Recently I have been exploring the topic of judgement, as I have come to realise that we are very judgmental for most of our life. Judging others is so much a part of what we do that I’m often not even aware that I am doing it. I have found that in order for me to be able to see a behaviour clearly, I need to be able to get a bit of distance between me and the behavior:
What is it that we judge others for? I think I can honestly say ‘everything.’ And the ridiculous thing is, what we judge others for is often the opposite of the same thing. For example, I have judged people for being too fat and too thin, too loud and too quiet, too stupid and too intelligent, too ugly and too good looking, too sensible and too reckless.
Judgement is also rejection because each time we judge another, what we are in fact saying is, “I do not accept the way that you are choosing to be.” And this rejection is likely to push another even further into disharmonious ways of being
Acceptanceon the other hand is gifted with grace and allows others the freedom to move and change at their will.
Everything in life falls into one of two categories – it either supports us to return to the Truth of who we all are, or it hinders the process of return. Could it be as simple as understanding that judgement hinders our return, whereas acceptance speeds us on our way?
So,, judgement gives us a very limited way of being on the world, it is like moving in a screenshots but never seeing the whole panorama presented…..!!!!
