One word—judgment

I read Your mind. Hm…Meaning of judgment. Several meanings, actually.

Tell Me the one that shouts at you.

Okay. Judgment—”the forming of an opinion, estimate, notion, or conclusion, as from circumstances presented to the mind.” Sample sentence—Our judgment as to the cause of his failure must rest on the evidence.

Key words are “forming of an opinion as from circumstances presented to the mind.” Now, do you see the word “soul” anywhere in that. Or in the definition?

No.

Exactly.

Exactly? I don’t see “exactly” anywhere either.

Precisely.

Oh man. Can we please cut to the chase? None of this running around the bush.

Yes. All those involved with the case will be running around the bush chasing evidence about what exactly happened unless all those involved forget about “the opinion as formed from circumstances that were presented to the mind.”

Oh-kay. So what should they do instead?

I have no idea.

What?! You must have some idea! You’re God!

All of you create your realities. And whatever you create has an effect. A consequence. I Am not a God who has control of your realities.

So what You’re saying is—we are responsible for the consequences of our actions.

Yes.

That’s it? That’s all You’re going to contribute to an issue that may go on forever?

It won’t go on forever. Tell Me, child, what do you want Me to do?

I don’t know. People are praying and praying about this. About giving strength to the victim and his family about justice being served and the perpetrators being punished and all that.

All of you are Gods. You are My little Gods. All of you have bodies, minds and soul. They are My gifts to you in order for Me to experience Myself through you. And yet you have abused your own divinity by always ignoring the desires of your soul. Does the soul desire to punish? Your soul is Me. I Am love. I Am joy. Do I desire to punish? Whatever you have done wrong as perceived in your world, do I teach you a lesson by punishing you so that you will not do it again? Or so that another will cower away in fear and refrain from doing wrong as well? Will the wrong-doing stop? Will you stop punishing?

Um…Too many questions…

No. The answer to all those questions is no. I do not punish.

So what can we do? It seems hopeless!

It is not hopeless, my dear one. I will give you a solution after all.

Thank You! So what is it? What’s the solution?

Believe.

Here we go again. Care to expand on that?

You know exactly what I mean. Say it.

Alright. We must believe You are not a punishing God. We must believe ourselves as God. We are little Gods. And since we are little Gods, we do not punish as well. Or rather we should refrain from punishing.

Good.

No, it’s not good! You can’t just expect us to turn the other cheek with regards to the victim. He was beaten up!

Who is the victim? There are no victims in your world. Any event that happens to you was called by you in order for you to have the opportunity to experience your divinity. Turning the other cheek is not the same as being indifferent. Indifference is apathy. Apathy is unconcern for the welfare of others.

Then what does turning the other cheek mean exactly?

What happens when you turn the other cheek? Literally.

Well, it means I turn my face to the left or to the right.

When you do that, can you still see the other person?

Not fully, no.

Do you turn the body as well?

Um…No. Usually just the head. I don’t…

You don’t. You stay put. You do not fully acknowledge the perpetrator and what he has done but you are not running away. You stay in the situation because you are defending your divinity. You turn your eyes away from the perpetrator in order to gain clarity.

How do I gain clarity if I’m not looking at him directly?

That’s when you use the eyes of your soul.

Ahh. Now we’re getting somewhere. Turning the other cheek means, I will turn away so that I do not see you physically but instead see you with the eyes of my soul. And I will not walk away because I am here to defend my divinity. And then what?

That is entirely up to you.

Oh man! We’re back to where we started!

No, we are not. We began with the word “judgment.” Tell Me your last word.

“Started”?

You know what I mean, child. Say it.

“Divinity.”

Yes. We began with the word “judgment.” And now we end with the word “divinity.”

So what’s the solution?

You have a choice. Judgment or divinity.
