The Difference Between Preference and Judgement
I recently had an experience where I was judged based on someone else’s preference.
The situation went like this, “Do you think this person is pretty?” I didn’t agree with that persons preference but did not shame them for believing or feeling the way they did about the other persons beauty. Moments later, I was being attacked for being, “untrustworthy,” and a ton of other things that simply aren’t who I am or what I stand for in my life. This situation, even though it occurred months ago, prompted me to share this piece with you all today.
Preference: A greater liking for one alternative over another or others.
Judgement: The ability to make considered decisions or come to sensible conclusions; a misfortune or calamity view as a divine punishment.
In no way, shape or form is it okay to put others down based on your own preferences. We are all entitled to like what we like, and dislike what we wish to dislike. There is a difference between preference and judgement. What occurred during my conversation that day was judgement. To be a person who is deeply rooted spiritual practices, promoting others individuality, and respecting where they are on their journeys (regardless of my beliefs), I am baffled when others that I thought we on the same level of self-realization attack me like this. Today, please allow this intention to infuse your being. Allow these words to become a new practice for you and enjoy the amazing results you receive.
"We envision us living in a world where everyone sees everyone else in their highest light, where everyone sees the Godspark in everyone else; and where everyone holds a vision in their minds of everyone else living their lives happily, healthfully, freely, abundantly, and fulfilled in every way.
We imagine us living in a world where people everywhere now understand the difference between our preferences and our judgments; where we understand that each has their preferences (I like chocolate - you like vanilla), but that it does not serve us whatsoever to judge another (because they might like vanilla and you don't care for it). We see them in their highest light, regardless of all their predilections, proclivities, and preferences.
And now that we are seeing each other in the highest light, it's easy for us to take the next step and see our entire world in its highest light, and we hold that vision - knowing that our thoughts are creating our future - until we are experiencing it all around us."
Indeed, we have created an amazing, extraordinary new world for ourselves simply by enough of us holding the thought of it in its highest light.”
