For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you." (Matthew 7:2) (1 min 40 sec)


    1. The mirror of judgment.

    When we judge others, we are really judging ourselves. Our judgments arise from the guilt and fear in our own minds, which we then project outward onto others.
    Jesus is telling us that the standard by which we judge will be applied to us as well. If we are harsh and unforgiving in our assessments of others, that same harshness will be reflected back to us, perpetuating a cycle of condemnation and suffering.
    The Way of Forgiveness
    Judgment is an illusion because what we believe happened never did. The way to break free from this cycle is through forgiveness - letting go of our grievances and seeing past the illusion of differences. 
    When we forgive others, we release ourselves from the prison of judgment. We recognize that what we perceive as flaws and sins in another are merely mistaken projections of the guilt in our own minds. Through forgiveness, we undo the ego's belief in condemnation and remember our true Self as spirit, united with God's love.
    Jesus is guiding us to look at judgment with compassion. If we choose to see others through the lens of attack, that same judgment will cloud our own perception. But if we choose forgiveness, we will experience the miracle of seeing only love and innocence everywhere.
    I am sorry.
    Please forgive me.
    Thank you.
    I love you.
