Daily Inspiration: March 15. Consciously Choosing Forgiveness over Judgment
God is Love, and forgiveness is an aspect of Love, thus when we choose forgiveness over judgment, we are choosing God over the ego’s programs and mindset. Today, when the ego insists that we judge others, let us ask ourselves: “Is this judgment really worth my peace of mind and joy?” When we figure out that it is not, then let us use forgiveness as a tool, to help us return to being in alignment with the state of peace and joy, both which are also aspects of Love. If things seem to be going against us, or seem to be taken away from us, instead of judging the situation or those in it, let us understand that this is occurring so that we can recognize its lack of value in our life. The more we align with non-judgment, the more our loving nature encompasses a greater part of our experience. As forgiveness encompasses a greater part of our experience, we begin to notice how unlike, the energy of judgment of self and others, is to us. As we recall that judgment is not a part of our true essence and nature, our need to defend ourselves with it, diminishes. The ego has programmed us to believe that judgment offers us a certain level of power over the person we judge, but being all One, judgment is really an attack on ourselves. For if we believe we can, through judgment, have power over others, then seven plus billion people can have power over us, and thus the need for further defensive tactics like judgment. You can not truly achieve the states of peace and joy when you unconsciously believe that everyone “out there” is out to judge you. To achieve the states of peace and joy, you need to realize that judging others, in the end, hurts you, and that hurting yourself is not God’s will for you. God’s will for you is perfect peace of mind and joy, and since we are all One, you achieve these states, by offering all others, what you yourself desire to experience.
Today, understanding that God is Love and All, let us recall that everything that we end up experiencing, is always, in one form or another, helpful. If everything is helpful, what logical need is there for judgment? Today, everyone we meet, regardless of their actions or reactions, is helping us develop into more forgiving and non-judgmental human beings. This in turn, makes us more peaceful and joyful people. Thanks to their participation in our life, we are developing a deeper alignment with Love, and thus a greater understanding of who in truth we are. What a gift each and every person becomes, when we realize what they are offering us. They are helping us strengthen our union with God. They are helping us see, that when we unite with forgiveness, we are uniting with God. Imagine, being able to shift your mindset, from one that is unconsciously attached to the ego judgments, to one that is aligned with forgiveness and God. Which mindset do you think would bring you closer to the peace of mind and joy that you so desire and deserve? Which mindset will have you tossing and turning at night, thinking about the same scenario over and over again? Which one would aid you in comfortably placing your head down on your pillow, and going peacefully to sleep? Today, make the conscious decision, to no longer torture yourself through your own judgment centered thoughts. You, as God’s creation, are forever worthy of His peace and joy, and we are all One. Make the conscious decision to trust this truth as true, and peace of mind and joy will fill more and more of your moments, days and life. Today, invite non-judgment and forgiveness to become your constant companions, to help you become who you came here to be.
Today, let us allow forgiveness, not judgment, to become our primary goal for our interactions. Imagine, making forgiveness and non-judgment your immediate response to everyone, everything and all. Imagine, taking your power back from the ego, by making the conscious decision to disregard the ego’s demands for judgments. Imagine, that no matter how much the ego insisted that you must judge yourself or others, you simply smile at its request, and chose instead to forgive. How much more peace of mind and joy would you experience during such a day? Imagine, no longer having to carry judgment’s weight and burdens, simply by declining the ego’s demands. Today, when the ego once again tries to take over your decision-making process, and it will try, for its own existence depends on you giving away your power over to it, remember that it is you, not the ego, who should be in control of your thoughts and thinking. Recall, that God has given you free will, and so in any and every moment, you have the right to think the thoughts that will color your experience. Today, when the ego once again tries to play its little mind control games, remind yourself: “God gave me free will, the power to choose my own thoughts, and thus the world I end up experiencing. God is Love, and forgiveness and peace are both expressions of Love, just as am I. Today, I make the conscious decision to simply align with who I truly am. By aligning with my true loving essence and nature, with forgiveness, peace of mind and joy, in essence with God, He becomes my constant companion.”
Today, let us recall that who in truth we are, is the Love that God is. Forgiveness, as an aspect of Love, is who we are. Thus, when we choose forgiveness over judgment, we are choosing our true nature over the ego’s programs and mindset. When we choose forgiveness, we are choosing to represent God on Earth. When we choose judgment we are representing the ego, nothing, a illusionary concept that has tried to place itself in opposition to God who is All. Anytime we align with Love and any of its expressions we will feel fulfilled, because in essence we are doing what we were created to do. Anytime we align with the ego’s judgment centered programs we will feel unfulfilled, because in essence, we are doing nothing. Today, when ego once again demands judgment, let’s remember that God being All, that we can use all for good, and thus use such an opportunity to instead practice forgiveness, which in essence is helping us reinforce our understanding, that we are One with God.
