There is no Right and Wrong in God

Judgment has been exposed to me recently as being a very ill and very ingrained condition we hold in our general way of thinking. In short, a moment stopped me in my tracks as I got to feel how evil it really is to judge another.

I realised making judgments places others into a box based on what they have done or said in relation to my own perceptions of what is right or wrong, as opposed to seeing them for who they really are.

Judgments are essentially a put down, a way of making another lesser than me for their imperfections, and holds me as being greater when I know I too can at times make the same ‘wrongs’.

Whenever we judge or hold another less, the evidence is clear, it can be felt and seen throughout our whole body.

In my case, it can be seen through my facial expressions, my smile, which is not my full smile, and through my eyes, which are guarded and not fully allowing me to see the other person in full. It is also in my posture, which I realise now is often guarded as my shoulders are rolled in, keeping my heart closed. It goes to show that judgement can never be hidden!

Yet what is interesting about judgement is that it is based entirely on a perceived ideal of what is ‘right’ and thus what must be ‘wrong’.

Without any knowing of a right way to be, there cannot be any judgement as there is nothing to base the actions of another against. They cannot be judged ‘wrong’ as they are just what they are.

What strikes me is just how many unconscious judgements we place on ourselves nearly all of the time.

All are based on a perceived notion of what is right and what is wrong, never simply based on what is true. Some examples I have noticed myself using are:

Can I say that?”

“Is this the right thing to do?”

“Is this going to break some rules if I do this?”

“What will others think if I do this?”

“I should not have said that.”

Judgement is so insidious – I know I have often found myself not enjoying situations that I otherwise would have because of the weight of such thoughts over my mood and general state of being.

My body takes on a feeling of seriousness and dullness as a result of the judgements I continue to place on myself nearly all the time.

Then I realised, there is no right and wrong in God as there simply isn’t any judgment in Him. He is pure love so how can there be any right or wrong?

I was brought up through the Catholic Church and was taught their belief of sin; that we were saved from our sins with the coming and the death of God’s Only Son Jesus (Yeshua). This teaching does not, and never did, feel true to me.

The whole idea of sin and being a sinner is based on the ideal that God judges us for what we do. God would never do this simply because He is Love, and He will always hold us in Love regardless of the behaviours we choose to live. After all how can a super loving Divine being ever cast judgement on anyone or anything if all He is, is pure love?

In God there is just the understanding of what is true and not true; it just is.

Rights and wrongs are a haggle, a debate, a justification that forms the basis of a judgment or an issue we hold about another personCrazy as it seems, without the rights and wrongs, there would simply be no judgements. For how can there be when there just is what is true and what is not?

Right and wrong are the same sides of an illusionary coin, a coin that most perceive to have them on opposite sides.

Right is not better than wrong in God’s eyes, for it is not about perfection as there is no judgment. Try to say the ‘right’ thing, and failing and judging ourselves for saying the ‘wrong’ thing, or not saying something when we should have, are examples where right and wrong never seem to get us anywhere. We can be as polite and well-mannered as possible but even then the riddle of right and wrong never seems to be mastered.

None of this exists when we speak from love and understanding and this alone proves the fact that right and wrong actually do not exist.

There is only what is true and what is not true.

If right and wrong form the basis for most of our patterns of thought, it is just as insidious as an invisible mist that pervades our sight, unbeknownst to us, blocking our clear view of truth and love.

As quick as wildfire, when I have judged myself, held myself accountable and suddenly put myself less than who I am, I have committed a perceived ‘wrong’.

Such behaviour is nothing more than rubbish, because as I am learning, it is far more loving to pick myself up, dust myself off, and lovingly learn from the lesson presented before me than it is to hold a self-imposed ideal that I am no longer ‘good enough’ because of my recently committed imperfection.

God is accessible through nothing more than a True Loving Way of being with all: a way that I am learning is clearly laid forth through our re connection with our bodies, and the letting go of the held ideals and constructs that paint God as being some other way.

He is the supreme holder of love, offering us evolution out of our patterns, issues and creations so that Humanity returns to the One Whole, the Brotherhood we originate from.

Inspiration came from Serge Benhayon to write this blog. His very livingness is the richness of God that we all once have lived, and this connection is felt in his every word and gesture. He has inspired me to reclaim my own Divinity and connection to God, the natural absoluteness I lived as a child.

  1. God is Love and loves us all for who we are and not for anything we do, be it ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in our human thinking.

  2. ‘My body takes on a feeling of seriousness and dullness as a result of the judgements I continue to place on myself nearly all the time.’ I can relate to this Joshua and it is something I need to be more aware of as these judgements holds me back from becoming the love that I am and to reflect this love in connection with others.

  3. It is awful how we impose the beliefs of right and wrong onto others and on to ourselves. Punishing ourselves for our mistakes over and over, often revisiting them to torture ourselves some more – it just isn’t worth it, and it makes no sense.

