In conjunction with the post, God and the illusion of Judgment, I’d like to further elaborate on this misunderstanding given its profound importance in seeking true growth. Furthermore, this concept and notion of judgment is so limiting it is absolutely heartbreaking what it is capable of and it is vital to understand in order to be protected from its negative nature. In my own journey judgment caused endless struggle and suffering and to escape its arrogance/ignorance brought infinite peace and serenity. Because of this freedom it is my pleasure to assist others in enjoying the same liberation and restoration of eternal rightness and lovability. Now I need to also clarify that this concept is a tricky one to talk about because often it can be perceived that I’m saying judgment is ‘bad’ or ‘wrong’ or an ‘error’. This is not my goal, judgment just is what it is, and it just so happens to be limiting. This is an objective fact determined through testing, experience, and observation. So judgment isn’t wrong at all, but we can conclude that it is limiting, again not something ‘bad’ just is. I write in hopes of helping you live life free from limitation, and judgment is one of the primary cores of limitation thus we must let it go in order to move forward. We do this not because it’s ‘better’ to be free but simply because we want to. No judgment either way 😉
Consequence and Judgment
If we examine consequence and judgment we initially see that they seem similar, yet are also entirely different in their degrees of freedom. Judgment, at its root, is based in fear and control whereas consequence is based in free-will and non-bias. Judgment implies partiality and the ability to be conditionally loved. Consequence implies unconditional love and the power to control one’s own fate and that one is only subject to that which is chosen through alignment of the will and intention. Fast forwarding to the grandest conclusion that we will continue to examine – God is not a judge. The soul determines its own fate according to its decisions and conscious alignment and therefore subjects itself to its own consequences that it believes it deserves. God’s love (acceptance for all choices) is equally constant at all times regardless of our life situation, and instead, is that which allows for all choices as a truly unconditional loving God beyond all limiting notions of partiality. Likewise, God’s perfect love (radical acceptance for all things) doesn’t have to be earned or ‘proven worthy of’ because it is completely devoid of such anthropomorphic needs or desires.
There is no investment in the limiting concept of judging for there is no one to do the judging in the first place. Divinity has no interest in judgment, needs, or desires and to believe so is extremely limiting to the nature of Divinity. Divinity is infinitely loving and unconditional and therefore is not subject to partiality of judgment because that would extremely limit potential creation. Divinity simply allows for consequences that are determined by oneself (the creation/projection) in every moment rather than some illusory separate judging God figure. Judgment day is every day, continuously within every moment, as dictated by our perceptions and what we believe is possible for ourselves. Divinity is equally all things and therefore has no preference in what a soul chooses.
Put briefly, if one continuously consciously aligns with unconditional love then the realms of Heaven and salvation are the consequence of such alignment simply because our perception sees all things as glorious and wonderful (including the seemingly ‘negative’ – which is just a limiting judgment). Likewise, if one consciously aligns with the energies absent/lacking love such as victimization, pride, hatred, or fear then realms of Hell are the consequence of such alignment (based on our perception we only see things to be upset about and life is full of limitation and lack). God has no preference or interest in either path, but rather equally, perfectly, and lovingly, allows for all options that are simply decided by each individual soul based on its perceptions and beliefs. Thus there is no reason to seek to control or condemn anyone, truth simply demonstrates the point of consequence and then allows all to choose for themselves. Truth has no preferences, desires, or motivations. Truth is unconditional, immutable, eternal, formless, and therefore beyond needs, approval seeking, or any other limited duality. With proper understanding of consequence, forgiveness and acceptance are able to come forth as powerfully healing energies of transformation.
The Significance is the Inner Reality and Intention
Judgment is based primarily on content (what we see “out there”) and in terms of religion, appearing ‘righteous’. Yet the truly righteous are humble, and righteous in silence, privately, and within. True righteousness has no interest in appearances and is beyond judgments of others. For the truly ‘righteous’ don’t even care about ‘righteousness’ because it is irrelevant and yet another judgment of being ‘better’ than say ‘sinful’ – both of which are limitations. The liberated have realized the complete distraction and limitation of belief in judgment and are concerned only with their inner reality, which is composed of their intentions, perceptions, and beliefs. The truly committed to life without limitation have no interest in subjecting themselves to the distraction of negativity (limiting beliefs) and know that they are always loved, right, and perfect just as they are. By owning the truth of consequence we are free from negativity because even while making ‘mistakes’ we are protected by knowing it is our humble desire to improve that leads to salvation. There are no actual mistakes in reality, all things are perfect as is.
