Last night in our women’s spiritual group, we were exploring how judgment and comparison create blocks to awareness and progressive growth of the Soul. These are generally learned and are not a natural part of beingness, so we can learn to release the judging and comparing habits that cloud our perceptions of what’s real. They are fear-based and produce beliefs in duality – you’re separate from me and I’m certainly not a part of you, etc. In a consciousness of non-duality, we know we are a part of everything and everyone everywhere. Our group loves to close our circle by honoring each other with a Mayan blessing: “Inlakesh”, which means “I am another you, and you are another me.” This blessing is powerful if used regularly because it releases the sense of separation and draws us into knowing and feeling the Spirit that resides within all.
