I once had a dream where I am transported into the future. I look around and I see a thriving Earth and a world at peace. And I think, elatedly, we did it! We humans did it! We made the transformation into the new consciousness!
As I walk around, I see a woman with the most interesting garb. It has a traditional feel, colorful, and somehow it conveys wholeness and wisdom.
Around her on the ground are seated several children and I realize she is their teacher.
The students are reading passages that they have written and one of them reads something that refers to or implies judgment.
The teacher gently explains to the child that in Eudomy, which is the name of the land where they live, there isn’t any judgment. I understand that she doesn’t mean we don’t do judgment because it’s bad. She means in Eudomy judgment simply doesn’t exist. It has no reality.
As I pondered that dream I was intrigued by the name of this land where peace reigns and the entire Earth is thriving, this land in which we humans have made our evolutionary leap out of the egoic consciousness of separateness and into the consciousness of interdependence and oneness—the consciousness of Love.
Eu, of course, is a prefix which means good or true. Dom refers to an area of jurisdiction. A kingdom, for instance, is the area in which a king has jurisdiction.
So the dream was telling me that in Eudomy— the “land” where goodness and truth have jurisdiction, the “land” where humans have awakened and the Earth is thriving—judgment doesn’t exist.
Judgment is something we hold very dear in our present ego-based mind-state and world, and when you start to pay attention you will be astonished to discover how much judgment is a staple of how we see things, how we think about things, how we interact. When we live in that domain of judgment we are living in a “land” of falsehood and illusion.
It is said that in the Garden of Eden it was the introduction of the idea of good and evil that first severed humans from their authentic knowing, their authentic, unmediated existence within the Source of Being. When the idea of good and evil arose in the mind—in other words the idea of judgment—suddenly humans’ perception of the world fractured. Consciousness became split off from its moorings in the Knowing of Oneness. Humans became alienated from Earth, each other, the Source of all existence.
It’s been a challenging sojourn through this illusory domain, but we’re beginning to to get it. We’re beginning to recognize that before us is the possibility of a remarkable future if we’re willing to lay down our illusions, beginning with the illusion of judgment that is so essential to maintaining the illusion of separateness.
