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. And this reminds me of why I decided I wanted nothing to do with religion or God as a child. Growing up with a muslim and christian influence and then later going to a catholic high school all confirmed for me that something about religion and god did feel very off. Today I have a far clearer understanding of what God actually represents in truth, which as stated here in this article is most certainly not about right and wrong, or about all the different ways one will be punished if they do not follow a certain code. It makes perfect sense that we are all equal and equally loved regardless of our choices.

    1. The many bastardisations of truth in terms of what religion and God truly are, serve to either incarcerate us into a strict dogma of beliefs or turn us well against them. The goal here being to separate humankind from their divinity and not to truly support our reconnection to it. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ in the Body of God (the Universe we all live within), there is only what is true and what is not.

    2. As we are also born from God, as we come to truly know God as love we truly then know who we are. This then gives a clearer understanding of behaviours and ways of being that don’t fit (such as judgment) and those that do, such as being loving, truthful and harmonious. The more we know God as Love the more we know ourselves.

  2. I very much relate Joshua to feeling the weight of judgemental thoughts on the body and our whole way of being, it puts us into a false configuration that dulls us and separates us further from connecting to our essence and living a true way of being with an open heart knowing we are all equal no matter how we choose to live our life.

  3. ‘Right’ and ‘wrong’ operates at so many insidious levels that we can sometimes be unaware of. It nearly always involves us having a ‘image’ of the way things should be and if that is contravened then the judgment comes in. This is the little world, the reduced world that we have constructed around us to keep us safe, but when we surrender the bigger picture (which is actually picture-less!) a whole new dimension of wisdom comes with the freedom to truly serve.

  4. I love what you have said here Joshua: ‘Right is not better than wrong in God’s eyes, for it is not about perfection as there is no judgment.’ This has been one of my greatest learnings since I came to study the Ageless Wisdom as presented by Serge Benhayon. Certainly the truth sets us all free of this imposed thought paradigm.

  5. I can feel how I have been trying to avoid mistakes and being ‘wrong’ by investing in being ‘right’ and how that causes anxiousness and is detrimental to my nervous system. And how devastating that is when I don’t get rewarded for being right!

    1. I can relate very much what you said here Fumiyo. Living a life from the outside, expecting the approval from others, pleasing, trying, doing it “better”, living under the pressure of the perfectionism…are very exhausting ways to live. Rather than simply being and hold ourselves in love, which is natural and far away from the complications that we have created measuring ourselves by the rights and wrongs.

  6. As I was reading this I was nodding off on the train, fighting and judging myself that this was wrong and trying to stay awake. So I stopped reading, stopped judging and allowed myself to feel what was going on. My body stretched and shifted position and the sleepiness vanished, all without the need to be right and the wrong allowed it to continue. When we drop the judgements on our actions or feelings we open up beyond those right and wrong boxes.

  7. Yes judgement is not pretty and harmful for all concerned. However simply and clearly expressing the true truth is loving and not judgemental. Another of the great harms of judgement is when we use it to stop people speaking the truth.

  8. Judgement exists to counter our ability to read the truth of all things and thus know that the source of all truth is the Universal wisdom – the love of God – that lives within us all.

  9. The antidote to judging ourselves and or another commences with us choosing to love and care for ourselves. As these qualities deepen within us, the need to see ourselves as right or wrong or separate from another start to fade, as we begin to feel and clearly see the deeply harming and crippling effects that judgement causes within ourselves within our society.

    1. Appreciating ourselves (knowing that we already are all what we need and more) is medicine and can be a great service to our society, reflecting that there is another way to live our lifes full of true love and compassion.

  10. Now when I become aware that I am judging another I stop as I know that this is a reflection, that on some level I have judgement towards myself which I need to uncover and discard.

    1. That’s it in a nut shell Victoria… thank you for sharing your wisdom, in future I will remember to check my level of reading, if and when I find myself judging another.

  11. ‘The whole idea of sin and being a sinner is based on the ideal that God judges us for what we do’ – which is a belief that cannot be further from the truth.

  12. Thank you Joshua, the concept of right and wrong and how beliefs, ideals, and pictures we hold of how life should be is a very interesting study. When we choose judgment of ourselves or others we miss out on the learning that observation and understanding can bring, and the love that we can hold ourselves and others in.

