal condition. Let us today return to the present moment, where the Love and Peace of God forever resides. Let us make the conscious choice to value God’s Love, more than the ego’s past programs, so that we may finally see and experience, what is really going on. Because only the present moment is truly real, and because Love is all that is truly real, if you are not seeing and experiencing Love, then you are actually lost and confused, stuck back in a place and time that long ago has past. Judgment, anger, anxiousness, resentment and thoughts of revenge, are all symbols of one who in stuck in the past. Ask yourself, has this mindset ever served you, and made your life more joyful and peaceful? If not, why do you continue to serve and support it? Have you not tired of using the ego’s tools that only seem to bring about inner conflict, confusion, chaos, suffering and pain? Is it not time to begin looking for a kinder, gentler, and more compassionate, loving and productive way, of existing on this planet? Begin this journey by offering all others the exact opposite of what the ego would demand. When it demands judgment, offer forgiveness, when it calls out for anger, offer compassion, when it insist upon resentment and revenge, offer them peace and understanding.
Today, let us make the conscious choice to forgive, release the past, free the future, and become the physical expressions of the Love that is reflective of one who is in alignment with the present moment. When the ego tries to make us see or react to a brother or sister through the trained patterns of judgment and anger, we will make the conscious choice to reject its programming, see their actions instead as a call for Love, and then offer them this Love in whichever ways serve the moment best. Forgiveness, compassion, kindness and understanding, are all symbols of our loving nature. Today, when the ego demands that we fuel its mindset with our judgments, let us break this pattern, by understanding that our brothers and sisters are simply calling out for love in the best way they currently know how. This will help us practice releasing our judgment centered programs, and through forgiveness, return to the peace that exist within the eternal now. Imagine, the inner power and peace you will feel, when this world demands judgment but you instead forgive. Imagine, the fulfillment you will feel when you are able to offer compassion instead of condemnation. Imagine, being kind to someone the ego insists is deserving of rejection. All this is possible, when we reject our past patterns, and return to the now, in alignment with the Love that is a reflective of the present moment. Love is who our Creator is, and who He created us to be. Today, let us make the conscious decision, to no longer repeat and serve patterns, that are not serving us. Free-will offers you this opportunity and responsibility. You are responsible for the thoughts that power your actions and reactions. Today, let us make the conscious decision to serve only Love, and support only loving thoughts as true, in order to begin to see, the present moment, as the gift that it truly is.
Today, let us practice understanding the symbols of one who is stuck in the past, in essence repeating past patterns. Anytime we are being judgmental, anxious, angry, resentful, jealous, or hateful, these are all reflections and expressions of one who is stuck repeating learned past patterns. When we repeat past patterns, our present and future simply become an extension of our past. In essence, the ego through its programs, ends up living our lives for us. It is for this reasons that we end up feeling unfulfilled, lost, off balanced, confused and without purpose. Today, in order to practice breaking free from these past patterns, let us make the conscious decision to focus only on supporting our loving nature as true, and forgiving, overlooking or letting go of, everything else. Let us recall, that God is Love and All, and thus when we are not seeing, experiencing or expressing Love, we are either stuck in the past or lost in the future. It is only within the now, aligned with our loving nature, that our true destiny can be experienced and enjoy.
