ACIM Self-Study: Judgment and the Authority Problem


⁴When the Bible says “Judge not that ye be not judged,” it means that if you judge the reality of others you will be unable to avoid judging your own. (ACIM, T-3.VI.1:4)

Judgment ay base sa illusion of separation from God, which in reality ay imposibleng mangyari. Speaking from the level of the mind/spirit ha, not the body.

So from that perspective, pag nag-judge tayo ng others ay nagju-judge rin tayo ng ating sarili.

Sabi nga ni Wayne Dyer, “When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.”

Bakit? Kasi there are no “others.”

Gaya ng nabanggit natin sa last topic, tayong lahat yung Body of Christ.

Kung ano yung ginagawa natin sa isang part, ginagawa rin natin sa lahat.

The choice to judge rather than to know is the cause of the loss of peace. (ACIM, T-3.VI.2:1)

Kapag nag-jujudge tayo, we are under the influence of the ego. Yung ego, hindi niya alam yung peace.

Ang alam lang ng ego ay sin, guilt, punishment, at iba pang fear-based thoughts. At para matakasan yun, pino-project ng ego yun sa iba.

⁴Judgment always involves rejection. ⁵It never emphasizes only the positive aspects of what is judged, whether in you or in others. (ACIM, T-3.VI.2:4-5)

Judgment involves rejection kasi base ‘to sa likes and dislikes. Laging opposites.

So kahit na yung positive aspects ang nila-like natin, parang implied dun na may aspects rin tayong dini-dislike, and therefore, nire-reject.

Laging may separation between opposites.

¹⁰In the end it does not matter whether your judgment is right or wrong. ¹¹Either way you are placing your belief in the unreal. (ACIM, T-3.VI.2:10-11)

So it does not matter kung right or wrong judgment. Judgment pa rin yun.

At dahil nga judgment ay base sa separation, to judge means to believe in the illusion of separation, which is unreal.

You have no idea of the tremendous release and deep peace that comes from meeting yourself and your brothers totally without judgment. (ACIM, T-3.VI.3:1)

Para ma-meet natin yung iba without judgment, kailangan ma-meet muna natin yung sarili natin without judgment rin.

Inner peace muna bago world peace.

⁶In the presence of knowledge all judgment is automatically suspended, and this is the process that enables recognition to replace perception. (ACIM, T-3.VI.3:6)

So paano natin ma-mi-meet yung sarili natin without judgment? Babalik tayo dun sa “know thy self.”

Kapag naalala na natin kung sino talaga tayo, yung perception napapalitan ng recognition (re-knowing). Yung judgment napapalitan na ng forgiveness.

You are very fearful of everything you have perceived but have refused to accept. (ACIM, T-3.VI.4:1)

Yung mga bagay na nape-perceive natin outside of ourselves, yung mga jinu-judge natin, ay mga bagay na hindi natin matanggap sa ating sarili.

Yung mga bagay na hindi natin inaaccept, pino-project natin as judgment.

⁸Yet if you wish to be the author of reality, you will insist on holding on to judgment. (ACIM, T-3.VI.5:8)

May 2 distinct characteristics ang ego: (1) the need to be right, at (2) the need to be in control.

Yun ang underlying reason behind judgment – para ma-fill yung mga needs na yun.

Nagkakaron ng mga needs na yun pag ang author ng buhay natin ay yung ego at hindi si God.

God offers only mercy. ²Your words should reflect only mercy, because that is what you have received and that is what you should give. (ACIM, T-3.VI.6:1-2)

God is not a judgmental god, but a merciful God.

So kung hindi nang-jujudge si God, bakit tayo magju-judge? Walang basis… unless, yung ego ang ginagawa nating author ng buhay natin.

²There is, however, only one cause for all of them: the authority problem. ³This is “the root of all evil.” (ACIM, T-3.VI.7:2-3)

Money is NOT the root of all evil. Desires are NOT the root of all evil.

The root of all evil is pag yung ego ang author of money, author of desires, author ng kung anu pa man.

Nakakatakot ang story pag yung ego ang author. Nakaka-in-love naman pag si God.

²When you have an authority problem, it is always because you believe you are the author of yourself and project your delusion onto others. ³You then perceive the situation as one in which others are literally fighting you for your authorship. ⁴This is the fundamental error of all those who believe they have usurped the power of God. (ACIM, T-3.VI.8:2-4)

Dito na lalabas yung ego needs: need to be right at need to be in control.

Pag nagmamaru tayo, pag yung ego ang author, gusto natin yung story natin ang masusunod.

Pag merong hindi swak sa story na gusto natin, kontrabida yun!

Dyan na rin papasok yung mga judgments base dun sa story na inimbento natin.

⁴This is the fundamental error of all those who believe they have usurped the power of God. (ACIM, T-3.VI.8:4)

Eto yung blasphemy, kapag may ginagawa tayo “in the name of god.”

Gusto nating version of god e yung god na fit sa story natin.

⁶He is, however, eager to undo it, not to punish His children, but only because He knows that it makes them unhappy. (ACIM, T-3.VI.8:6)

Pag nagagawa natin yun, it never makes God unhappy. It makes us unhappy.

God is merciful, kaya hindi punishment ang ibinabalik sa atin, kundi yung happiness natin – “God willing” kung willing rin tayo.

⁶To deny His Authorship is to deny yourself the reason for your peace, so that you see yourself only in segments. (ACIM, T-3.VI.10:6)

Kung hindi tayo willing, in denial tayo.

Kapag in denial tayo of God as the Author, dinedeny rin natin yung reason for our peace.

⁴Judgment always imprisons because it separates segments of reality by the unstable scales of desire. ⁵Wishes are not facts. (ACIM, T-3.VI.11:4-5)

Ayun nga, judgment imprisons kasi kinukulong natin yung reality base sa ating desires.

Okay lang naman yung desires, as long as aware tayo na magkaiba yung story at reality.

Story is fiction, reality is fact.

⁸Instead of “Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven” say, “Will ye first the Kingdom of Heaven,” and you have said, “I know what I am and I accept my own inheritance.” (ACIM, T-3.VI.11:8)

Peace yung Kingdom of Heaven, at inheritance natin yun from God. Nasa sa atin na yun, so hindi na natin kailangang hanapin yun outside of ourselves.
