Yes, #LA - this is for you, too. The LA stereotype is true for sure, that you’re only judged and recognized for what you look like. Yet, with any imbalance the pendulum swings the other way! Many rich pockets of authentic community have popped up in LA as a result of the deficit prior to, but the cliche is still valid in general.
I saw an overweight man pushing himself in a wheelchair today. He had long, straggly hair. Instantly I pictured him as the guy taking selfies of his 6-pack abs for social media - knowing very well that anyone can be that with certain lifestyle habits. How, then, did he get where he is, I wondered. I sincerely wanted to know. My soul recognized his soul and the limitless potential available to all soul outlets.
Because I am this way by nature and early development, I find it shallow and limiting when I witness someone being judged for a moment in time, a number on a scale, an unedited photo, or even worse by untrue gossip. What stops you from taking that moment to recognize another soul, as it is, whether he/she can do something for you or not? Ask yourself with each person you encounter, am I seeing their soul or judging what brand of shoes they’re wearing (or not) - and how that can help me feel better about myself.
I can walk with a homeless man and never fear how others will judge my status, and I can fly in private planes and know that it will never separate me from humanity.
Me: Why are you looking at me like that?
Lucy: You’re eating a chocolate chip cookie.
Lucy: You said you’d give me a cookie.
Me: I did.
Lucy: You gave me an oatmeal raisin.
Lucy: You’re a cookie monster.
Society keeps on judging
We keep on receiving
The hate we never deserved
Turns us completely reserved
We'll never fit their image
It'll never be our time
And when it's about to finish
It begins again
Like an endless rhyme.
There's 6 #storms headed to #America right now. Never in history has 6 storms gravitated toward an area like it has.
Most will think this is #Haarp and the #Government and its attempts to depopulizing the country, but will never accept the fact that #judgment is coming to this #country .
Habakkuk 2:12 KJVS
Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and stablisheth a city by iniquity!
Do you think this country can be built off the back of slaves who were murdered, stolen from their own land, raped, pillaged, babies fed to gators for sport, given no retribution while your cities were built off the backs of our murdered ancestors? You keep wondering why this sudden change in this country is happening?
Here's why..... Deuteronomy 32:41-42 KJVS
If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.  I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
Judgment is coming. Don't cry now because you've lived lavishly through the stolen bloodshed lands passed down from your forefathers. How did you think this was gonna end? You better ask #TheMostHigh for forgiveness, start obeying His law including honoring His #Sabbath , giving #alms to those nations your #forefathers stole from and live a #righteous life.
Hey, do what you want. I've read what happens to you and what you need to do to avoid total destruction in the #scriptures . Your choice.
PARABLE OF THE SOILS
What I glean from the teachg was that we need to understd a few things b4hand abt the #ParableOfTheSoils :
1. The sower is any1 who preach/teach the #WordOfGod . In this #parable , the prob is not the #SOWER . This holds true as long as the sower is teachg the truth fr the #Scripture as written n not teachg a false gospel in order to tickle the ears of his listeners.
2. The prob is not the #SEED . The seed grew in most situations. In addition the same seed is used in all soils. The Word of God never changes n is perfect the way it is. There is no need to alter the seed.
3. The prob in most cases is the #condition of the #SOIL . In a parallel passage in Matt13, the soil is refer to as the #heart (v19). The condition of one's heart wl determine how much #fruit wl be born.
The church today generally speakg does not understd this. It thinks that the prob can't really be the condition of the hearers' heart n hence it must be a prob with the sower or the seed. The sowers need to be able to relate with our culture today, they say. They can't be out of touch n they need to know how to "sell it". They also need to connect with our modern society. Then we need to fix the seed. It can't be offensive or else we won't fill our #churches n #megachurches . Dun mention #hell , #damnation , #judgment or #repentance . We need to talk abt #financialgain , earthly desires n felt needs. By fixing the sower n the seed, the true gospel is no longer the #gospel n the lost can no longer be #saved . Only one of these 4 soils actually bore fruit. What is the significance of that? Altho the #Superficial n #Worldly "believers" rcvd the Word there's no fruit. They started down the path to #eternallife but the Superficial "believer" had no root, there's no depth to their #faith n the Worldly " #believer " allowed d things of this world to choke out d good seed. The Worldly "believer" tried to serve two #Masters but found out they cld not. Only the #Receptive soil bore much fruit. This is d heart that the #HolySpirit had prep to recv the Word n it's d only heart that's genuinely #saved . It really sets our eyes where it oughta be: Wat's the condition of our heart? #Mark4#sosassembly
"You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire." - Matthew 5:21-22
Do you think anyone can live up to this standard and never sin, even in thought? If we can't, then how can our good works possibly save us?
Forgiveness and letting go is vital, also forgiving yourself. Sometimes you won’t see what’s coming and to love and trust others is admirable. Building better boundaries and meeting your own needs before others is paramount.
Oh yes, I've been a judgmental asshole many times on my spiritual awakening journey.
How about you?
Those who deny their own imperfections are often the most judgmental folks out there.
I've been slapped by life enough times to know better.
Practicing non-judgment is a daily affair...
Not some trophy I set on a shelf.
So... check yourself...
Dial it down.
We're all human, mkay?
I just made a video about "Awakening Judgment"...

BE YOUR ONLY JUDGE.
Take two minutes right now.
Sit or stand
Close your eyes
As soon as a voice in your head starts up, name it.
Give it an identity
Make it into a character
Is it a parent?
Is it a childhood friend?
