A judgement is an experience of oneself. When I judge someone’s looks, I am really judging my own looks in comparison (if I’m better, equal, or worse as I define those judgement platforms). Judgements will always be an inner battle of Needs (Intuition) Vs. Wants (Ego), but it can become an outward battle when we physically act upon those judgements (when they are projected upon ourselves or upon others).
When we judge ourselves in mind (thought, emotion), we influence ourselves in body (physical reality). It is important to be aware of our judgements because they can hold consequences, both good and bad. However, it is easy to get stuck within our judgements and hold ourselves in a spot where we feel as though we cannot get out (or cannot see a need to get out no matter how much our peers may encourage that path). The problem with this situation is that we feel more comfortable being stuck than being free (comfort in chaos) - this would require us to face a hidden pain that brought on these judgements of ourselves in the first place.
Can you reach deep within [your past self] and find the hurt child or teenager that has caused you to judge yourself and others?
Judgements are necessary to help us take a wider perspective, to grow, and, ultimately, to learn about ourselves. When you have an opinion about something, whether inward or outward, ask “Why do I have that opinion?” Is that thought an unbiased opinion or a biased judgement? Who is speaking? Your Intuition or your Ego?
Your Intuition - Full awareness of your actions and their consequences, ever-present in the moment, and a complete acceptance of self. Intuition encourages the choice of what is Needed to achieve peace in the present by trusting in the future. Needs are often based on all experiences of the past (good or bad), an ability to be present/conscious within the moment, and a faith/understanding that one cannot control the future (only their present actions and reactions can encourage a future of their desires).
Your Ego - Unawareness of your actions and their consequences, imprisonment in the past, and an un-acceptance of self. Ego encourages the choice of what is Wanted to achieve an illusion of peace from moment-to-moment. Wants are often based on past negative experiences, an inability to be present/conscious within the moment, and a lack of faith that the future will work in one’s favor (because of a stuck past).
The next time you judge someone about their looks, their weight, their body, their diet, their mannerisms, their personality, their family, their friends, their past, their present, their future, their attitude, their self-destruction, their accomplishments, their drive, their talents, their inabilities, and your own experiences of them…
Consider what judgements others may have of themselves that influence their thoughts & emotions, their mentality, and their physicality (just as you do of yourself).
Nobody’s perfect, and we need to be aware and accepting of that fact.
