Short and Sweet #25 – Judgement


I mentioned judgment as an example for the practice shared yesterday and it has stuck with me. We live in a world full of judgment and although I cannot change this outwardly, I can and do take action inwardly every day. Recognizing that judgment is not just looking at someone and thinking for example that he or she is overweight, but it can also been seen as he or she is attractive. I think that too often we only think of judgment as a negative view, when in fact it can be something we might perceive as a positive acknowledgement. You can tell the difference by the intent behind the so-called acknowledgement. OK a little rigorous honesty here, judgment is a big thing for me and when I started doing The Practice see #24 it revealed to me just how much I was judging. I find the gym one place where I get to practice The Practice by judging how people look or how they are working out. I then realized that even noticing attractive women at the gym was a judgment on my part. Meaning the intent was more sexual, yes I said that, sorry but let’s be honest a lot of us do that when we see an attractive man or woman. Therefore, I am getting plenty of practice around all kinds of judgment at the gym. The first action is to become aware that you are judging because a lot of this happens silently out of your conscious awareness. Start with admitting that occasionally you judge someone or something. Make an unbending intention that you want to change the behavior. Begin doing The Practice in #24 consistently throughout your day. If we really want to rid the world of judgment, we must rid our inner world of judgment first. As we shift the energy inside us, we raise our vibration and this in turn begins to change the world through the energetic matrix. Even if you think, I am full of it with the vibration and energetic stuff that should still not stop you from changing yourself. Everything else will take care of itself anyway, it always does. Oh and yes you can apply this to any behavior you want to change so please do not stop with judgment on my account. 😉
