As many clients I work with will have experienced, I often throw certain words that have huge negative connotations out of the window.
One word that is thrown out often is 'failure.'
Lets imagine that this word does not exist. How would it be to imagine instead that we simply have a range of different experiences with different outcomes?
What a relief!
Practicing this way of viewing life experience allows us to let go of our conditioned ways of thinking and feelings such as shame, guilt and fear and moves us towards inner freedom..
Judgement of ourselves and others ultimately leads to a sense of separateness and shows us just how much we are not accepting of ourselves. Ultimately it is a reflection of what we believe it is ok and not ok to be. This can lead to feeling anxious and fearful, especially in uncertain times.
The way out of judgement is to recognise that at a spiritual level, we are all the same thing. Try to look for similarities in others rather than differences, recognise that whatever you think or feel is ok. It's how you choose to respond and act that is your ultimate gift. Being human is not always having thoughts and feelings that are fluffy and light! What you experience in your inner world is your gift for learning and growing. Be you x
