Daily Inspiration: February 12. Ending the Practice of Self-Judgment
Today, let us not judge ourselves for feeling how we are feeling. Let us instead, just flow with our feelings, acknowledging that there are seeming ‘highs’ and ‘lows’ in everyone’s journey. Today, instead of judging our lows and judging ourselves as weak for having them, let us thank our lows, and become grateful for them. Grateful that we now can practice having the patience and wisdom we need, to allow ourselves to feel, whatever it is we think we need to feel, without self-judgment. Why does the ego’s world tell us to judge ourselves as guilty, or not good or strong enough, when we have these so-called lows? And why do we listen to the ego, when its advice only hurts us? But do not despair, for as we walk along our journey’s path, we will start to remember that this path, and every step along it, has been created and shaped by God to help us grow, heal and awaken. If every step along our path is a creation of God, then is not every step along the way, not perfectly designed for us? How could the Father of Perfection, Perfection Himself, create anything other than perfectly? When we start to align with this understanding, how could in truth we ever have any real “low points” along our path? If in truth there are no such things as low points, then any time we think we are experiencing them, must be a point when we are out of alignment with, or not recognizing, our Creator’s Will for us. And so in essence, you in truth are never presented with low points on your path, it is just that these feelings of low points, are experienced when you have unconsciously disconnected from God’s Will, from His love, mercy and grace. But again, do not despair, for if it is you who has, through your misperception of the present moment, of God’s gift to you, unconsciously disconnected yourself, then it is also you, who has the power to now once again begin to consciously reconnect. You will know when you have once again re-connected with God’s Will, because you will have and feel a greater sense of peace, joy, clarity and understanding.
Why do we trust the ego when it demands that we judge ourselves for feeling frustrated, angry, fearful, anxious, sad, or depressed? How can we possibly heal what we do not allow ourselves to feel? Feeling your feelings is the first step to healing them. A successful journey cannot take place if you are blindfolded and unwilling to take the first step. And so that first step of feelings your feelings, is actually a gift that you are offering yourself, and not something to be judged as bad or weak. When we heal our minds, it is then that we can look at the world through a healed mind, and so healing our minds is the second step in true healing. In essence, by choosing to feel your feelings, you are opening yourself to healing, which then opens the door to the third step, which is to possibly, through your life experience, help heal the world. For it is only what is within you, the tools you have, that you can offer others and this world. What else but courageous would you call someone who’s willing to feel their feelings, in order to help heal themselves, and this world? Today, let us no longer buy into the ego’s deceptions that you must judge yourself just because you’re feeling feelings that may not appear to be pleasant. There is nothing, no step along your journey, that you need to judge and condemn yourself for, because every step along the way is a step that you have, unconscious of it as you may now be, co-created with God with your healing, growth, and awakening in mind. Once you are healed and awake, you will be able to use your whole life experience, all the so-called ‘good’ and ‘bad’ parts of it, the so-called ‘highs’ and ‘lows,’ to help those you meet along your path, grow, heal and awaken. As you use all your experiences to begin to help others heal, you will be able to better conceptualize, why you went through what you went through. Peace results when you realize why you went through what you went through, and so by helping heal others, you heal yourself. Let us be grateful to everyone, who by helping them, are helping us, heal ourselves. You will not be placed in front of anyone by chance, they are all a sacred part of your journey, remember this, be grateful and respectful of them, and honestly share yourself and all the lessons you have learned along the way, with humility, compassion, patience, peace and understanding.
Today, let us stop listening to the ego’s mindset, by making the conscious choice to end our own self-judgments. Let us instead acknowledge the strength and courage that it takes to feel our feelings. Let us instead be at peace knowing that there will come a day when we will heal, and by doing so, see how most of our low points were actually birthing some of our greatest highs. Judgments of self and low points go hand in hand. Judging yourself is judging God, for in truth we are all One. Anytime you are consciously judging yourself, you are unconsciously judging God. Is it any wonder why judging yourself does not feel good or right. Equally so, judging all others, is judging yourself, is judging God. Why consciously continue to do what only hurts and punishes you? Judgment, hurt, and punishment, are not expressions of Love, and Love is who God Is, because God is All, Love is who we are, and so naturally it does not feel right, good or loving to judge, hurt, and punish yourself or others. Always feel free to feel your feelings, but practice doing so with less of a sense of judgment, hurt, punishment and pain, and more with a sense of compassion, mercy, love, peace and understanding. Remember, you are always at your highest level of development, and thus you are always doing the best you can with the current coping tools that you have available to you. If you know that you are in truth always doing the best you can with the tools you have, then compassion, mercy, love, peace and understanding, should result, not judgment, hurt, punishment and pain. Know now that compassion, mercy, peace, love and understanding, are symbols that you are in alignment with God, and with our loving nature. And let us also remember, that judgment, hurt, punishment and pain, are also just symbols, that we are temporarily out of alignment with God, and with our loving nature. Now, that we have recalled this, let us today drop our self judgments, and simply take this opportunity to once again align with God and find peace. Let today be the start of such a day, where instead of judging ourselves we trust ourselves, and also trust that there indeed is Someone much wiser than us, who is helping us guide us through our journey. This guidance is Universal in nature, and thus it is not only for our good, but also for the betterment of all mankind.
Today, if you find yourself once again falling into the ego’s dark pit of self-judgment, choose to no longer put yourself down for this, instead realize that because your journey is a sacred co-creation with God, it will all be used for good, to help you grow, heal and awaken. If everything, all our experiences, are used for good, then were they ever really bad in the first place? If all our experiences become the tools that we use to heal, and then through our healing, help others heal, were they all in truth just gifts in disguise? And so today, feel free to feel your feelings, but consider doing so, more with a sense of love, kindness, compassion, peace, and understanding, and less with of sense of judgment, punishment and pain. Understand, in every moment of your journey, you are at your highest peak of development, and so, unconscious as you may be of it, you are always making the best decisions possible with the tools that you currently have available to you. Be gentle with yourself, simply align your feelings with God, with Love, and grow. There is nothing wrong with the way you have chosen to grow. Grow, heal and awaken, and with your whole life experience available to you, help others grow and become more gentle, compassionate and understanding with themselves.
