How much time and energy have we already sacrificed at the altar of self-judgment? What prayers has self-judgment ever answered? What wounds has it ever healed? Today, let us recall the irrationality of self-judgment by noting three things:
First, the ego thinks that it has the knowledge to judge us and our journey, and yet it does not even know what we are having for lunch tomorrow. If it does not know what we are having for lunch, can it really tell us what is in our own best interest, let alone that of the universe? Trust instead that having co-created your journey with God, that every step along your path is perfect for your growth, healing and awakening. Every time you choose to trust in God’s plan over the ego’s need for self-judgment, you will increase your levels of peace and joy.
Second, know that you are always making the best decision possible with the tools, coping mechanism and self-awareness, that you have available to you at that time. Knowing this as true, what room is there left for self-judgment?
Third, the ego would insist that you made mistakes because you were not wise, spiritual or good enough. Instead remind yourself, how many times have these so call ‘mistakes’ become some of my greatest lessons? If these so-called errors in judgment, by us learning from them, turned into knowledge and wisdom, then were they ever truly mistakes or bad in the first place? Anything that helped you grow, develop, mature and become more self-aware is useful, and thus is a gift that you offered yourself. It is the gift of your life experience, that one day will become a gift to others.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
