For me, the affirmation to repeat, “This idea will help to release me from all that I now believe” stands as a brilliant, flashing marquee today.
Release me…from what I now believe. Where I have focused on the past, I can now experience liberation and incredible freedom. My thoughts are what has kept me embroiled in pain, even if I don’t even believe I am in pain. If I am not at peace, then I am in “pain.”
I hadn’t slept very well as I tossed and turned not feeling well within and without. I was up extra early and meditated. I stayed with this practice as I was aware of the judgment of my mind, the emotions that had arisen, and the seeming illness of my body.
I judge my feelings as good or bad, but they are all meaningless. Yet, I do not have to allow that idea to frighten me. I can know that I am taking steps to my freedom and the recognition of the Truth.
