This week’s Beyond the Chakras Oracle Card is taken from the “Emotional Chakra”. We are reminded:
"On your journey through life strive to live without judgment of yourself and others. It is through non-judgment that you will discover true compassion.”
Oh, how easy it is to see the faults of others, point them out and perhaps even say to yourself, “Boy, I am glad I am not like THAT!” Well, you better pull your horns in mister! Usually the flaws we see in others, those annoying habits, those actions or comments are mirrored images of what we do not like about ourselves. Before passing judgment on someone, ask yourself if you really know the whole story behind their words or actions. It is easy to say what you would do if you were them…because you are not.
Everyone has a story. No one knows what chapter or even what page the other is on…sometimes we are confused about our own life story so how can we fully understand someone elses? Instead, understand that each of us is doing the best we can at this moment in time. We cannot change the past or be too attached to the future for if we do, we lose sight of the now.
Life is so much less effort if we simply “be” and let other people do the same. Instead of standing back and judging find ways to be compassionate, caring and loving.
