I think we spend too much time staring at people and making judgements about them ... we are constantly and unconsciously judging and making threat assessments. We forget what it means to simply observe, and accept.

Today I had some direct and practical experience in observing and accepting. Today I realized just how ingrained this "judging" thing is in my psyche. Although judging isn't a bad thing, necessarily ... I realized that we really do take it to extremes, and I know that unfounded or discompassionate judgement--even when it remains unexpressed--is often a very hurtful thing.


Amen.

Spinoza: "I have made a ceaseless effort not to ridicule, not to bewail, not to scorn human actions, but to understand them."

Wilde: "[T]he first thing I have got to do is to free myself from any possible bitterness of feeling against the world."

I'm curious what you think.

Believe it or not, I think you might be right in saying that more communication would probably be good for the world. ;)
