Instead of judging ourselves or others, this exercise asks you to release judgment to God. As God is the only just judge, the use of judgment is in its only right place; the hands of God. We are relieved of judging ourselves or anyone else and freed to love ourself and others.
I judge all things as I would have them be.
Judgment was made to be a weapon used against the truth. It separates what it is being used against, and sets it off as if it were a thing apart. And then it makes of it what you would have it be. It judges what it cannot understand, because it cannot see totality and therefore judges falsely. Let us not use it today, but make a gift of it to Him Who has a different use for it. He will relieve us of the agony of all the judgments we have made against ourselves, and re-establish peace of mind by giving us God's Judgment of His Son.
Father, we wait with open mind today, to hear Your Judgment of the Son You love. We do not know him, and we cannot judge. And so we let Your Love decide what he whom You created as Your Son must be.
Quote of the Day
"We think there are different categories of life, such as money, health, relationships, and then, for some of us, another category called 'spiritual life.' But only the ego categorizes. There is really only one drama going on in life: our walk away from God, and our walk back."
