Judgment or Discernment
These are interesting times. We are all inundated with enormous amounts of information.
The media hype and news continue to escalate on all subjects.
People are giving their opinions on a myriad of topics.
The name calling and criticisms abound and seem endless.
Time to turn down the noise (a previous blog) and create a different perspective.
Have you noticed the judgments, name calling, finger pointing?
Have you wondered when it will all come to an end so that we can live in a unified community of varying opinions with acceptance and without argument or hateful speech?
This is when I ask for guidance on all that is going on around me. And just like the direction given me for changing overcoming to the more expansive word becoming, I received a new insight.
Overcoming focuses on an event, etc. on the outside that affects you negatively, so you choose to change it, improve it, or overcome.
Becoming is an internal, higher self focus no matter what is happening on the outside as reality.
And so it goes with judgment and discernment.
I remember my brother-in-law saying, “When you point a finger at someone, there’s three fingers pointing back at you.” That means whatever you’re saying about another, you’re actually focusing on yourself three-fold. Not a pleasant feeling! Judgment can come from anger or lack or the need to feel more than another. Judgment creates turbulence and chaos that prevents our connection to the Higher Self.
Just as with becoming, discernment focuses on the internal self. There’s no need for outside events to affect the feeling. Discernment is the focus on what you like, love or feels good without looking at anything on the outside of you.
Discernment is all about YOU and feeling good, calling in the best, and connecting to something higher and bigger than yourself.
If I choose to judge events or people, I’m saying that they are not good enough, rich enough, the right color, ethnicity or sexual preference or belong to the political party I choose. And in essence, saying I’m not good enough.
If I choose to be discerning, none of the above matters. I am only focusing on my true joy and happiness.
At this point you may be saying, “Oh, how selfish!”
Maybe so. Yet, when I feel good and see joy in life, that’s all I see around me. If I am discerning about my feeling good, then that will be my focus. There’s no judgment here. There’s no energy or space for it.
You will have many opportunities to feel the difference between judgment and discernment. There will be no shortage of chances to say, “I choose to not judge in this moment and feel good.”
