Judgement - The Nature of Our Safety
26. Feb 2018
Back to this judgement deal, we all do it and we are now told that we shouldn't be doing it so as to be politically correct. Now stop for a moment, we all judge, and are told to not judge. Hmmmm, makes me wonder why more people are not having a nervous breakdown?
The secret is that it is our primal need to make judgements so as to keep ourselves safe. Safe from what you may ask? Whatever might be. Way back in the day it could have been a life or death confrontation with the dreaded saber tooth tiger, but not today it feels at times life or death confrontation with our spouse, friend, student, boss , child or any other person place or thing that we have to make a judgement call. What's the difference to? Today we live in a world that requires us to judge fight or flight five, ten , twenty or more times a day.
A simple timeline on a judgement call could be short if it is minor maybe a a moment a few seconds if there is no real emotional connection, no harm no foul, but those other judgement call we must make we ponder over and may not know the outcome for a long period of time. Wow , do you have one you are dealing with right now? Can you feel that knot in your neck or stomach? This is the same feelings everyone has felt at one time or another.
Question: Is it really life or death? If yes than give it the time and focus it deserves make the call , do the job, measure twice and cut. If on the other hand it is not that big of a judgement call step back a bit push it away from being right in your face and once again measure twice and make the judgement. Now how do we deal with the aftermath? Our own personal judgement of the choices we make? The simple answer might be you made a decision to the best of your ability and simply move on down the road putting it behind you.
That being said can you do that or have you done that or are carrying all those past judgements with you? If not than great but if yes then release yourself from the past which you have no more control over. This as easy as it was to recall the thought that you want get rid of, you can simply imagine that thought or event find the picture in front of you , yes it has to be there or it wouldn't be bothering you, yes now you have found it draw big black frame around it as to focus on this one event as you hold it in front of you let's focus on the image and like the old tv's had a knob or adjustment for contrast simply make the adjustment to ether blackout or the opposite whitening it out whichever feels better when you know it has been reduced to the best feeling you can now write across the image using your dominant hand writing whatever might be important to remember about that imagine and letting the rest go.
After completing the process of writing we can early shrink down that frame to the size of a postage stamp and raise it up over your head all the way back and nail it in the past intuitively instinctively completely putting it the past where it belongs. The information is available if needed but like your old taxes on a shelf somewhere totally forgotten. If you want to test and try to bring back the feeling you can try but in most cases it is truly best left in the past.
This is a simple tool to help release old feelings that no longer serves our needs. Most of us shower or clean our bodies daily, simply cleansing our mind and memories our unworthy thoughts is just as important allowing us to live our dreams.
Do you not hate to be judged? I certainly do and how I judge myself is even worse than the misinformed judgement of others. They usually only know less than half of how hard I have worked to get the less than desirable out they are sliding in to judge me on. I will let you in on a little secret shortly.
