The Pitfalls Of Ego…

One of the biggest ego issues so many people are still struggling with is judgement. I’m not totally sure how we all got so hooked by judgement, but it is one of the more serious issues we need to tend to. If you are one of the people just waking up and hearing about going within and clearing stuff out, put judgement at the top of your list. It has gotten us in more trouble and led us so far astray from where we should be. It’s strange, if you think about it for a minute, how in heaven’s name did we become comfortable with judging those around us? What a terrible thing it is to do! It creates that Holier Than Thou attitude and walls us off even further from the world. It is easy to slip into and unless you have trained yourself to watch your words and thoughts , you may not even know you are doing it. Beware!

Judgement is at the heart of most of today’s struggles in the world, especially the problems festering between countries. That feeling of being better than and looking down upon someone or something. We get set in our ways and before you know it we think everybody else around us should be doing things the way we do or else something is wrong with them. Countries see themselves as superior to other countries and try to force them to do things a certain way instead of letting them do things the way they choose to do. It creates a bully and pushy attitude that encroaches on other people’s lives. It creates anger and fighting and mistrust and unfortunately, it eventually creates war.

It causes bad feelings within as well. The more you judge the more you alienate yourselves from others, you no longer feel comfortable around people, you feel different than, less than or more than, nothing is just right with your world. What a horrible way to live. You hurt and wound others and you don’t even realize what you are doing to your self in the end. If you can’t accept those around you for the way they are, your world shrinks and you find yourself having fewer people to interact with comfortably. It creates loneliness and separation. Imagine how big the world would become to you if there were no limitations, no walls going up, you were able to accept everyone and every thing, and you felt comfortable in your life. That is truly going with the flow.

So if you want to work on things within yourself to become a better person, zero in on judgement and become mindful of how you go about your day everyday. The same with our word and our thoughts. Remain mindful of them as well. It takes some discipline at first and a willingness to pay close attention to your behavior, but after a short while the process becomes second nature to you and you just do it without even thinking about it. If you want to change and become a better person you will find the incentive to do it and keep up with it and soon your life will begin to turn around. Give it a try to find peace within. The world around you may still be out of whack, but you will have changed, you can feel good about yourself and the energy you exude to others around you will encourage them to do the same thing. We are changing quickly now, join in and make a difference in the world.

Blessings to us all,

    What wonderful comments above!! Great post VK!
    Perception… now that is the kicker. We each have our own. Our own reality. And I so agree with Eileen re: awake and not awake. Judgmental and presumptuous to be sure. And the next time I see my daughter throwing the lights and the darks together in the wash… I will just smile
    have a wonderful weekend
    Much LOVE to ALL here.

      Hey there Girl….Good to see you. Happy weekend. Hope all is well your way. We didn’t end up getting much snow( 6+inches). We ended up sandwiched in between storms to the North and South. Lucky us. The wind was wicked and just about blew me over when I tried to go out to get more wood though. So glad we didn’t get socked in. Hope you got some snow there to enjoy. Love and hugs…VK

    Love this blog, and many of the comments. Wonderfully thought provoking.

    I have always believed to assume is to make an ass.. of… u …and… me!

  3. Now this is an interesting post, VK. I don’t like to think of myself as judgmental… but I am! I so am! I like to feel good most (all) of the time, and try to avoid things (people) that don’t make me feel as good… and that’s where the judgments kick in. Bang! Right between the eyes. Now that I’m aware, I need to be more aware. I’ll get this sorted, you know! Fabulous post once again, VK!