  4. When we go into judgement we put ourselves above God and what is True. Letting go of all the constructs and beliefs that have keep us trapped in old patterns is so freeing and allows for a deeper connection with God.

  5. I reckon that one of the greatest ways to dissolve judgement is to be honest about one’s own mistakes, weaknesses, and imperfections. This way we are all together, making mistakes and learning from them. With no one better or more supreme, we are all just figuring life out…

  6. By this blog I am becoming aware of how much I judge and not even been consciously aware that the way I view my everyday choices have come from a source of right and wrong.. Feeling the enormous tension from this in my body as you shared your experience. How I am left now to feel that there is another way of approaching the choices I make in my life – from more understanding and accepting – choosing to leave behind any right, wrong or good behavior or judgements.. Beautiful this is and will be.

  7. Doesn’t that make it all so simple when it boils down to – “Is it Love or not Love?” not right or wrong in sight.

  8. Serge Benhayon is the epitome of this. In the many years that I have known him I have never, ever heard him pass judgement on anything, anyone or any situation – even when we are discussing the most extreme of human behaviours because he knows that behind whatever the human expression may be at that time, is a soul of unbridled love, equal to his and equal to all of ours’.

  9. I looked at the title of this article this morning and considered further the very exposure of this blog around judgement. Even if someone uses the word ‘god’, it brings to us a view or a picture or belief towards them and colours anything they say next. It would seem we are always attempting to push others somewhere, other then simply accepting where they are no matter what. I watch things around me and how freeing it is to be ‘left alone’ to be yourself no matter what the heading. This is more and more rare in this world and I am seeing with this article that we are going against what we may now consider normal in life. As was said, no matter what the heading or the purpose, allowing yourself and others to be where they are and offering through a living inspiration another choice without judgement, is a beautiful blessing for us all.

  10. Is judgement borne from comparison and competition as we pit ourselves against one another to get ahead; I see this more acutely than ever… from the outset in maternity units around the world we start to set this up with ideals about the perfect picture of mother and baby… then in toddlers groups we judge ourselves and our children alongside others, checking the developmental markers and ‘grading’ ourselves, often harshly and competitively. This is the start of a trajectory through our education system and out into our work places and adult relationships. And as you say, Joshua this is all counter to the truth. There is no right or wrong and therefore no judgement with God.

    1. So true and amazing that it starts from T=0. I’m going to open my eyes wider to this and really commit to clocking it more; and by clocking it, it then loosens its grip on me and all of us.

  11. Right and wrong, good and bad, all go out the window when we realise that the only thing that really counts is whether or not we are being true to who we truly are.

  12. One of the greatest liberations I have ever experienced is the release of the necessity of right and wrong – a state of being that has been indoctrinated into every school child with such force. Now I simply express what I feel, without the need of anyone else to agree, or be right! It is deeply beautiful.

  13. Joshua, thanks for this blog and these lines because I often catch myself judging myself and putting my self less than who I truly am. This is something to observe in more detail.
    “As quick as wildfire, when I have judged myself, held myself accountable and suddenly put myself less than who I am, I have committed a perceived ‘wrong’.”

  14. In the beginning when I heard the saying, there is no right and wrong but only what is true, I did not know what that meant, as it was such an unfamiliar feeling in my body. I was configured by right and wrong! But when I slowly started to accept myself more and more, I am letting go more of what I judge myself is right and wrong, good or bad, and slowly I am understanding this is a process and never such a black and white situation. If in any situation I honor my feelings from the body, I am being true to myself. This is a trust and a confidence I am re-building with myself in this world.

  15. That’s just it Joshua, right and wrong just trap us, and if we in fact observe and honour that (to paraphrase) (‘it is far more loving to pick ourselves up, dust myself off, and lovingly learn from the lesson presented before us’, then we offer ourselves true healing. And there is nothing in God which condemns, so why would we condemn ourselves to the merry go round of right and wrong.

  16. Right and wrong have been so embedded in our psyche. If you think about it where did it even come from? certainly not from God. What God does offer us is an opportunity to learn and if we choose unwisely, then another opportunity is offered. We are continually being offered opportunities and if we do not take them up, we are not punished or made wrong. This is true love, where right and wrong do not exist.

  17. ‘Judgement is so insidious.’ I agree Joshua. Bringing understanding to any situation where we feel the inclination to judge makes a big difference.

  18. This blog supports my body to settle. I’ve always prided myself on not being judgmental, but your words remind me that judgment is evident in protective tactics, and I know I still use a lot of those. Thank you for so beautifully opening up this topic.

  19. When we enter into judgement we allow ourselves to live lesser lives as that is what judgement is doing. It makes us measuring our life against the ideals and beliefs we are holding which tend to be void of any truth but instead are based on right and wrong, the man-made bastardisation of truth.

