A Judgment Call

November 2, 2011

Right or Wrong… first or last… new or old… One thing is for sure – they are all judgments.

Judgments are subjective opinions that have no bearing over our lives unless we give them bearing. Once we buy into our judgments about ourselves and others, our judgments become very real to us. Sometimes we mistakenly form judgments against ourselves like “we are not good enough” or “we are not smart enough.” Over time, we come to believe in these judgments. What you buy into is yours. Why buy into something that is counterproductive to the soul? If there is nothing positive in your judgment towards yourself, I suggest you rethink it.

The same goes for other’s judgments towards you. It does NOT matter what anyone else thinks about you. It only matters what YOU think about you. When you learn to detach from other’s judgments of you, your life gets profoundly happier and easier to navigate.

Judgments are extremely limiting to our experience in human form. What we think – we create, so when we start to judge others unfairly, we miss an opportunity to open up to the richness that every being brings to the table for us. You cannot judge every book by its cover. When you make snap judgments about others, you close the door to learning about yourself. Everyone has something special to offer us otherwise they would not be on our path. Slamming the door on them says that you think you know better. And trust me, ignorance never knows better.

Life is a beautiful process of being open and vulnerable to all the world has to offer. Don’t dismiss someone unfairly, you might just miss an opportunity to evolve yourself. And all those unfair/unkind judgments you cast on others will unfortunately and undoubtedly karmically boomerang back towards you in time. Keep your mind and karma clear, resist negative judgments about yourself and others. In the end, you will be the one who comes out ahead.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
