Not even Einstein could calculate all the potentialities necessary to make a true judgment. “One would have to be fully aware of an inconceivably wide range of things; past, present and to come. One would have to recognize in advance all the effects of his judgments on everyone and everything involved in them in any way. And one would have to be certain there is no distortion in his perception so that his judgment would be wholly fair to everyone on whom it rests now and in the future.” M.P-II.10.3.
Okay, now that we’ve agreed that we don’t belong in the same universe as judgment, let’s figure out how to stop doing it anyway. Practice on your biggest button. Mine is the human suffering of preventable war. Last night I heard that more veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan have taken their own lives here at home than have died in combat. That’s over 7 thousand? Some have been redeployed 3 or 4 times despite post-traumatic stress disorder. Over 120 thousand soldiers came home missing a limb. My reaction is that I would hate to be George W. at my light review: the Last Judgment of self on self.
I don’t mean to make light of other people’s suffering, which is why my ego can use this particular illusion against me. So even though on the surface it seems trite, the only way I can handle what appears to happen in this world is to say, “You’re not really there.” I’m not even here. Thank God this is a nightmare, and I’m really only looking at the ego. David Hawkins (and many of my Facebook friends) will remind me, “There is no future to fear, nor past to regret. There is no errant ego/self to admonish or correct. There is nothing that needs changing or improving. There is no ‘other’ from which one can be separated.”
So no matter which stance I take–this is real and it’s terrible, or this is false and my projections are terrible–only the Holy Spirit can see what is needed for the “future.” Only Holy Spirit can use a mess to make a miracle. “God’s Judgment is the gift of the Correction He bestowed on all your errors, freeing you from them, and all effects they ever seemed to have.” That would be the only solution, wouldn’t it? For God to free me from everything I see or project, to free everyone I see or project. All that is really “happening” is a lack of Love. “Be not afraid of love. For it alone can heal all sorrow, wipe away all tears, and gently waken from his dream of pain the Son whom God acknowledges as His.” We do not know, and we cannot judge. If what I see is how I would have things be? Judgment is better left up to God. Lesson 311.
