Why Do We Judge?

Hello, my friends in Oneness,

I want to break away from the health-related blogs I've been posting, and get back to my mission of sharing Oneness. For this specific blog, I want to once again share insight on a topic we all fall prey to. A topic that, because of our ego, is so very much a part of our everyday lives. And that topic is: Judgment. I love the quote that I placed on the image you see here because of the truth that it represents: "When you judge, you are viewing the world as you'd like to see it, rather than as it is" This helps to explain why judgment in any form is just a response to what our ego wants us to believe. We know that it's the sole function of the ego to instill the falsehood of separation. To make us believe that we are separate from one another and separate from our source/God. The ego uses judgment as a tool in this fashion. This is what we are doing when we judge. We are looking at the world as we'd like to see it, rather than as it is. Acceptance. This is the part of the conversation, where I like to include the aspect of Oneness we know as 'acceptance'. That is because the only true way to get beyond the entrapment of judging at all is to embrace acceptance, which is the same as 'seeing the world as it is'. When we accept all that we see and all that is, it's impossible to judge. Judgment keeps us tethered to our ego and living within the lie that we are separate. I also like to connect our feelings to when we judge. Do you ever honestly feel good when you're judging someone? I don't. Yet, we all do it. We all have those lapses where we fall out of alignment, the ego takes over, and we judge. But the secret is, do you recognize when you do that? Do you catch yourself, and stop the judgmental thought in its tracks? That's how we know that we're living beyond the ego, and staying in alignment. Think about it. As with everything we face in life, we always have a choice. As long as we are alive we will (unfortunately) have our ego to contend with. It's just how we are meant to experience this journey as spiritual beings within a physical world. But when we recognize and understand its purpose, we can learn how to deal with some of its entrapments, like judgment. Here's a little test for you. The next time you're hoping for a sunny day, and you wake up and it's pouring outside, ask yourself this: 'Is there anything I can do about it?' Some might laugh at this simple example, but when we realize the absurdity of seeing the world as we'd like to see it, rather than as it is, we'll all have a good laugh.

In Oneness,
