Be Fueled with Kindness — It’s Not Combustible

by Rev. Vicki Evans, Ordained Ministerial Counselor

During a phase of peace, I asked Holy Spirit to join me to help me remember that I am Love, not a judge sputtering out assumptions. Whenever I start to judge others or judge a situation, I remind myself that I really don’t know, I only think it! I am now making it a habit to start my assumptions and judgment statements with “I think”…… which tells me: “I imagine…. which then leads to: It’s not real; I don’t know!”

I now practice adding the prefix words of “I think” or “I imagine” attached to my judgment sentence or thought and replace this thought with a self-question of, “Do I know this for a fact?” If not, move on, let judgment thoughts go and evaporate into the air. I am taking this activity a step further by replacing any judgment thoughts or false assumptions with a kind thought for the person or situation I started to judge or thinking a self-mantra of “I really don’t know — no false assumption!”

Pathways of Light teaches that peace comes to me if judgment is traded in for connections to others as we are all Love.

I want to create a world that I want to live in as I realized that when I stop judging others and writing a script for them, I open a lock that has been keeping me away from connections. The stance of not knowing can be a powerful peace and kindness creator. If I don’t know the person or the situation, I am practicing using the mantra of “assume the best.”

When I went into peace and joined with Holy Spirit, I practiced an activity where any negative statements that float by in my mind are breathed in as I physically take a deep breath. Then I breathe out, transforming the negative judgment statement out with a physical breath out and a visualization of sparkling confetti.

Now these judgments have no power over me as I can bring those thoughts in with a breath and release them immediately with visualizations of specks of confetti that remind me of scattering Love and oneness to all I encounter in my day.

A further visual came to me that transforms the confetti into specks of light that can spread out as lighted fireflies that reinforces the connectedness that I strive for in my relationships!

I also felt enlightened when I realized that when I share my judgments and false assumptions with others, I am giving them a life of their own. When I give these impulse reactions a life, they grow into a big gray cloud mass that blocks the light that I want to always be in my life.

I take a step back and offer myself a new perspective so that impulse judgments will extinguish. I remind myself to move in another direction!

Go towards the Holy Spirit and keep the Light. Don’t incite — pass the Light, not the fire! Be the channel of Light and peace! I now visualize myself fueled with kindness – it’s not combustible!
