Criticism has become a part of life on the Earth plane. The whole of humanity tends to react to things with criticism and judgment. This can be seen from individuals and the media, to government and society. Why is this? How many times a day do you criticize something or someone? Why do you do this? You do this because the issue or person you criticize acts as a mirror for you. The Self part of you does not want to see the mirror, because when it looks in that mirror, it sees what it needs to change. In retaliation, the Self ridicules, makes fun of and criticizes, then it runs away from the mirror, so it will not have to face it.
