“You have no idea of the tremendous release and deep peace that comes from meeting yourself and your brothers totally without judgment. (T47)”
Affirmation: “meeting. . .totally without judgment”
1 – How True!
How true! We cannot even comprehend the full blessing of this passage, but we do see glimpses when we try to withhold judgment and just love. The irony is that so long as we judge, we will perceive others as judging us. This is the tenet of the Course that projection makes perception. Nowhere will we find this more evident than in both judgment and attack thoughts.
2 – Comforting Words
The words, “tremendous release” and “deep peace” are comforting in the extreme. Do we not all wish for this? Here we find out how to effect this transformation.
3 – Do Not Judge–Ever!
We must remember not to leave ourselves out of the equation. We must not judge ourselves, just as we must not judge our brothers. Frequently, we seem to have an internal judge that chastises us for misdeeds, real and imagined. These we are bade to leave behind, and we will know release and peace.
May I leave judgment behind forever. May I know the release and the joy that come from tolerance for my brothers and sisters.
May my day go well today. This will happen if I just remember to be tolerant of my brother’s perceived failings, and I open my heart to love.
