Today I want to talk about something we all do. Judgement. It's become such a large part of our lives that we just do it automatically. We judge others at work, at home, on the T.V., on the radio, even just in our minds as we think about them. But is all this judging doing us any good?
I believe it's one of the biggest factors that holds us back from our true success. Judgment, simply put, is fear. Being "right" by making everyone else "wrong" perpetuates a negative cycle that blocks our energy and true potential.
As a form of defense many people start to criticize others, while deep down they actually feel harshly critical about themselves, and every time you judge yourself, you're blocking your inner potential. It tears you down and hinders your own success. It depletes you, and everyone around you.
Self judgment is the most limiting factor when people fail to fulfill their dreams. Judgment of yourself and others makes people wary of you and less likely to work with you on your path to success.
This judgment will stop as soon as you no longer feel the need to make others "wrong." Besides, "right" or "wrong" doesn't actually exist, remember. It's just opposite ends of everyone's perceptions of life. Nobody is perfect, and instead of focusing on your flaws and thinking in terms of perfection and imperfection, we need to keep our vision on our unfolding potential.
Once we take a step back and acknowledge that we are all just a single cell in the vast body of the Universe, it comes naturally to cooperate for the benefit of the whole, just as the whole acts for our benefit. For example, heart cells don't judge liver cells and despite their differences, each cell harmonizes and works together to keep the body healthy.
In your own life, difficulty with others doesn't have to translate into an "us" vs "them" or "me" against the "world" attitude. Once you have the intention to drop the habit of judgment, bonds of cooperation can be formed, giving you a support network beyond your ability to do everything yourself.
At the same time, non-judgment relieves you of the constant need to compare yourself to other people. There's no need for negative comparisons because your path is unique, unlike anyone else's. Acceptance is love. It's nurturing, it feeds you. Having compassion for yourself and others without criticism or judgment creates the space for more blessings, abundance and success.
Let your heart feel the connection we were all meant to share. You'll build connections with others and sow the seeds of real meaningful growth. Does that sound like success to you? I certainly think so.
The secret is to be yourself with the intent of presenting your best self in every situation. Your best self, at the deepest level, is timeless and firmly embedded in the infinite field of consciousness.
