Daily Inspiration: May 11. Our Journey to the Present Moment
The journey we will be making today, is not so much an external one, as it is an internal one. It is a journey to a place we may have temporally forgotten, but have truly never left. The ever-present moment, the state of peace, a place freed from past judgments or future imaginings, is our destination. Free will, is one of the main navigation tools, that we have been gifted to help us reach our destination. Choose to focus on feelings of judgment or anger and it will feel like we are heading against the wind, in the wrong direction, one that is not conducive to, or in alignment with, our true journey. Choose to focus on aligning with and sharing God’s Love, on having compassion for our fellow beings, and allowing our decisions to be guided by peace, and we will feel a sense of fulfillment, a sense of feeling like we are headed in the right direction with the wind at our backs. One focus will weigh us down, blow us off-center, and have us forget our destination; the other will lift us up and help us remember and reach our destination. The present moment is God’s eternal gift to us. It is within the present moment where the Love of God forever resides. Today, allow the state of peace to energetically show you when you’re in, or out of alignment with, the present moment. When you align your decisions with the state of peace, when your decisions bring you peace, then know that you are aligning with the present moment, and thus you are where you truly belong. When your decisions do not bring you peace, then know that you are not in alignment with the present moment. For the present moment is a reflection of God’s Love, and peace is one of the main yet numerous expressions of God’s Love. God’s Love is who you are, and thus you belong aligned with the present moment, in the state of peace, being and sharing all of Love’s expressions. Today, if you do not find yourself in the state of peace, do not despair, simply realize that you have chosen incorrectly, and then gently and without judgment, choose once again.
The closer we come to aligning with the present moment, the more we will notice judgment being replaced by forgiveness, worry being replaced by a greater trust in God, and an anxious mind being replaced by a peaceful mind. Within the eternal present moment, all that in truth exist is God’s Love. God’s Love has numerous expressions such as forgiveness, trust, compassion, joy and peace, the more you are experiencing and consciously aligning with these energetic expressions, the more you will be remembering who in truth you are. Today, if you find yourself out of alignment with the present moment, do not despair, for God’s Love being All, has in truth no opposite, thus in that sense it is impossible for you not to go in the right direction, it is impossible for you not to be who in truth you are. If God is All, then there is nowhere that the present moment is not, and there is no time where the choice to align with the present moment is not available to you. Yet, within the ego’s illusionary dualistic world, there appears to be opposition to All, and so judgment, anger, worry and anxiety, will on many occasions, appear to be real. Today, let us not judge ourselves for once again falling down the ego’s dark rabbit hole and buying into the false as true, instead let us use these behaviors as trigger mechanisms, that help wake us to the understanding that we are not where we need or want to be. The more we practice using the ego’s mindset and tools to lead us out of it, the less time we will spend playing its silly little judgment games. Energetic and emotional expressions like judgment of self and others, will not align us with the present moment, but they can start to help us see, that when we choose them, we end up somewhere where we desire not to be. The more we understand where we desire not to be, the clearer the path to our true destination becomes.
Today, with our mindset to return to the present moment, we forgive the past and release the future. Both the past and future are for the ego to speculate on, not us. The past is gone, it can no longer affect you unless you allow it to. The future is but in your imagination, it also does not in truth exist. All that exist, is this moment, right now, and it is in the present moment where our destiny is shaped. All we need to focus on today is returning to the present moment, our true everlasting loving home. Today, we are in truth giving away nothing, the past and the future, and in return receiving everything, the present, God’s eternal gift. We have travel far, but truly no distance, we have travel from a state of forgetfulness, through the ego’s illusionary fairy tale, to the present moment and that of remembering our true nature. Today, let us use the ego’s illusions, our focus on the past or future, not to trap us there, but to help set us free to return to the present moment. Today, allow judgment of self and others, anger, worry and anxiousness, not to walk you down into further darkness, but to act as a gentle light, a reminder that you are heading somewhere you do not desire to be. Then offer your illusionary mindset gratitude for that gentle reminder, and once again make the conscious effort to align your thoughts with the state of peace. The more we make the conscious choice to stop and turn away from the darkness, the closer to, and more time we will spend focusing on and aligning with the Light. The Light, Love, peace, the present moment, all are symbols of God. The more we align with the Light, the more we will feel that it is indeed in and with the Light, within the eternal present moment, where we forever belong.
Today, let us practice recognizing the symbolic representations of when we are in alignment, or out of alignment, with the present moment. Feeling peaceful, joyful, forgiving, loving and kind, are all symbols of one who is in alignment with the present moment. Feeling judgmental, anger, sadness, stressed out, anxious, revengeful and hateful, are all symbols of one who is out of alignment with the present moment. Let there no longer be a need for us to judge ourselves or those who have simply forgotten their true nature, and are thus currently out of alignment with the present moment, instead, let us simply use such symbols as trigger mechanisms, that are asking us to change directions, and correct our path. Correcting our path is also but a symbol of one who goes from a state of forgetfulness to one of remembering who in truth they are. Those who remember will not judge their forgetfulness, they will instead thank their forgetfulness for helping them practice remembering better.
