The importance of not judging
This is another fundamental step in our spiritual journey …it is a very difficult one because since childhood we have been taught to judge everything around us … For example: “this is pretty” “ugly” “okay” “wrong ” “true” “false” ….
That teaching was invaluable when we had to learn how to live and survive in this world, but if at present, in this HERE and NOW I want to evolve, I should be able to drop those value judgments and to transcend them….
Why is this so important? … Because otherwise we will stay trapped in an eternal duality … we will not have the ability to observe what is happening around us… we should look down as if we were standing at the top of a pyramid … and from that broad perspective which separates us from the objects we should observe everything, our gaze would widen itself and allow us to “see” beyond the obvious things….
We need to let go the omnipotence of the ego that makes us believe that our truth is the ultimate one …. we need to focus our look on the essence of things where the essential truth of everything that exists on earth lies..
Why is that something so difficult to achieve?… Because when judging the others we make them responsible for all the mistakes and the negative things around us and therefore we release ourselves from that responsibility and that makes us feel we are a better person …. Or because we think that If we can judge things and people that it means we have everything clear and in order in our lives and that entitles us to sentence others …. or because if we quit judging we will have to learn to accept things we cannot change … then will come the time to let the others flow and be themselves….the time to burn my old papyrus where my old knowledge is written and to open up to the uncertainty and mystery of Wisdom ….
Why is it such a fundamental step ?…. Because from the moment we stop judging we will recover much of the energy we were wasting … because from the moment we have no longer any prejudices or value judgments on which to lean on…. the strength in us will be born and that will really boost us towards our true path in life … because we will stop comparing ourselves in terms of similarities and differences and we will begin to love ourselves the way we are, who we are at heart and how we will accept ourselves without any ghosts from the past and without any outside opinions … because only when we stop judging, will we not be judged by others… .
Because what we give is what we get … Because what is growing inside us will flourish in our life …. It is only when we are free of the need to judge the outside world….that the real us will have started the journey to spiritual awareness ….
Have a beautiful day …
