Sun in Gemini on the Jupiter – Saturn Midpoint
It’s easy to judge others.
Just get up and make either a glowing or condemnatory appraisal on someone based on something personal.
Target something like their political or religious views, or their cultural background, or their level of education. Or maybe make a statement about their fashion sense, or their economic worth, or their level of competency at something. Or maybe make your judgement purely on something they cannot ever change, like their gender, age, size, shape, colour…
Easy to judge others.
Just stand somewhere and pick on a characteristic that you see is different in someone, then imbue a whole sense of ‘self versus not-self’ values into your statement.
Makes you feel good, don’t it?
Makes you feel ‘better’ almost instantly when you find something in others that you can either endorse or denounce.
In the world of judgement, people are either good/bad, right/wrong, pretty/ugly, smart/dumb, rich/poor… etc…
And how good too that the world is abundantly rich with folks to judge?
An endless supply of feel-goodness to feed off all over our three-dimensional world – these days, we only need to look as far as our TV news to source our insatiable hunger for an ever-bloating, self-serving sense of pious morality – the ability to engage into the growing steam of indignation and righteousness that seems to be becoming a global pandemic.
Yet, how many of us are capable of taking the evolutionary step up onto the next dimension of consciousness and simply observe what is going on around us without passing virtue or blame upon others?
Observe yourself. Notice that in every moral breath you utter, you have the power to foul up or restore this great imbalance.
Are you willing to take some action, instead?
