I want to share a remarkably timely piece of writing that arrived on my screen yesterday. Something that responds to the question I headed this with. In fact, an extremely vital piece of truth for this moment. It's titled...
Every Other Beating Heart
and in the mode of its originating source, it was Heavenletter #4379, November 20, 2012.
All on Earth want to be the best they can be and do their best. Even those who may steal want to be good at stealing. Even so, taking is where the one who steals is. He sees it as necessary, or, he may even see it as his right.
He is not where you are, so be glad you are where you are and know that . . . the one who does less than what your righteous self allows is on his path, not yours.
Every person on Earth is doing the best he can. He has chosen the best he can. He has free will just as you do. No one on Earth can say how the thief serves or doesn’t serve and what he is worth. I am giving you a lesson on non-judgment. The one you judge may not judge you at all. In that way, he may well be ahead of you!
I am not suggesting that anyone steal from another. I am suggesting that you are better than you know, and you are better than to lock others into your judgment of them.
You know, it has been said that lions are the king of beasts. It is the world of men that gives titles like that. The king of, alas, beasts. Each dear animal on Earth is as he can only be. The lion is as he is. The fox is as he is. The kitten is as he is. Neither the lion nor the fox nor the kitten classify one another. One dog may be dominant over another, yet that is an ordering of nature and not judgment. Each unto his nature.
The beings on Earth with the highest potential of all are human beings. The irony. The highest of all -- alone -- judge, and judge others as wanting.
It will benefit you to be humble before all beings, animal and mineral. You are not superior, better and so forth. I did not make My beloved animals and stones for nothing. I made them for something. And what I have made is not for you to feel superior to. Where is the love in that?
I made you of love, so be it. Be love and not a judge.
