JUDGMENT IS A BOULDER

“I would see you as my friend so I may remember you are part of me and come to know myself.” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will allow and be.”

Allow and Be. Look, Surrender, Forgive.

Have we ever had a judgment about someone because their perception differed from our own? How we fought for our opinion, never questioning how it could be that two good people see something so opposite. Anger rises, voices become loud and soon no one is listening at all and nothing is resolved.

Aren’t we ready to ask the age old question, would we rather be happy or would we rather be right about this?  Being right can be extremely painful and exhausting like carrying a huge boulder up a sheer cliff with nowhere to lay it down.  Do we really want to shoulder that boulder?

What if we allowed judgment to be suspended and our thoughts to become fluid? This may mean simply agreeing to disagree.  Or it may mean really listening to the other person with an open mind and seeing things through their eyes for just a moment.

In giving up the fight, we now allow our thoughts to flow toward the Light of our true being. The weight of rightness is lifted from our hearts and life becomes a gentle path with all rocks and boulders rolled aside for us.  And then everything happens only in the way it was meant to.  And that way is governed by Love. The battle for rightness becomes meaningless for us as we lift our faces to God and say, “Your Will Be Done.”

There is no right or wrong, only God’s Holy Will which is always right. God’s Will is right because it comes from Love. No dramas. No differences. No battles. No judgments. No misunderstandings. Only pure and holy, all encompassing and total Love.

“Nothing has to “turn out well” for me to be happy. People do not have to “behave themselves” for me to love them. I am free.” Hugh Prather, Spiritual Teacher, Counselor, Writer
