Judge Not

be very careful about passing judgment on each other’s learning experiences.  Raise Your Vibration


One of my daily prayers is "Please allow me to release all judgement" 

The struggle is real!

From wanting things my way

From not knowing the full story

From the timing being out of sync

And yada yada yada

Judgement

How something "should" be

I should be further along in my life and finances right now

I should be over the divorce


All this shoulding on myself! And when this happens I do the same on others

All this triggered by both a conversation and the fact that society has told me that I am a "financial risk"

I know there is a lesson in there somewhere including me taking responsibility for myself and my finances

My responsibility now is to get still, listen, get the lesson and get out of the mess

When I judge others I judge myself and vice versa- the cycle continues

Everyone has their own lives, lessons and journey

that is an undeniable fact, paying attention to our own and learning the lessons makes it easy to stay out of other people's stuff


Peace
