To Judge or Discern

Are they different or the same?

This question was posed by a dear friend of Loving Reminders.

When we think with the mind of humanity, what we see is duality.
Black and white, right and wrong, good and evil, better or worse.
When we think with the mind of God, what we see is unity.
Love is real. Oneness, Wholeness and Beauty live in the hearts of all creation.

The difficulty with our minds is that We think.
Worldly thoughts are often not of Good, but rather defending against bad.
Our thoughts create what we think about.
When we are thinking about what we want and what we don’t want, we have both.
Whether we are judging what is right and wrong or discerning what we prefer, we participate in the manifestion of both.
When we try to think positive, we are usually thinking how we can avoid the negative.
You see what we perceive we strengthen.
What we believe, we will see.
What we agree on (wherever two or more), there we make manifest.
What we feel, we make real.
What we judge we continue to see.
What we discern might be seen as what we are willing to see in order to judge.

How can we judge anything when we are making up what we see?
You make up what you see by the words you use and the meaning you give to those words.

The bottom line is seek first what is Good and Whole and Beautiful.
See first what is Good and Holy and Loving.
Focus on what you really choose to be your reality.
What you give energy to, you will increase.
Give energy and focus, love and gratitude, to what is Good for All.
Listen within and KNOW.

Loving you,
Betty Lue
