Following is an excerpt from a recent automatic writing session.
Now let’s talk about judgment—of yourself and others. Judgment is important. You can play with words and call it “discernment”, but it’s judgment. Judgment keeps you safe from bad situations and toxic people. Judgment, if done in an objective and loving way can help you to grow and change. Just like the ego, judgment isn’t all bad. It’s how it’s applied to life that determines its “goodness”. If you’re using judgment as a way to preach to others or control others, that’s not a “good” use of the word. If, however, you’re using judgment to gain understanding about a situation in a fact-based manner instead of a purely emotional reaction, then that is a “good” use of judgment.
A couple days later, in a subsequent automatic writing session, the topic was again presented, with a slightly different slant…
It is important not to blame others but to fully accept responsibility. In doing so, it is important to love yourself and not be critical and judgmental of your choices, your feelings, your thoughts and your actions. It is important that you focus on love. You need to be more like God. Seeing all. Acknowledging all. Accepting all. And in turn, loving all. It’s not the point to say you love when you’re actually hardening your heart. The trick is to really let go of the outcome and the discord and the trespasses and just allow acceptance and then love to wash over you.
Objectively Judging Life
This is both for strangers and for yourself. It is important for your lessons and your growth to see things through clear lenses instead of rose-colored glasses, but still accept at face value what you see. Loving acceptance is the key. That doesn’t mean you can’t change or improve. But it DOES mean you can’t be angry about a butterfly going through it’s normal metamorphosis. You need to accept and look at things from a different perspective and only then will you see a bigger perspective; a more universal understanding that comes. This objectivity will make it easier to love, because these things that happen won’t be for you or at you, but rather independent of you.
