JESUS HAS THE ANSWER
Dear child, you see the world colored through your own heart, and so the secret to becoming immune to the judgments of others can be found in changing that heart.
When you learn to completely love that which you fear you will be judged for, you release yourself from the prison of fear. In the case where you have fallen in some kind of arbitrary status, make a point to love others in a similar situation. When you buy your food, consider the cashier: Notice her nobility and attention to excellence. When you trundle into work, notice the janitor: Reflect on how much goodness it takes to clean up after others’ messes. Open your heart to all those who don’t always command respect and send them feelings of love and admiration.
As this opening of your heart becomes a habit, you’ll feel as though you’re a world away from any who might judge you. Indeed, as your heart expands, it brings you into the aspect of your Father’s kingdom that’s in your midst. The sneers of others will seem a million miles away. Your heart will be so open, you may find that you see past their faults to their need to be admired, and compassion will take the place of defensiveness.
Come to Me in prayer now and feel the Holy Spirit lift your spirit and bring you the strength and joy you need to expand your loving heart into your Father’s dimension.
“The kingdom of God is not coming in ways that can be observed…for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you.” —Jesus to the Pharisees,
