We are all here to live every situation you can imagine, good or bad; right or wrong; positive or negative. Why? So we can learn from the experience as part of the adventure of life. Murray Kibblewhite
CASE STUDY – Non-Judgemental Justice
It has been said that we are not a body with a mind attached, but a mind or soul in a body. And the mind or soul has two level, one called the conscious mind which lives through your five senses and shows as your personality. The other is the creative mind (previously called the sub-conscious mind). This mind never sleeps and is responsible for all your involuntary life functions such as your heartbeat, your breathing, your digestive system and your creativity.
In his book, “The Seat of The Soul”, author Gary Zukav on page 42 says: –
“Every experience and every interaction provide you with an opportunity to look from the point of view of your soul or from the point of view of your personality.”
What he is saying is that every event in your life, good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative can be viewed from a duality point of view, which is how the personality considers others, or from a non-judgemental viewpoint of your soul.
For example, if a child dies early in its life we cannot judge the event as we do not know what healing was served by the experience. Maybe the event was to allow the parents to experience grief.
Or, another example, in the case of a person begging in the street, we should not judge as we do not know what is being completed for that soul. In this case, the person could be experiencing humility.
The approach to all events is to be non-judgemental and compassionate. Zukav calls this approach “non-judgemental justice”.
In his eyes, “non-judgemental justice is the freedom of seeing what you see and experiencing what you experience without responding negatively.”
For many, this type of thinking or lack of action is too hard to believe, let alone accept. But it is worth the effort to replace fear and doubt with love and acceptance.
Non-judgemental justice is another term for treating every experience as a learning experience
All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what are the real lessons to be learned?
