Like a Paradigm. One Shift at a Time.

Updated on July 26, 2016

There’s nothing wrong with you. Well, except the belief that there’s something wrong with you. And as you’ve accepted this belief, you've subsequently taught others to hold this as a belief too, as only your conviction shapes your non-reality, yet seemingly real dream of reality.

Now you’re just a bunch of perceived sinners who have chosen to think there’s something wrong with you, simultaneously denying the possibility that there is actually nothing wrong with you. You then go on to strengthen this misbelief in others, as to solidify an illusion that, if abandoned, would fall away, just as the illusion that it is. Yet for now, everyone thinks that there’s something wrong with them, and with everyone else.

How’s that working out for you? A world of imperfect people, looking over the perfection in everything and everyone, and focusing instead upon the imperfection of all. Wow! How upside down of you! How pathetic to continue using your free will to choose a belief which does not suit you, define you, but instead, ultimately destroys you.

If you don’t go within, you go without. This planet is a picture of what you will find outside of you. To change the picture, you must tune to something greater which is inside of you. Until you do this, the picture will remain. The picture you’ve painted of imperfection grows to murals of hate, condemnation, greed, and everything else that stems from your first misperception of lack. It has all grown from that first misperception of your imperfection. That first projection of imperfection in others.

Change just this one belief, and you can change the world. See not the world through the eyes of the ego you have made, but of the Spirit which you are. See yourself through the eyes of the very Love which created you, and you will see yourself as you have always been, will always remain, and truly are forever. See yourself through the eyes of your Creator, and perception will be no more. All that will be left to see is the very perfection that you have denied by your decision to believe otherwise. All that will be left is reality. The only reality. Reality which has had no real re-awakening on a grander scale as of yet.

The world is calling for recognition. To recognize one’s self is to ‘re- cognize’. Cognize is to know. To recognize is to know again. This is the hint that you have forgotten who you are. That’s why you don’t recognize yourself in others, and so you condemn them. You don’t recognize yourself, so you condemn yourself. And why should you recognize yourself? How could you possibly remember the perfection that created you in It’s likeness, when you’ve spent your whole life trying to teach and convince yourself that you are not what you are? Then finally you convince yourself that your maker is similar to you in your ignorance and likeness.

To those who say “no one is perfect”, let me ask you something. What do you think the world would look like if we sought out the perfection in others instead of their imperfection? What would it look like if we gave ourselves and each other a break from this old perspective of judgment?

I’m not asking anyone to change their mind. I’m asking everyone to open their hearts to the consideration of possibilities that may have been overlooked or that we have chosen to deny. I’m asking that forgiveness be considered before condemnation, and for condemnation to be considered a result of misperception.

Remember who you are. Only then will you be able to see others truly. Changing the world is an inside job, and we're all on duty. Like a paradigm... one shift at a time.

      Thank you for your comment Dr CHE Sadaphal. I appreciate the supportive verse in validation. :D

      As for the tone, I would like to peacefully apologize for any confusion, and to clarify that I have not found myself to be the 'victim' of any religious folks. I do however, believe that one's choice to perceive one's self as victimized is of the same misperception which leads to the same illusion which one perceives another as being worthy of condemnation. Victims find value in condemnation. I find no value in being either.

      I wish you well also, and sincerely appreciate your time, attention, and consideration in your comment. You are honestly appreciated!!!

      Mercy triumphs over judgement (James 2:13). So, your petition that "forgiveness be considered before condemnation" finds validation in the Bible.

      From the tone of your hub, I get the gist that you have been the victim of some "religious" folks. The good news is, at least from the standpoint of Christianity, that all those other people will not have any say in your eternal fate. Only Christ is able to do that.

      I wish you well.