    • Visionkeeper says:

      Thanks T….You’ll do it because you are so willing to work on yourself. That is the first hurdle so many must get past and often don’t…Be kind to yourself and just keep going forward gently but steadily. You are doing really well my friend!!! Thanks T and I send you Blessings…. VK

      • William says:

        YES TOM! Big Courage to own it. Denial of it would keep it in place, your
        time in space will be more productive after such an honest admission. Ho!
        Will I am

  4. William says:

    Greetings VK! The issue with judgement is more insidious than it appears.
    It goes to the core of our very beliefs….Our deepest held beliefs are really
    judgements we made before we had all the INFORMation. Perhaps that is
    why many are so resistant to learning new information that painfully challenges
    the illusion to which they have given their power to.
    Will I am

    • Visionkeeper says:

      Well said Will I am….It seems to be the last thing we let go of…It’s a tough one to release but if we wish to be a part of 5D it is a must…At least we are aware and are now able to work on it….Good to see you my friend….Blessings…..VK

    β€œThis being human is a guest house. Every morning is a new arrival. A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor…Welcome and entertain them all. Treat each guest honorably. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.”
    ― Rumi

    • Eileen says:

      Oh .. what a fantastic quote! I love this! So often I feel this way … every feeling is valid, a teacher, a guest and so we invite the guest in … have a cuppa and a chat … see what we can learn.
      I most especially like `meet them at the door laughing’ – fabulous!
      Thanks for posting this!

    • Visionkeeper says:

      Thanks Lunachick….Great quote…Rumi was such a special soul indeed, such depth and truth within his words. Blessings to you for this gift. VK

      • lunachick47 says:

        ~Blessings~ to you VK for offering a flash o light(I literally was picturing a flashlight when I wanted to thank you,lol)
        Expressing the words has been interesting b/c so much is based on feeling. My mind comes in and tries to filter things and I prefer to keep it simple!!
        So yeah, Rumi’s words have really been resonating with me recently.
        This is only part of the poem, the rest can be found at
        Which I thought was hilarious cause those words have been popping up left and right. Who knew there was a website?
        Beautiful blessings everywhere..

    • Visionkeeper says:

      Flashlight πŸ™‚ lol personified! Thanks for the link to the whole thing. Appreciate that. There is a great deal of synchronicity going on right now, especially words! Enjoy the journey…Thanks again…VK

    Thank you VK.

    I created a chart to illustrate different perspectives between awake people [the new Human aware of the truth of our origin] and unaware people still evolving out of a dream about what we are not. It’s available free at my website.

    New Human Perspective = I stop judging you

    Evolving Human = I forgive you

    When we remember that the Oneness reveals ItSelf as eyes that see, ears that hear, hands that touch, and hearts that feel through every human there is nothing to forgive. Human ‘inner space’ is truly the next frontier.

    • Visionkeeper says:

      Thanks Doreen…I’ll check it out! yes it is the next frontier…so much to explore ahead of us. Thanks again…VK

    Judgment really is a tough one. This is something which has come up for me lately … and it is also a case of having no idea what may be going on for another person when we make assumptions which can really only be based on our own experience. So … yep .. I put my hand up to say that this can be a tricky one which can sneak up occasionally. Also discernment and choice can sometimes venture into the realms of judgment too making it a sneaky energy which can sometimes turn up when we are almost unawares at first … until we feel that unmistakable energy of separation … and then it is caught in the flood lights… so to speak .. and shown the door. Sometimes judgement sneaks in while the bouncers are having a sneaky fag break. πŸ˜‰
    Timely post VK. Thank you.
    Love & hugs

    • Visionkeeper says:

      Hey E…. You used a word which I find so at the heart of judgement as well as other pitfalls. ” Assumption” !!! Assuming anything gets us into so much trouble and aids us in our judgements. These are definitely tough issues to get a handle on but we must! I too have moments of slipping into judgement. Most all of us do I think. At least we are aware of it and are working on it. You can’t ask for much more than that!! Thanks E…VK xxxooo

      • Eileen says:

        Yes … assumption … `A thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof’ … mm…
        Also judgement is involved whenever we separate stuff … like doing the washing … sorting the `lights’ from the `darks’. πŸ˜‰ And … also it can be seen whenever terms such as those who are `awake’ and those who are not crops up … because that in itself is a judgment…. another form of separation. Yes … as you say judgement is a tough one … and we need to also be careful not to judge ourselves if we make the odd slip up.
