goldfish2psdAre you free of judgment, fear, and resistance?  I first heard the maxim “Judge Not, Fear Not, Resist Not” during my practitioner and advanced teacher training with Linda Howe, founder of The Center for Akashic Studies, and love it as a way to check my alignment pulse.

Judge Not.  Negative judgment allows you to push away people, experiences, and yourself.  Even categorizing something as good separates you from living fully since if everything can be judged as “good” in the moment, it means “bad” lurks just around the corner.  A reality charged with evaluations can interfere with your forward momentum if you become focused on how to preserve the good and avoid the bad rather than living experiences as they come.  So how do you move from judgment to acceptance without falling into the trap of judging your judging?  See if you can get your head around the idea nothing requires a label of good or bad, even judging.  It is what it is, no more or less.  Less charge on something means less struggle and easier release.

Fear Not.  Fear projects you into a non-existent future.  To quickly arrest fear, tune into now.  Still breathing?  Have enough food?  What about a place to sleep?  Your thoughts create most of your fear and you decide whether to believe your thoughts or not.  Trust your inhale and exhale more than your thoughts.

Resist Not.  Without judgment or fear, what is there to resist?  Surrender lets you off the hook.  You didn’t create this universe nor do you maintain it, somehow it just keeps running regardless of what you do or don’t do.  You don’t have to flail around fighting reality.

How’s your acceptance, courage, and surrender these days?  I invite you to share a success story or to publicly declare your intention to release something (or everything!) you judge, fear, or resist.

  1. Hi Christy,
    Another thought-provoking post!
    The following sentence jumped out at me–A reality charged with evaluations can interfere with your forward momentum if you become focused on how to preserve the good and avoid the bad rather than living experiences as they come.
    That is my m.o. so to speak. Preserving the good and hoping that the bad will never happen. I can see how that would interfere with any forward movement.

    • Hi Joanne,
      Thanks as always for your great comment and on-going interest. I’m so glad my posts provoke thoughts. I find us as a species quite fascinating. Of course we want to preserve the good but we seem to forget everything morphs regardless of whether we try to prevent it or not! Hmm, perhaps a shift to “relish the good while inviting the even better?”
      Love it,
      Christy
