Hi Robin and friends, Last week on the Thursday call I asked You a question and I remember you invited me to view my choices and experiences as LEARNING instead of judging them as right and wrong. I have thought about this over and over and I am split in comprehension of this topic. In one regard I feel and see the wisdom of viewing myself compassionately and nonjudgmentally and to simply view everything as learning instead of right and wrong. The things I’m struggling with though is that there IS Right choices and wrong choices... and I also recognize there are choices that are inconsequential for example choosing between eating an apple or an orange. I think I can feel the value of viewing my experiences and noticing how I feel in reaction to it like being rude to someone and I notice I feel sad and guilty afterwards. I wonder though if there is a difference between judging (observing/ analyzing) and condemning and beating myself up? I think I feel better about accepting and acknowledging there are right and wrong choices and principles AND also see them as learning and growing. In the scriptures there is so much teaching about repentance and good and evil. If I do not accept something I do as wrong then I will not change or grow? So if I focus on repenting and changing with hope, self love, love for God and an open mind to grow and change then that is different than trying to change by condemning myself. I hope my thoughts and questions make sense?
