Judgement: a waste of time 1/3

I believe that I only have a certain amount of time on this planet in this physical body. So when I figure something out and realize it is actually wasting my time…I am compelled to change it.

Now judgement. I know in my heart that it really is not my place not to judge anybody. Spiritually and in the realm of kindness I get it.

However today…one of the lessons that logically told me it is a waste of time came through.

A man by the name of David Hawkins stated : “Judgement is like trying to measure water with a ruler. You are using the wrong instrument to apply to the human life.

He went on to explain that we have no way of knowing the infinite number of events that have occurred to bring even a spec of dust to this moment in time. Never mind the events that have occurred in one persons life or life times.

I get it! I have no idea where anybody is truly coming from. I have no idea what anybody has gone through, been through, felt, seen, lost, loved, experienced – I know nothing.

Today I am still trying to figure out my own behaviors and the roots of those. How am I to judge another?

I am not. I cannot possibly. Not correctly anyways….and I hate being wrong. ha ha!!!

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

  1. I disagree. Sometimes you have to make judgments about a person or else you’re going to be taken by a con. That’s the way of the world. It’s true that everyone is fighting a battle we don’t know about but on the other hand, sometimes that battle doesn’t matter … that person we’re dealing with might be out to bring us into their personal battle. You HAVE to make judgments about people ALL the time … or else you’re going to get your ass kicked.

    & sometimes making a judgment about a person means you’re going to make a new friend. I don’t buy this “don’t make judgments” BS at all. You make judgments about people, about the weather, about that head of lettuce in the produce department you might want to buy, about everything … that’s called being an adult.

    1. Ahhh yes I definitely do not feel as an adult – as of yet anyways. And that is not being sarcastic it’s very true for me. So as I need to navigate daily what feels best to me with out picking up a drink and drug….so shall it be 🌈just like everyone else – only they truly know what is best for them 💜 have a good day & thank you

  3. The day we finally see and understand our fears, something will happen…we will understand that all our judgements were based on ‘our’ fear. Poking bits at others to protect ourselves, physically and emotionally. Like ‘don’t be stupid’ towards an action around us…only because we feel that judgement towards us (our fear), that we have had from those we love and look up to as children…and going through that learn to do the same in the same circumstance. And on it goes through everything we have learned, judgements in so many things and the negativities associated with them.
    Once we ‘see’ what our fear is built on, understand that it has been a lie, to ourselves and others, we let it go. It no longer serves us in any way so we just stop doing it. We become silent because we no longer ‘react’ to the world and just let it go. After a lifetime of ‘being’ a certain way it does take time to let go those many things, those habits, those ingrained bits of us…but let go we do. And in that silence a peace and love grows, we have found that love and happiness we have ever searched for, gently waiting behind that wall of fear. Dare to look, and it will look back ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
