Today my post is about being careful with your thoughts, words and actions. And it’s about judgment. I’m referring to the people who accuse another of something awful, then becoming a self-appointed judge and jury and finding them guilty before even bothering to find out if it’s true.
None of us are perfect. We’re all having a human experience here and I think sometimes we forget that we’re all in this together.
All humans make mistakes and most of us are willing to admit when we have. We apologize to those we’ve harmed, learn something from the experience and then move on. Not the case with some people I know. They would like to continue to punish and make others wrong even if they’re not. Holding grudges never solved anything and normally hurts the one holding the grudge the most.
So I say to those people right here and right now … let go of your fear, anger, persecution mentality, righteousness and “holier than thou” attitudes. You are NOT holier than thou. You may think you’re on the high road and others you want to make wrong are on the low road. If you really were on the high road, you would reach out and pull the others up with you and help them along. When it finally dawns on you (and it will) that gentleness, kindness and compassion are the methods that will allow for resolution of problems and disagreements far more effectively than inflexibility and righteousness, then and only then will resolutions be honored, respected and adhered to. How much destruction does there have to be until you “get” this? Just how much longer will you allow your ego to run rampant in your life?
The truth is that people who win battles out of anger and fear are never really winners. They will always be internally afraid that the ones they defeated will someday rise against them. How sad to have to live that way, when there are so many other choices.
The next time you make a decision, a choice, to make someones else wrong, think about what you’re doing. Is there something inside of you hurting so bad that you must make others feel wrong in order for you to feel right?
The universal law of reciprocity states that whatever you send out in thoughts, emotions and actions will manifest in some way and return to you. Just picture a boomerang.
What do you want to load your boomerang with?
