Where does this root come from?
Where does this root of judgement grow from?
This judgment; the self judgement and this judgment of others, always comes from the same place that all of these issues come from, and that is the lack of self-love.
That is the soil from which all of these roots grow from.
That is the soil that we are going to till up and fertilize so that only happy little flowers of self-love grow, instead of the roots of these painful emotions, like judgement.
When you turn that judgement on yourself, when you look at your own ‘faults’ or when you look at the things about yourself
‘I have hair on my arms, that's disgusting. My voice sounds weird. That's horrible.’
When you make these judgments about yourself and assign an emotional reaction to them, now you can become self-destructive with them.
Now you will start beating yourself up with them.
Now that vine of self-destruction and self judgement will start wrapping around your heart and you will start to self-sabotage based on these judgments.
You may not even realize that that's where they're coming from.
Where do we learn this self-judgment?
Where does it come from?
Sometimes, it's because we overheard someone say something, once.
Sometimes, it's because of the judgement of other people.
Many times we create a false belief based on what somebody else said. We overheard someone say something about our hair or say something about our attitude, and so we decided ‘Well that must be the truth. They said it. They said that about me, so it must be true.’
We then internalize that as our ‘Truth.’
We find evidence in our everyday life that supports that ‘Truth’
‘Well, that person's looking at me funny. They must be looking at my funny hair. That person just reacted to me in a strange way. It must be my attitude. See that person was right when they said I have a weird attitude. See, those people were right when they said my hair looks funny.’
We need to learn, we need to discover the source, so we can rip out the root of these vines, which crawl into every moment of our lives.
We give so much credence to the judgements of others and so much credence and weight to our own judgements and superiority over other people.
What we learn when we dig down into the roots of this judgment, is that it all stems from the lack of love for our self.
When we can truly love ourselves and accept ourselves exactly as we are, we can disregard the judgement of others.
Truly about 90% of what other people have to say about you is garbage, that should be thrown away.
When we can truly disregard the judgement of others, and rely on our own truthful honest assessment and love ourselves; despite any issues that we come across during that assessment--and in fact love ourselves because of any issues that we come across during an assessment-- that is when we will be able to rip out the roots of both internal and external judgement and clip away the vines that strangle our hearts.
