Daily Inspiration: March 12. Stepping Off the Ego’s Stage
We do a lot more ‘acting’ during our day than we realize. In fact, every time we react with anger, judgment, stress, envy, jealousy, resentment or hate, we are acting. It is tiring trying to be who we are not. All that we are not, yet who we have been programmed by the ego that we are, is such a giant learning feat, that once we begin to recognize what we have taught ourselves, we will never again question our power to learn any part we choose to play. We have put on masks, have lost ourselves in an actor’s part within the ego’s play, and thus have forgotten who we truly are. We have for so long played the ego’s fantasy role of us as true, that we now don’t even question or even recall that it is a fantasy, written by a playwright that does not even in truth exist. These are who the ego’s fairy tale can control, those who have lost their way, those who have forgotten who in truth they are. The more we act a certain way, the more real this way becomes, and the more we defend this false way as real. Just as an actor becomes more comfortable the more he rehearses his part, so to will we become more comfortable with the behaviors, actions and reactions, that we support as a real part of us. We have practiced the part we create endlessly until we made “truths” out of illusions. Do not underestimate what you and your ego have co-created. Anytime that you are not at peace, joyous, compassionate, forgiving and loving, it is because you are buying into the part that the ego has designed for you. The world you see is the world that you, through your learning, acting and reinforcement, have made. It is the world as you have taught yourself that it is. How difficult is a world where anger, judgment, stress, envy, jealousy, resentment or hate, are supported as real parts of your character? How much longer must you act in the ego’s destructive and self-destructive play, before you finally realize that you are tired of acting as someone you are not, and choose to play that part no more?
Always remember, that free will, is your way out of any part you are currently playing, that you no longer desire to play. Free will was gifted to you in your creation, a gift that was given to you way before you put on the ego’s mask and started acting. You never, thanks to free will, need to continue playing a part that is only hurting you and those around you. If you are not offering others peace, joy, kindness, forgiveness and love, not only to yourself but also to all others, then know that you are, in one form or another, acting. You are your Creator’s loving creation, and therefore anytime you are not radiating and expressing this love, in the numerous ways Love manifest itself, then you are acting as who the ego has trained you to be. No longer put yourself or others down when you are being anything other than loving, instead simply and gently recognize what is truly happening beneath all of the illusionary manifestations of the ego’s programming. What is truly happening is that you have fallen into the ego’s trap, that you have bought into the part that the ego has programmed you to play. Then recognize how out of alignment that acting part is with who in truth you are. Remember who you in truth are, God’s loving creation, and God being All, you are therefore in truth love and only love. If the part you are playing is not in total alignment with the loving truth within you, then it is you, who through free will, who must make the conscious choice to leave the ego’s stage. You leave the ego’s stage, not through your death, but through the death of your character. Leave, let go of all that is not truly supportive and in alignment with your eternal loving nature. Do so, and your unconscious need to continue to play the ego’s role, will end.
Today, take your final bow and step of the ego’s stage; you have played that part long enough. Support the actor in you no longer. This actor is your ego, your false-self, a lie you have been taught to believe as true. Choose no longer to support your false-self as real, for only the false in you needs to support its existence through the ego’s fear based mindset. The truth in you does not need to be supported to grow and expand, all it needs to do is be, be who it is, who it was created to be. Truth is already All, and what is true in you has always been true, is true now, and will always be true. The truth in you is simply awaiting you to make the conscious choice to align with it. Your truth will lovingly wait for however long you choose to act in the ego’s play. Today, let us make the conscious choice to act no longer, let us finally put down our masks, expose and become, the loving light filled beings we were created to be. This is our true gift to this world; to become the physical examples, expressions and representatives of our Creator. We are here to light the way for all those who also desire to put down the ego’s mask, and find, align with and become, their truest, most loving, light-filled selves. Be patient, kind and understanding, with yourself and others, knowing the your final bow is near. Each day make the conscious choice to align with your patience, kindness and understanding, for as you do, peace, love and joy, will begin to radiate from you, creating a beautiful circle of compassion. Your circle of compassion will then grow until it begins to encompass all you see and meet. As your circle of compassion grows to include all, you will begin to recall, that this is how in truth it has always been, that we have forever been One with each other and our Creator, that neither God nor anyone else has ever left our side.
Today, let us practice recognizing when we are on the ego’s stage. Anytime we are being judgmental, angry, worried, stressed, envious, jealous, resentful or hateful, we are acting, playing the ego’s part. Anytime that we are not offering the truth within us, our peaceful, joyous, compassionate, forgiving and loving nature, let us simply recognize that we are on the ego’s stage. Why continue to play a part that we know we no longer want? Why continue to work for the ego, who only brings us suffering and pain? God has gifted us free will, we can step off the ego’s stage anytime that we so choose to. All we need do is to recognize that we are somewhere we do not belong. This is what our interactions with our brothers and sisters are offering us, the opportunity to see and feel when we are playing someone who is not us. Today, let us take off our masks, and offer our brothers and sisters gratitude for offering us the opportunities to leave the ego’s stage by recalling our true loving nature. Then let us offer who in truth we are to them, so that they too may begin recalling, who in truth they are.
