Bread Crumbs from Pete’s Story Room: Remove all limiting and conflicting beliefs that keep us from being our True Selves – the selves we love to be. Number one on my hit list is value judgment. Judging ourselves and each other to be good or bad, right or wrong, and enforcing it with the shame of guilt and the fear of punishment locks us inside a small, dark box of thought and feeling, action and reaction. Based upon the assumption that we’re both bad and unable to control ourselves without supervision, this belief system not only invites us to be bad and do bad things when we think we can get away with it, it forces us to spy on each other to maintain our advantage and control. How irritating and oppressive! How can we be happy if who we are and what we do is never good enough?
So, we want to outgrow this archaic and oppressive belief system of judgment, comparison, and competition for survival. What can we replace it with? What will work best and make us happiest? What is it going to take for us to make the jump from a value judgment worldview that tells us we’re bad and controls us from the outside in, to a value fulfillment world that tells us we’re good and that we can control ourselves from the inside out by always doing the best we can with what we know and learning more to do better? With this one small shift in perspective, we can change the direction in which we are currently moving. We can create a future worth living. What do you think? Can we let love and understanding be the light and our way instead of fear and denial? Sure we can!
