Judgement is a very misunderstood and misused function. We have a tendency to judge every thing and everyone, to continually compare ourselves, things, people and events. We seldom look for and recognize the value of what we see in our experiences, we are judging. As long as we choose to compare and judge, we are judging ourselves, comparing ourselves. There is a spiritual purpose of judgment, to judge from our experiences how we can improve, do better or different, next time. Experiences are a gift of love to give us an opportunity to get wiser and stronger from our involvement, an opportunity to fine tune and grow in conscious awareness. Here is a message from The Angels about comparing. When I’M O.K.You’re O.K.

No Need to Compete
My dear friends, we love you so very much.
Today we’d like to speak to you about competition. We are not talking about competitions set up for the sake of sport and entertainment. We are talking about the ego’s need to compete with others to feel better about yourselves.
In our reality, there is no such thing as competition. We understand that God designed the entire universe to work in cooperation. This love, this infinite intelligence is monitoring all of creation at every moment in time, fine tuning, making adjustments, and issuing new guidance in an attempt to keep creation working together in a beautifully orchestrated harmony. This is very much mirrored by the human brain that, at every moment, receives thousands of nervous signals from the body, and immediately sends out new instructions to the cells in a constant attempt to keep the body in harmonious balance and order.
However, in the human mind competition stems from a feeling of disconnection from Divine love. If you knew how deeply you are all equally loved and guided you would never need to worry about what anyone else on earth is doing! You would not have to compete in business. You would not have to compete for relationships, for attention, for money, or for love in any form. You would feel constantly connected to, and informed by the source of all love. In this reality there is enough money, enough love, enough attention for everyone. In this reality you simply have to be the best possible version of yourself that you can be. There would be no need to compete and no need to be “better” than anyone else, because in truth you are all equal. The ant on the sidewalk and the most brilliant human thinker are made of the same substance – Divine love. They have different functions but they are equally important in the greater scheme of creation.
So dear ones, in practical terms, next time you feel the need to be better, prettier, smarter, more financially abundant, etc., than anyone else, stop yourselves. Tell yourselves, “I simply want to be the best me I can be.” Allow others to be role models if you like, but strive to be true to yourself. What delights you? Do it to the best of your ability. How do you like to adorn yourself? That is pretty/handsome enough. Who cares if you keep up with the neighbors or if your ex has more money than you.
We know you you really are and so we see you all as equal… no matter what. You are all fashioned from the love and light of God, no less. You are all in different forms – an ocean of love poured into different pitchers and glasses, but nonetheless an ocean of love. Release the need for any sort of competition or comparison with others. You are all perfect as is, even as you expand into a greater awareness of who you really are.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
