In order to decrease our judgments of self and others, and begin to create the more peaceful world we would like to see and experience, let’s consider the following six steps: First, let us remember that the creation of a less judgmental and more peaceful world, always begin in one place, within our minds. It is through the thoughts we think, that we will interact with, see and participate in, this world. Peace being an expression of Love, is who God is, thus when we trust and align with God’s plan, peace results. Remind yourself when judgement-centered thoughts try to enter your mind, that God being Love, uses all our choices for good. When you recall that everything you experience has a higher purpose, what need would you have to judge, what is in essence, God’s plan? God’s plan is your highest-will’s plan for your life, trust this and be at peace. Trust that this is true for all, and be at peace. Ask yourself: “If God uses all our choices for good, then was the experience that I was judging myself or others for, really bad and worthy of my judgments in the first place?” When you align with His knowledge, you understand the blessing that each moment and person in your life, truly is. Second, keep asking yourself throughout the day: “How am I feeling?” When you’re trusting God, forgiving your misperceptions of self and others, you will feel at peace and in alignment with your All-Loving Source. Because Love is your Creator, peace is your true nature and Home. This is where you belong, in the state of peace. If you are not at peace, don’t judge yourself or others as not good or spiritual enough, simply recognize it as a signal, that shows you, that you are somewhere within your heart and mind, that you do not belong.
Third, make it a point to practice catching yourself quicker and quicker each time you find yourself, not in alignment with the state of peace. When you’re in the state of peace, you will see and interact with this world, through thoughts filled with compassion, forgiveness, trust and understanding. When you’re in a judgmental state of mind, you will see and interact with this world, through thoughts filled with fear, anger, anxiousness and hate. Again, do not judge yourself for this, instead use the judgmental state of mind, to trigger in you, the desire to consciously realign with your true nature, the state of peace. Now, with a greater trust in God’s plan, see every opportunity that you get to practice catching yourself being out of alignment with peace, as a gift that is, in its own way, helping you return back Home. The more you practice catching yourself when out of alignment with the state of peace, the less time you’ll spend lacking peace, and more time you will spend being an example of the state of peace. Fourth, after you have caught yourself being out of alignment with peace, practice using forgiveness, to return you to peace. Just as the judgmental mindset led you to feeling out of alignment with the state of peace, so to will forgiveness begin to realign you, with the state of peace. When you catch yourself being out of alignment, judgmental, sarcastic or critical, stop that thought process, remind yourself of the sacred nature of the journey that we have all co-created with God, and correct your mindset by forgiving your misperceptions of self and others. When in judgment, remind yourself, that every single step on your journey is, has been, and will be, of use, in helping you reach your destination, your true Home, the state of peace.
Fifth, make it a point to practice forgiving others. See every single time the ego tries to have you focus on being judgmental, sarcastic or critical as an opportunity that the Universe is offering you to forgive others. Feel the feeling of forgiveness flowing through you, healing you, lifting you up and awakening you to the realization that we are all truly One. In the end, what your brothers or sisters’ actions provide are a better understanding that we are all One, helping you see that as you forgive them, you free yourself from the burdens of judgement. Today, do not just look at them with forgiveness and send a forgiving thought. Instead, wholeheartedly feel your forgiveness, feel the beauty, compassion, kindness, generosity, wisdom and understanding that forgiving thoughts hold. Then, when you think of them, offer this feeling to them, so that you may feel this feeling flowing through you and throughout your day. You will then begin to notice, that as you forgive them, you will be healing and nourishing yourself. Sixth, become your own cheerleader. Every time you catch and stop yourself from sinking into a response that is judgmental, sarcastic or critical, and you instead offer forgiveness, compassion and peace, give yourself a pat on the back. The ego would insist that what you are doing is no big deal. But in truth, what you are doing is helping change and lift, through your example, the consciousness of those in this world. This world is simply made up of the thoughts we think. When you make the conscious decision to be a creator of forgiving and peaceful thoughts, you not only change and lift yourself, but through your example, you also help shift and lift those around you. We are all One, we all desire, unconscious of it as some may be, the same things, to be aligned with and share our loving nature. Forgiveness and peace are simply roads that lead us to our goal.
Today, when the ego’s judgmental mindset seems to have a hold on you, recall the following: 1 – That God uses all for good. God is Love and you have co-created your journey with Him. That He will use all your choices and experiences to assist you in your growth, healing and awakening. 2 – Keep asking yourself throughout the day: “How am I feeling?” You belong in the state of peace. If you are not at peace, then let this be a signal to you, that you are somewhere you don’t belong. 3 – Practice catching yourself quicker and quicker each time you are not at peace. The more you practice, the less time you’ll spend out of alignment, and more time you will spend in the state of peace. 4 – Practice forgiving yourself. Forgiveness being an expression of Love, aligns you with the state of peace. Forgiveness reminds you that your journey is a sacred co-creation with God, and thus perfect. 5 – Practice forgiving others. Your brothers or sisters actions are really just helping you practice Oneness, helping you recall how every part of you, is worthy of peace. As you are forgiving them, you will be healing, nourishing and awakening yourself. 6 – Become your own cheerleader. The ego would insist that what you are doing is no big deal, but in truth, this world is simply made up of the thoughts we think. When you become a creator of forgiving and loving thoughts, you help guide those around you, to a less judgmental and more peaceful world.
