Daily Inspiration: October 22. Nothing and No One Else But Our Interpretations Can Upset Us
It is not our brother’s or sister’s words or actions that upset us; it is our perceptions and interpretations of their words or actions that upset us. We are not actually ever upset with them, we are actually upset at the way we have perceived and interpreted them. And so what we are really upset about is, how we are treating, and thinking about them, God’s creations. Being that we are all One, how we are thinking about and treating others, is in actuality how we are unconsciously thinking about and treating ourselves. We cannot unconsciously be mistreating ourselves, and still experience the peace of mind and joy of God. This is not because God is taking peace of mind and joy away from us as a form of punishment; it is simply because we are unconsciously withholding peace of mind and joy from ourselves. What our brothers and sisters are truly doing is helping us learn how to truly love ourselves, and thus get to experience the peace of mind and joy that as God’s creations, we are forever worthy of.
All perceptions and interpretations of our brothers and sisters are within our own minds, and not in the outside world. Thus, it’s within our own minds where our healing must take place. These perceptions and interpretations are strengthened or weaken by how much time, focus, and energy we place on them. The more we focus on and give value to an idea, the greater part of our day and life it becomes. If we desire to lessen the idea’s grip on us, then we must lessen our focus and support of it. The idea can, through our choice to focus on it, hold us captive, or through our choice to forgive and release it, set us free. In the end, no one else can hurt us, no one else can hold us captive, and no one else but us, but our own thoughts, can set us free. Your freedom does not depend on someone or something “out there.” Your freedom begins and ends within your own mind. We are all One, heal and free your mind from your own misperceptions and interpretations, and you will be reflecting this healing out into the world, and so all of the world will then be healed and free. It is you, who by the grace of God, is the savior of the world you see, the world that through your own thoughts, you have created.
Today let us stop blaming our brothers, sisters, or the outer world for how we feel. When we make the conscious choice to stop blaming our brothers, sisters, or the outer world for how we feel, we stop giving our power away to them. It is always we, who through our thoughts, hold the power over the world we see. Today let us all start taking greater personal responsibility for how we experience and interpret the world we see. By doing so, we once again recall and reinforce, that the choice to be upset or to be joyful and at peace is, in the end, ours and ours alone. True everlasting freedom from this world, today is but a choice away. All you need do is place aside the illusionary veil that stands between you and your true God-given power. You have free will; it must always be your choice to take your power back from the ego’s illusionary mindset. Remember today, that any and every time you are upset at yourself or another, it is not for the reason that you have been programmed by the ego to think. It is simply because you have placed your focus on the ego’s veil instead of your true loving nature. Today make the conscious choice to place aside the veil that stands between you and your freedom, between you and your peace of mind and joy, between you and your Creator, between who you have been programmed to be, and who you were created to be.
Today when another seems to upset you, recall, it is not them but your interpretations of them, that is upsetting you. Remember, they can in truth only be God’s creations, free yourself and them through forgiveness, and experience the peace of mind and joy of God.
