You have been wrongly judged infinite times, and sometimes you may not even know it! Have you judged another wrongly changing your connection to them for the lesser of possibilities because of your ‘short sightedness’? Wounds that initiated judgments cause, often unrecognized by the ‘initiator’, silent boomerangs to increase the unchecked habits of unconsciously continuing them. What you don’t take responsibility for, be it unconscious habits even, create barriers to your raising consciousness. Of course, sadly, many are not attuned to want to raise their consciousness. Inner growth is an energy for all outer growth.
The use of ‘skillful means’ in relating to others is an art of ‘interaction’ that is a form of giving and then of receiving. The energy is circular. We as humans can be above animals that seem to always find ways to fight. As sentient beings who have available all the means of being godlike, it seems a waste of life’s opportunities to not ‘hone’ all our inner skills including the sensitivity of a smooth dialog.
We become hostages to habits that if self vetted and examined, would at least put them at the forefront of attention to correct. ‘Assuming without verification’ is like taking a swim in the ocean without knowing that sharks have been spotted near offshore. Judging is not always personal with repercussions such as missing a target at a rifle range. Always consider repercussions, though they may be invisible. When someone else is involved as a target, remember empathy, and what your action might feel like coming from the other side. An open heart has compassion.
Wrong judging can create abominations of hatred or hidden hostility that in worst cases, shut’s the door for future connections ’til death doth part’. Sadly, that happens in many families until it’s too late for repairing what could have been caused by a simple off the cuff judgment. On the positive side, perhaps another’s wrong judgment could protect you from further interaction that might be best avoided anyway. A few years ago, a new sister-in-law let it clearly be known to me that, having over heard a political talk with someone else, she made it clear that she didn’t appreciate me being around. As it turns out, she’s known to be very challenging verbally to be around anyway. Avoiding negative judgmental energy from someone can create an opening to not waste energy trying to change future aggrievances, and perhaps a vamping of your positive energy.
Avoid the disease of ‘judgmentitus’! Why be an egregious abuser of heart felt choices of action and words? The creation of ‘good karma’ starts with you and your awareness! Meditating is like someone with poor vision working on a technique to get 20-20 vision!
