Judge Not, Lest Ye Not Be Judged

We’ve all heard the famous statement in the Bible saying, “Judge not, lest ye not be judged.” (Matthew 7:1)
Great, but what does that really mean, especially to those of us who don’t speak Shakespearean? I recently listened to Bashar explain this statement and it was truly an eye-opening experience so I’d like to share this realization with you all now.
It seems that the above statement regarding judgment has been misinterpreted by people over time, something very common (and actually almost unavoidable) when people try to understand something that someone who’s coming from a much higher level of consciousness has said. In the process there’s been some information that was, shall we say, lost in translation.
There’s the myth that God is basically a human ego, just a larger and more powerful one, an angry and jealous God who judges all others.
Chances are if you’re reading this site, the idea that God is a spiteful, angry, and jealous God feels a little off and you’re open to something else. With that, let’s take a look at the statement, “judge not, lest ye not be judged” from a higher perspective.
First off, in this physical reality, YOU are the Creator of your reality. YOU.
(We can get into the discussion that from yet a higher perspective, there really is no individual doer, and really what’s going on is that while yes there is certainly creation happening, there actually is no separate individual to create, but that’s another topic entirely. Either way, you get the point.)
Secondly, there really is no external reality outside of your awareness. It’s all in your imagination. If you think about it, you can’t even prove than anything or anyone actually exists given that everything in physical reality could all just be in your imagination and part of some elaborate dream. Nevertheless, you can still have an exciting experience in this dream world.
See, our physical reality only exists when we focus our awareness upon it. It is through the principle of focused awareness that manifestation occurs.
Third, there is NOTHING other than YOU in the Universe. You are everything. You are the Infinite. You are All That Is, expressing itself as an individual, yet in your mind you perceive all these separate beings which really, truly, in essence are YOU.
The separateness “out there” is all a dream that you’re perceiving “in here.”
So whenever you are looking at something in the “external world” and create any sort of emotional response to it, it is truly YOU who is being affected.
When you judge another, it is YOU who is sitting in the vibration of that which you judge.
Now, “Judge not, lest ye not be judged” has nothing to do with being judged by someone or something outside yourself, including God. That’s not the true meaning of this message.
You see, as you negatively judge something, as you devalue it, you yourself take on the vibration of that judgment, of that devaluation!
From a vibrational standpoint, you CAN NOT perceive that which you are not a vibration match to. It’s like trying to see white through rose-colored glasses. It is literally impossible. Your entire physical reality is simply an illusory perception and what you perceive is determined by your frequency of vibration.
So if you are perceiving something as valueless, you have to be in a place of valuelessness to declare something else as valueless, you see? You have to devalue yourself and bring yourself down to that same level in order to judge something else as valueless.
Do you recognize how that statement, “Judge not, lest ye not be judged” is not a threat or form of punishment? It’s a simple way to say that you will experience the energy of whatever you put out, something people like to refer to as The Law of Attraction, or even Karma.
What you put out is what you get back.
It’s as simple as that.
The great thing about this understanding is that it works from the other direction just as well!
Since “you” are at the direct experiential effect of your own states of being, you can choose to simply love everyone and everything UNCONDITIONALLY. No matter what. In every situation. At all times.
My beloved, Love and ye shall be Loved.
Yet another great thing that happens is that when you choose to give up all of your judgments in the first place, you don’t actually have to force yourself to be Loving. You see, Love is your true nature, and when you stop buying into your own judgments (which are all lies anyways, good or bad), you’ll tap into a much deeper and more profound realization of your true nature. This is automatic and applies to everyone, including you!
Judgment is essentially superimposing a sense of value onto what is, saying this is more worthy or valuable than that for whatever reason.
By letting go of judgment, everything becomes equally valuable, infinitely valuable.
You then have the option of choosing based upon preference. You can prefer vanilla over chocolate without devaluing chocolate, you see?
Instead of bringing your own frequency of vibration down by vibrating with that which you feel is of little to no value, you make the neutral observation that something is more harmoniously in vibration with your true, essential, core being, and thus you expand to become “more of yourself” in physical reality.
(Note: I had originally misquoted that “judge not” passage above saying “Judge not, lest ye be judged” instead of the accurate quote as “Judge not, let ye not be judged.” My shakespearean is a little rusty and I thought lest meant “or else,” rather than its true meaning which is closer to “for fear that.” I’ve edited this post to make the fix, but the message of the post remains the same. )
