Discrimination is a Good Thing!

If we are politically correct we are not supposed to discriminate. Even using that word raises eyebrows. Discrimination is considered a bad thing. But, is that true?

Discrimination

We use our power of discrimination to distinguish between right and wrong, beautiful and ugly, desirable and undesirable, and everything in between.

With discrimination we make distinctions, choices, judgment calls.

Our discrimination and choices determine our future – our fate, because we build our future from our choices in the present moment. Therefore, our discrimination is important for our well-being. 

Being a slave

It’s when we are unconscious of our power of discrimination that we fall into superstitions, blind beliefs, subconscious habits, and prejudices. We don’t think about it, but just do it! We’re not really making choices at all! We’re just being a slave to unconscious habits, conditioning and blind beliefs!

Plus, we flock together our prejudices and thinking, gather with friends and others that think the same way we do, which reinforces our habitual patterns. We condition ourselves.

Discrimination can reward us!

We have to be brave to consciously discriminate because we are accepting responsibility for our choices. But, we also reap the rewards.

We liberate ourselves from the whim of fear.

Until next time consider this quote to reflect upon: 

“Our purpose in life is to see Light, to discriminate between right and wrong.”

Eugene Fersen, Aphorisms of The Lightbearer, page 176.

  1. ‘Yes’ or ‘no’ is making a choice using our mental powers of responsible discrimination. We are empowered with free will by God. Past negative choices have caused us much pain, yet Now we can help All Humanity by letting our hearts of Love consciously lead us to discriminate for our harmony. The key mental power is being conscious; key emotional power is Sincerity, with Love as the motivator. In the hope You find Love close at hand, Portia SLB

    Wonderful!

  4. If the word, “Discrimination” was used exactly as you say, then yes. But it’s not! It’s been taken and used as a weapon to separate, alienate and disenfranchised. And it’s been proven that in some hands can be devastating to anything deemed less than by the one wielding the weapon and the effects that take a while to correct. So I will make yes or no decisions based on the benefits or lack of, for myself and leave “discrimination” alone. Who am I to judge anything good or bad. I may not be right for me and perfect for someone else! I will let God do the discriminating and I will just trust in him. kp
