I was talking to a childhood friend a while ago and we kind of catching up on what we’ve been doing and how we’ve been over the years. We’ve seen each other over the years but not really had any deep conversations. Our mothers have kept in touch and passed on bits and pieces of information, but you know how information passed on from mothers can be.
During one of our conversations this friend reminded me of something really cruel I had done back in middle school. When he told me what I did I was appalled. Really, I was shocked and somewhat disgusted. I didn’t deny doing it but I do not remember doing it. That incident is totally erased from my conscious memory. Why? Because I choose not to dwell on the past, especially the negativity of the past.
During another different conversation, my friend told me they had some type of mental breakdown. He was sure I had heard of it. I told him I had not heard of it. Looking back over time, my mom may have mentioned it to me but that is another incident I chose to let go of. I have been practicing not judging myself and not judging others for any reason whatsoever. Judgments require too much energy and are really pointless anyway. When you spend too much time judging you lose some of your freedom. I choose freedom and I love it.
I learned this from the following Related Bible Verses:
Micah 7:19 (Amplified Bible)
19He will again have compassion on us; He will subdue and tread underfoot our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
Psalm 103:12 (Amplified Bible)
12As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Philippians 4:8 (King James Version)
8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
I express appreciation to you for reading my blog from the infinite abundance that is my natural state, knowing that as I do so this expression will just expand and reflect back to me.