All Suffering is Self-Created
All suffering is self-created through our own judgments, perceptions, and beliefs. So if we adopt the concept of consequence instead of judgment we are free from suffering by realizing all suffering is only due to a limiting belief stemming from our naiveté. We accepted and learned all our beliefs in innocence and naivete as a child and no one told us to assess later if we want to actually keep those beliefs. We don’t need to suffer from or live in fear of judgment that is unless we want to. Yet, I assume that you are here because you want to live free of limitations and so instead accept the clarity of consequence. Thus as upsets and set-backs occur along the path of self-improvement/life (as they inevitably will) we are free from getting stuck in suffering and negativity that are tempting to indulge in. The truly wise accept that all seeming ‘mistakes’ or ‘failures’ are actually only perfect lessons and growing opportunities and have no interest in wallowing in self-defeat. All things in life are a matter of perspective with nothing actually inherently being ‘tragic’, ‘bad’, or ‘wrong’.
Therefore with an understanding of consequence it allows us to transcend all obstacles through continued devotion and trust that all things necessary for our progression will be provided and indeed they are right now, in this very moment, always and forever. Divine Love will never forsake us, the notion itself is an impossibility. It is through this radical inner faith and dedication that our true reward is given through the consequence of such a pure loving belief. Anything that tells us otherwise is not based in love and is stemming from lack and limitation. For we are perfect always even while we stumble, and have nothing to prove or earn. We are the product of what we believe.
Judgment is a Temptation of Victimization and Vanity
We must go beyond appearances, we are accountable only to ourselves and Divinity, which are inevitably realized to be one and the same. Thus we must release all attachment to judgment which is a temptation of victimization coming from our drama starved ego/character script and was unknowingly learned and accepted. Releasing attachment to our judgments (which are all limiting – no matter how ‘divine’ or ‘truthful’) is to release attachment to the endless suffering that is caused by it. The emotionally hungry ego is getting something out of believing in judgment and loves all the energetic rewards it gets from it such as shame, self-defeat, or pride. In terms of humans judging each other, there is a vanity of feeling superior to others such as the trap of being ‘more righteous’ while others are ‘sinners’ or vice versa, or enjoying being a victim. Or that our particular view on life is the one and only or otherwise better/best. This is the most ridiculous of ego creations as the notion of judgment is taken to its absurd level of arrogant projection. Now again, reminder, all choices are valid and perfect as is, it is not ‘better’ to live without judgment just different. This writing is just specifically for those ready to live free from limitations and thus is identifying how limiting judgment is, but that doesn’t make it ‘wrong’, ‘worse’, or otherwise higher or lower.
To project judgment onto anyone else is the most ignorant of all ego vanities and is extremely limiting on our joy. By letting go of this vanity we can accept consequence, which is humble and has absolutely no concern for projecting onto others for to do so is realized to subject ourself to the consequence of doing so (ie. others projecting their beliefs unto us). Consequence has innate to itself the essence of love (acceptance) because one naturally only aligns with loving others due to proper understanding of consequence, which is unspoken. By embracing consequence we know that to love (accept) others is to only love (accept) ourself, for what we do unto others comes back to us. Indeed, it is the one who gives the service who is the ultimate recipient of blessings not the other way around. Hence Christ’s teaching of let the greatest amongst you be your servant.
True devotion and freedom comes from radically accepting ourself with all our seeming ‘darkness’ and ‘light’ and then this acceptance naturally extends to others effortlessly. Nothing should be forced, we should always be following our natural blissful state. Simply and profoundly, love and accept thyself, not in an egotistical manner but in a healthy respectful way that is self-fulfilling and naturally extends to unconditionally loving others. If we forget to love ourselves we quickly become overdrawn and exhausted from the world. The importance becomes paying attention to boundaries. We must always honor our self-love first, otherwise our love for others is not pure and is more so out of obligation rather than true giving. This is subsequently detrimental to all involved.
Transcend Judgment and Awaken to the Beauty All Around
Transcending judgment and realizing the beauty and love innate to consequence is absolutely transformative in its effect on our inner happiness and peace of mind. Judgment is an illusion, there are no external forces/powers to reckon with, all things are only within, including Divinity. Thus, go within and we will never go without.
Find peace in knowing we are perfect always and could never be otherwise. We are unconditionally loved throughout all our wanton ways, we are always lovable throughout our ‘mistakes’ or ‘failures’ for they don’t actually exist as such, it is only the perception of them that gives them negativity. All things are actually blessings and gifts in disguise, some are just more obvious than others. By aligning with consequence we re-own our power innately within and realize that it is our purity of heart and intentions that are most relevant, the world can judge all it wants it doesn’t have to effect us because we know nothing is personal. And even more so, we can only have compassion for others who are judgmental because they are only projecting their own inner judgment and self-disapproval. Consequence extends love, judgment projects ‘wrongness’. Align with love and be free forever by allowing for significant growth to come forth. The surge of positive loving energy that comes from letting go of judgment is absolutely amazing and life will truly never be the same. I love you unconditionally and infinitely as the same Self. We are one always and forever.
Namaste, Peace and Love always-
