Non-judgement

Do not judge a book by its cover dear ones, and never judge the soul you see in front of you based on his or her circumstances, appearance, or demeanor. For you never truly know a person unless you have walked in their shoes, or listened to their life's story. Each person you encounter on your path, whether you like them or not is worthy of your respect, for each person is a soul, incarnate upon the earth attempting to learn about love - love of self, love of others, and love of God. And dear ones, it takes courage to come to earth, so treat each other with kindness. You do not have to choose to remain around anyone if you don't want to be there. You do not have to change anyone. You only have to listen to yourself, speak your truth with love and kindness, and be clear about whom you wish to be around and whom you do not.

There is a vast difference between judgment and discernment. It would be our wish that you would never judge another soul. Judgment says, "This person has no right to be as they are." Discernment says, "This is not right for me." And so dear friends, by all means, discern who you wish to be around, but try your best not to judge, for every soul here upon the earth is doing the best they can, with what they were given, in that given moment.

Most importantly, do not judge yourselves, for each one of you is truly doing your best as well. You are learning, growing, and constantly expanding into greater love dear friends. You all occasionally behave in ways you are not proud of. Far better to say, "Ok I've learned," than to beat yourselves up or uselessly shame yourselves. You are perfect in God's eyes. You are students of the Divine. You are learning to be who you truly are. And if you make a so-called mistake in this school dear friends, you will not be punished, shamed, or made to feel inadequate... instead you will simply be sent more love and encouragement for in the heavens we know how difficult this school called earth can be and we love and support you in every moment of every day.

So, this week, choose to be kind to yourselves, nonjudgmental towards self and others, and see if that doesn't lighten up your hearts just a tiny bit more.
