Making Choices

I have successfully been making choices that have improved my life. By changing my focus, by viewing life from a place of only looking for the beauty in all I see, I have changed my life. I had to ask myself while on this non judging mission, what does judging do for my life, how does it serve me? I believe we as humans only do and continue to do things that work for us, that serve us in some way. So this was a good question for me to help myself in altering my ways in regards to judging. I believe as I have stated in the past that judging comes from our conditioned minds, meaning we are taught the behavior. Fear,  that is right, fear is a good reason to judge. Well not a good reason, I don't believe there is any good reason, but it is the reason we become conditioned to judge. As children we are taught that there is good and bad and to fear the bad. Now depending on where and  with whom you grew up this will vary a lot. Just think about it. Once I realized this and started questioning my fear of anything different then myself, or different from what I was taught to believe was right I started finding it much easier to see the beauty in all things. I still find that I do not like some peoples behaviors, but that is different then judging them for who they are. I find it easy to simply remove myself from the situation, look for the beauty and live on. Things are good ~ Jacque

  1. There are some great nuggets of truth here. No one likes to be judged, yet there are MANY who judge. The world would be a much better place for all if the golden rule,"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," were applied by all.
