    Learn to Report Instead of Judge

    There is a world of difference between reporting and judging.

    When you report, you merely say what happened. I am going through this. I did this. I feel this. But when you judge, attitudes and feelings are added on. I am going through this; therefore I’m deficient. I did this; therefore I’m wrong. She did that; therefore there’s something wrong with her. I feel this; so I must be bad.

    Reporting brings clarity and helps move us forward. Report on what is happening in your life as often as you like. But try not to judge. Judgment limits, confines, brings condemnation down on others and ourselves. It says who you are, where you are, what you are doing is wrong. That leaves little room to move, and even less space for acceptance. It diminishes the freedom to grow and evolve.

    Reporting without judgment doesn’t mean we approve of what’s going on or that we don’t have feelings about the situation. Nor does it mean we have to tolerate whatever comes our way. But when we can report without judgment, we can accept. And acceptance sets us free. Acceptance is that place from which all growth and change occurs.

    When there is truth and acceptance without fear of judgment, there is love.
    Create your own world of love.

    Thanks for this daily meditation Sunny. I think this isa great post that we should all take to heart. Judging others can be so easy to do if we dont think first. A little old saying " Treat others as you would want to be treated" or
    "Don't say things about others ,that you would want said about you". Eonderful post. God Bless you.

    Thank You so much for sharing this great post with all of us.

    The words of Jesus tell us that before we look at others we should look within ourselves. If we are going to look at someone and judge them, then let us look within ourselves first. Let us put our own house in order first. The way things work in the world and in our Christian faith is that we all build our own house. The house we build will be of poor quality if there is a 2 by 4 in our eye. It is bad if we build a poor house because the house we build affects others. What is even worse is when we have a 2 by 4 stuck in our eye and we try to tell other people how to build their house. A speck, most people can handle on their own anyway. In our Christian walk, our walk starts and finishes with us and Christ, not with us making judgements about others. It is with humility and meekness that we are to reach out to others. When we are humble and meek we want to serve others regardless of their spiritual condition.

    Many Blessings to you, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_22.gif' border=0></a>
