Judgement

by Rebecca Marina

Divine Mother:
People are reacting in various ways to this turmoil...the most detrimental of ways is to slip into judgement.

Judgement causes self-righteousness which always leads to BLAME...and as you may already know...BLAME will ALWAYS keep you stuck!

Judgement of others who do not believe as you do. (You have NO WAY to see into their hearts as we do)

Judgement of those who are perpetrating violence. Instead send angelic forces of Light to those areas and to those people.

When Dark chaos energies are stirring up trouble, YOUR thoughts of judgement only stir up more. You cannot fight hate with more hate. You can dissipate hatred with Angelic Forces of God's Pure Light.

Judgement of those who have hurt you (this is very difficult I know). Allow yourself to HAVE the feelings of hurt or anger but only for a short season. Ask for God’s help to see the lesson and ...gulp, thank the teacher! (Energetically of course)

Divine Mother Continues:
When you are in trouble...open the eyes of your heart and ask...Am I sitting in judgement?

Am I blaming others somehow?

And please understand this message is only to help you be aware that old judgements MAY have crept back in due to these unique circumstances.

And….BE the thing you are seeking.

Are you seeking more love? Be more loving.

Are you seeking more abundance? Be generous with what you have. It need not be money (unless guided)

The most precious gift you can give anyone is the Gift of being an UPLIFTER to them.

Please, Please, Please, if you find yourself a wee bit guilty-feeling over this...forgive yourself and start over.

I have it on VERY GOOD authority that your society will be ‘over the hump’ soon. This has been a time of great transition. Humanity is realizing what is REALLY important.

Keep the faith, you are not alone, we are always with you.

And remember, Your angels are just waiting to be of assistance to you. Nothing is too small to ask and be thankful for.

“All Beings of Light are seeking a RELATIONSHIP with you. A two-way relationship as with a friend. NOT a relationship with you lower than a worm on the floor... begging for grace.

A relationship where you realize your own spiritual authority and that YOU have something to give ANY Being of Light. Your awareness, your love,your service to humanity.

And let us not forget the message of Thoth on self-judgement.

When you beat yourself to pieces for judging you are missing the point. Just notice it, ask for help and forgive yourself. Ask your angels to help you be aware of when you are in judgement of yourself or others.

What must we ruminate on as we recount the numerous pilgrimages each one of us have undertaken?

You go from place to place, like postal parcels, collecting impressions on the outer wrapper, not on the core of your being.

A blind man going places is not worried whether it is night or day. So too, you do not differentiate between one place and another.

You behave equally unconcerned, equally senses-centred, in all types of places. You do not allow the holiness of the place to act on your mind.

As a result of pilgrimages, your habits must change for the better, your outlook must widen, and your inward look must become deeper and become more-steady.

You must realise the Omnipresence of the Divine, and Oneness of Humanity.

You must learn tolerance and patience, charity and service.

After the pilgrimage is over, sitting in your own home, you must ruminate over your experiences and determine to seek the higher, richer and more real experience of Divine-realisation.

- Divine Discourse, Feb 28, 1964.

People may say that pilgrimages are a waste of time and money, but it is the best way to spend time and money, provided one has real devotion.

Creating Enlightenment

“Enlightenment” isn’t a permanent state but the dynamic back-and-forth that we create with our intrinsic wisdom.

What is the hallmark of righteous living?

Dharma says Speak the truth and practise righteousness.

There is no better stabilising factor in society, no more support for individual progress than Satya, Truth.

Hiding the truth or perverting it or denying it or defacing it are all signs of cowardice; no bold person will stoop to cover the face of Truth.

Besides, you must know that the Scriptures injunction is: Practise Dharma.

It is not enough if you learn about it; you must act it, fill every moment with word, deed and thought that reflect your awareness of Dharma.

That type of living is the hallmark of what is called character in statements such as "Character is the most precious jewel."

You must examine every moment of your waking time to check if you are observing the precepts of Dharma or straying away!

- Divine Discourse, Apr 15, 1964.

There is no greater spiritual practice than adhering to the principles of truth and love.

Make Meaning from Chores

If I view [everyday chores] as tasks to rush through on the way to something more important, they become a crushing waste of time.

But from the perspective of Buddhist teachings, each of these activities is a golden moment, an opportunity for full awakening.

Why should we make an attempt to learn, understand and follow the scriptural injunctions?

Every single thing has its Dharma.

Water has as its Dharma, the nature and obligation to move.

Fire, the Dharma to burn and consume.

And the magnet, to attract and draw unto itself.

Every one of these is keeping up its Dharma unchanged, including the Solar system and the stars of the firmament.

Among the things endowed with Consciousness - the plants and trees, the insects and the birds, born out of eggs or the mammals - all have managed to treasure their specific Dharmas unaffected through the passage of time.

But the human being, whose intelligence sweeps from the inert and the infinitesimal to the Super-conscious and the Universal, is the only living thing that has slipped, and is sliding down.

The experience of many generations of seekers, who sought the means of contentment and joy, embodied in the precepts of practical living collectively called Scriptures is neglected, and new-fangled nostrums are recommended and tried on a vast scale.

- Divine Discourse, Apr 15, 1964.

Adore all religions; they are all pathways to the one Divine.

Transforming Others

Ordinary people just want life to be smooth, without problems.

But Buddhist practitioners have a different attitude. They are ready to endure many difficulties if they are in the service of transforming others.

Why should we be ever vigilant against our inner temptations?

The temptation to ignore Dharma grows from egoism and the acceptance of false values.

The wish to satisfy lower desires is the root of Unrighteousness.

This wish takes hold of you slyly, silently, like a thief in the night; or like a comrade come to save you; or like a servant come to attend on you; or, like a counsellor come to warn you.

Oh, wickedness has a thousand tricks to capture your heart.

You must be ever alert against the temptation. The wish makes a chink in your consciousness, enters and establishes itself and then multiplies its brood and eats into the personality you have built up with laborious care.

The fort is no longer under your control. You have been reduced into a puppet manipulated by these inner enemies.

Whenever you try to rebuild yourselves, they undermine the structure and you have to do it all over again. That is the extent of the harm they do!

- Divine Discourse, Apr 15, 1964.

Our deeds reveal our motives, our motives design our habits, our habits decide our character,
and our character determines our destination.

Focus on Joy

Even though it may seem counterintuitive, when you’re suffering, if you can focus on another person’s joy, you can share it and that makes you feel better.

Why should we know about our own Self?

It is a hard job to know about your own Self.

Take the case of the food that you eat with your own mouth. You feel it in your stomach but after that you do not experience what happens to it at each stage.

How then can you know, without acquiring the special means for it, the Truth that lies behind the sheaths that encase and enclose you - the sheaths of material, vital energy, mind, intelligence and bliss?

Clear your intellect or intellectual power of the cobwebs of the ego, the dust of desire, the soot of greed and envy, and it becomes a fit instrument for revealing the Inner Truth.

"Know yourself, know the Inner Motivator” - that is the exhortation of the scriptures of all faiths.

For, unless you are armed with that knowledge, you are like a ship without a compass, sailing on a stormy sea.

- Divine Discourse, Apr 16, 1964.

Do not go on adding to the things which bind you to them. Bind yourself to the great liberator, the Divine.
