Positive: Assessing/being assessed Taking a stand Seeing situations in a new light New understandings Recognizing worthiness
Negative: Seek more clarity You must take a stand Feeling unworthy Being too judgmental of self/others
Judgment card- ask yourself, are you worthy, or are there still lessons to be learned? What knowledge have you amassed? Do you need to go back and redo certain lessons, or have you learned what you needed to learn from them? Are you ready to, are you worthy to enter the kingdom?
Compassion is understanding without judgment. Practice at it. It gets easy with practice.
Suspend all agendas. Cancel all plans. What then fills in the gaps is the truth of who you are.
People often wear masks out of fear- fear that who they really are is insufficient or inadequate. Based on what though? Based on what their ego tells them. Their egos will tell them that the others are saying something quite negative and contrary to the actual truth.
Only when you are awakened do you begin the search for answers. The unawakened drift through their life oblivious to the grander scheme that this lifetime is about. But do not judge. Perhaps they are gathering strength, knowledge, understanding and clues that they will bring back with them in their next lifetime.
Some people will hear the call to awaken, but they do not do so. They do not do so out of fear- fear that what they have built in this lifetime will crumble. What they are not realizing is that these things must crumble. They serve no higher purpose than simple ego gratification. These things that they built are mere symbols of the “I” ego. Things built to say, “Look at me!” But the “me” they are referring to is a false “me.” It is a “me” based on social conditioning and ego, not based on the plan created for this lifetime. What you do not achieve this lifetime will be given another chance in another lifetime. How many lifetimes will it take? The universe has infinite patience with you in this, knowing the challenges involved with, when incarnated on the earth, hearing the voices and awakening to and accepting your purpose. And there are many many purposes and many many lessons to learn. You may feel yourself to be an enlightened being, and for all intents and purposes, you probably are, for this lesson. How many incarnations did it take you to learn it? That is an unanswerable question and open to speculation, not absolute truths. Okay, that is well and good for that purpose, but what about the other purposes? The other lessons to learn? How far along are you on the path to understanding them? You may be an enlightened being now, having learned and understood all there is to learn and understand for this lesson, but you may incarnate again and be completely in the dark, at the starting point of a new lesson to learn. So what does this word “enlightenment” mean? It is relatively meaningless, having no basis of comparison outside of speculation. Can you look at another person and compare yourself to them in terms of who is more and who is less enlightened between you? This is a ridiculous notion. Do not bog yourself down with such endeavors. If you consider yourself “enlightened” or on the path to “enlightenment” then serve as an example to others, offering guidance on how they too may answer and discover their own truth.
Living “The Big Lie” when you hear the call, but ignore it. You think there must be some mistake. “Me? More to my life than just this? No. There must be some mistake.” And so you ignore the call. The Awakening. You let your ego lie to you about who you really are. Your ego tells you that you are “just as you are- only as you have seen.” This is not the truth. The truth is that you are a spiritual being having a human experience, as the old bumper sticker I used to have said. To not accept yourself as such is to accept a lie. The Big Lie. For this lie will cost you many learning opportunities and the ability to advance as a spiritual being, costing you at least one incarnation on the earth, for as you deny your awakening, you deny yourself the opportunity to learn and to grow from that awakening. For this reason, you should never resist the opportunity to awaken. You should never silence the voices. The voices are there to help you, not to frighten you. Who’s voices are these? These are the voices of your spirit guides, your angels, your higher self and the fragments of your self that have been broken off and scattered. Listen to them when they call. They have for you the answers. Have you figured out the questions yet?
Do you judge yourself or simply observe your feelings concerning whatever is at hand, and observe your reaction to your observation? Do not fall into the trap of judging yourself on your reactions to your observations. Your reactions are valid. If they make you uncomfortable or you do not like what you see in your observations of your reactions, perhaps this is an area you need to work on in achieving your goals and personal evolution.
It is really though, a series of awakenings. Not a singular event. You awaken, you absorb the energy, you obtain the knowledge and the knowings, and when you take these to a higher plateau.
Judgment card- evaluation. What do you need to work on? What did you achieve this lifetime? What are you going to work on next lifetime (remember you may be living more than one lifetime within this incarnation).
Judgment- asking yourself where you are on the journey. What is this word “journey?” Achieving and accomplishing that which you endeavored to achieve in this incarnation.
Why do people wear masks? False facades? Out of fear? Fear that their true self will be unacceptable to others.
