How much time and energy have we already sacrificed at the altar of self-judgment? What has self-judgment ever done for us in return? 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 the ego does not even know what we are having for lunch next week. If it does not know what we are having for lunch how could it know what is in our best interest, let alone in the best interest of the universe? Place instead your trust in God’s ability to lead you to your destination and you will begin to feel your self-judgments dissolve before His Light and understanding. If every step on the path that you have co-designed with God will lead you to your destination, then is not every step of the journey of use? Knowing this and being all One, would this truth not also include all others? Understanding this, would your judgments of others not also begin to fade away? Continue on a daily basis to support this truth as true and feel your self judgments and judgments of others dissolve before your light and understanding. The more you dissolve judgment from your life, the more peace you will experience. Always remember that being all One, that when you judge another, you are in essence judging yourself. When you do so you are unconsciously saying to yourself that it is ok for “others” to judge you. Peace can not be found as long as you are constantly unconsciously judging yourself through others. Yet, never despair by always recalling that what the ego uses to judge and condemn, God can and will use to help you heal and awaken. Understanding this, today align with the Mind of God, let go of your judgments, and by doing so return to the path to peace.
Second, give yourself a break. Acknowledge to yourself that you are always making the best decision possible with the tools and knowledge that you in that moment have available to you. If in every moment you are making the best decision possible with the tools, wisdom and self-awareness that you have available to you, then what need would there be for self-judgment? Let us recall that in every moment of our life experience we are at our highest level of development and self-awareness. No matter what it might look like to the ego, we are always making the best decision possible with the tools that we have at hand. The more you can trust this truth as true, the less power you will give to the ego’s false concept of self-judgment. The more that you can practice aligning with this thought process, the less power judgment of self will have over you and your life. The more you are able to look at your past, see and understand the knowledge and wisdom that you have accumulated thanks to it, the more grateful you will be to your past-self. You will be grateful because now you are aware of all your past self has gone through and overcome to help your present self become who he or she is. Now, look at your future self and imagine the appreciation he or she will feel towards your present-self, for all he or she is going through to assist your future-self in becoming a more peaceful, joyful and awaken being. When the sacred and perfect nature of your co-creation with God is recalled, every step of your journey, from your birth till your return Home, will be understood as useful and helpful. It will be when the proper credit is given to every step of your path that your judgments of self and others will dissolve before your light and understanding.
Third, the ego would insist that you made mistakes because you were not wise, spiritual, or good enough. Instead of buying such delusions as real ask yourself, how many times have these so call ‘mistakes’ become some of my greatest lessons? If these so-called mistakes, 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 a gift that you are offered yourself. It’s also, thanks to the life experience and wisdom that you have accumulated from it, a gift that you will one day offer to others. There is in reality, nothing in your sacred co-creation with God, when seen through Love’s eyes, that you need to feel embarrassed about, ashamed of, sad, regretful or depressed about. Anytime that you are not at peace with your past, this is simply a symbol of one who is not yet aware of the gifts and wisdom that they have brought you, or that they are in the process of bringing to you. Anytime that you are feeling in any way bad, sad, negative or regretful, it is not immature or wrong for you to feel this way. Feel whatever it is that you think you need to feel. Process your emotions in any way that you think you need to process them. But do recall, that you are feeling this way, not because you are not spiritual, wise, intelligent or worthy, but because you have simply misinterpreted your experience. You are not yet seeing or understanding the gifts that are being presented to you in each and every moment. God loves you unconditionally, and He knows that every step you take on your journey is a step you are taking towards Him. Trust this truth as true, let go of self-judgment, and return to your natural state, the state of non-judgment and peace.
Today, let us practice letting go of our self-judgments by placing a greater trust in God and the plan that He has co-created with us. When you begin to trust in God’s plan for your life, you get that not only is your journey perfect and sacred, but also that each and every step along your path serves a higher good. The more you practice reinforcing this truth as true, the less you will judge yourself, and the more at peace you will be. Let us recall that being all One, if you judge what appears to be another being, you are in essence judging yourself. Your self-judgments will then grow or diminish, depending on how you treat and interact with your brothers and sisters. Lastly, let us recall that we have always done the best we could with the coping mechanisms, tools and knowledge, we had at that moment in time. When you recall this, compassion not condemnation will be the appropriate response to yourself and others.
