Daily Inspiration: July 31. Living Fully Within the Present Moment
Living fully in the now, is living in alignment with God, with Love. You will know when you’re in alignment with the now, because you will be using and experiencing Love’s expressions. Love’s expressions are many such as those of acceptance, compassion, kindness, forgiveness and understanding. These energies are all in alignment with your true nature. When in alignment with your true nature you will feel balanced, safe, fulfilled, joyful and at peace. When you are feeling balanced, safe, fulfilled, joyful and at peace, you are in essence allowing God to flow through you. The choice, in every moment, to be or not to be aligned with your true nature, is yours to make. Every single moment allows you this opportunity, to choose your true nature over the ego’s program, and thus peace over pain. Whenever you find yourself lost in the ego’s programs, experiencing judgment, anger, resentment and hate, do not despair, simply recall that thanks to free will, you can always choose once again. This other choice, that of choosing God over the ego, aligns you with your true nature and thus with the state of peace. Today, allow the state of peace to become a symbol to you, that you are aligned with the now. But also allow, the sense of a lack of peace, to become a symbol to you, that you are out of alignment with the now. There is no need to judge yourself for being out of alignment with the present moment, simply realize that you are not where you want to be, and then choose once again. You are the son or daughter of the Father of Peace, and so do not ever allow the ego to convince you that you are not worthy of peace, of your Father’s inheritance. Peace as an extension of Love is one of your many natural states of being, and your natural states of being are always but a choice away.
Within this world of duality, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to decide if you desire to experience and live in alignment with the now, or with the ego’s past programs. The one that you value most in any situation, is the one that you consciously or unconsciously believe you are worthy of, and so it is the one that you will end up choosing and experiencing. For example, reacting with anger towards another, is an energetic and emotional expression and symbol, that you have chosen the ego’s past programs over the present moment. Because we are all One, it is not possible for you to experience peace in a situation, if peace is not what you offer others. If you desire more peace in your life, simply offer others what you desire to experience. Peace is found within the present moment, because Love is the true reflection of the present moment, and peace is just one of Love’s many expressions. In order to have peace, all you need do, is let go of your past programs that say that others are unworthy of peace. Anger is not a proper response to God’s creations. Anger is not an expression of Love. Only Love’s expressions are proper responses to God’s creations, and only they will bring you peace. Let us remind ourselves throughout the day: “Today, I offer peace to all others, so that I may experience it myself. Today, I offer peace to all others, because I am my Father’s creation, and worthy of peace.” No matter how the ego has programmed you to respond, always remember that you are worthy of peace, and so offer peace to have it. The more you practice offering peace to others, the more worthy of peace you will feel. The more worthy of peace you feel, the more you will experience it.
Today, let us remember, that the opportunity to live more fully in the now, is always but a choice away. Today, whenever the ego once again tries to convince us that its way is The Way, let us recall where the ego’s judgment, anger, resentment and hate, have in the past, taken us, nowhere that we desire to be. Then, let us recall, that as our Father’s creation, that we are worthy of experiencing all of Love’s expressions such as those of acceptance, understanding, kindness, forgiveness, and compassion. Today, let us return to the present moment, the state of peace, by remembering and witnessing to our brother’s and sister’s innocence. Our brothers and sisters are God’s prefect creation, and as such, in truth, can only be love. If we see and react to them as something or someone other than love, then that misperceptions falls on us, not them. If we condemn them, we condemn ourselves to a lack of peace. If we condemn them, we are using the ego’s past programs and are therefore not aligned with the now, with the Love that God is. Let us simply recognize, that when we judge them, it is only the sleeping part in us that is doing so. Let us today awaken those sleeping parts of us by noting that any expression other than a loving one, is not a real aspect or representation of who we are or were created to be. Let us today awaken, and through our example, remind our brothers and sisters of who they truly are. It may at first appear hard to overlook the sleeping parts in others, but the more that we practice doing so, the clearer it will become to us, who in truth they are, and thus the easier it will be for us, to let go of our judgments and return to living in the now, aligned with the Mind of God.
Today, let us practice getting better at more quickly recognizing the symbols that show us when we are living fully in the now, and when we are not. Using any of Love’s expressions, are symbols that we are experiencing the present moment as it was meant for us to experience it. Any expression that seems to be in opposition to Love’s expressions, are all symbols that we are out of alignment with the now. Peace of mind and joy are both expressions of Love, and thus symbols that we are experiencing the now. If we are lacking peace and joy in any moment, it is not because we are not worthy of them, it is simply that we are valuing the ego’s past programs over the now. When you find yourself out of alignment with the now, there is no need to make a big deal of it, simply forgive yourself and your misperceptions, and offer others the expression of love that you would like to experience.
