For some, this may be a tall order; for others, it may not be a struggle. Yet, many of us will fall somewhere in between. As you take this day to notice your thoughts and retrain your mind, realize that by judging nothing that occurs today, you have surrendered the day to God. You are ushering in peace and freeing yourself from the ego mind.
Today I will judge nothing that occurs.
I will be honest with myself today. I will not think that I already know what must remain beyond my present grasp. I will not think I understand the whole from bits of my perception, which are all that I can see. Today I recognize that this is so. And so I am relieved of judgments that I cannot make. Thus do I free myself and what I look upon, to be in peace as God created us.
Father, today I leave creation free to be itself. I honor all its parts, in which I am included. We are one because each part contains Your memory, and truth must shine in all of us as one.
Quote of the Day
"The Holy Spirit accepts people unconditionally. To the ego, this is an outrageous thought, because unconditional love is the death of the ego."
