I have a couple of notebooks in my bed, and I caught a glimpse in one of them: love one day at a time.
It seems that society conspires against the peace that comes from the way of living: society wants you to chase something far away, and while you chase it, make vision boards, mind movies, bombastic declarations, and get caught up in the Desire Trap, which I'd like to rename Wanting Trap.
And although the best things come to you as side effect, not as results of goal setting, although what works in like is taking care of the process, keeping your eye on what you are doing, not concerned with big goals, or the future, most people today are caught up in the Wanting Trap, and live a life of unhappiness, and underachieving.

I was researching this whole Third Eye humbug on the internet.
Of all the "supernatural" abilities people want, this seems to take the prize!
People want to be special, want to stand out, want to amaze people, but they don't want to pay the price. Please check if you are part of "people". My hunch is that if you tell the truth, you'll find that you are.
Before I get to the question in the title, let's look at a similar question: what is the difference between a judgment and an assessment?
The difference is subtle.
1. judgment is hiding that personal agenda: the speaker needs to be placed about the judged thing or person to be "authorized" to judge... "I have the right to judge, because I am better, smarter, because I-I-I-I-I whatever. Desire for the self alone.
2. a judgment is always systemic. It uses two pronged concepts, good/bad, right/wrong, smart/stupid... systemic judgments.

None of the judgment can be verified in reality, while much of the assessment is a part of reality: visible, trackable,
Sophie, after I read your last article I checked my last 2 friends' soul corrections. My one friend who pushed me to a certain level had a soul correction Forget Thyself. My friend now, whom I met this year, also has a soul correction Forget Thyself. Interesting. Do we get attracted to certain soul corrections or maybe we get along better with some soul corrections that matches our soul correction?
The answer is not that simple.
We know that we have two selves. One self doesn't change. We can call it the soul. Or the Self. Or whatever you want to call it, it is unchanging. It is the same in you, it is the same in me... it is, maybe, the Self of what's possible for the human species...
Obviously your other self is far from that, it is changing, it is reactive, put together, selfish, and complaining, and haughty, and bossy... all the things you see everywhere.
