Thankfully, I've learned how to recognize which I'm operating from. It was almost too simple when I realized it but, as most of you are aware, sometimes the simplest things can be the most profound.
When I'm judging a situation or an individual's actions I actually feel a physical sensation. It's a discomfort that I feel in the lower Chakras. It's a vibration that I am not comfortable with. It's like my soul is saying 'Let's not go there'. Usually, as soon as I admit to myself that I am in judgement, the feeling fades.
Simply observing the situation or action is much more pleasant for me. I can look at a situation and not feel attached to what is going on or what the outcome will be. I am able to step out of the drama and simply allow things to unfold as they will. There is no good or bad; no right or wrong. It is what it is.
I've also learned that when I am judging someone or something I lose the ability to be of service to the person or event.
But when I'm simply observing, magic can happen. I receive guidance as to whether to walk away or offer assistance. Whether the situation is a lesson for me or someone else. And I gain the ability to 'think with my heart' and 'feel with my brain'.
My intent is to observe rather than judge. I have a sense it will make existence much more pleasant.
