Okay, picture yourself walking down the street. It's in the middle of the afternoon.
The sun's out. It's warm. The birds are chirping. You've been having a pretty good day. You're not thinking
about anything in particular. You're just feeling pretty good. You feel good about the world and you feel good about yourself.
You're walking along, and then you come to the end of the block. You turn the corner around the building and suddenly,
there about ten feet in front of you, is a homeless man sitting on the curb of the street. He is unshaven, his hair is matted,
his clothes are tattered and torn and dirty, and he emits a foul odor. As you pass him, he turns to look at you. In the ten
seconds between the time you first saw him and the time you have your back to him, walking past him down the street, how many
judgments did you make?
Judgments, not observations! Observations are what we gather from our senses. We observed
his hair and his clothes and his physical appearance. That's just raw data we take in through our senses. Judgments are
how we react to those observations.
How did we judge that man? Did we judge him to be lazy? Did we judge him to
be stupid? Did we judge him to be a danger to us? Did we judge him as a poor victim of society? Did we judge him to be either
an alcoholic or drug addict? Did we judge him as a loser? A failure? Did we judge him based on our own fears of failure? Did
we judge him as unhappy? Did we judge him as unworthy of our attention? Did we judge him as a menace? An irritant?
Seeing the man, how did we judge ourselves in comparison? Did we judge ourselves as being lucky. Did we place the judgment
of guilt on ourselves for having so much more than the man? Did we judge ourselves as being superior to the man? Did we judge
ourselves as potential victims of the man? Did we judge ourselves as the man's savior? Did we judge ourselves as having
our day ruined by the sight of the man? Did we judge ourselves as being more worthy of love than him?
If we could
put those ten seconds into very slow motion and notice every single judgment we make, we would probably notice that we made
a lot of judgments in a very short time. It is quite natural for all of us to make judgments on a continuous basis. That's
how we operate; how we've been conditioned. There is nothing "wrong" with that. That is how we've done it
for a very long time.
But there is another way!
The way we register judgments is with emotions. Every
judgment comes with an emotion attached. If you look very closely at every judgment this will become obvious. If we judged
the man as a failure, we just sparked all the emotions we attach to failure. For some that would be a fear of failure. For
others it would be guilt of failure. If we judged the man as a danger, we just sparked all the emotions we attach to danger.
For some this would be an emotional thrill. Others would feel fear. For others an emotional victim mode sets in. Others would
see the man as a potential victim and get emotionally excited. There is always a little emotional spark when we make a judgment.
Conditioning our judgments, by the way, is how rulers rule people. Manipulating and conditioning our judgments
and emotions is how mass consciousness is controlled. It is what mass consciousness is made of. An astute ruler knows he can
pass a certain judgment and get the desired emotional reaction from the masses. (That's why rulers use the word/judgment
evil when they want the people to get emotionally ready for a war.) And yes, churches control the people through judgment
and the resultant emotion. And they usually have a long list of judgments to live by, so they can control a large spectrum
of our emotions. Their judgments produce fear and guilt. That is how you control people; through fear and guilt.
Since judgment is a combination of thought and emotion, there is energy to every judgment since thought and emotion have
energy. When we make a judgment, we are energizing whatever we are judging. Let me repeat that: When we make a judgment, we
are energizing whatever we are judging!
What does that mean? It means that if we judge the homeless man as lazy,
then we are energizing any lazy inclination he might have. If we judge him to be a danger, we are energizing any inclination
he might have to be dangerous. If we judge him to be a victim, we are energizing the likelihood of him being one. As for ourselves,
if we judge ourselves superior to the man, then we energize and strengthen our superiority complex, giving energy to ego.
If we judge ourselves to be in danger, we energize that likelihood. If we judge ourselves as guilty for having more, we energize
Judgment is an energy exchange, both between us and another other person, and within our selves. Judgment
is a function of duality. To judge something, one needs a second something to judge it against: Good/evil, night/day, strong/weak,
rich/poor, white/black, etc. As long as we are judging, we are in duality. Guaranteed! And as long as we are in duality, we
are in emotions, as opposed to feelings. This is where most of us are almost all the time. This is how we live most of our
lives, in a dualistic hampster wheel: judgment-emotion, judgment-emotion, judgment-emotion.
But there is another
Most of us are not even aware of most of the judgments we make on an ongoing basis. They are habitual. We
are usually more aware of the resultant emotions. These judgment/emotion patterns are self-perpetuating. It is through an
awareness of these patterns that we can decide to step out of them into another way.
And yes, that other way is
one-ness. When we're in one-ness, we are operating on feelings rather than emotions. We are not creating a polarity through
judging. In one-ness, everything just is. When we're in one-ness instead of duality, and when we're in feelings instead
of emotions, then we align with the feeling vibrations of love, joy, and beauty. And we will be able to find love, joy, and
beauty in everything we come into contact with--even a homeless man. When we can do this, then we are energizing the love,
joy, and beauty of everything we come into contact with, rather than the dualistic patterns. This changes the whole world!
And you know, everyone seems to want to know how to develop their psychic abilities. Well, it's not so much
a matter of developing those abilities as releasing the patterns of duality that is shielding us from those abilities. Psychic
ability is a feeling function, not an emotion function. If we can learn to react from feelings rather than judgments/emotions,
then we're using those psychic abilities that are always there, but we don't see them because we're too busy judging
and reacting emotionally.
If we had turned that corner in one-ness, there would have been no judgments made, and
we would have been able to quickly feel the vibratory essence of that man, and we would have seen love, joy, and beauty in
his eyes when he turned to look at us--despite whatever judgments he was making about himself. And by making an energy exchange
with him of unconditional (no judgments) love, joy, and beauty, we uplift him energetically, despite the duality he may wish
to cling to. Turning that corner in one-ness, we would be immune to any judgments he might make on us. If we keep going around
uplifting each other like that, it will eventually pull us out of the density of strict duality. We have created and live
in a reality of duality, but when we add the third ingredient of one-ness, we create a whole new reality, a reality known
to some as Heaven on Earth.
We are all divine beings. We are Creators. We can create anything we desire. We do so through the use of feelings.
When we utilize feelings, our creations come quickly. When we use emotions, we create more emotions, and what we desire remains
beyond our reach. When we are in judgment/emotions, we create by default, magnetically attracting to us circuitry and events
that fit our judgments/emotions. When we slip out of judgment/emotion, and live our lives in feeling, then everything we create
will be an expression of love, joy, and beauty.
How many times a day do you judge your body? What judgments do
you make when you look in the mirror? How do judge that gray hair? Those wrinkles? That beer belly, or those extra pounds?
How many times a day do you make a disparaging remark about that bum knee? Or those painful feet? Or those incompetent fingers?
How many times do you judge your body as incompetent? As un-sexy? As fat? As tired? As sick? As anything less than god-like?
If we are creating by default through our emotions, then every judgment we make gets energized, and that means
that every judgment we make about our body will be energized and will become part of our creation. And not just our judgments,
but all the judgments others make on our bodies as well, whether that is friends judging your waistline or doctors judging
us as cancerous. Every time we judge our bodies and every time we accept a judgment placed on our bodies, our bodies respond
in kind, manifesting those judgments.
Of course we make a gazillion judgments a day, so our bodies are in a state
of confusion as to which judgments to manifest, so the body creates an amalgam of all those judgments. The judgments made
most get the most input into the creation. So if we make 100 judgments a day about how fat we are, and we make 0 judgments
a day about how beautiful we are, then, in all likelihood we will manifest the reality of obesity in whatever way we perceive
it. How many judgments a day do you make about how beautiful you are, or how healthy you are?
