Daily Inspiration: March 5. Ending our Worship of False Idols
We have for so long been subjected to the ego’s programing, that certain illusions within its mindset, now seem normal, natural, proper and right. We have made false idols out of the ego’s concepts, and have for so long been programmed to support them as real, that we now think they are us. There is who we have been programmed to believe we are, and who we in truth are. Any time we are expressing ourselves through the ‘acts’ of the ego’s mindset, such as those of judgment of self and others, frustration, anger, resentment, anxiousness, worry, hate and revenge, we are supporting false aspects of our personality as real. If we believe these false aspects are real, then we will come to their defense. If we know them to be false, then there is no use to defend ourselves with them. The more we support, with our time, focus, and energy, our false-self as real, the more we think our false-self is who we really are. Yet, no matter how much or often we support our false-self as real, our false-self will never take the place of our real-self. Our false-self may for a time obscure our light, the recognition of who in truth we are, but because they are illusionary in nature, they will never be able to truly turn off, disguise, or take the place of our light. Love is our light, is who in truth we are. Love is God Who is All, and thus only the light and love in us is truly real. Everything other than our love and light is a false concept, a false idol, that we have been programmed by the ego to see as more real than our eternal loving nature. When you seem not to be able to align with your truth, with your love and light, it is not because you can’t do it, nor because you are not worthy of it. It is simply because you have been programmed to see something else, as more real and valuable than, our true loving nature. Today, let us not despair, let us instead simply correct the misperceptions that we hold about ourselves, and begin to see and feel, how truly worthy we are of being One with Love and The Light, with God.
No matter how deep we have travel into the ego’s cavern, there is darkness and there is light. Move towards the darkness, and that is what you will experience, move towards the light and that is also what you will experience. The choice of which to experience, is in the end, yours and yours alone. Frustration, anger, resentment, anxiousness, worry, hate and revenge, are all energetic representations, expressions and symbols, of the darkness, of being lost in the ego’s cavern, of worshipping false idols as real. Love and its many expressions such as joy, compassion, forgiveness, peace and understanding, are all energetic representations, expressions and symbols, of finding your way out of the ego’s cavern and back into alignment with the light. The simplest physical representation, expression and symbol, of the darkness or the light, is if you are not, or are, experiencing the state of peace. If you’re in the darkness, worshipping false idols, you will never truly be at peace. If you’re in the light, being an example of your eternal loving essence, you will have peace. Today, all you need do, to more closely align with the light, is to ask yourself questions such as: “What would bring me peace in this situation?” “Which way of interacting with my brother or sister would bring me the most peace right now?” “How can I align this moment in time, with the state of peace?” “How can I become an example of peace to my brothers and sisters?” Make peace your goal, in more and more interactions and situations during your day, and peace being an expression of Love, will more consciously and consistently unite you with your Creator. By doing so, you will begin to free yourself, from beliefs, in your false idols.
Today, let us remember, that we do not belong in the darkness. Let us recall that frustration, anger, resentment, anxiousness, worry, hate and revenge, no matter how natural, normal, proper and right, they may sometimes appear to be, that they are not us. They are simply false idols that will never bring us the true everlasting peace of mind, joy and understanding, that we desire. Today, let us stop sacrificing our time, focus, and energy, to the ego’s false idols. As we make the conscious commitment to reduce their presence in our life, they will begin to dissolve and disappear from our experience. Let us begin to truly open our eyes, realize and see, how many of these false idols we have been supporting as real, and not because they align with who we are, but because we have been programmed to look at them as real aspects of ourselves. Let us no longer hold unto them because they seem to give us some warped sense of righteousness, false power, and control. How much longer must we remain within the ego’s darken cavern to truly get that we do not belong there? How many more people must we sacrifice to these false idols, before we understand that these false idols bring us nothing but suffering and pain? How much more suffering and pain must we endure before we make the conscious decision to look towards the light? Have we not already sacrificed enough to these false gods? Today, let us say: “Enough is enough, I have already sacrificed enough of my time, focus, energy and life force, to these false idols that have brought me nothing I want. Today, I end my support for these false idols, that have never supported me. I understand that they will continue to knock on my mind’s door, but today, I will not answer their call. Today, they do not have my permission to enter my mind, for now I know that everything they have to offer, is something that I no longer need or want.”
Today, when any of the ego’s face idols come knocking on our mind’s door, let us make the conscious decision, to no longer entertain them as real aspects of ourselves. The less we place our time, focus and energy on them, the less power they will have over us. The less power they hold over us, the clearer understanding we will have of who we truly are, of our loving nature. The greater understanding we have of our loving nature, the better example we can set for those brothers and sisters who are still worshipping their false-selves as real. This is what our mission is today, to remain at peace even within the ego’s storm. We are here to, through our example, become a beacon of light for those who are currently engulfed by the ego’s fog. Let us today, stand steady, strong and provide a real shelter for those who are now desiring greater self-awareness, peace of mind, joy and understanding.
