JUDGMENT is spiritual discernment, which is the inner voice through whose expression we come into a larger realization of ourselves. (See Charles Fillmore, from The Twelve Powers of Man.) This is not the judgment that is limited to ego but the divine judgment that relies on Spirit. As Ed Rabel says, Judgment is the deeper connection of the mind to discern, evaluate, and make decisions. Judgment Day is not a day that we are waiting for in the future, it is the moment in which we experience the difference between what is true and what is false. It is not our responsibility to condemn, damn or judge others. The universe will judge everyone by our own thoughts and actions.

The Disciple who represents Judgment is James: of Zebedee, which means supplanter, that which Jehovah has given.  Judgment carefully weighs a question and draws a conclusion.  James was the first disciple to be transformed through the appearance of death (see decapitation Acts 12:1-2)  The body’s seat of Judgment is in the solar plexus, which is also called justice or discrimination. SOLOMON represents Judgment in the Old Testament., which means whole, complete, peaceful.  Solomon means the state of consciousness when soul is unified with wisdom and love.  Solomon was a great judge.
