Moving Past the Judgment

2664d0e2789d58be9784c145b6b47963It is in our nature to judge others, we do it naturally, judging someone else’s behavior, actions, motives or past. It is a biological need to do this because it will help protect you from harmful situations and people and of course this is important to your survival.

It really jumps out at you when you observe people being judgmental about the behavior of others. It seems that today the judgments of others are high and the reactions to others are based on  blind judgment and hate, it stands out and makes you wonder why it is that way. When you judge someone else in this manner you define yourself, not them. I think it is important to remember this.

Dark Side

darkness vs lightHow often do you really look at yourself in the mirror? Not just how your hair looks, or to shave or do some other habit of grooming, but look yourself in the eye and really see who is looking back.  This is a daunting thing to do because you just may see something you didn’t expect, darkness.

Equal Parts are There

All people contain within themselves the ability to love deeply, show compassion, help their mlkfellow-man and give completely to virtual strangers.  There is also the capacity to be petty, mean-spirited, selfish, and discriminatory without too much coaxing.

I Am Me, I Have No Choice

Why Are You, You?

by Jonathan Hilton  Day 48

Today when I think about myself, I do not feel all that much different from the person I was at younger moments of my life.  Yet I know that when I look in the mirror, that person has seen some things. I have to wonder what exactly makes me me?

I think that it is kind of mind boggling to think that of all of the billions and billions of people that have ever existed in the history of the earth, that there has never before been anyone who is exactly like me.

How You Carry Your Light

When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?

Are Your Ideas In the Darkness?

by Jonathan Hilton

There are times in everyone’s life when they feel like they are all by themselves, with only your beliefs.  These times are opportunities to define your life and what you believe in. Will you continue to believe as you always have or will you move in the direction of change and growth? That is a test that life likes to give us from time to time and it is important that we find the lesson and maintain our humanity and compassion in the process. There is no question that difficult times will define you and lead you in a direction of more understanding or more bitterness, the decision is truly yours.
