We have all been conditioned to judge and many people want to defend their right to have “good judgment,” as they find it necessary for their navigation through life. Yet through the eyes of spirit, judgment is the absence of love and acceptance.
Seeing through the eyes of spirit, there are levels to everything. In the purest light, there is no right and there is no wrong. There is compassion for the obvious density, fear, pain and confusion out of which many people operate. Through the eyes of spirit, unconsciousness is seen as “still in growth or in learning progress,” which is the reason for this earth play in the first place.
When we see through our human eyes, however, we witness killing, hatred and destruction, and well yes, we judge. We feel wronged by people and judge others as cruel, stupid and even worthless. Through our human experiences we see with judgment, as it has been programmed into our perceptions from childhood on. We were taught “good” and we were taught “bad”. But more so than judging others, we judge ourselves. The ego has a field day with making the self bad and “less than,” or great and “better than”.
As the consciousness shift on our planet is steadily progressing, we witness the need and desire for discernment. We begin to understand the psychology behind the infliction of pain is pain. The reason for aggression is pain and fear. Similarly, the reasons for betrayal, abandonment and manipulation are also fear and unconsciousness. We seem to be in agreement that a centered and calm person would act very differently than a person who is highly distressed and running on survival mode or fight/flight.
This is why it is time to bridge the distance between compassionate understanding for unconsciousness in the process of growth, and judging something or somebody. It is the practice of observation that allows us to register clearly “what is” and understand the deeper influences of what is at play.
We most often judge when we emotionally relate to the event or person. We also tend to judge ourselves more frequently when an outside event or person triggers us. What judgment really does is, it sucks us into the drama because it gets us emotionally involved. The practice of observation is a wonderful tool that can help us be present and see everything but at the same time remain in clarity about the bigger picture of what we are seeing. When we observe or witness from a bigger picture perspective we stand in our center, versus when we judge, we have been pulled out of our center by the emotions. And this doesn’t mean “to not feel” but rather to keep the emotions separate from the thought patterns for the time being. You can feel everything, while staying fully centered and present to the bigger picture. As a matter of fact, seeing the bigger picture means understanding that nothing is ever personal. Every soul grows in their own time. This perspective holds the space of observation and will lighten the emotional experience quite a bit. Leaving you closer to your innate essence of unconditional love and acceptance.
I am not a “turn the other cheek” kind of a person and being unconditional doesn’t mean you allow any kind of abuse, once you have observed it. Abuse in any form, including self-abuse, is not of divine truth. Hold the space of light but draw healthy boundaries when necessary.
In essence, judgment is a surface and rather shallow act. Through observation one sees everything, processes the information of the situation and what place the other person is operating out of. This gives all the clarity one needs to chose a conscious response or make a smart decision. Giving the feeling of “good judgment” but judgment free.
I am wishing you and yours a blessed day.
With Love and Light,
