What old patterns are you stuck in today?

“If we refuse to go into those old grooves of self-loathing or self-criticism today, there is no telling what new concepts can be born in each of us. . . Change judgment to a loving, tolerant thought. . . and the world is changed.”

How much criticism do you create?

Good Morning

It is a beautiful morning once again!  The flowers are in full bloom, the birds are singing, the bees are buzzing, and everything is so alive and vibrant!

Today:

I will enjoy the world around me and be aware of when I am being critical and what my criticism creates in my world!

Good Morning

What are you critical of today and what does it create?

Peace, love, light and blessings

ANOTHER THOUGHT FOR TODAY

 
Native Wisdom April 8-Don’t be subdued with criticism<br />Why judge yourself by what someone else is saying? They only know what they think. Can we fit our lives into the narrow confines of theirs? We can search our own souls. And most likely, we will find that we have connections uniquely our own-deeper in many ways than those with whom we would like to be in accord. But there's no way we can whip ourselves into being like someone else. We can only make ourselves better. Regardless of how we have been conditioned to think, we know right from wrong. It is innate and speaks loud enough that if we want to hear it, we will. The only thing that keeps us from hearing is the clamor of voices outside ourselves-and they have no other purpose but to destroy. Don't dally with trouble. Refuse to be a part of anything you would not look at in the light. </p><p> Each man is good in His sight. It is not necessary for eagles to be crows. Tȟatȟáŋka Íyotake

THE MAN, THE BOY AND THE DONKEY

A man and his son headed to market with their donkey. A man on a horse passed them and asked, “Why aren’t you riding your donkey?”

The man placed his son on the donkey, and they continued on their way. They passed by a family working in their fields. A young girl said. “Look at that lazy boy riding while his father is walking.”

The man told his son to get off the donkey, and he climbed on. They passed a group of women and one said, “What a selfish man, making his son walk while he rides.”

The man asked his son to climb up on the donkey with him. They passed a traveler on the road, who said, “That poor donkey is carrying too much weight.”

Not knowing what to do, the man and his son began to carry the donkey. But the donkey kicked so violently they released their hold and the donkey ran away.

The Moral of the story: In striving to please everyone, you end up pleasing no one.

Striving to be a people-pleaser can make you feel as if what you are doing is never right, and you lose your ability to make your own decision.

I will choose to do what is right for me.

~Start doing …for ME!!!!…~

ARE CRITICISM AND JUDGEMENT THE SAME THING?

Criticism is born in insecurity!

When you are secure within you dear ones, all from outside of you is, as it needs to be from outside of you. When you are inside of you, peace, prosperity and truthfulness is the reward and with the reward comes the acceptance needed to allow others their right to be on their journey through life. Criticism is a menial form of judgment. When you criticize others, you are simply saying, Why aren’t you me, I would do it this way, my way is right, yours is wrong and it leads directly into the polarity which exists on earth plane today. Criticism allows you to sit in judgment of others, and it is through this judgment that control is born. Control is an exercise, which comes from the outside of each human who is not being. As you recognize that you are criticizing others, you will know that within you, you are criticizing you and your own personal way of living your life. If you are not integrated with your inside you will sit in judgment of you from the outside, when you are criticizing you from what you perceive to be the inside of you, know that you are locked into the confines of the brain, you hold the key to move through self criticism by accessing your mind and inner being where you will find the wealth of knowledge and wisdom that you possess which is unique only to you. When you are a human being you there is no need for criticism from within and will not have to do without.

Judgment is the ultimate form of control that exists on earth plane today!

Whether this judgement is you judging yourself, or whether you are judging another, it is a form of control which is an indication that you are into your brain and are comparing who you are, what you do, and who you should be through the eyes of outside of your being. When you are judging others from outside, you are really judging yourself from outside through parochial thinking and indoctrinated beliefs about you. It was written at one time “Judge you not that you judge yourself”, and with judgement you are really saying that I can judge you because I am you or I want to be you.

What happens when you judge and criticize others, or when  someone else judges and criticizes you?  Only you know the answer!

Peace, love, light and blessings!.
