Today, Casey and Erin discuss the process of non-judgement or rather, detaching from judging and opinions and how that can create openness, freedom, and connection. “The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.”
This is the benefit of meditation and cleaning our internal mirror.
When we see things as they are, it’s a lot easier because we are not in the state of resistance the whole time.
Resistance takes a lot of energy. When we resist our feelings and resisting what is true for us in the moment.
I think that’s where judgement comes in. It’s resistance to what is. We are trying to justify it or make sense of god’s creations. The device we are using to evaluate though is tainted with our life experience. So how we judge others will be true for us, and no one else.
We never know what another person’s truth is for them. That’s why it’s so important not to judge.
When we judge we put limits on ourselves and others.
What we judge other people for is what we do not accept in ourselves.
“Our parents, our children, our spouses, and our friends will continue to press every button we have, until we realize what it is that we don’t want to know about ourselves, yet. They will point us to our freedom every time.”
A great strategy to overcome judgement and connect with ourselves is:
How does it Feel?
What do I need in this moment right now?
“Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don’t have to like it… it’s just easier if you do.”
I interviewed a candidate for YTT today and we discussed how if I can produce openness in me I become like a pool of water. You can see yourself reflected in me. If that pool of water has the vibration of love, then when you see me, you will see love. I am grateful that I can offer that to people says Erin
“Never judge others. You both know good and well how unexpected events can change who a person is. Always keep that in mind. You never know what someone else is experiencing within their own life.”
