Judgment and Discernment.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.



I had a question about the difference between ‘judgment’ and discernment.  I am assuming that discernment is okay if done to make a decision, whereas judgment is harmful.   What is the difference between the two and how can you tell if you are exercising a spiritually empowering process or not?



Judgment is an ego process of identifying with something by accepting or rejecting it in order to make the ego feel “right.”  Discernment is a simple evaluation by the intellect guided by the higher Self, whether an experience is beneficial or useful for you or not. It’s not a matter of being “right” it’s about being in tune with your guidance and life purpose. If you order dinner from a menu with discernment, then you select what is nourishing and appetizing for you. If it is with judgment, then you are selecting food that is “right” and avoiding what is “wrong.” Discernment is ego-neutral, and judgment is ego-engaged. There may be situation where you have long-standing conditioned reactions that involve your judgments, but you can still exercise discernment if you are still able to pay attention to the quiet reference of your silent witness and listen for your quiet guidance.