  13. Being right and wrong is such a set up as it positions us to hold ourselves in a constant judgement and then all others too- whether consciously or not. To see each situation as an opportunity for learning and evolving changing this as the lack of judgement allows the space to make a different choice.

    1. Being in a constant self-judgment is very exhausting as has nothing to do with who we really are. Living a life with the openess to learn in each situation really inspires me as I feel joy and a sense of space to make my life more loving. Then is when I can feel God in me, in all of us.

  14. ‘There is no right and wrong in God’ This is a very freeing Truth that gives me permission to simply be who I am, whithout efforts or restrictions.
    Human control is not needed when God’s compassion holds us in our learning.

  15. So revealing and very relatable blog about how we can measure or judge ourselves based on the beliefs and perceptions that we can have in our minds. Despite the harming impact that being under this constant self-judgment has in our body. It’s medicine simply reading this; “God 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.” Thank you Joshua.

  16. Judgements of others are a way to make ourselves feel better about ourselves and also a way we do not have to honestly look at the situation and what there is to learn.

  17. Attaching to right and wrong allows us to get off on knowing something we erroneously assume is ‘truth’ whilst at the same time avoid the responsibility of truly loving ourselves and another…in other words we get huge identification from right and wrong without having to take one bit of responsibility.

  18. Its funny reading this , as I can see where the same situation for two people , can be one man’s right and another man’s wrong depending on culture, tribal beliefs , national beliefs , and man made religious ideals and beliefs.
    It reminds me of history and what Abraham Lincoln presented not right and wrong on slavery but the truth that we all know ” all men are created equal ” as stated in the American Declaration and therefore slavery can be right and wrong , but never true.

  19. Right and wrong vs truth and not truth, what a difference. The first pair made up based on personal preferences, ideal and beliefs, the second pair being absolute based on the love that God is – truth being everything in line with God´s love, untruth everything that is not in line with God´s love.

  20. What a gift to know this at such a young age, I hope you appreciate how amazing you are to have this understanding and share it with such wisdom with the world. I certainly do.

  21. When we are in that state of judgement and holding others to ideals and beliefs that we fervently defend, we miss out on the grandness of life and what it has to offer, let alone the potential of others and ourselves -everyone looses out when we are blinded by our beliefs and pictures of how life and people should be.

  22. Joshua reading through today I really understood about the posture part and it’s relationship to being judgmental, I would say feeling judged would also relate to a certain posture as well.

    1. Hi Melinda, for sure all our thoughts will have an impact on our movements and with that on our posture. One day we will find that all our ideals and beliefs, judgements, thoughts and moods have an impact on one’s posture as it will have on people’s overall health and wellbeing.

  23. Right and wrong annihilates truth in the illusion of being righteous about one´s own version of a so-called truth. Nowhere can we be more lost than in righteousness.

  24. There is no right or wrong in the Body of God, only ‘all that is true’ and ‘all that is not’. Judgment is a thick black cloud that moves in to obscure our clear knowing of this, rendering us lost in the fog of our own reactions so as to not clearly see our way out of this forest. Furthermore, the poison of judgment sits in our bodies as we live unaware of this great toxin and the affect it is having on us all.

  25. I love what you say here Joshua. If we are judging outwardly we have already judged inwardly.” 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”.

  26. Right and wrong, good and bad make us numb for the truth we actually know; increasing levels of honesty is the antidote to the false duality until we rejoin truth through the awakened awareness again.

  27. “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’.” So well said Joshua. Judgement of another can be so harsh and creates such a disturbance between people that is ultimatley so unnesseccary. To realise that any judgement on another is first and foremost a judgement on ourselves, is the first and crucial step to changing our relationships wiht those that we judge, and how we perceive other people to be.

  28. I am grateful that I have been shown the separation that “wrong” and “right” brings, it literally breeds judgment on ourselves and others. Judgment can only come through if you are choosing to disconnect from your heart.

  29. We have judgement in our lives and create judgement in our society because we have walked away from the truth of who we are and instead of this truth we have given right and wrong, a pour substitution of the profoundness of the truth we actually come from and belong to live.

    1. We have walked away from the truth by compromising what we originally knew to be true. In this compromise we seek to have something close to representing what is true and not true, and we then fall for the Right and the Wrong as a form of understanding life and what happens around us. But Nico, you have nailed it by saying that by walking away from the truth and using Right and Wrong, this is a very poor substitution for what we know is our natural and innate way of living.

