Daily Inspiration: July 30. Judgment Is Not Possible Without the Past
God is Love and All. All that can thus in truth exist within the eternal now is Love. The present moment, being a manifestation of Love, is truly all that exist. The past and future are but figments of the ego’s imagination, made in an effort to try to hide the present’s true treasure from you. The ego tries to hide the present from you, because when you are not in the now, which is your true home, you will feel lost, confused and alone, and will then use the ego to defend yourself against a chaotic world. We call a foreign place, the past or future home, and then wonder why we feel lost, confused and alone. To find your true essence, treasure and home, you must let go of the past and future, of the ego’s past programming and its future imaginings, and return to the now, where the Love of God forever resides. Judgment of self and others cannot actually come from within the present moment, because Love is all that truly exist within the now. To experience judgment of self or others, these programs actually have to be dragged from the past and onto the present. In such a scenario, we extend our past learned behaviors onto the present, obscure the present moment, and thus end up living a false present and future like our past. Acting in this unconscious manner, is it then any wonder why, we are confused about, and can not truly understand, what is really going on. What is really upsetting us within the present moment, is not what our sisters and brothers are saying or doing, what is really upsetting us is the frustration that we feel by trying to deal with them in the present moment, but through our past programming. This frustration that we feel by dealing with our brothers and sisters through this unloving and unconscious state of mind, is then externalized by projecting our frustrations onto them, through the ‘act’ of judgment. What we are then really frustrated with, is not their actions, but the past programs that we are using to react to their actions. We have been programmed by the ego to believe, that this way of thinking, acting and being, will relieve and release us from the frustrations that we feel, but even when our ego insists that we are absolutely right to feel and act in this manner, the ego still can not deliver to us, the peace or joy that we seek.
Have you not experienced times when you thought, with the ego backing, that you had every right to judge another? So you did, yet still this so-called “right” action did nothing to bring you the lasting peace, joy and satisfaction that the ego had promised to give you for being right. How can the ego insists that it knows what we should do, when over and over again, we do what it demands, and still we receive no peace, joy or true satisfaction, for our efforts. And so why should we continue to listen to the ego, when it brings us nothing that we in truth want? Have we all not played the ego’s game of follow the “leader” long enough? Have the blind, not lead the blind, long enough? How many more times must we fall into the ditches of judgment, anger, resentment, hate, revenge disillusionment and despair, before we realize, that there must be a better way? Is it not time to begin waking up to the fact that aligning with, and following the ego’s advice and mindset, makes no sense at all, and produces nothing that we truly desire? You belong, as God’s creation, aligned with God, with Truth, with Love. Love is your true home, and your true home can only be found and experienced within, by letting go of the ego’s calls for judgment. Today, let us make it a concerted effort to stop dragging the ego’s past judgment centered programs, into the now. The now, the present moment, God eternal gift to us, is where our peace of mind and joy reside. Today, allow peace of mind and joy to become symbols to you that you have dropped the ego’s demands for judgment. Let us also note, that judgment of self and others, frustration, anxiousness, stress, worry, anger, hate, resentment, revenge, disillusionment and despair, these are all symbols of one who is stuck, unconsciously dragging the ego’s past programs into the now.
Today, let us begin to awaken to the fact, that the ego is not taking us, to where we desire to be. We desire to be within the now, experiencing the Love that God is. Forgiveness, compassion, understanding, peace and joy, are all expressions of The Divine, of one who is in alignment with the now. Today, every time that the ego tries to drag its past judgment centered programs onto the now, let us remember that the ego has nothing of real value to offer us. Let us stop feeding its mindset with our time, focus and energy, and return to the now, where God’s loving expressions forever reside. Imagine, within the present moment, experiencing an alignment with God by simply doing this: Letting go of nothing and receiving everything in return. Nothing is a symbol of what God is not, such as judgment, frustration, anxiousness, stress, worry, anger, hate, resentment, and revenge. Replace nothing with everything, is replacing all that places itself in opposition to God, with God. How blessed would we be, if we could awaken and recall, that we can give up nothing and receive everything in return? Today, give up the past and future, and practice being only in the now. What do you truly have to lose, when all that you can lose in such an instant, is nothing? You, as God creation, as Love’s expression, and are forever worthy of all of His gifts. Today, let go of everything that tries to place itself in opposition to God, to your loving nature. Do so, let go of the ego’s numerous false concepts, consciously unite with The Divine, and by doing so become an example to others, that what they are trying to reach, is truly within reach.
Today, let us practice getting better at deciphering, when we are living aligned with the present moment, and when we are extending the ego’s past programming, like a blanket, onto the now. When we are aligned with the present moment, we look at this world through Love’s eyes, and by doing so, see a world without judgment, one where we live peacefully and joyously with all our brothers and sisters. When we are dragging the ego’s past programming onto the present moment, judgment, fear, chaos, confusion, disillusionment and despair, seem to rule over us, and in this state of uncertainty, we miss what is truly going on. Let us today recall that God is Love and All, and so when we are seeing and experiencing the moment in a way that seems to be in opposition to Love, then we are simply unconsciously allowing the ego to live our lives for us. Let us practice catching ourselves quicker and quicker when we find ourselves out of alignment with the now. It is by doing so, that we will begin to let go of our past programs, and return to being at One with God.