  20. Right and Wrong is such a construct of the individual self which uses it as an armour to keep itself moving in false angles and thus from flowing back into the universal sea of Love.

    1. As I read your comment Lyndy I felt the difference as a vibrational movement of energy either one of discordance or harmony. Our movements in accordance with the flow love do not impose on all around us.

  21. How true is this, “What strikes me is just how many unconscious judgements we place on ourselves nearly all of the time.” These “unconscious judgements” we carry out like a blanket in our view of the world and in that they become how we see the world. Take care of these ” unconscious judgements” and your view of the world will automatically change. Use the world as a mirror and whatever is coming back to you in that reflection is the next part for you to move into or out of.

  22. Right and wrong always comes from ideals and believes that we have. Always from something we have heard, read or saw someone do and not have felt ourselves if it is true or not. We think right is how we should be but it is actually about what is true.

  23. I love the title of this blog. There is no right and wrong in God or in our one Soul. There is only right and wrong in the arrogance and pride that we do not want to let go of.

  24. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in the Body of God – only all that is true and all that is called in to resist our expression of this.

  25. When we are born there is no right and wrong, there is only truth which means to me that right and wrong are made by human to rectify and to keep ourselves in the belief that living a human life is our natural way of being while in truth this is not, as we are so much more than that and actually do not belong here.

    1. So true and “there is only truth” and all else comes after that. We hold an idea of how something needs to be for us and it grows and grows to the point where it becomes a reality or normal and yet when we hold it to truth it doesn’t step up to the mark. Our truth at any point is the marker and just as an idea grows so does the truth expand. We don’t look back from one day to the next and compare how we were, it is always just another part of an ongoing expansion where all we are is to be naturally appreciated.

      1. Indeed Ray, there is no need to look back and compare as this will never meet that what we have expanded to. We can only appreciate this fact, even if it takes us out of our comfort of having control over our lives, as when we truly surrender to the forever unfolding aspect of our being we understand that the comfort of control in life is simply a holding back of the potential we can live.

      2. Exactly and it only serves to hold us back and “control”, well said. To keep ‘on a roll’ so to speak or to stay in the true flow of life we need not “look back and compare” but more start living how you want or see things need to be now. Only when we bring forward to ourselves and appreciate all we are and how consistently does life be seen to be turning back to us in place of us walking forward to it. We only need to walk knowing and preparing for all to be unfolded back to us.

      3. I love the way this discussion expands. It shows to me that we do know so much more when we do go beyond the right and the wrong that is keeping us restricted in our thinking and does not allow us to expand to the grandness we all belong to.

      4. I agree and it shows us that all relationships are important and equal. No matter who it is or what it’s about, there are always opportunities to ‘grow’ the discussion out “to the grandness we all belong to”.

  26. Right and wrong are the antitheses of truth and love. Why would right and wrong ever be introduced into humanity as ‘principles’ to live by? We have the most amazing wisdom in truth and love and there is absolutely nothing to replace these with as foundation principles to live with.

      1. So therefore this can be a really useful marker for us. If I feel myself being ‘dogmatic’ about right or wrong or feeling confronted by someone disagreeing with me, then I know that I have slipped up and am choosing to not read the energy that is at play. ‘Right and wrong’ is an escape route out of the bigger picture.

      2. It is something we pick up or go into in order not to see. If as we are all seeing more and more, that we know everything and it is a matter of surrendering deeply to what we are truly feeling then anything we ‘go into’ would be a choice to blinker what is already there to be seen. It seems we have built life in reverse, in that we go out to get everything when in fact life flows to us and in that flow all we need do is hold surrendered to what is already unfolding before our eyes. The moment we pick up something, right, wrong etc etc we step out of flow to ensure this same pattern will need to be repeated back to us again at some point. We are so supported to see everything and only ‘we’ can put things in the way so all is not seen.

  27. Right and wrong are drawers we pull out when we haven’t gone deep enough to feel what is true or not true. Or, and possibly more precise, when we have felt something but override it with our mind and its right and wrong tick boxes.

  28. Judgement builds walls between us where they do not belong and muddies our awareness of the whole truth of a situation, which stops us from seeing the response that is genuinely needed.

    1. Yes, when we allow judgement into our lives we indeed muddy our awareness and cannot see anymore that we are much greater than that judgement make us to believe.

    2. It is what we put in the way from how we have been with ourselves over time. We allow judgement into our thoughts and critique ourselves from the inside out which then becomes like a blanket we place on the world, it becomes our view after creating it in how we see ourselves. We don’t yet fully appreciate all we are and from there all we can do. The world is only a part of who we are and from this reflection we can see ‘what is next’ for us to re-learn as all is known when we connect deeply to it.
