When we are focusing on the seeming separateness of our bodies instead of the sameness of our souls, we are buying into the ego’s programming and mindset as real and true. We are all One. Yet the ego has programmed us to believe and support the false concept that we are separate from each other. This false concept says: “I can judge and hurt you without this punishing and hurting me”. It does this because judgment is the ego’s main fuel source. If it can make you believe that you can judge another without hurting yourself, then it wins. It wins, because as you judge yourself or another, you fuel the ego while you deplete your Self. You fuel the ego’s delusions while you deplete the truth in you. The ego and its mindset grow stronger while your true eternal loving essence and nature dissolves away. The ego knows that if you believe that judging another won’t hurt you in any way, then you’ll be more inclined to judge. What the ego tries to hide is that because we are all One, other people represent in essence parts of you, unconscious beliefs you hold about yourself. Thus when you are judging and condemning them you are in essence punishing and hurting yourself.
Here is an affirmation to help you practice forgiving your whole self: Today, let me recall that being all One each person “out there” is in essence a part of me. When I judge them, I am simply projecting onto them a part of me that does not believe is worthy of forgiveness. I have withheld forgiveness from myself long enough. So today, I offer it to all others so that I can fully experience it myself. Now, instead of judging others — and judging myself for judging them — I thank them for showing me a way out of the ego’s delusional mindset. Today, I recognize that the more parts of myself I forgive “out there”, the closer I come to understanding that it is okay and right to forgive my whole self. Now, when the ego demands that I judge other people, I stop and recognize that they are simply offering me the opportunity to forgive them, and by doing so, forgive, heal and free myself from the heavy burden of judgment.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