Is it your sense of authority, or fear, or guilt, shame, anger, love?
Whose voice is it, *really*?
Give that character entrance to a room deep in your mind
made of stone,
one room with one large round table. They don’t sit, they just get in.
Do this a few times
With the next few voices that show up.
Sit at that table, and one by one,
Ask each character
what they’re trying to tell you.
When they stop talking (they will)
One by one.
The voices that feel like good counsel — invite them to sit.
The voices that don’t
Ask them to leave.
You’re gonna learn in that moment
How to LEAD YOUR OWN LIFE.
You and only you are in charge in there.
You are stronger than them.
They’re only there bc you allow it.
And you can stop allowing it.
Don’t expect leadership to be EASY.
Know that you can do this.
You can determine the state of your internal union or discord.
You are the leader of your
Sit at your inner circle table
with ONLY those you wish.
Investment — Care more about your well-being
than their judgement.

Tired of trying to FIT IN? 🙌🏽 Then this post is for you my love. Continue reading.
The reality is, many of us actually tries to ‘fit in’
Trying to FIT IN may come from:
-Wanting to be accepted
-Wanting to belong
-Fear of being judged
-Fear of being rejected
So you try to fit in wherever it feels like you have to. You get the job everyone approves of. You are saying YES when you would rather say NO. You spend time with people you do not feel good around. You are as good as 'you're supposed to be'.
You have tried all masks but it seems like nothing is good enough. Through all these efforts you still feel like you are not good enough.
You are sick of TRYING TO FIT IN? You just want to belong.. Belong the way you truly are..
Trying to fit in will not make you feel like you belong. Because trying to fit in is far away from who you truly are.
Belonging is about inhabiting the REAL YOU. ⠀⠀
Trying to fit in stops you from being YOURSELF. FROM BEING REAL.
Stop this race of trying to FIT IN and inhabit the REAL YOU.
I will share some quick tips to implement that hopefully can help you!!
⠀⠀ 1. Stop trying to force yourself into someone's skin. BE YOU. This is what people really appreciate to see.
⠀⠀ 2. Be the person that you enjoy being!! Then you will belong where you are meant to belong!
⠀⠀ 3. Stop trying to FIT IN where you are not allowed to fulfil your own desires.
⠀⠀ 4. Follow your dreams. Your own dreams. Not someone's else. In this way you can actualize your potential.
⠀⠀ 5. Forget the "COOL PEOPLE" and find your kind of people that you feel really connected with.
⠀⠀ 6. Do not let imaginary standards to measure where you are in your life. Follow your own path.
⠀⠀ 7. Make it your Mantra: "I am beyond GOOD ENOUGH. I deserve to be me. Now and always. I belong to me and I choose to inhabit the REAL ME.’
Note it down to yourself. Use it as your tool kit anytime you feel like you’re breaking and trying to fit in again.
Be YOURSELF! You’re much more than good enough.
⭐️ A little more kindness a little less judgment🌸 Zij is lelijk, jeetje wat is zij dik, kijk die manke daar lopen ziet er niet uit en ga zo maar door. Oordelen...Mensen doen het tegenwoordig heel makkelijk over iemand. Maar besef je eigenlijk wel wat je over iemand zegt die je helemaal niet kent of wat hun achtergrond/historie is. Dat dikke meisje heeft het misschien wel moeilijk thuis waardoor ze haar emoties weg eet. Of die “manke” man die aan het revalideren is van een zwaar ongeluk. Iemand die houd van een bepaalde levensstijl wat voor de “normale” mens dus ongewoon is, wie ben jij om daar over te oordelen?? Nu ik zelf in wedstrijd voorbereiding ben merk ik om me heen dat mensen ook over mij oordelen. Waarom ik überhaupt mee doe aan een wedstrijd, want ik heb te weinig massa, het figuur en de looks er niet voor. Maar weten jullie wel waarom ik hier aan mee wil doen? Niet om te winnen hoor en verder in deze sport te gaan. Ik doe mee voor mezelf!! Het is voor mij al een hele overwinning om hier aan mee te doen als je kijkt waar ik vandaan kom gezien mijn geschiedenis. Ik ben 45 kilo te zwaar geweest omdat ik dat “ lelijke, dikke” meisje was die al haar emoties weg at. Ik na me uitzending in 2016, twee jaar een burn-out heb gehad en het even niet meer zag zitten en met mezelf in de knoop zat.
Maar ik ben door gegaan en kom van ver,doe dit voor mezelf en heb misschien stiekem al voor mezelf gewonnen. Ik ga die dag shinen, mijn beste shape neerzetten en vooral genieten. En als ik daarna in het vliegtuig zit naar Australië dan kan ik tegen mezelf zeggen dat ik dit geflikt hebt!!! Dus oordeel niet te snel over iemand als je zijn of haar verhaal niet kent.. laterrrr haters 🙋🏽♀️ #mylife#oordelen#judgment#kindness#beyourself#competition#bikinicompetition#fit#fitness#health#healthy#mind#positive#motivation#redhair#red#blue#blueeyes#people#inked#ink#inspiration#inspiratie#beworthit
We often get caught up worrying about the approval of those around us. It’s easy to assume that we’re acting too “awkward,” or that the people we are talking to secretly dislike us, writes Marisa Franco, Ph.D., in her post “Science Says People Like You More Than You Know.” Such negative thoughts might distort our view of reality. “The sense that we are disliked can feel so real,” she notes, “and yet, research assures us that this sense is often inaccurate.” #judgment#psychology#perception#reality#approval
