If we judge ourselves as not good enough, or unworthy then we will also doubt ourselves. If we doubt ourselves we’ll doubt everyone including God, because all is One. We even doubt Universal Law – which IS God. The Law is an expression of Love. When we doubt God/Love then we feel lost and alone, confused and afraid. It’s a domino effect.

Judgement = feeling lost and alone, confused and afraid

One thing I get to learn and that I find SO beneficial is the less I judge,and the more I choose Love the more I can ALLOW myself to receive the flow of Divine Goodness that is ALWAYS overflowing through my life.

It’s like my heart is a container.
I’m designed to be the perfect giver and receiver of Love.
I’m designed to allow the fullness of God’s bounty to be experienced in my life.
If I choose to fill my heart and mind with thoughts of judgment, lack and attack, limitation and separation, then my heart will FEEL full of muck and mire. My life will FEEL like quicksand one minute and a whirlpool the next.

When our heart is pure, loving, kind, generous and patient, then, in a sense, it’s empty, it’s available for the fullness of God’s Love to work through that open heart. This is the sweet emptiness that the Buddhists are always talking about.

If we’re not holding onto resentment, regret, guilt, blame and shame then we can be in that lovely emptiness and experience the free flow of Love in our life. Then, our natural joy and luminosity can be revealed and expressed through us.

If you feel full of something that doesn’t feel good, give it away to your own Higher Holy Spirit Self. Use this practice from A Course in Miracles, page 90 in the Text, Chapter 6, Section VII, Paragraph 6 – If you’re feeling upset – say this to yourself:

I must have decided wrongly, because I am not at peace.
I made the decision myself, but I can also decide otherwise.
I want to decide otherwise, because I want to be at peace.
I do not feel guilty, because the Holy Spirit will undo all the
consequences of my wrong decision if I will let Him.

I choose to let Him, by allowing Him to decide for God for me.

For me, I use this shorthand – I say to the Higher Holy Spirit Self –

I’m not interested in this thought anymore.
Please take it out of my mind so I never experience it again and please do the same for anyone else who has this thought and is willing to let it go.
I AM a creature of Love and light and that’s all I’m interested in.

In this week’s class at Living A Course in Miracles there was such clarity. A lot of people are really getting it. We are emptying our hearts of everything that is unwanted by giving it away. You can do this. All that is required is the decision and the willingness. The heavy lifting WILL be done for you. The HOW is being revealed.