  30. Joshua, I can really feel how ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ are not true, I spent much of my childhood and adulthood trying to get things ‘right’ and say the ‘right’ thing, this is exhausting and left me feeling anxious and unconfident, not knowing who I was. Being true is very different, it is our natural way.

  31. “In God there is just the understanding of what is true and not true; it just is.’ For most of my life I felt this about many things and it was only when I was questioned that I would, and still occaissionally do, start to question and doubt my own feelings. When we know something is true and there is no question, it comes from the whole body and feels very different than when we are told something that comes from the intellect/the mind.

  32. It is so important to talk about the impact that judgement has, how it makes us feel both to receive and to give. At the core of judgement is an imposing lack of understanding, something which no one would ever actively choose to do, but it has become so engrained in how we relate to eachother the world over it can go largely unchecked, unchallenged and taken for granted as the way we all are in everyday life, not giving credit to how much it hurts to be this way.

  33. Joshua, this article is very wise and feels very true; ‘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.’ I have noticed how I have judged others and so placed them in a box of being ‘wrong’, there is then no connection and my body feels rigid and I have been judged by others which feels like others are only seeing what is not me and not seeing all that is me – this feels very limiting and does not allow a connection between us because I am seen as being ‘wrong’.

  34. “In God there is just the understanding of what is true and not true; it just is.” what a beautiful knowing we are all held in and reflected to us .Where has judgement come from and how horrible a feeling it is to both offer and receive in our bodies and something at the root of society that does not have any place or belong to in the love we all are and come from.

  35. Judgement is so awful to feel – be it from another or from oneself. To have judgment we have to look at things in our world as either Right or as Wrong…but this limits our perception of things tremendously and does not allow the natural flexibility of our loving nature to allow things to be either true or not true. In a world where we can see things as true or not true there is no judgement of what is not true, there is simply an allowing of how things are, with no imposition to change things, just simply a reflection of the truth forever shining and lighting the way. This melts away all Rights and Wrongs, and hence leaves a life far more simple and loving to live.

  36. The moment we judge we are truly wrong 😉 as we are caught in the rights and wrongs of that which is not truth. In truth there is no right or wrong, only the what is.

  37. When we judge, we are choosing to see life based on the doing over the being. The question is why do we do that? Isolating the doing from the being helps us to reduce the other and ourselves away from our divinity and walk as merely human.

  38. Beautiful Joshua. In judgement we can pigeon-hole ourselves and others. She was wrong, he was also wrong ad I am right. I am better, more – or conversely, I am terrible, less, always in the wrong and a failure. Judgement doesn’t ask us to open to the all-knowing wisdom we have within us. It tells us to stay at the very superficial level of life and keep going down this treadmill that leaves us in a haggard heap with war-torn relationships as well. Judgement keeps us in the reduction we choose to live.
    Love – which holds absolutely no judgement is always calling us to be more, to access more of the innate depth we all have. It asks us to let go of our pride that is holding on for dear life to right and wrong.
    Eventually, all of us, in our own time, will have to choose the latter.

  39. I was not brought up in any particular religion but ‘being right’ and using judgment was something I went for. I guess, not having a relationship with Truth has something to answer for here. For me ‘being right’ gave me a sense of validation that I longed for from outside. Your article prompted me to go back to this amazing article about Truth and it is just very confirming to feel Truth inside myself ignited again.

  40. An amazing lightbulb moment reading this blog today Joshua that if I find myself in the ‘wrong’ the thing to do is to dust myself off and learn from what has happened … and ‘God is accessible through nothing more than a True Loving Way of being with all’ … this blows the whole idea of sin an forgiveness out of the water, and shows us how we can live in a truly loving way with us and all others.

  41. “Right and wrong are the same sides of an illusionary coin, a coin that most perceive to have them on opposite sides.” Listening to a discussion on the radio yesterday about the ethics of being morally right I voiced to the air ‘ but what about truth?’ As you say “Right is not better than wrong in God’s eyes, for it is not about perfection as there is no judgment…..There is only what is true and what is not true. “

  42. “He is Love, and He will always hold us in Love regardless of the behaviours we choose to live”

    Thank you for this reminder of the beauty of God’s love, it has given me an opportunity to feel it again.

  43. Beautiful what you have shared thank you Joshua, I have been so caught up in the right and wrong in religion which was an absolute way of separation from the love that we are, there is simply no love in the judgment that the right and wrong bring,” 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.”
