Daily Inspiration: April 26. The Illusion of Judgment
The ego has no control over you, other than the control that you give to it. When you feel other people judging you, say to yourself what a great man once said: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Then simply let go of their judgments of you, and of your judgments of them for judging you. For what could judgment possibly be, when God is Love and All? There can be no opposition to All, to Love, and thus there can be no such thing as judgment. If there is no such thing as judgment, then what need would you ever have for it, or to defend yourself against it? Judgment of self and others is simply a symbol, a warning sign that you are believing in the ego’s fairy tale as real. Do not judge yourself for thinking that the dream of judgment was real while you were in the dream, for we have all been there and done that. Instead, learn to use judgment as a trigger mechanism, that helps remind you that you are sleeping, absorb within the ego’s dream, but also that it is now time to awaken. If you can learn to use judgment in this manner, would it then not become an ally in your awakening and healing process? Yes, indeed God can help you learn how to use all for good. God is All, thus everything, even judgment can, when understood and used from an awaken state of mind, be used for good, in our growth, healing and awakening process. Once we learn how to use judgment, which is simply an expression of fear, for good, then we can also learn how to use all of fear’s expressions, for this same purpose. Imagine, being able to use fear’s expressions, such as those of anger, anxiousness, resentment and hate, for good, to help us awaken from the ego’s dream. How much easier, comfortable, peaceful and joyful, would such a life be?
When a brother or sister judges you, know that it’s not the truth in them, that is doing so. The part of them that judges you, is that child part of them that believes the fairy tale that was read and taught to them as true – is true. Would you judge a child for believing, because he or she was taught that a fairy tale was true, that the fairy tale is true? Would you judge a child if he shapes his hand like a gun and shoots at you? Would you judge a child for being afraid of the monsters in his dreams? Only the sleeping part in you would be bothered by and judge such actions and reactions. My friend, you will never be judged by anyone’s truth, because judgment does not exist in truth. Judgment, regardless of how many times the ego’s fairytale has told us otherwise, does not exist within God who is Love and All. If judgment does not exist in God, then it does not exist at all. Today, practice reinforcing this truth in you. When another person judges you, do not spend any of your time, focus or energy, on that judgment. Do not defend yourself against that judgment, for doing so, is to give it a power it does not have. Instead, overlook or forgive it, and then let it go. When you don’t spend your time, focus and energy, on an illusion, in this case someone judging you, then that illusion has no fuel to glow or grow. Today, every time that judgment pops up in your head, overlook or forgive it, realizing that being illusionary in nature, it can only seem real, if you make it so. If you need help in forgiving the illusion and letting your judgment go, feel and visualize yourself handing it over to God, and it dissolving in His Light, Mercy and Love. Then pray for that person who you judged and judged you, pray for their well-being, peace of mind and joy, and if you can’t pray for them, then ask God to pray for them.
Today, no matter how diligently we look to keep judgment out of our lives, because it is still the ego’s main fuel source, it will surely once again knock on your mind’s door. But this time, let us stop for a moment, look through the peephole, and see that what the ego is trying to once again sell us, we now, no longer need nor want. Now, you know that when others judge you, it is never their true-self doing so. It is simply that sleeping part in them, that believes that what is happening in the dream, is real. Now, you know that because you are awake, you no longer need to invest your time, focus or energy, in a dream. Today, allow your forgiveness, kindness, peace of mind, joy and understanding, to all be symbols that show you, that you have indeed awaken from the ego’s dream. Today, do not judge yourself if you end up taking a nap, and judging yourself or others. Instead, use your judgments as signals, that help trigger in you, the desire to awaken. When you use your judgments of self or others as signals to help you awaken, they can, when properly perceived, be seen and understood as the gifts that they are. Being that judgments are in truth not real, let us make a conscious decision, that today we will not get caught up in our judgments of self and others, or in others judgments of us. Let us refuse to play any longer in the ego’s silly little games. We are awakening, and thus we are beginning to forgive or overlook what is not real. Today, let us become an example to others, that what is not real, what is illusionary in nature, can not hurt them. Let us also, through our example show them, that only their real self, the love in them, is true. In doing so we will also realize, that because we are all One, only the love in each other, is forever real and true.
Today, let us recall, that because God is Love and All, judgment placing itself in opposition to All, can not be real or true. This makes judgment illusionary in nature. It is we who have ultimate say and control over how big or small our illusions become. Today, when a judgment of self or other pops into our mind, demanding to be recognized and fed, we simply decline its request by overlooking or forgiving it. If we feel that right now we can’t do that, then let us simply hand it over to God, and visualize and feel it dissolving in His mercy and light. We then offer our prayers to those who have judged us, or to those that we have judged. Again, if you can yet do that, then ask God to do this for you, until you can feel the wisdom of His efforts. Let us pray for those we once judged, for their healing, health, happiness, peace of mind and awakening. By doing so, we align with our eternal loving essence and nature, and there, all judgments dissolve before our light and understanding.
