Condemnation Quotes

"When you condemn something, you enter into relationship with it. Your condemnation bonds you to it. Condemn evil and you will be bonded to evil. Condemn a form of ignorance and you will be bonded to it. If you do not want to be bonded to those influences that are holding you back or clouding your vision or disabling you from gaining access to your own inner resources, then do not use condemnation. Emotion, whether it be love or hate or avoidance, always bonds you to the thing you are responding to. If you hate another person, hate will bond you to that person. If you love a person, love will bond you to that person. Love is the preferred bond, but in many cases you may not want to be bonded to the person at all.That is why condemnation is so inappropriate. Condemnation also disables you from gaining access to what you know, so it has a double liability. It bonds you to that from which you are trying to separate yourself, and it clouds your vision and disables you from gaining access to what you know." [2]

"Idealism is the attempt not to accept the world as it is. It justifies blame and condemnation. It establishes expectations of a life that does not yet exist and thus renders you vulnerable to grave disappointment. Your idealism fortifies your condemnation." [3]

"The world only needs Knowledge and the expressions of Knowledge. How can it be worthy of condemnation?" [4]

"With Knowledge you will learn how to serve and you will forget how to condemn." [5]

"You must enter uncertainty to find Knowledge. What does this mean? It simply means you are giving up false assumptions, self-comforting ideas and the luxury of self- condemnation. Why is self-condemnation a luxury? Because it is easy and does not require you to examine the truth. You accept it because it is acceptable in this world, and it gives you a great deal to talk about with your friends. It evokes sympathy. Therefore, it is easy and weak." [6]

"Error calls for correction, not condemnation. You would condemn yourself and think that God would then follow your example and render to you a greater condemnation. That is why people have made God in their image, and that is why you must unlearn what you have made, so that you may find what you know and so that your creations in this world may be for good and have lasting value." [7]

"Allow the world to be as it is, and your condemnation of it will not come back to haunt you. For without condemnation, there is only the opportunity to give. This will draw upon your Knowledge, which will give of its own, and you will be the vehicle for its giving." [8]

"Without blame and judgment, stillness becomes accessible because it is natural. Without the imposition of your condemnation, your mind is allowed to be still. In stillness there is no blame or judgment." [9]

"Without condemnation upon the world and upon yourself, the mind is at peace already." [10]

"All the problems of the world can be solved without condemnation, for without condemnation all problems in the world will be solved." [11]

"You must learn discernment. Learning this will take time. In this, you learn to utilize all experiences for good, for no experience should be condemned. It should always be used for learning and preparation. In this way, you will not justify error, but use it for your own development and for the advancement of the world." [12]

"Your condemnation of yourself is unfounded. It is based merely on assumptions." [13]

"How can you be angry when the world serves you? When you recognize how much the world is serving you, which can only be recognized in the context of Knowledge, you will then end all of your hatred towards the world, all of your condemnation of the world and all of your resistance to the world. This will confirm your true destiny, your true origin and your true purpose for being in the world." [14]

"Recognize how you still let the world overtake you and how you need to reapply yourself with greater certainty and determination. Do this objectively. Condemnation will only discourage you and will only lead you to quit your participation, for condemnation is simply the decision not to participate and the justification for not participating." [15]

"Truth is simple and evident to all who look for truth and to all who look without the weight of condemnation or judgment." [16]

"God realizes that without Knowledge, without an awareness of the greater intelligence that the Creator has placed within all human minds and hearts, people will act selfishly, foolishly and destructively. They will act without wisdom, without foresight and without accountability. Yet there is no condemnation here. God knows that humanity is not developed enough, is not wise enough and is not advanced enough to be able to purely maintain the intent of each of the world’s great traditions." [17]
