In our basic state of awareness we idolize the body. We believe the body and brain are what we are. We believe they are real. We think we must honour our bodies and feed our minds. We desire beauty and youthfulness and the creature comforts for our body and strive to have a sense of security for our body and brain. We judge based on these things. We attack by oppressing people’s bodies and thinking. Through judgment and attack we harm everyone, including ourselves and our loved ones.
At some point we become aware that we are more, we hope there is more, and then we actively strive to understand that we are more. From this perspective we start to see that what we think and do affects others. We try to love and forgive and we discover that that gives us a degree of peace. We believe the body and brain house the spirit and so we must take care of them and be kind and respectful and caring towards others. In this phase the body is still center stage and it now has a spirit.
The next phase we move into is when we recognize spirit and put spirit at the center of our lives. We now identify ourselves as spirit and body-identification falls away. We begin to recognize that we don’t just influence each other, we are one. Everything we do and think is done to the entire unity, the entire oneness.
In practical terms, for where we are now, this is asking us to recognize that every single judgment we make is a judgment of ourselves. So when you find yourself judging others or judging objects or other creatures look into yourself to find the source. What you are judging outwardly is something you dislike about yourself. This is true in all cases whether you recognize it or not. Take a good look at yourself. Is what you dislike something that family, friends, or society has labeled as not good? Sometimes what we see as our greatest faults are really characteristics that the world needs. What if the things that annoy you most about yourself are actually your greatest assets. An example from myself is that I am very intense, forceful, and dynamic, some would even say pushy at times. But those very qualities push my clients to move forward on their spiritual journey. Those qualities in me are what gets things done and when used properly and respectfully are really gifts.
Whether you want to effect change in your life or in the world it is the same thing. There are no degrees of difficulty. It is all the same. To effect change you must literally accept yourself and change what you want changed in yourself first.
