Those who are confused remain so certain about their judgments of others -- they overlook the innocence of themselves in the process.
Those who are wise become aware of their judgments toward others, as a way of making peace with their inner critic and knowing themselves on a more intimate level.
Those who are still imprisoned project inner criticism onto others, while organizing lynch mobs of like-minded prisoners to search for additional proof to defend their claims.
Those who are being liberated recognize any criticism of self or judgment toward others as opportunities to love themselves more often.
Those who see injustice imagine the projections of their own criticism as a means through which others can be made more aware, in attempt to rally a movement to overcome the adversities in view. All the while, not ever seeing how meeting manifestations of negative energy with more antagonism only fuels the fire of cruelty to create more time and space where actions worth criticizing can arise.
Those who know the truth of injustice view each atrocity or hardship as manifestations of humanity’s history of inner criticism come to life. While the adversities in view that may bring suffering to self and others doesn’t have to be seem fair, reasonable, or even acceptable, there is an acceptance that more finger pointing, resistance, judgment, opposition, and lashing out does not extinguish the flames of victimhood that are first resolved energetically before social action can occur.
Just as atrocities come to life to reflect humanity’s history of inner criticism, it is your willingness to transform your inner critic into a catalyst of conscious action, by loving yourself and blessing the world more often, that creates Heaven on Earth for the benefit of all. This does not occur by attempting to stop your inner critic, but recognizing each moment of external judgment or internal condemnation, as a desperate plea to take a momentary break from your life and embrace your heart with greater authenticity, interest, compassion, and care.
The inner critic is a shadowy persona the inner child adopts. It arises in attempt to capture more of your loving attention, when the time and energy you give to the outside world, or people in view, is not balanced with quality time spent nurturing yourself.
When the outside world or other characters in your life become the siblings to your inner child, who get the attention it yearns to receive, the innate innocence of your eternal light begins to dim into a shadow of your least redeeming qualities. When this occurs, you may find yourself lashing out against anything that your inner child believes gets more of the attention it so rightfully deserves.
As the shadow is rooted in your energy field as a conditioned level of consciousness, or ego, you are bound to perceive unfairness in your personal life, or atrocities throughout the planet, as more fuel for the shadow to condemn. The shadow condemns as a result of feeling denied by your priorities and left out of the kindness and care that you may reserve for others.
When the shadow is active, life becomes stressful. When stress is present, anything is bound to be judged by the self-destructive level of consciousness you have yet to awaken from. Until such an awakening occurs, the shadow either plays out as characters who are victimized or those who victimize others.
To end the cycle of victimhood, as a gift of liberation for one and all, may you become aware of how much time and energy you give to outer affairs and how little time may be spent sitting still, breathing in a more relaxed way, and making your true innocent nature the subject of your attention.
This can be confusing for the most dedicated spiritual seekers, who may spend time analyzing their behavior under microscopes of self-judgment, but have yet to engage in honoring, cherishing, and embracing the parts of self that only act unconsciously as ways of crying out for love. Instead of turning the unfairness of life into a spiritual obstacle course, may you recognize the inner critic as the shadow aspect of ego, who attacks the very things it believes has robbed it of your loving attention.
If your time is consumed with too much attachment to the roles you play, your inner critic will judge the behavior of co-workers, be treated unfairly, or constantly desire a change in career. If you regularly define yourself by the validation you seek from others, your inner critic will make each of these characters the subject of its assault, as a result of how each character treats you.
If you tend to give all of your attention to the outside world with little-to-no quality time spent nurturing your inner reality, you will perceive the very injustices that validate your inner critic’s need to lash out at anything in sight. If your spiritual journey is consumed in the never-ending quest for self-improvement, the shadow becomes your harshest critic and dresses up as every perceivable energetic obstacle that no amount of healing modalities may ever resolve.
The solution to this fundamental imbalance that unravels the shadow, integrates your inner critic, transforms relationships, and raises the vibration of the planet to inspire the social change that you wish to see equally occurs by loving yourself more often.
May you become aware of external judgments or patterns of inner criticism, as messages from your highest guidance to stop and embrace yourself at a more fundamental level.
May each judgment remind you when you are unknowingly aligned in stress.
May the arising of stress help you recognize when a life of endless hope and well-intended passion has become imbalanced.
May the nature of imbalance, discord, or disharmony reveal how much time other things get and how little time may be spent honoring, adoring, and celebrating yourself – just as you are.
When the deeper purpose of stress can be recognized as messages sent from your highest guidance, you begin to feel safe in your body and at ease in the world around you.
When aligned in the safety of your natural state, you begin to perceive a world of events that you are least likely to judge. In the absence of judgment, a world transforms before your eyes to bring equality, justice, abundance, harmony, wellness, peace, truth, and oneness to life for the well-being of all. if such messages are overlooked or denied, fear becomes the vibration you radiate to obscure the lens of your clearest seeing.
May your desires for global change, the fulfillment of every prayer, and yearning for greater spiritual connection be simultaneously fulfilled through your willingness to love what arises.
It is important to remember, you don’t have to love the circumstances in view, or tolerate the behavior of others, in order to recognize how manifestations of victimhood exist to help you turn inward and embrace the one within your heart who starves for your attention.
Equally so, you don’t have to withdraw from life or check out of your personal play in order to create more pockets of time, where loving yourself can become equally as important as the social change you’re here to endorse.
As a play of energy, reality is transformed from the inside out. When inner harmony is established by healing your relationship with your heart, you are then able to bring a higher vibration of consciousness into the world to create the social change that benefits all.
Whatever arises, love that. This is the heart of awakening. TrueDivineNature.com
