For your consideration….

….the tool of the ego.

It is hard to control our judgment. Sometimes we are better at it than others. It is right and necessary that our messages sometimes remind us to be on the watch on it. Judgment….good and bad….is always from the ego. Thoughts, words and actions from our soul are simply the truth.

Our ego uses judgment as a dimmer switch making HOPE less HOPEful. It dims our faith.

Our ego uses judgment as a limiting switch leading us to believe that our power is limited when the fact is our power is limitless. Even worse makes us believe that love is limited both in giving and receiving.

Our ego uses judgment as a dampener. It would have us believe that our successes are less than the triumphant they truly are or perhaps they are a fluke or due to someone/something else.

Our ego uses judgment as a separator. It keeps us isolated from our brothers and sisters.

Our ego uses judgment to dilute the colors of Mother Earth causing us to not notice the beauty laid before us.

We could go on and on. We have had many messages about both “judgment” and “ego.” Today’s message is a gentle reminder to be ever alert to the ego’s tool, judgment.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take…..

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths of fresh air.

-Overrule judgment.

What made me smile yesterday….

-Great little 3rd graders.

-A wonderful presenter gave them Michigan history and history on the Erie Canal in a fun interactive way. They loved it. I loved it.

-Mac’s basketball game and dinner after with family and friends….lots of laughs and fun. It was a great way to end the work week.

-Shannon and James made it back home safely. I could hear how good it felt to be home in Alex’s voice.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
