No One Is Worthy of This

No one is worthy of my judgment, and everyone is worthy of my love.

It's so easy to judge.

We're so quick to do it.

We're so practiced at it.

We're so good at it!

Did you know that we use judgment as a means to keep ourselves safe? Physically, psychologically, socially, and emotionally. Judgment is a technique we use to protect ourselves.

The thing is, most of us aren't in danger as much as our primitive brains think we are.

Yet we continue feeding our relationships with judgmental resentment.

We feed our minds with limiting self-judgments.

We feed our actions with resignation and cynicism based on some judgment of how things are, how they aren't, how they used to be, and how they should be.

And we do all of that to keep ourselves safe from a tiger that isn't there.

Even my own kids - gorgeous, compassionate, and much more generous than I have been most of my life - I can be so judgmental of them sometimes.

Judgment has no place in making a difference with others. Kids are not worthy of any of it - adults aren't worthy of it either.

No one is worthy of my judgment, and everyone is worthy of my love.

Every. Single. Time. that I transform my judgments into love, I elevate my state of being and more positively impact the people in my life.

Our judgments are gateways to love. We don’t have to “overcome” our judgments. We certainly don’t want to judge them. Turning our judgments into opportunities to love is our access to peace, freedom, joy, and empowerment.

Am I being judgmental, or am I being loving? I can't be both at the same time.

What impact might it have on your life if you were able to turn even just some of your judgments into love?

Thanks so much for reading. 🙏❤️

Our inner work is not about Becoming our Best. Our inner work is about Being our Best.

Much of our lives is spent avoiding the things we don’t like and seeking the things we do like. Something else is possible.

Whether we intend to or not, we've been planting a forest our whole lives. What are you committed to growing from this point forward?
